Air Transport Association comments on BTS Extended-Delay Data


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Air Transport Association Of America (ATA)
: 01 April, 2009  (Company News)
The Air Transport Association of America (ATA), the industry trade organization for the leading U.S. airlines, today commented on the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) report 'Taxi-Out and Other Tarmac Times.'
'ATA and the airlines were strong supporters of the improved data collection that went into today's BTS report 'Taxi-Out and Other Tarmac Times.'

It comes as no surprise that with more detailed data the number of reported delays is up slightly with the addition of roughly 26 delays per month over the four months reported. While this number is still remarkably low (an increase of one out of every 20,347 flights or 0.0049 percent), what it tells us is that we are on the right track in calling for the aggressive roll-out of a modernized air traffic management system that will help drive these delay numbers even lower.'
