The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) reported today that U.S. airlines carried 67.7 million systemwide (domestic + international) scheduled service passengers in August 2013, 0.1 percent fewer than in August 2012. The systemwide total was the result of a 0.9 percent decrease in the number of domestic passengers (58.1 million) and a 5.5 percent increase in international passengers (9.6 million) (Tables 1, 7, 13).

BTS, a part of the Department’s Research and Innovative Technology Administration, reported that U.S. airlines carried 0.4 percent more total systemwide passengers during the first eight months of 2013 (502.7 million) than during the same period in 2012 (Table 2). Domestically, U.S. airlines carried 435.3 million passengers, virtually unchanged from 2012 (Table 8). Internationally, they carried 67.4 million passengers, up 3.1 percent from 2012 (Table 14). See Tables 2, 8 and 14 of Air Traffic Press Releases for previous-year data.

The August 2013 international load factor of 87.0 percent was a record high for the month of August as year-over-year growth in revenue passenger-miles exceeded expansion of international capacity (Tables 1, 7, 13). Systemwide and domestic load factors remained below the all-time August highs reached in 2011. Load factor is a measure of the use of aircraft capacity that compares Revenue Passenger-Miles (RPMs) as a proportion of Available Seat-Miles (ASMs).

Top Airlines

Monthly: In August, Delta Air Lines carried more systemwide passengers than any other U.S. airline (Table 4).  Southwest Airlines carried the most domestic passengers (Table 10) while United Airlines carried the most international passengers (Table 16). The top 10 U.S. airlines in terms of number of passengers carried 80.5 percent of systemwide passengers, up from 79.6 percent carried by the U.S. airlines that were in the top 10 in August 2012.

Year-to-date: During the first eight months of 2013, Delta carried more systemwide passengers than any other U.S. airline (Table 3).

Reporting Notes
Data are compiled from monthly reports filed with BTS by commercial U.S. air carriers detailing operations, passenger traffic and freight traffic. This release includes data received by BTS from 75 carriers as of Nov. 5 for U.S. carrier scheduled civilian operations.

Southwest and AirTran Airways are reporting as separate carriers with the exception of their financial reports.  They have one FAA SOC (single operating certificate), requiring that they utilize the same safety/operating procedures, but they have separate DOT 401 economic certificates, meaning they remain operating as separate economic entities.

Go to http://www.transtats.bts.gov/releaseinfo.asp for the complete list of reporting and non-reporting carriers. U.S. carriers’ foreign point-to-point flights are included in system and international totals. To create a customized table for passengers, flights, RPMs, ASMs and other data, including non-scheduled service, go to http://apps.bts.gov/xml/air_traffic/src/index.xml#CustomizeTable

For additional scheduled service numbers for U.S. airlines, U.S. and foreign airlines, by airline and by airport, see Passengers, Flights, Revenue Passenger-Miles, Available Seat-Miles and Load Factor.

Traffic numbers are available on the BTS website at TranStats, the Intermodal Transportation Database, at http://transtats.bts.gov.  Click on “Aviation.”  For systemwide passengers, RPMs and ASMs by carrier through August, click on “Air Carrier Summary Data (Form 41 and 298C Summary Data),” and then click on “Schedule T-1.” Use crosstabs to find scheduled service.

For domestic numbers through August and international numbers through May by origin as well as by carrier, after clicking on “Aviation,” click on “Air Carrier Statistics (Form 41 Traffic).”  Click on “T-100 Market” for system passenger numbers, “T-100 Domestic Market” for domestic or “T-100 International Market” for international.  For flights, stage length and trip length, use the appropriate T-100 Segment database. Use crosstabs to find scheduled service.

International totals in this press release consist of all U.S. carrier operations to and from the U.S. and from one foreign point to another foreign point. TranStats T-100 systemwide and international totals do not include U.S. carriers’ foreign point-to-point flights. For August, U.S. carriers reported 207,407 foreign point-to-point passengers. For January through August, U.S. carriers reported 1,590,949 foreign point-to-point passengers.

Data are subject to revision. BTS has scheduled Dec. 19 for the release of September traffic data. None of the data are from samples so measures of statistical significance do not apply.

They have one FAA SOC (single operating certificate), requiring that they utilize the same safety/operating procedures, but they have separate DOT 401 economic certificates, meaning they are operating as separate economic entities.
