San Francisco International Airport (SFO) - Traffic Statistics (Passengers): July 2005 to March 2011

Added By Ganglion

The passenger dataset contains data about passenger traffic into and out of the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) with monthly totals by airline, region, terminal and boarding area. Data begins in July 2005 and is sorted in reverse order, with the most current Year/Month at the top. It is SFO’s convention to count Thru/Transit passengers twice in total airport passenger counts, as if they had deplaned and then enplaned.


Traffic statistics for the San Francisco International Airport in csv format.

Air travel is highly seasonal in nature. Comparisons to analyze whether air traffic is increasing or declining should be done between the same period in different years, such as January 2010 to January 2009. Comparisons of different periods in the same year (such as October 2009 to November 2009) are meaningful only to analyze seasonal trends. Other factors such as holidays (e.g., spring holidays vary during the March-April period) and the number of days in the month (there is more activity in a 31 day month) may also need to be taken into account in any comparative analysis.
