Air travel is up, however not up 2019 levels. Prior to the pandemic, daily passenger volumes of 2+ million were the norm rather than the exception. At the onset of the pandemic, daily passenger throughput fell as low as 100,000 in April 2020, before slowly climbing back to its current level. As of August 10, the TSA performed an average of 1.44 million safety checks per day this year, compared to 940,000 during the same period of last year and 2.32 million in 2019.
