Under the Chicago Convention, ICAO has been mandated with the gathering of aviation statistics from contracting States since 1947. This data is used to derive trend level indicators to support the sustainable development of civil aviation activities, concentrating on safety, efficiency and environmental protection.
IATA gathers aviation statistics directly from airlines, supporting various airline industry initiatives while monitoring the industry's performance in terms of traffic, employment, financial results, environmental protection and safety.
Statistical data are compiled by airlines, airports and civil aviation authorities applying international standards. Aviation statistics are widely used throughout the industry, ranging from monitoring global industry performance, to detailed network planning and competitor benchmarking.
