TI has updated the monthly section OF OUR WEBSITE TO INCLUDE the preliminary January-July 1998 U.S. citizen international outbound air traffic summary data from the I-92 data base. Please visit this area monthly to keep up-to-date on U.S. citizen outbound travel. You can find this information at: http://tinet.ita.doc.gov

Once you enter the TI website, one way to view the new monthly summary is to click on the "Monthly Tourism Statistics" icon. Then, scroll down and click on the "U.S. Outbound Travel by World Regions." You will see that 1996, 1997, and 1998 summary data are posted. To see this year's monthly data, click on the 1998. If you visit this site monthly, you will see the next months' data as we build the page, month by month, to display all of the 1998 data.

The website release is ONLY a summary of the 1998 monthly data issued in TI's "U.S. International Air Travel Statistics Report." This in-depth statistical report is sold to subscribers. In addition to providing U.S. citizen outbound data by world region, the full report provides numerous subsets of air traffic figures for U.S. international arrival and departure flights.

The information collected is obtained from the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) I-92 form. This form must be completed by all U.S. and foreign flag carriers who have United States international arrival or departure flights (excluding Canada). The I-92 provides air traffic data on the number of passengers by:

1. country,
2. airport,
3. scheduled flights,
4. charter flights,
5. U.S. flag airlines,
6. foreign flag carriers,
7. citizens and
8. non-citizens.

In fact, this is the ONLY U.S. government data base to provide estimates on U.S. citizen departures on an ongoing basis. There are arrivals and departures data on almost 120 countries, up to 90 U.S. airports, and over 280 non-U.S. airports.

Subscribers to this report include airlines, airport authorities, consultants, national tourism offices, aircraft manufacturers, universities, and convention & visitor bureaus. If you want to understand the international air traffic to and from the United States, this report is for you.

Once you enter the TI website, click on the "Market Analysis" icon. Then, scroll down and click on the "U.S. International Air Traveler Statistics (I-92) Program."

Check the "Current Publication" area for the type of subscription that meets your needs. You can order the 1998 reports on-line. The 1998 annual report is $300. It should be released in June or July of 1999. Other subscription options are available.
