This has an impact on the airports coverage in the data to be provided by the countries. the categories of airports are updated on the basis of the volumes of passengers and freight recorded during year n-2. This Reference Manual contains three parts: • Part I: Methodology. the latest changes in the data collection are reflected. definitions and classifications • Part II: National methodologies • Part III: Procedures for data treatment and dissemination The objective of part I is to give all the necessary background information related to the implementation of the Regulation (EC) 437/2003 of the European Parliament and of the Council on statistical returns in respect of the carriage of passengers. It includes the description of the aviation data integration process as well as a description of the quality checks currently applied. The last section of this part is devoted to the dissemination means available for air transport data. where documents. In order to collect this information.eu/Members/irc/dsis/transport/library?l=/06_aviation&vm=detailed&sb=Title 7 . Finally.Introduction This document is the eighth version of the “Reference Manual on Air transport statistics”. Each year. This Manual also includes the updated list of reporting airports for the reference year 2011. Part III of the manual gives an overview on how the data are processed and disseminated by Eurostat. Compared to the seventh version of the Manual. publications and other relevant information on air transport statistics can be accessed: http://circa. Part II of the manual contains tables presenting the answers provided by the reporting countries by main methodological item of the questionnaire. 546/2005 and 158/2007. freight and mail by air as well as the subsequent implementing Commission Regulations 1358/2003. Part II of the manual provides information on the methodologies applied at national level for complying with the Regulation requirements. This part provides a description of the datasets structure. The categories of airports defined for extra-EU reporting countries are given for information. the definition of the statistical units and variables as well as the transmission of the datasets. with information on the “transfer passengers” values to be provided in dataset C1 on a voluntary basis. some useful definitions were added and methodological information is available on the latest developments having taken place in the field of data transmission and related tools. a questionnaire has been sent to the various reporting countries. it has to be mentioned that there is a forum managed by Eurostat on CIRCA.europa. Moreover.

Includes total commercial aircraft movements (see definition) as well as non commercial general aviation operations. continue their journey on the same aircraft on a flight having the same flight number as the flight on which they arrive. An example is a flight from Barcelona to Hamburg where the flight continues to Frankfurt before returning to Barcelona.4.5 The difference between on flight origin/destination and flight stage data The difference between on flight origin/destination and flight stage data can be illustrated by the following example: a flight is operated on a route New York-London-Paris 185 passengers travel from New York to London.

Paris would record New York-Paris and London-Paris. 17 . The following diagram gives an example of reporting transport in datasets A1 and B1. London would record New York-London and London-Paris. In terms of flight stage data there are two flight stages and the figures reported by New York and London airports are: New York-London 320=(185+135) passengers and by London and Paris airports are London-Paris 210=(135+75) passengers.passengers New York-Paris and 75 passengers London-Paris.

other airport coding systems were used by some countries. 20 . 2. notably IATA. IATA has 3-letter location identifiers. The internal airport dictionary uses a concatenation of the ICAO Aeronautical fixed service area codes (first digit). The countries are coded using a 2-letter codes corresponding to the concatenation of the ICAO Aeronautical fixed service area codes (first digit). then a temporary code is allocated by Eurostat for the airport. Indeed if no ICAO code is available for the airport. the code to be used to report data is “ZZZZ”.1 Country code In the files provided the reporting country code has to be completed. The codes are derived as a subset from those published in ICAO Document 7910. Therefore.3 Air transport operator code Initially it was planned to use the 3-letter air transport operator code as listed in ICAO Document 8585. Eurostat used to transcode these IATA code to ICAO code before importing data in the database. Before the adoption of Regulation (EC) 437/2003. Transcoding is required when a country reports data to another telecommunications centre code than the one specified by the partner country The range of valid airport codes is modified. This is why the dictionary is also updated when temporary codes are allocated by Eurostat for airports that do not have a valid ICAO Document 7910 code. and could hardly be obtained from the airport authorities. The updated list of the country codes to be used is provided in annex VIII. In order to support the reporting countries for transcoding IATA codes that may be provided by the data suppliers. The airport dictionary is used in all datasets for the reporting airport and also in A1 and B1 for the partner airport. The subset is determined by the data providers who nominate which codes to use when more than one telecommunication centre code exist for a given airport. the airports (reporting airports and partner airports) are coded using the 4-letter ICAO codes as listed in the ICAO Document 7910. the airport dictionary requires regular revisions for a small percentage of its codes. if the ICAO country identifier codes and/or the national telecommunication centre identifier codes are revised.2 Classifications 2. which include the codes for airports as used on passenger tickets. Normally the selected code corresponds to the civil operations communication centre code. 2. with the codes XX01 to XX79 being used per country (XX being the 2 digits code of the country concerned.2 Airport code In the tables to be provided in the frame of Regulation 437/2003. Not all world airports are in this list. ICAO country identifier codes (second digit). which is available on Circa. Eurostat is regularly maintaining a correspondence table between ICAO airport codes and IATA airports codes. ICAO country identifier codes (second digit) and national telecommunication centre identifier codes (third and fourth digit) and thus is a four digit alphanumeric code. ICAO doc 7910 is not a list of airports but of airport telecommunication centre codes. If the partner airport is unknown. Discussion with the data providers lead to the conclusion that this information is a real sensitive one.

