U.S. screens 1.28 million people at U.S. airports

WASHINGTON, Dec 28 (Reuters) - The U.S. Transportation Security Administration said it screened 1.28 million passengers on Sunday at U.S. airports, the highest number since mid-March, when the coronavirus pandemic slashed travel demand.

The number of U.S. air travelers is still about 50% lower than the same date last year, but Sunday was the sixth day in the last 10 that volume surpassed 1 million. The rise comes despite public health officials urging Americans to avoid holiday travel this year. (Reporting by David Shepardson; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
