Montreal, 4 July 2016– Airports Council International (ACI) has announced the release of the 2015 ACI World Airport Traffic Dataset (Excel version). Regarded as a key measure of air transport demand, this year’s release covers airport traffic statistics for the 2014 and 2015 calendar year for over 2,300 airports in 160 countries by three thematic areas: passengers, cargo (freight and mail) and aircraft movements. Data is presented by airport, city, country and region, and individual airport entries feature international and domestic breakdowns.