The following codes have to be used by the data providers: Datasets A1 and B1 1EU Airlines licensed in the European Union 1NE Airlines not licensed in the European Union ZZZ Unknown airlines 888 "confidential" (to be used in tables A1 and B1 if an "information on the airline" is not allowed for confidentiality reasons) Dataset C1 1EU Airlines licensed in the European Union 1NE Airlines not licensed in the European Union ZZZ Unknown airlines "999" “all airlines” (to be used in table C1 only) Airlines partly licensed in EU shall be reported as "EU airlines". if in tables A1 and B1 the airline information is declared as confidential. However. the code “999” that covers all airlines may be used. the code "2"+Iso alpha 2 country code (country of licensing of the airline) could also be used as well as the ICAO airline code (document 8585). For airports which are under no obligation to report tables A1 and B1. The type of aircraft dictionary is updated by ICAO annually. in table C1 the code “999” will be provided. 2. for new types of aircraft. the airline information field is mandatory for airports. For instance SAS is reported under the code “1EU” In dataset C1.4 Aircraft code Information on aircraft type has only to be provided in the table A1 of Regulation 437/2003. which also have to report tables A1 and B1. the aircraft information has to be coded following the 4-letter of the ICAO aircraft type designators as listed in the ICAO Document 8643. The mention “optional” that appears in the description of tables A1 and B1 in Regulation 1358/2003 for the dimension airline information refers to the fact that on a voluntary basis. If the data provider does not know the type of aircraft. the code “ZZZZ” has to be used.Commission Regulation 1358/2003 gives the list of codes to be alternatively used for the provision of information related to the airline. 21 .

the list of fields to be provided. During 2012 all data files should be migrated to this standard so the eDAMIS validation engine can be used to pre validate data before it is transmitted to Eurostat."+max. Nevertheless empty fields (2 fields separator without data between) are also acceptable in this case.e. Examples of transmission format are provided in Annex IX. Two different types of fields are marked in the column associated to the relevant table: • "X": fields that have to be provided for a table. The sending of GESMES formatted files and the usage of Genedi will be phased out during 2012.g.:"n.. The format of each field is either numeric (n) or alphabetic (a) or alphanumeric (an) The size is either fixed ("format + number" . The following summary table gives for each table of the regulation ("A1".1 Transmission of results In the frame of Regulation 1358/2003.

Then.1. is available since December 2005. At the end. all the Gesmes messages are stored into an output folder and can be automatically sent to Eurostat using an electronic mail. GENEDI with its mapping module allow the users to make their file compliant with any Gesmes dataset structure for instance the aviation one. Its usage is simple: the tool can be either installed on the PC of the National Statistical Institute or the web application can be used (no installation is needed on the user’s PC in this last case).The GENEDI toolbox.

If present in the data file. Eurostat aims to increase the use of SDMX in the European Statistical System (ESS) and to exploit this standard to improve data collection." (comma).

Data providers are invited to consult the above mentioned sdmx related website in order to obtain further information on what this standard is about. 27 . For air transport statistics Eurostat introduced in 2011 the usage of SDMX and pre-validation of data to be transmitted. This is in line with the new Eurostat strategy on the production methods of EU statistics.that SDMX should be broadly used within the ESS.

there is a need for further information on some additional issues related to the aviation sector which are collected for other modes of transport: • Infrastructure • Equipment • Enterprises. It is compounded of a questionnaire aiming at collecting data at national level and of questionnaires collecting information for the main airports. economic performance and employment • Accidents For this purpose. As some of the requested data could be retrieved from existing sources. a questionnaire has been designed in order to collect information on the above items. An example of a questionnaire is available in Annex XI. Its objective is to collect a limited number of indicators and aggregated data. However.4 Questionnaire on aviation statistics The current Regulations on air transport statistics cover the traffic and transport measurement. 28 . Eurostat pre-fills the questionnaires before sending it to the countries.

