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

Friday, October 14, 2011 - 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 69.8 million scheduled domestic and international passengers in July 2011. This is a 2.0 percent increase from July 2010 (Table 1).  The July 2011 passenger total was also 2.5 percent above that of two years ago in July 2009 but remained 1.0 percent below the level of July 2008 (Table 2).

BTS, a part of DOT's Research and Innovative Technology Administration, also reported that U.S. airlines carried 1.8 percent more domestic passengers in July 2011 than in July 2010. The domestic load factor of 87.2 percent was a record for July. The number of international passengers on U.S. carriers in July 2011 increased 3.3 percent over July 2010. The 9.6 million international passengers on U.S. carriers in July was a record-high for any month, topping the previous high of 9.3 million in July 2010 (Tables 7, 13).

U.S. airlines carried 427.6 million total system passengers during the first seven months of 2011, up 2.3 percent from the same period in 2010 (Table 2). Domestically, they carried 372.3 million passengers, up 2.1 percent from 2010 (Table 8). Internationally, they carried 55.3 million passengers, up 3.5 percent from 2010 (Table 14). Systemwide, domestic and international totals were all the highest for January through July since 2008. See Tables 2, 8 and 14 of Air Traffic Press Releases for previous year numbers.

Additional traffic numbers can be found on the BTS website in the Airlines and Airports box. Click on a link in the column on the right.

Load Factor

Systemwide load factors were unchanged in July 2011 from July 2010. The domestic load factor of 87.2 percent was a record for July. International load factor was down 0.3 percent from July 2010.
