Where these statistics come from

Statistical information is collected first hand from airlines through the following data collection schemes:

  • Monthly Aggregated Traffic Statistics (MATS) (monthly) ​
  • Route Area Statistics (monthly) 
  • On-Flight Origin-Destination Statistics (OFODS) (monthly) 
  • Annual Air Transport Statistics (AATS) (annual) 

Airlines, IATA members as well as non-members, are invited to participate in the data collections. Participating airlines receive free of charge (extracts) of the respective Monthly Statistics or WATS. Airlines participating in the OFODS and/or RAS collections can also access microdata files of the respective collections for a cost-recovery fee.
