Passenger Load Factor on All U.S. Scheduled Airlines (Domestic & International), June 2009-May 2011

Thursday, August 11, 2011 - The U.S. Department of Transportations Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) today reported in a release of preliminary data that U.S. airlines carried 63.8 million scheduled domestic and international passengers in May 2011. This is a 3.9 percent increase from May 2010 (Table 1).  The May 2011 passenger total was also 6.9 percent above that of two years ago in May 2009 but remained 3.3 percent below the early recession level of May 2008 (Table 2).

BTS, a part of DOTs Research and Innovative Technology Administration, also reported that U.S. airlines carried 4.0 percent more domestic passengers in May 2011 than in May 2010. The number of international passengers on U.S. carriers in May 2011 increased 3.2 percent over May 2010 (Tables 7, 13). The May 2011 load factors of 83.6 percent systemwide and 84.5 percent domestic were the highest recorded for any May (Tables 1, 7).

Additional traffic numbers can be found on the BTS website in the Airline Industry box. Click on a link in the column on the right.

Load Factor

Systemwide load factors, the combination of domestic and international, set all-time records for each month beginning with July 2009 as airlines reduced capacity. Beginning in early 2010, as passenger numbers increased, all-time high load factors resulted. In the latter half of 2010, airlines began adding new capacity, leading to less growth in load factors and, in May 2011, a reduction from the previous year. However, this trend was partly reversed in May as system and domestic load factors established record levels for the month. International capacity, measured by available seat-miles, grew 4.2 percent from May 2010 to May 2011 while overall system capacity grew 2.6 percent. The increased capacity resulted in reduced international load factors in May 2011 compared to May 2010.

Top Airlines in May

In May, Delta Air Lines carried more total system and international passengers than any other U.S. airline (Tables 4, 16) and Southwest Airlines carried the most domestic passengers (Table 10).

During the first five months of 2011, Delta carried more total system and Southwest carried more domestic passengers than any other U.S. airline (Tables 3, 9). American carried the most international passengers (Table 15).

Top Airports in May

In May, more total system and domestic passengers boarded planes at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International than at any other U.S. airport (Tables 6 and 12); and more international passengers boarded U.S. carriers at Miami International than at any other U.S. airport (Table 18).

During the first five months of 2011, more total system and domestic passengers boarded planes at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson than at any other U.S. airport (Tables 5 and 11); and more international passengers boarded U.S. carriers at Miami than at any other U.S. airport (Table 17).
