The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) reported today that U.S. airlines carried 59.9 million systemwide (domestic and international) scheduled service passengers in September 2014, 3.0 percent more than in September 2013. The systemwide total was the result of a 3.4 percent increase in the number of passengers on domestic flights (52.5 million) and a 0.5 percent increase in passengers on U.S. airlines’ international flights (7.5 million) (Tables 1, 7, 13).

U.S. airlines carried 574.3 million systemwide (domestic and international) scheduled service passengers during the first nine months of 2014, 2.4 percent more than during the same period in 2013 (Table 2). Domestically, U.S. airlines carried 497.3 million passengers, up 2.3 percent from 2013 (Table 8). Internationally, they carried 77.0 million passengers, up 2.9 percent from 2013 (Table 14). See Tables 2, 8 and 14 of Air Traffic Press Releases for previous-year data.

Load Factor

The September 2014 systemwide load factor (81.9 percent) was up from 81.6 in September 2013 and equal to the all-time September high in 2011. Load factor is a measure of the use of aircraft capacity that compares demand, measured in revenue passenger-miles (RPMs), as a proportion of capacity, measured in available seat-miles (ASMs). The growth in systemwide demand (up 2.7 percent) outpaced capacity growth (up 2.4 percent) from September 2013 to September 2014 (Table 1). The domestic load factor (82.1) was a record high for the month of September, topping the previous high of 81.8 set in 2011. Domestic demand grew faster from September 2013 to September 2014 (3.7 percent) than capacity (2.2 percent), resulting in the higher load factor (Table 7).

The international load factor declined from 83.3 percent in September 2013 to 81.6 and was below the all-time September high of 83.6 in 2010 and 2012.  International demand rose 0.6 percent from September 2013 to September 2014 but was outpaced by 2.7 percent growth in capacity, resulting in the lower load factor (Table 13).

For the nine-month January-September period, systemwide (83.9) and domestic (85.0) load factors were at all-time highs, exceeding the previous highs in 2013. The international load factor (81.6) was down from 2013 (Tables 1, 7, 13).

Month of September Trends

Systemwide: For the month of September, the 2014 systemwide passenger total (59.9 million) is the highest on record, topping the previous high set in 2007. Demand, measured in RPMs, was at the highest September level, exceeding the previous record high set in 2013.  Demand has exceeded pre-recession levels every month of 2014 except February. Capacity, measured in ASMs, was at the second highest September level, but was below the September 2007 level.

Domestic: The September 2014 domestic passenger total (52.5 million) is the highest on record, topping the previous high set in 2007. Demand, measured in RPMs, reached an all-time high for September, exceeding the previous high in September 2007. Capacity was the highest since 2008 but was below the all-time September high reached in 2007. 

International: The number of passengers, demand and capacity on U.S. airlines’ international flights were the highest on record for the month of September, exceeding the previous highs in September 2013.

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 82 carriers as of Dec. 1 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 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.

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 those U.S. carriers’ foreign point-to-point flights. For September, U.S. carriers reported 119,417 foreign point-to-point passengers. For January through September, U.S. carriers reported 1,342,273 foreign point-to-point passengers.

Data are subject to revision. BTS has scheduled Jan. 15 for the release of October traffic data. None of the data are from samples so measures of statistical significance do not apply.
