NOTES: The Bureau of Transportation Statistics computes the Air Travel Price Index values using the Fisher Index formula. U.S. origin only measures change in the cost of itineraries originating in the United States, whether the destinations are domestic or international. Foreign origin only measures change in the cost of itineraries with a foreign origin and a U.S. destination. All origins (Full-scope ATPI) combines the U.S.- and foreign-origin itineraries. See source for balance of data.
