Global Flight Data
We systematically collated the number of passengers travelling by air in 2010-2018 for 90 countries or territories, obtained from national statistic offices, ministries of transportation, reports published by airports, and other open data sources. We also ranked the monthly volume of air travellers for understanding the seasonal travel patterns for each year and county. The dataset is available to download in csv format.
