Thursday, September 16, 2010 - The U.S. Department of Transportation's Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) today reported in a release of preliminary data that U.S. airlines carried 65.0 million scheduled domestic and international passengers in June 2010. This is a 2.3 percent increase from June 2009 (Table 1). The June 2010 passenger total was 4.4 percent below that of two years ago in June 2008 (Table 2).
