International passenger travel generates much revenue for transportation carriers, hotels, restaurants, and other travel-related businesses. Despite the terrorist attacks, international travel can be expected to place increased demands on the nation's transportation network and pose new challenges for the transportation sector. In particular, the key gateways- airports and land border crossing- that primarily service these travel flows will continue to be affected.

Passengers transported on the top three international routes, both overseas and in the Americas, are highly seasonal, with more people traveling in July and August. Since September 2001, the number of passengers has decreased dramatically, not following the usual seasonal pattern.
