The Survey of International Air Travelers is an on-going primary research program which gathers statistical data about air passenger travelers in U.S. - overseas and U.S. - Mexican markets. Survey data provides information on passenger trip planning, travel patterns, demographics and spending for two separate populations – non-U.S. residents traveling to the U.S. and U.S. residents traveling from the U.S.
The Survey has been conducted on a monthly basis continuously since January 1983. Survey data, which can be used to analyze specific visitor segments, is a source of information for planners, marketers and policy-makers. For details, including methodology and how this program is differentiated from other surveys, please see ‘Detailed Program Description’ below.
