The administration said it expects to screen more than 32 million individuals from Thursday, June 27 through Monday, July 8.

We’re told the TSA believes the peak travel day will be June 28.

“We expect this summer to be our busiest ever and summer travel usually peaks over the Independence Holiday.” David Pekoske, TSA Administrator, said.

Airline passengers should be aware that security screening technologies may vary by airport. Although TSA follows strict standardized screening protocols, it is important for passengers to arrive early and listen to the guidance provided by Transportation Security Officers (TSOs).
