Friday, October 15, 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 68.4 million scheduled domestic and international passengers in July 2010. This is a 0.4 percent increase from July 2009 (Table 1). The July 2010 passenger total was 3.0 percent below that of two years ago in July 2008 (Table 2).

BTS, a part of DOT's Research and Innovative Technology Administration, also reported that U.S. airlines carried 0.6 percent fewer domestic passengers in July 2010 than in July 2009. The number of international passengers on U.S. carriers in July 2010 increased 7.5 percent over July 2009 (Tables 7, 13). The July 2010 load factors of 86.9 percent systemwide, 86.9 percent domestic and 86.7 percent international were the highest recorded for any July (Tables 1, 7, 13).
