The Questionnaire on Air Transport Statistics is aimed to collect aggregated annual data on the air transport sector for the following domains:
I. Infrastructure (covering commercial airports only) (status at 31/12)
II. Transport equipment (covering commercial aircrafts only) (status at 31/12)
III. Enterprises, economic performance and employment (status at 31/12)
IV. Accidents (annual data)
Data are collected and disseminated at country level or at airport level for major European airports.
The questionnaire is not supported by any legal acts and it is based on a gentlemen's agreement with the participating countries (Member States, Candidate Countries and EFTA countries). It is usually prefilled by Eurostat using its own sources as well as other ones (e.g. Airclaims or EASA) and sent to the countries for completion and validation. The completeness varies from country to country.
Please note that information concerning data collected in the frame of the Air Transport Statistics Regulation can be found in the metadata documentation provided for this domain (Air Transport Measurement).
