The US last weekend saw the highest amount of air travelers since the pandemic began — as throngs of spring breakers flew to sunny beaches for the annual party.

On both Friday and Sunday, more than 1.3 million people were screened at airports by the Transportation Security Administration — the most since the coronavirus put a dent in travel a year ago.

The increase in fliers coincides with revelers heading south for spring break.

Over the weekend, Miami Beach was teeming with partiers, who at times became unruly and clashed with police.

From Friday through Sunday, about 150 people were reportedly arrested across the waterfront hotspot.
