Air Carrier Financial Statistics (Yellow Book)

Thursday, December 10, 2020

NOTE: This product is no longer being updated

This report presents airline financial statistics obtained from carrier reports to DOT on BTS Form 41 financial schedules. Effective with a rule (ER-1297) adopted July 1982, the filing frequency for income statement and balance sheet data was changed from quarterly to semiannually for medium regional carriers with annual operating revenue less than $10 million. Semiannual financial data for these carriers appear as a supplement in June and December issues of this publication. Classification of carriers within groupings is reviewed annually. When a carrier's frequency of filing financial data is changed because of reclassification, it may be necessary to use prior publications to obtain historical data. Data include income statement and balance sheet figures, in separate sections, by carrier entity for the most recent quarter and 12-month period and similar data for like periods in the previous year.

Data are available since 1998.
