Notes for editors:
1.IATA (International Air Transport Association) represents over 270 airlines comprising 95% of international scheduled air traffic.
2.On 16-18 November 2004 IATA hosted its first "Simplifying the Business" Conference in Geneva to kick-start an industry-wide initiative to move the industry to 100% e-ticketing by the end of 2007.  Related efforts will leverage technology to improve passenger processing though common use check-in kiosks, bar coded boarding passes and radio frequency identification for baggage.
3.IATA has launched a Fuel Action Campaign introducing measures to reduce the amount of fuel consumed, simplify business practices, reduce duties, fees and taxes, improve market conditions and lower the costs associated with fuel hedging. 
4.Explanation of measurements:
    a.RPK: Revenue Passenger Kilometres measures actual passenger traffic
    b.ASK: Available Seat Kilometres measures available passenger capacity
    c.PLF: Passenger Load Factor is % of ASKs used.  In comparison of 2004 to 2003, PLF indicates point differential between the periods compared.
    d.FTK: Freight Tonne Kilometres measures actual freight traffic
    e.ATK: Available Tonne Kilometres measures available total capacity (combined passenger and cargo)
5.IATA statistics cover international scheduled air traffic; domestic traffic is not included.
6.All figures are provisional and represent total reporting at time of publication plus estimates for missing data.
7.Due to uncertainties in the adoption of the new ICAO statistical definitions by reporting carriers, care should be taken when making year comparisons.