Information on national methodologies are available for the EU Member States as well as the Candidate and EFTA countries providing data to Eurostat. questions on datasets C1 and information on data compilation. the answers received for three sections are particularly useful: questions on datasets A1 and B1. The questionnaire sent to the countries was divided into several sections: General information Specific questions on the Flight Stage (dataset A1) and On Flight Origin Destination (dataset B1) data as well as on other elements reported under datasets A1 and B1 Specific questions on some elements reported in the Airport dataset (C1) Information on data compilation. Eurostat sent a questionnaire to collect information on the methodologies applied at national level for the air transport data collection.

In the framework of a traffic of multiple flights. Other Airports: The smaller remaining airports collate scheduled information from the passenger ticket. a passenger may be taking a Ryanair flight from Dublin to Stansted and then an Easyjet flight from Stansted to Morocco). If a passenger has multiple tickets for multiple destinations – this information is not made known to the airport and it is not requested from the customer. or the true destination. It should also be noted that some people buy 2 independent tickets and it would be very difficult to track such passengers (e. The airport does not get such ticket information from the airlines. the system is dependent on the change of the flight number that is the basis of the collection. They have advised that it would be an impossible task to gather this information and would put a considerable amount of additional work on airport where resources are under pressure already.

Mirror quality checks were implemented since the first data collection (1993) for passengers transport and since the reference year 2001 for freight and mail and it should be noted that the number of deviations detected by these checks has been constantly decreasing. 2. with the particularity to be applied at airport-to-airport routes level and not any more at city-to-city level. Eurostat may do extra-quality checks if some countries have specific requests and if this could help the countries improving the quality of the data transmitted to Eurostat.e. 2. Only the routes for which both airports are reporting airports will be considered for this check. i. except if revised data are provided. This means that if the route airport A (from country X) to airport B (from country Y) is reported by country Y and not by country X. before indicating that the route is missing.3.3 Internal quality checks This section presents the quality checks that are run internally in Eurostat and sent to the participating countries only if important problems are detected.8 Missing routes check The aim is to check if data have been reported by both reporting airports for a given route. For instance if the route London/Stansted-Carcassone is reported by the United-Kingdom and not by France and if Carcassone airport is a reporting airport in France. the new version of the quality checks (described in this section) was implemented.2 Frequency of the checks The checks: • Summary results • Consistency over time – annual • Consistency between arrivals and departure figures • Mirror checking • Missing routes check • are normally run once a year. the arrivals at one airport have to be compared with the departures at the partner airport and vice-versa. 2. they have been performed by making the distinction on the direction. that for a specific airport-to-airport route. A1(Total Freight and mail on Board) >= B1(Total Freight and mail loaded/unloaded) 93 . Eurostat checks first if the airport A is a reporting airport of country X (with a volume above the legal threshold).Concerning the mirror quality checks on freight transport. 2. A1(Total Passengers on Board) >= B1(Total Passengers carried) for each reporting airport. At this step. However. a report is sent to the countries in order to inform them about the data comparison made thanks to the corresponding data of other participating countries (Mirror and missing routes checks). Since 2007.

