The upcoming Thanksgiving holiday travel period in the U.S. is expected to be the busiest ever. That’s according to projections from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), which released its annual projections ahead of next week on November 20, 2023. 

According to the TSA, the whole period from the Friday prior to Thanksgiving, Nov. 17, which is typically the kick off of Thanksgiving travel week, through the Sunday afterwards is expected to be busy—the TSA said it expects to screen 30 million passengers over that 12 day period. However, it’s some of the busiest days that could potentially set some records.

The TSA is projecting to screen 2.6 million passengers on Tuesday, Nov. 21; 2.7 million on Wednesday, Nov. 22; and 2.9 million passengers on Sunday, Nov. 26.

That 2.9 million number for Sunday would set the record as the highest volume day ever for the TSA, beating the previous record of 2.94 million, which the TSA recorded on June 30, 2023, and the pre-pandemic record of 2.88 million, which the TSA recorded on Dec. 1, 2019, which was also a post-Thanksgiving Sunday.
