The Friday before the Fourth of July holiday is one of the busiest travel days of the year. An average of 2.2 million passengers are screened. A record number of travelers today could top 2.6 million people according to TSA Administrator David Pekoske.
Since today will be a crazy busy day at the airport, you may want to leave plenty of extra time with lines expected to be at least twice as long as usual at the airports.
If you plan on driving, be prepared for heavy traffic and higher gas prices.
