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


Passenger (enplanement) and cargo data is extracted from the Air Carrier Activity Information System (ACAIS), a database that contains revenue passenger boarding and all-cargo data. The database supports the FAA's Airport Improvement Program (AIP) apportionment formula calculations. 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 AIP entitlements for the next full fiscal year (i.e., calendar year 2020 data determines Fiscal Year 2022 entitlement funds).

  • Preliminary Calendar Year 2020 enplanement and all-cargo data became available in early June 2021.
  • Final Calendar Year 2020 enplanement and all-cargo data became available in August 2021.

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