Eurostat has to calculate aggregates at intraEU level (national. A1(Total Flights) <= C1 (Total commercial aircraft movements) 2.3. which corresponds to the sum of the arrivals (respectively departures) at each airport. In practice. 3. 3 Method of exclusion of the double counting when compiling aggregates for air transport statistics 3. regional and intra-EU aggregates). The problem of the double counting only appears for the calculation of the total “arrivals plus departures” volumes but not for the total arrivals (respectively total departures).2 Principle of the exclusion of the double counting Ideally. B1 (Total passengers carried) "is similar" to C1 (Total passengers carried) for each reporting airport.2. It requires solving the problem of double counting for the airport routes for which both airports report the volume. This aims to prevent as much as possible errors due to miscodifications by the partner airports. the total transport is calculated as follows: it includes all the departures figures reported plus "a part of" arrivals declarations. 94 . arrival/departure and scheduled/non scheduled: this means that the figures are aggregated on these dimensions before excluding the double counting. as there is no double counting. "a part of" including those arrivals declarations for which the corresponding departures declarations of the partner airport are missing. only the departure declarations of the concerned airports are taken into account.3 Application of the principle In order to highlight the principle of exclusion of the double counting. since these constitute the routes where the problem of double counting occurs.1 Introduction to the “double counting” concept In the frame of the data dissemination process. to calculate aggregates at intra-EU level (national. It consists in the sum of all the declarations of the Member States to/from all the partner countries out of the European Union. one should only take departures declarations into account. Eurostat has produced a correspondence table between airports and cities allowing the aggregation of the figures at city-to-city route level before excluding the double counting. year. regional and intra-EU aggregates). B1 (Total Freight and mail loaded/unloaded) "is similar to" C1 (Total Freight and mail loaded/unloaded) The analysis of the results of the quality checks on 2010 data is available in annex XII.3. When calculating the total volumes of passengers and freight in such cases. Concerning the total international extra-EU transport.2 - Comparison between the flight stage declarations (A1) and the airport declarations (C1) for each reporting airport. The double counting is excluded at city-to-city route level by taking into consideration the dimensions period. the necessary calculation will be applied to the following case. the calculation is easier.3 - Comparison between the on flight origin/destination declarations (B1) and the airport declarations (C1) for each reporting airport. 3.

this represents a difference of 89 passengers compared to the total transport calculated without excluding double counting. In this case. 96 .Period Year 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 2010 2010 2010 2010 2010 2010 2010 Reporting City CITY A CITY A CITY B CITY A CITY A CITY A CITY B Partner City CITY B CITY B CITY A CITY C CITY B CITY B CITY A 1 2 1 1 1 2 1 Arrival/ Departure 1 1 1 2 2 2 2 Scheduled/ Non Scheduled Number of passengers 50 80 70 100 30 20 19 Mirror declarations available 70 80 19 20 The total transport excluding double counting is thus calculated by adding the remaining records: 50 + 80 + 100 + 30 + 20 = 280 passengers.

it does not correspond to the sum of the total volume of transport reported by each domestic airport because in this case the volume of transport between two domestic airports would have been counted twice. 4.data aggregated at standard regional levels (NUTS) (avia_rg) Each sub-domain is divided into several collections of tables. They present overall results and trends for the freshest data available.1. The detail of the tables disseminated in Eurobase is given in annex XIII.2 Procedures of calculations and aggregations used in the dissemination process In the frame of the data dissemination process in Eurobase. because these constitute the routes where the problem of double counting occurs. These calculations require the problem of double counting to be solved. which correspond to the sum of the arrivals (respectively departures) at each domestic airport.4 Dissemination 4. Data in Focus The Data in Focus are publications describing a specific theme of the aviation statistics.1 Description of the various supports The dissemination of air transport statistics is done through different supports.1. It is composed of four sub-domains (based on data collected in the frame of the Questionnaire): • Air transport infrastructure (avia_if) • Air transport equipment (avia_eq) • Air transport . taking as example the calculation of the domestic transport for one country. 4. SiFs and DiFs.2 Statistics in Focus The Statistics in Focus are 8 or 12 pages publication describing a specific theme of the aviation statistics. The problem of the double counting only appears for the calculation of the total transport but not for the total arrivals (respectively total departures). Eurostat has to calculate aggregates like the total volume of domestic transport for each country or the total volume of intra–EU25 transport. They present the main overall results and trends. The Air transport domain contains detailed data and time series since 1993. 97 .1 Eurobase Eurobase is open freely to the public since October 2004. and they comprise tables and graphs as well as the related methodological notes. as well as analysis of the published data and methodological notes.e. The Statistics in Focus are freely disseminated and are available on Eurostat web site. 1.1. i. For each aggregate it is necessary to start at the airport level in order to identify the mirror declarations.Enterprises economic performances and employment (avia_ec) • Air transport – Accidents (avia_ac) As well as five sub-domains (based on the data collected in the frame of the Regulation) devoted to: • Air transport measurement – passengers (avia_pa) • Air Transport measurement – Freight and mail (avia_go) • Air transport measurement . The Data in Focus are freely disseminated and are available on Eurostat web site. 4. Indeed.traffic data by airports.1. aircrafts and airlines (avia_tf) • Air transport . the airport routes for which the volume of transport is reported by both airports. and they comprise tables and graphs.

