International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Data Needs

Department of Transportation, Research and Innovative Technology Administration, Bureau of Transportation Statistics, Office of Airline Information, Accounting and Reporting Directive
No. 283
Issue Date: October 31, 2007
Effective Date: January 1, 2007

As a party to the Convention on International Civil Aviation (Treaty), the United States is obligated to provide ICAO with financial and statistical data on operations of U.S. air carriers (Article 67).  The Bureau of Transportation Statistic’s (BTS’s) Office of Airline Information (OAI) administers this program for the Department of Transportation (DOT).

Over 99% of the data filed with ICAO is supplied from the Form 41 financial Schedules and the T-100 traffic Schedules.  With these Schedules and the BTS Form EF, the OAI staff compiles 8 different ICAO reports for the carriers listed on Table A.

The carriers listed in Table A are required to file BTS Form EF (enclosed with instructions) for calendar year 2007 with OAI by March 31, 2008.  All of the data items designated on the table are to be completed on Form EF by each carrier.  Form EF may be downloaded from our website at:  http://www.bts.gov/programs/airline_information/forms/.

The data reported on Form EF must be consistent with the data filed in the Form 41 reports, i.e. Form 41, Schedule B-1, Account 1668 should equal the sum of Depreciation (Flight and Ground) reported on Form EF. 

Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 C.F.R.) Part 248 requires each carrier to file annually with OAI two copies of its audit report; if an audit is performed (annual reports are acceptable in lieu of audit reports).  Carriers are requested to submit a third copy for submission to ICAO; however, if confidentiality is granted to the audit report, an extra copy is not needed.  The mailing address for Form EF and the audit/annual report is:

U.S. Department of Transportation
Research and Innovative Technology Administration
Bureau of Transportation Statistics, OAI, RTS-42
1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE, East Building, E34
Washington, DC 20590

This directive is issued under authority delegated in 14 C.F.R. Section 385.19 (h) of Part 385 of DOT’s regulations.  Accounting and Reporting Directive 282 for 2006 is hereby rescinded.

Questions about this directive may be directed to Nancy Sharpe at (202) 366-2261.
