* Note: U.S. travel to Mexico is still preliminary, and subject to revision. The revisions may include past estimates for U.S. travel to Mexico as well.

** Note: Overseas excludes Canada and Mexico (For those two countries visitation estimates include all modes, for all other countries estimates are available only for air travel to that country). The Canadian and Mexican travel estimates were obtained from their respective governments

The Visitation estimates are made based upon the airlines who voluntarily participate in this program. If a major carrier does not
participate and we do not have access to other carriers who generate passenger travel to that destination, our estimates will be affected.
