It seems for now that holiday travel is slowing down.

According to the TSA checkpoint data tracker, for the first time since Christmas, less than a million travelers passed through security checkpoints at airports in the U.S.

On Thursday, TSA screened 874,406 passengers, the data tracker showed.

TSA has screened more than a million people in nine of the last 13 days, Sunday being the single busiest day since the pandemic began back in March.
