(CNN) - More than 1.4 million people were screened at U.S. airports on Friday, according the Transportation Security Administration.
That represents the biggest day for air travel in more than a year, with the previous record achieved the day before.
This new high also represents a ninth straight day of more than a million daily passengers. This week is typically a popular time for travel since some schools are on spring break.
The surge comes as federal health officials still caution against travel.
The Department of Transportation has a new campaign to remind travelers of mask requirements on all forms of transportation and in terminals.
