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

Thursday, November 17, 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 66.2 million scheduled domestic and international passengers in August 2011. This is a 0.1 percent decrease from August 2010 (Table 1).  The August 2011 passenger total was 1.8 percent above that of two years ago in August 2009 but 2.4 percent below the level of August 2008 (Table 2).

BTS, a part of DOT's Research and Innovative Technology Administration, also reported that U.S. airlines carried 0.2 percent fewer domestic passengers in August 2011 than in August 2010. The system load factor of 85.6 percent and the domestic load factor of 85.7 percent were record highs for the month of August. The number of international passengers on U.S. carriers in August 2011 was unchanged from August 2010 (Table 13).

U.S. airlines carried 493.7 million total system passengers during the first eight months of 2011, up 2.0 percent from the same period in 2010 (Table 2). Domestically, they carried 429.5 million passengers, up 1.8 percent from 2010 (Table 8). Internationally, they carried 64.2 million passengers, up 3.0 percent from 2010 (Table 14). Systemwide, domestic and international totals were all the highest for January through August 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 up 0.3 percent in August 2011 from August 2010. The International load factor was down 0.2 percent from August 2010. From January through August, systemwide capacity, measured by available seat-miles, was up 3.2 percent, domestic was up 2.0 percent and international was up 6.0 percent compared to the first eight months of 2010 (Tables 1, 7, 13).
