The Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) is withholding the scheduled release of estimated U.S. airlines’ traffic data for June and July because the estimates are statistical forecasts based on previous trends. The estimates do not account for the impact of the coronavirus. BTS additionally is withholding the seasonally-adjusted numbers due to the unprecedented decline in air traffic.

BTS reported 8.2 million domestic passengers and 0.2 million international passengers on U.S. airlines flights in May.
