If you’re one of the millions of travelers hitting the skies this Labor Day weekend, the Transportation Security Administration says you should be prepared for delays at the airport.
According to the agency, Friday will be the busiest day of the weekend with more than 2.7 million travelers passing through security checkpoints.
They say they plan on screening more than 14 million travelers from Sept. 1, 2023 through Sept. 6, 2023, following a trend they’ve been seeing all summer.
