The California Aviation System: Current Status and Recent Trends
This report presents statistical information on passenger and cargo traffic, aircraft activity and delays at California airports. Five main topics are considered: passenger enplanements, air travel origin and destination (O-D) patterns, air cargo activity, aircraft operations, and airport delays. In most cases, we present data for the state as a whole, major regions within the state, and major airports within each region. Most of the data are compiled on an annual basis for the years from 1980 to 2000. The report concludes with a discussion of the changes in activity in the California aviation system since the events of September 11, 2001, and some of the implications of these changes.
