said director David Pekoski. The TSA will screen more than 30 million travelers during that period, and the three busiest days will traditionally be the Tuesday and Wednesday before Thanksgiving and the Sunday after.

You can’t count on quiet driving on the roads either — the majority of Americans will be returning home by car, and nearly 49 million people will travel more than 50 miles from November 22-26. Based on AAA forecasts, this year will be the third highest number of holiday travelers since 2000, returning to the pre-pandemic level.

Thanksgiving and Black Friday

Thanksgiving itself is a more relaxed day during the holiday season, especially compared to the days leading up to it.

The weekend after Thanksgiving

The Transportation Security Administration expects a similar level, with 2.9 million air passengers expected to arrive on November 26. United Airlines also announced that Sunday will be one of the company’s busiest travel days since before the pandemic. According to the company’s press release, more than 517,000 people will travel on United flights that day, which is more than 60,000 more than last year.

Although data provider Cirium expects Sunday to be the biggest travel day of the year, Monday will be just as busy – while Sunday is typically the busiest travel day for repatriation, Monday is also a popular day. To return home after Thanksgiving.

American Airlines, for example, expects Monday to be its second busiest day of the holiday week, with about six thousand flights scheduled.

In the United States, the end of November always brings crowds, lines, chaos and homecomings, but this year Thanksgiving will be especially crowded. Hungarians traveling abroad at this time should be careful not to get carried away by the holiday madness.
