US DOT O&D data is passenger revenue sourced from a 10% sample of all US airline ticket coupons and excludes ancillaries.
The U.S. DOT releases O&D data with gross fare information only. The Diio product calculates net fares for each route by backing out all applicable airfare taxes and fees, both Domestic and International, from the gross fares. For each particular route, these taxes and fees include one or more of the following components:
- U.S. Federal Excise Tax
- U.S. Federal Segment Fee
- U.S. Security Fee
- U.S. Passenger Facility Charge (PFC)
- U.S. Alaska/Hawaii Domestic Transportation Tax
- U.S. International Departure Tax
- U.S. International Arrival Tax
- U.S. Immigration Fee
- U.S. Customs Fee
- U.S. Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service Agriculture Inspection Fee
- International Airport Passenger Service Facility Charges
- International Value Added Tax
- International Security Fee
- International Noise Isolation Fee
- International Government Tax
- International Tourism Tax
- International Miscellaneous Fees
- U.S. Territories such as Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Samoa, Guam, etc. are treated as International locations for net fare calculations.
- Taxable transportation begins in the U.S. or in the portion of Canada or Mexico that is not more than 225 miles from the nearest point in the Continental U.S. and ends in the U.S. or in the 225-mile zone.
- Local currencies are converted into U.S. Dollars using the average conversion rate for each applicable quarter.
- Diio has applied specific International country charges for over 40 countries which comprise over 95% of the total passengers included in the O&D data. For all other countries, regional averages for Latin America, the Caribbean, South America, Europe, and Asia were used.
