Be Prepared: TSA Expecting Busiest Summer Travel Season Ever!


According to tsa.gov, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is preparing for the agency’s busiest travel season ever, as 263 million passengers and crew are projected to pass through security checkpoints nationwide from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend – Thursday, May 23, through Tuesday, September 3.


TSA expects to screen over 10 million more passengers than last summer setting new records. During the same period last year, TSA screened 250,918,233 passengers and crew, which included nine of the top 10 busiest weeks in its history during the summer season.
“This summer we’re expecting to screen over 2.7 million travelers on peak days,” said TSA Acting Deputy Administrator Patricia Cogswell. “Our dedicated transportation security officers, inspectors, air marshals, and support personnel are working around the clock to ensure traveler security during this record breaking travel season.”




How To Avoid the Crowds

  • Passengers are encouraged to enroll in TSA Pre® or Global Entry. These programs allow passengers to speed through security without removing shoes, laptops, liquids, belts and light jackets. 
  • Be prepared for the security screening process, packing carry-on bags so they can be easily screened, and ensuring that neither you nor your bags contain prohibited items
  • Arrive early - up to two hours in advance of flight departure time for domestic travel and three hours for international flights.
