Airline executives say the omicron variant could impact the holiday travel season.

A clear look at how much holiday travel could be impacted won't be known until after it concludes.

Experts believe Dec. 23 and Jan. 3 are expected to be the busiest travel days of the season.

The Transportation Safety Administration is preparing for a surge of passengers, which is expected to be slightly less than the pandemic record set over the Thanksgiving holiday.
