ACCOUNTING AND REPORTING DIRECTIVE
Issue Date: 1/7/2016
Effective Date: Immediately
The Bureau of Transportation Statistics’ (BTS) Office of Airline Information (OAI) requires all-cargo carriers that hold a 418 Certificate to report annually, Schedule T-8 data as outlined in 14 CFR Part 241, Section 25. The carriers required to submit T-8 data are listed in Attachment B.
BTS has determined that air carriers are not required to submit the Traffic and Capacity Statistics portion of Schedule T-8 – line 7 through line 13. The carriers will continue to submit the Operating Revenues and Expenses portion of Schedule T-8 – line 1 through line 6.
Carriers currently submit detailed monthly T-100 traffic reports. From these reports, BTS or any data user can construct the Traffic and Capacity Statistics portion of Schedule T-8 because the monthly T-100 traffic reports are reported by service class and aircraft configuration, which identifies all-cargo flights. The T-100 data are available on the BTS web site at:
The Schedule T-8 data may be submitted by going to the website: https://esubmit.rita.dot.gov/ and following the instructions for creating an account and submitting reports. The T-8 data is due at OAI on March 30. The file format for submitting the data is given in Attachment A.
If you have any questions, please e-mail them to email@example.com(link sends e-mail). This action was taken under authority delegated by 14 CFR Section 385.19(b).
