Passenger Boarding (Enplanement) and All-Cargo Data for U.S. Airports

Passenger boarding (enplanement) and all-cargo data is extracted from the FAA's Air Carrier Activity database. This database supports the FAA's airport categories for use in apportionment formula calculations under the Airport Improvement Program (AIP) and Bipartisan Infrastructure Law programs.
More about the collection and use of passenger and all-cargo data »

Passenger boarding and all-cargo data is collected for a full calendar year and is used in calculating airport categories and entitlements for the next full fiscal year (i.e., calendar year 2022 data determines Fiscal Year 2024 category and funds).

  • Preliminary Calendar Year 2022 enplanement and all-cargo data became available in June 2023.
  • Final Calendar Year 2022 enplanement and all-cargo data became available in late August 2023.

Airports can view their individual CY2022 enplanement report on our Airports External Portal (AEP). Please select "ENPLANEMENT PUBLIC REPORT & FORM" on the AEP Site (See CY 2022 ATCO Preliminary and Final Review Information).

See Abbreviations for an explanation of the abbreviations used in the enplanements and cargo files column headings.
