Methodological note

The movement of passengers at airports measures passengers transported on scheduled and unscheduled flights, and other types of traffic provided by national or foreign companies.

The transported passenger is the person who takes a specific flight. They are counted just once, regardless of whether they are catching one flight or they are at one of the stopovers of a flight.

Scheduled traffic is understood as a commercial air service with a fixed schedule which occurs regardless of the number of passengers who are flying on the plane.

Unscheduled traffic(or charter) is understood as a commercial air service carried out by means of remuneration where the operation is not reported as a regular service.

Other types of trafficinclude commercial traffic, which cannot be considered as regular or charter, and non-commercial traffic (include the operations related to the movement of military aircraft, of the State, private, and aerial work).

The Catalonia data includes the movement of passengers in the airports of Josep Tarradellas Barcelona-El Prat, Girona-Costa Brava, Reus and Lleida-Alguaire. Since the month of February 2015, the data on the Lleida-Alguaire airport has been provided by Airports of Catalonia.

From January 2016, data of passengers, aircrafts and goods are actualized from the Estadísticas de tráfico aéreo published by AENA. This source change involves the review of all published periods up to this date. This review allows for the addition of new information linked with the movements of other types of traffic.
