NOTES: This table is based on U.S. and foreign carrier data for nonstop air trade by weight between the United States and other countries. These data differ from U.S. Census Bureau shipper-based merchandise trade statistics. In addition, data for airports in this table reflect individual U.S. airports, while the value data in tables 2 and 3 and figure 2 reflect U.S. Customs ports at which air freight activity was reported. Sometimes a U.S. Customs port corresponds to an individual airport (e.g., JFK International Airport), but in other cases, a U.S. Customs port refers to a broader administrative area (e.g., Chicago, which includes O'Hare International Airport and Midway Airport).
