A transmittal letter must accompany your submission of the Passenger Origin-Destination Survey (Survey). Several carriers are submitting the Survey without a transmittal letter.
This transmittal letter must state, among other things, the overall record and passenger counts. These counts are extremely important to the editing process, since they enable us to know whether any records were lost or misread in the process.
The transmittal letter should have the following:
Finally, I want to reiterate the request made in my letter of August 23, 1995. In that letter, I requested those carriers still filing Survey data on hard copy forms, to submit their data on PC Diskettes. We hope that compliance is achieved with the September 1995 quarterly data due on November 15, 1995. If you have any questions, please call Don Bright on (202) 366-4373.
This action is taken under authority delegated in 14 C.F.R. Part 385.27(b) of the Department's regulations. Your cooperation is appreciated.
