Tens of millions of Americans are hitting the road and taking to the skies this week for the Thanksgiving holiday.
The Transportation Security Adminitration expects the upcoming holiday to be one of the busiest travel periods yet.
The peak travel window for Thanksgiving is Tuesday and Wednesday, but many may already be headed to their destinations. About 4.7 million people are expected to pass through airports for the holiday week, a 6.6% jump from last year and the most since 2005, according to AAA.
Experts attribute the jump to cheaper air fares and fewer concerns about COVID-19.
The roads will be busy as well, with nearly 50 million Americans driving 50 miles or more to their holiday destinations, AAA says. That’s an increase of about 2% from a year ago.
