NOTES: Rank order by total enplaned passengers on air carriers of all types, including foreign air carriers. Data differ from those in table 4-6, which include only enplanements on large certificated U.S. air carriers. In previous years, the source of the data for this table was the FAA which includes information on Air Taxi operators. The current table uses data from the Office of Airline Information, which does not collect data on Air Taxi operators.
