The data used for this report is typically submitted to the Department about five or six months behind the quarter it represents, and in some cases there will be problems with the data submitted by a carrier resulting in a longer delay of the release of that quarters report.
No report will be released until the data of all the reporting carriers submitted is deemed accurate and complete.
Beginning with the Fourth Quarter 2015 report, data will be published in MS Excel format only. If text files are required, please contact the Office of Aviation Analysis.
The most current issue is for the Fourth Quarter 2017. The First Quarter 2018 report should be made available sometime in July 2018.
