Agency Information Collection Activities; Proposals, Submissions, and Approvals
OMB Approval No. 21390001
Title: Passenger OriginDestination Survey Report.
Form No.: None.
Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
Respondents: Large certificated air carriers that provide scheduled passenger service.
Number of Respondents: 35.
Total Number of Annual Responses: 140.
Estimated Time per Response: 240 hours.
Total Annual Burden: 33,600.
Needs and Uses: Survey data are used in monitoring the airline industry, negotiating international agreements, reviewing requests for the grant of antitrust immunity for air carrier alliance agreements, selecting new international routes, selecting U.S. carriers to operate limited entry foreign routes, and modeling the spread of contagious diseases. The Passenger OriginDestination Survey Report is the only aviation data collection by DOT where the air carriers report the true origins and destinations of passengers' flight itineraries. The Department does have another aviation data collection (T100) which (1) gives passenger totals for citypairs served on a nonstop basis and (2) market totals for passengers traveling on a single flight number. If the passenger travels on multiple flight numbers, a new market is recorded for each change in flight number.
The Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency
Act of 2002 (44 U.S.C. 3501 note), requires a statistical agency to
clearly identify information it collects for nonstatistical purposes.
BTS hereby notifies the respondents and the public that BTS uses the information it collects under
this OMB approval for nonstatistical purposes including, but not limited to, publication of both Respondent's identity and its data, submission of the information to agencies outside BTS for review, analysis and possible use in regulatory and other administrative matters.