as departures . In order to estimate regional air transport of passengers/goods in the tables from the Regional transport statistics section. "a part of" including those national arrivals declarations for which the corresponding departures declarations of the partner airport are missing. Ideally.and the destination airport . This means that the figures are aggregated on these dimensions before excluding double counting.When calculating the total volume of transport in such cases only the departure declarations of the concerned airports are aggregated. A recent analysis has allowed to conclude that a different level of exclusion of the double counting would be more convenient for regional statistics due to methodological reasons: the double counting is now excluded at airport-to-airport route level by taking only into consideration the period. total transport includes all the departures figures reported plus "a part of" arrivals declarations.provided that dissemination is not limited by confidentiality. New aggregation methodology for regional air transport statistics European aggregates are compiled by Eurostat for EU27. some aggregated figures common to both domains ("Air transport" and "Regional transport") may thus be slightly different due to methodological divergences in the data compilation 98 . Until recently. As a different level of aggregation is used in the "Air transport" domain of the Reference Database. the exclusion of the double counting for regional air transport statistics was performed at the same level of aggregation than for the "Air transport" domain. In practice.as arrivals) has to be addressed. the issue of "double counting" (transport of the same passenger is declared by both the departing airport . EU25 and EU15 as soon as all data become available . to calculate these aggregates for air transport. one should only take departures declarations into account.

Generally speaking. 2. The main changes concern France. having reported 2010 data for 64 (respectively 63) airports under the threshold mentioned in the terms of the Regulation in datasets A1 and C1 (respectively dataset B1). Regarding the Candidate Countries. The figures presented are broken down according to the size of the airports in terms of passenger units. all countries provided the three datasets for 2010. all the participating countries provided data according to the format requested by the Regulation. The small evolutions observed between 2009 and 2010 are due to several reasons.2 Format of the data in the file provided For the reference year 2010 (as for 2009). few formatting work had to be performed before integrating the data.3 Number of declaring airports The number of reporting airports by country did not vary much between 2009 and 2010 for each of the three datasets. Among the EU27 Member States. airports can have changed category between the reference years 2009 and 2010: either changing to the higher category if the traffic has increased. Indeed.

Indeed.3. aircraft type…) are unknown. • Unknown transport A reporting country informed Eurostat that some airlines do not report detailed cargo transport: only the total quantity of freight is available. Some missing routes observed in the quality checks could surely be found within such records. This explanation can be the reason of some of the discrepancies pointed out in the quality checks. • Different methodology applied by partner airports A reporting country reported that some methodological issues are responsible for the deviations observed at national and international transport level. In this case.2. • Redirected flights Redirected flights could be an explanation of some of the discrepancies observed in the mirror declarations. • Transit passengers Several countries indicated that some discrepancies observed in the mirror and missing routes checks are due to differences in the methodology of reporting transit passengers for flights with an intermediate stop and multi stop flights.Aviation statistics 2010 data collection Data Quality 5.2 Problems in information system Some discrepancies observed in the mirror checks may actually be due to problems linked to the transition between information systems used for the data compilation (such as new system for air traffic billing and reporting). in such cases. As the airline also serves other airlines.3 Methodological problems Several other problems have been pointed out by the participating countries and are linked to methodological issues. A reporting country indicated that software problems may also explain some of the deviations observed for multi-stage flights. with some airports only providing “origin/destination” concept.3. it happens that the airline code is also ”unknown” in some of the records provided. this transport is reported as air transport and it is difficult when compiling the data to distinguish the transport realised by lorry and the transport actually performed by aircraft. These problems are listed hereafter. even in dataset A1 (where data should be reported according to the “flight Stage” concept). In the datasets provided. • Registration of transport by lorries Another kind of methodological issue concerns the freight carried by a plane which is forwarded by lorries to a different destination. 5. the destination airport (as registered at the departing airport) changes while travelling. This can cause potentially important differences when comparing mirror figures. one can find records with a relatively high quantity of freight where most of the dimensions (partner airport. 251 Page 16 .2.

