2019 might have been air travel’s high water mark

On March 26th, the TSA recorded that it screened only 203,858 passengers. On the same day a year ago, the TSA screened 2,487,162 passengers. That is a decline of over 90%. Furthermore, it represents the fewest number of passengers that the TSA has screened in the last ten years according to TSA Public Affairs spokesperson, Lisa Farbstein.

I just canceled my last two flights for later in April, this week. I do not believe that air travel is going to come roaring back and, very possibly, it may never again approach the volumes seen in 2019. Business is going to be tight for the foreseeable future, and business is going to finally get more comfortable with remote technology, because they are being forced to. It remains to be seen if and when people get over their fear of being crammed together in close spaces.
