Where to find US Airport statistics 1968-1985?

Wed Jul 31, 2019 3:58 pm

Hello all,

For my website http://www.AirportHistory.org I have collected world airport statistics from 2018 going back all the way to 1960 and even going back as far as the 1920s for many airports. However, I still have a hole for some US airports in the period 1968-1985. There are some reports out there on the web containing info about enplanements but I need both enplanements and deplanements. I wrote Emails to the FAA, USDOT and the National Archives but no luck there. Before I reach out to individual airports, I wonder if anyone here can point me to an online source.

Thanks in advance for your help!

For the top 30 busiest US airports I have data for the period 1961-1667. I'm currently missing 1968 and 1969 for all but a few. Then for most I have data from 1970 onwards with notable exceptions, such as:

-ATL: missing 1968-1985
-DTW: missing 1968-1979
-IAD: Missing 1968-1975

Etc.

Hathitrust.org has a bunch of Airport Activity Statistics, which lists enplanements at every US airport -- but only for "certificated carriers", which I assume doesn't include any foreign airlines, and didn't include PSA and Air California and Southwest until 1979.

Have you used Hathitrust? If you want details, speak up. Here's a 1975 sample

Make sure to check the date on the issues you're looking at -- some are for the year ending 30 June.

I have 1962-1969 on paper if you want anything for those years.
