WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) said it screened more than 1 million airline passengers for the first time since mid-March, when the coronavirus pandemic devastated air travel demand.

TSA said it screened a total of 3.2 million people over the prior three days as holiday air travel began in earnest, including 1.06 million on Sunday. The total was down 58% over the 7.6 million people that were screened over the same period in 2019, the agency said.