This methodology would thus avoid the problem mentioned in the previous section. This means that when country XX has sent data for a whole year. II. Annual updates The tables in the collections avia_par and avia_gor will be updated on annual basis. the list of “main declaring airports” and “main partner airports” defined at annual level should be kept at quarterly and monthly level for each year. The new selection of “main 263 . the most recent reference datasets have to be used. the tables avia_par _XX and avia_gor _XX could be updated. For a specific year. a unique threshold would present two inconveniences: • the biggest airports of the smallest countries would be under the threshold and thus no data would be available in the tables for this country • the number of airports selected for the participating countries where the transport is among the highest would be too important B. Furthermore. However. the main partners of the “main declaring airports” have to be selected in the appropriate manner. quarterly and annual data. Main declaring airports The list of airports to be considered as “main declaring airports” for the passenger tables (respectively the freight tables) are all airports reporting data in the Flight Stage dataset and/or in the On Flight Origin/Destination dataset for passenger transport (respectively freight transport). due to the important difference of volumes reported by the main airports of the various reporting countries. The selected airport pairs will then be displayed in the tables of each country. To determine the thresholds for the airports routes to be included in the Eurostat dissemination database. When the country has provided data for the complete year. the annual updates can be run for the monthly. I. Solution The following methodology takes into account the size class of the “main declaring airports” in order to determinate appropriate thresholds. Problem with thresholds Eurostat proposed to apply a unique threshold for all routes declared by the main airports. The first step is the filling of the tables until 2003 using the annual thresholds defined in the method described in this document following the airport size (based on “passenger units”).For the tables of the collections avia_par and avia_gor. Some routes having only seasonal traffic may not appear.

the other cells will remain empty.Airport A' Airport B .Airport K' C. 1.Airport J' Airport K . the data should be included in the collection for each year only for the “main declaring airports”-to-“main partner airports” routes defined for the year concerned. thresholds for the airports routes should be defined. Once this selection has been made.Airport G' Airport H .Airport F' Airport G . These thresholds should allow having the most appropriate selection for each of the various countries. the tables will contain values only for the “main declaring airports”to-“main partner airports” routes of this year. Method to define thresholds In order to select the routes to display in the tables avia_par and avia_gor of the Eurostat dissemination domain.Airport H' Airport I . The availability of the information for a selection of routes could then be as follow: 1993 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X Airport A . The thresholds are defined separately for passenger and “freight and mail” transport because the importance of a route may be quite different in terms of passenger transport and in terms of “freight and mail” transport.Airport C' Airport D .Airport B' Airport C . The list of “main declaring airports” and “main partner airports” defined at annual level will also be used to display the monthly and quarterly data of the same reference year.Airport I' Airport J .Airport E' Airport F . A list of “main declaring airports”-to-“main partner airports” routes is defined for each year separately. For a specific reference year.Airport D' Airport E .declaring airports”-to-“main partner airports” routes is made using these latest annual data according to the thresholds defined. Passengers Data taken into account for the determination of the thresholds 264 .

based on the 2003 data of the aviation database. associating to each reporting airport its total passenger transport in 2003. all the partner airports have been taken into account. a table with the total passenger transport has been made for the “main reporting airport”-to-partner airports routes. 265 . A summary table has been created. These classes will allow calculating different thresholds depending on the size of the reporting airport. 50% of the routes have a volume of passengers inferior to Quartile 2 and 75% of the routes have a volume of passengers inferior to Quartile 3.

Direct transit passengers Passengers who. mentions three datasets: the Flight Stage dataset. total freight and mail loaded or unloaded. All revenue and non revenue passengers on board an aircraft during a flight stage. The values provided concern passengers carried and freight and mail loaded or unloaded. Flight stage The operation of an aircraft from take-off to its next landing. 3. scheduled/non-scheduled. after a short stop. Passengers on board All passengers on board of the aircraft upon landing at the reporting airport or at taking off from the reporting airport. This is linked to the definition of passengers (or freight and mail) on board. passenger service/all-freight and mail service.

