The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) reported today that U.S. airlines carried an all-time high number of passengers in 2016 – 823.0 million systemwide, 719.0 million domestic and 103.9 million international – surpassing the previous highs reached in 2015 (Tables A, B, C).

The airlines also set all-time annual highs for systemwide, domestic and international revenue passenger miles (RPMs) and available seat-miles (ASMs).

Although passenger trips handled by airlines reached an all-time high in 2016 there were more empty seats available because airlines expanded capacity at an even greater rate. Load factor – the measure of the use of airline capacity – declined from previous years (Tables A, B, C).

The annual load factor declined from 2015 (83.8) to 2016 (83.4) because system capacity grew faster (3.9 percent increase in ASMs) than the growth in passenger travel (3.5 percent increase in RPMs) (Table A).

Annual Trends:         

Systemwide passenger enplanements (823.0 million) reached an all-time annual high, up 3.1 percent from the previous high (798.2 million) reached in 2015 (Table A). Domestic passenger enplanements (719.0 million) reached an all-time annual high, up 3.3 percent from the previous high (696.0 million) reached in 2015 (Table B). International passenger enplanements (103.9 million) reached an all-time annual high, up 1.7 percent from the previous high (102.2 million) reached in 2015 (Table C).

Systemwide RPMs (933.5 billion) reached an all-time annual high, up 3.5 percent from the previous high (902.2 billion) reached in 2015 (Table A). Domestic RPMs (660.0 billion) reached an all-time annual high, up 4.7 percent from the previous high (630.7 billion) reached in 2015 (Table B). International RPMs (273.5 billion) reached an all-time annual high, up 0.7 percent from the previous high (271.6 billion) reached in 2015 (Table C).

Systemwide ASMs (1,118.9 billion) reached an all-time annual high, up 3.9 percent from the previous high (1,077.0 billion) reached in 2015 (Table A). Domestic ASMs (780.0 billion) reached an all-time annual high, up 5.1 percent from the previous high (741.9 billion) reached in 2015 (Table B). International ASMs (338.9 billion) reached an all-time annual high, up 1.1 percent from the previous high (335.1 billion) reached in 2015 (Table C).

Systemwide load factor (83.4) was down 0.4 points from the all-time annual high (83.8) reached in 2015 (Table A). Domestic load factor (84.6) was down 0.4 points from the all-time annual high (85.0) reached in 2015 (Table B). International load factor (80.7) was down 0.3 points from the 2015 load factor (81.0) and down 1.6 points from the all-time annual high (82.3) reached in 2013 (Table C). Load factor is a measure of the use of aircraft capacity that compares the system use, measured in RPMs as a proportion of system capacity, measured in ASMs.

December 2016 U.S. Airline Scheduled Service Numbers

Load Factor

U.S. airlines’ systemwide (domestic and international) scheduled service load factor fell to 83.7 percent in December, seasonally adjusted, falling after a single month of growth from October to November (Table 1). Seasonal adjustment allows the comparing of monthly load factors to all other months.

The seasonally-adjusted load factor declined from November (84.2) to December (83.7) because system capacity grew faster (0.9 percent increase in ASMs) than the growth in passenger travel (0.3 percent increase in RPMs) (Tables 4, 7).

Explanation of seasonal adjustment

When the primary purpose is to examine monthly shifts in transportation services output and analyze short-term trends, the variation introduced by normal seasonal changes must be removed from the data. Transportation is highly seasonal, and without adjustment, the data do not give an accurate picture of underlying changes in aviation, passenger travel.

Seasonal adjustment of the data removes the seasonal events that follow a regular seasonal pattern. Changes that are not due to seasonality, such as a change in air travel resulting from economic conditions become more readily apparent.

The aviation data are seasonally adjusted for the effects of trading day, moving holidays, and data outliers.

See Seasonal Adjustment for methodology and additional explanation.

Reporting Notes

Data are compiled from monthly reports filed with BTS by commercial U.S. air carriers detailing operations, passenger traffic and freight traffic. This release includes data received by BTS from 82 carriers as of March 7 for U.S. carrier scheduled civilian operations.

Go to http://www.transtats.bts.gov/releaseinfo.asp for the complete list of reporting and non-reporting carriers. U.S. carriers’ foreign point-to-point flights are included in system and international totals. To create a customized table for passengers, flights, RPMs, ASMs and other data, including non-scheduled service, go to http://apps.bts.gov/xml/air_traffic/src/index.xml#CustomizeTable

For additional scheduled service numbers for U.S. airlines, U.S. and foreign airlines, by airline and by airport, see Passengers, Flights, Revenue Passenger-Miles, Available Seat-Miles and Load Factor.

Traffic numbers are available on the BTS website at TranStats, the Intermodal Transportation Database, at http://transtats.bts.gov.  Click on “Aviation.”  For systemwide passengers, RPMs and ASMs by carrier through December, click on “Air Carrier Summary Data (Form 41 and 298C Summary Data),” and then click on “Schedule T-1.” Use crosstabs to find scheduled service.

For domestic numbers through December and international numbers through September by origin as well as by carrier, click on “Aviation,” then click on “Air Carrier Statistics (Form 41 Traffic).”  Click on “T-100 Market” for system passenger numbers, “T-100 Domestic Market” for domestic or “T-100 International Market” for international.  For flights, stage length and trip length, use the appropriate T-100 Segment database. Use crosstabs to find scheduled service.

International totals in this press release consist of all U.S. carrier operations to and from the U.S. and from one foreign point to another foreign point. TranStats T-100 systemwide and international totals do not include U.S. carriers’ foreign point-to-point flights. For December, U.S. carriers reported 68,834 foreign point-to-point passengers. For January through December, U.S. carriers reported 1,144,651 foreign point-to-point passengers.

Data are subject to revision. BTS has scheduled March 27 for the release of U.S. and foreign airline annual traffic data for 2016. BTS has scheduled April 13 for the release of U.S. airlines January traffic data. None of the data are from samples so measures of statistical significance do not apply.
