Travelers are taking to the air again.

Transportation Security Administration has released new numbers that showed almost 1.3 million people traveled on Sunday.

According to TSA data, that's the highest number of travelers since Jan. 3.

Analysts believe the influx is picking up as students across the country travel for Spring Break.

And as more people take to the air, TSA recommends that travelers use masks to keep themselves and others safe amid the pandemic.
