BTS Issues Directive for 2014 Airline On-Time Reporting. The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) today issued its annual directive detailing the requirements for the reporting of airline on-time data for 2014. In 2014, BTS will receive reports from 14 airlines. Endeavor Airlines will not be required to report in 2014 after reporting in 2013, and Mesa Airlines will no longer report voluntarily. Airlines with revenue of more than 1 percent of the total scheduled-service domestic passenger revenue for all airlines for the 12 months ending June 30, 2013, are required to report.
The directive also includes a list of 29 airports with 1 percent or more of the nation's total domestic scheduled-service passenger enplanements for the 12-months ending June 30, 2013, for which monthly on-time reports are required. The list is unchanged from 2013. Although all reporting airlines voluntarily report on all domestic airports they serve, these 29 airports are listed in the detailed airport tables of the Department’s Air Travel Consumer Report and on BTS’ major airport on-time rankings. For the complete list of carriers required to report data in 2014 and the airports for which reports are required, see Technical Directives - On-Time Reporting.