freight or mail where the airport of embarkation is not known. All revenue and non-revenue passengers whose journey begins or terminates at the reporting airport and transfer passengers joining or leaving the flight at the reporting airport. For passengers. On flight origin and destination Passengers carried All passengers on a particular flight (with one flight number) counted once only and not repeatedly on each individual stage of that flight. Freight and mail loaded or unloaded All freight and mail loaded onto or unloaded from an aircraft. the aircraft origin should be deemed to be the point of embarkation. Category "0": Airports with less than 15 000 passenger units per year are considered as having only "occasional commercial traffic" without obligation to report. This is linked to the definition of passengers carried and freight and mail loaded or unloaded. Paris would record New York-Paris and London-Paris. figures obtained by applying the Flight Stage concept and the On Flight Origin/Destination concept are not comparable because of direct transit passengers. Traffic on a commercial air service identified by a unique flight number subdivided by airport pairs in accordance with point of embarkation and point of disembarkation on that flight. All freight and mail on board an aircraft during a flight stage. the aircraft destination should be deemed to be the point of disembarkation. London would record New York-London and London-Paris. In terms of flight stage data there are two flight stages and the figures reported by New York and London airports are: New York-London 320=(185+135) passengers and by London and Paris airports are London-Paris 210=(135+75) passengers.Freight and mail on board All freight and mail on board of the aircraft upon landing at the reporting airport or at taking off from the reporting airport.6 Statistical population As mentioned in the Regulation. Includes direct transit freight and mail (counted at arrivals and departures). if the airport of disembarkation is not known. Includes express services and diplomatic bags. Conceptually speaking. Excludes direct transit passengers. 3. Excludes passenger baggage. Includes express services and diplomatic bags. some 273 .5 Statistical unit The data used in the domain are collected by the different data providers at the airport level. The following example shows the difference between the “On flight origin and destination” data and the “Flight Stage” data: a flight is operated on a route New York-London-Paris 185 passengers travel from New York to London. 3. 135 passengers New York-Paris and 75 passengers London-Paris. 135 from New York to Paris and 75 from London to Paris. four categories of Community airports are defined. Excludes passenger baggage. which are counted for "flight stages" but not for "on flight origin/destination". the reported data differing following the airport's category. New York would record the figures for New York-London and New York-Paris. similarly. Thus in terms of on flight origin/destination data the figures recorded are 185 passengers New York-London. However. Excludes direct transit freight and mail.

clarity and comparability are particularly indicated as good qualities of these data.geographical Data comparability across countries is very high.1 Timeliness According to the existing legal basis. There is an obligation of data provision for the Member States and. The comparison with other relevant international sources shows a high level comparaibility. quantify the importance of the transport flows of passengers and freight at intraEU and extra-EU and assess the competition in the air transport market. European air transport statistics are a valuable resource to a wide range of users.13.

Comparability 16.2 Punctuality A majority of countries deliver the data earlier than the t+6 months. depending on data deliveries from the reporting countries. Accuracy and reliability 14. 16. In practice final annual data are disseminated about nine months after the reference period. at least since 2003 when the framework legal act came into force. 15. This is ensured by the implementation of a 277 . there are very few gaps in the data provision.1 User needs Users mainly request these data to properly monitor the development of air transport in the EU and other European countries. Monthly and quarterly provisional data are disseminated earlier. as a consequence.

18. no major change in the methodology used to collect and process the data have taken place in this domain.internal The quality checks include mirror statistics.common methodology. and airport levels.and extra-EU figures at community.1 Source data 278 . The present methodological approach has been applied for a number of years now and it is well understood and applied at airport and country level.2 Comparability . time series checks and inter-datasets checks. Cost and burden An exercise to measure cost-benefit of this obligatory data collection was made in 2007. These quality checks detect data that could possibly be in error. 17. However. country. Therefore. the methodology applied to compare both sides did not allow to provide consistent and valuable conclusions. In addition.1 Data revision . 19. particularly because of the difficulty of comparing costs (measured in a currency) and benefits (measured with a scoring system). the comparison of national aggregated data has to be taken with care because the comparison is affected by the fact that more airports report data from one year to another. Coherence 17. Anyhow.2 Coherence . 20. Statistical processing 20. Only in the case of countries where there has been an increase in the number of reporting airports over time. All these information allows the implementation of different quality checks to ensure the coherence of the data. 17.

quarterly or annually. • Mirror checking These quality checks are performed in order to compare the consistency between two partner declarations. They are run both for national and international declarations at city level. 20.the record format is correct . which can be for instance the Statistical Office or the Civil Aviation Authorities. Automatic validation The checks include that: .there are no duplicate records within the dataset . Dataset C1 can be delivered monthly. 20.4 Data validation Data validation takes place at several levels of the data processing. This means that the reported data have been first aggregated at city levels and then compared.3 Data collection Data should be transmitted to Eurostat via e-mail using the eDAMIS engine tool following the transmission format foreseen in Regulation (EC) 1358/2003 (Commission Regulation). 279 . and the second step is the quality checks when data has been integrated. It is run for international and national transport separately. Original data sources are normally the airports organisations or enterprises. 20.Data are collected and/or compiled by the competent national authorities. • Missing routes This check allows detecting the routes between two declaring airports where only one of them has declared the information.2 Frequency of data collection Data are collected on amonthly basis as regards datasets A1 and B1. This reduced the problem of wrong airport code attribution. The first step is the automatic validation during the integration.each record contains valid and correct codes Quality checks Three types of quality checks are made on the datasets received for national and international transport. This check is applied separately for international and national transport. • Consistency over time This check is made in order to detect unlikely increase or decrease of transport at one of the reporting airports.

