aThe 2005 and 2014 totals for the top 50 airports will not sum from the individual airports because some top 50 airports in 2015 were not in the top 50 in earlier years.

bThe all U.S. airports include Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and U.S. Pacific Trust Territories and Possessions.

NOTES:

Previous versions of this table included only U.S. air carriers and are not comparable. Beginning in October 2002, data reports were expanded to include data for carriers that fly aircraft with 60 seats or less or having a payload capacity of 18,000 lbs. or less.