20. All corrections of errors should be documented. Data for passengers on board from the years 2003 until 2007 are underestimated because they do not include direct transit passengers. regional and intra-EU aggregates). For each aggregate it is necessary to start at the airport level in order to identify the mirror declarations. in 2001 the new Athens airport was opened with the code LGAV. data are 280 . When calculating the total volume in such cases. It consists in the sum of all the declarations of the Member States to/from all the partner countries out of the European Union. i. Czech Republic: No data at airport to airport level (routes) is disseminated. Liege. It requires sometimes solving the problem of double counting. From 2001. Eurostat has to calculate aggregates at intraEU level (national. since these constitute the routes where the problem of double counting occurs.1 Notes Belgium: From 1993 to 2003 the data provided by Belgium only refer to Brussels airport.Managing Quality check errors Possible data errors that are detected at this stage are communicated to the countries for checking purposes. since 2002 only the code LGAV is used.e. figures for Paris concern the airport system. The problem of the double counting only appears for the calculation of the total passengers but not for the total arrivals (respectively total departures). Greece: Due to the lack of data for 2001 and 2002. before further quality checking. Kerry and Galway. as there is no double counting.6 Adjustment Not applicable 21. there is a break on the time series. Denmark: Due to the lack of data for 2000. Freight and mail data are not available for Kobenhavn/Kastrup airport from 2004 to 2007. France: Up to 2000. 20. From 2005 onwards more airports are providing data. the calculation is easier. Shannon and Cork airports. 2004 and 2005 data refer to Brussels and Charleroi. Ireland: In 1993 data provided by Ireland only refer to Dublin airport. From 2006 onwards. Data that are resupplied are then re-validated. Concerning the total international extra-EU transport. From 1994 until 2004 data refer to Dublin. there is a break on the time series. Until 2000 the airport code for Athens airport is LGAT.5 Data compilation In the frame of the data dissemination process. Comment 21. the airport routes for which both airports report the volume. notably Connaught. Oostende and Antwerpen are also sending data. Sometimes it might be prudent to return the data to the countries for correction and re-supply. which corresponds to the sum of the arrivals (respectively departures) at each domestic airport. only the departure declarations of the concerned airports have been taken into account.

Croatia: Until 2007 Croatia has provided only aggregated airport declarations. airport only. From 2005 onwards. data for Kaunas and Palanga airports have been added. From 2008 flight stage and on flight origin destination data are provided.Air transport infrastructure 21. 21.available for Paris/Charles de Gaulle and Paris/Orly separately. no data at airport to airport level (routes) is disseminated. Italy: Due to missing airports in the declarations from Italy from 1999 to 2002. Iceland: Only Keflavik airport delivers all datasets. Since 2005 Sweden provide freight and mail data only from 2008. Lithuanian data refer to Vilnius Intl. Until that year.2 Related Metadata avia_if_esms . Lithuania: In 2003 and 2004. Poland: Because of derogations granted to other airports Polish 2004 and 2005 data refer to Warszawa/Okecie airport only.3 Annex Reference Manual on Air Transport Statistics Data availability Glossary on air transport statistics 281 . Data for freight transport in the Paris airports (Charles de Gaulle and Orly) are sistematically underestimaed due to incomplete data provision. From 2006 onwards Poland reports data for 10 airports. Sweden: From 1993 to 1994 the number of reporting Swedish airports increased from 3 to 15. Luxembourg: Until 2007 Luxembourg hs only provided Flight Stage data. Turkey: Only aggregated airport declarations are provided. there is a break on the time series for the aggregated figures for this country. The other airports in Iceland only provide aggregated airport declarations. Portugal: Until 2004 the airport code for Santa Maria airport is LPAZ and since 2005 it has been replaced by the code LPPO Slovakia: Slovakia provided data at country level until 2005 included.
