Hello airline managers!

During the past few months we have been updating our airports with city names, states/provinces and - most importantly - up-to-date passenger numbers. Currently we have more than 1000 airports with data from 2016 and around 200 new airports resulting from new and updated statistics data. As great as it is, we at Airline Mogul still have a long way to go. Some countries publish frequent air transport statistics which is very useful, but other countries have no database or no information that is easily available. This kind of research takes a lot of time to perform, especially if you have to search around for data from about 200 countries.
This is where your help counts: Maybe you have information about recent airport passenger statistics, maybe you know somebody who works in the industry. Whichever the case, if you have official statistics from any of the countries mentioned below, we would be more than happy to have a look. You can send the data to our staff email :staff: and we will make sure to add the data to the game as soon as possible
To show our appreciation for your help, any data that leads to updated passenger data will be rewarded with up to 100 tokens!

What data is useful to us? Good question! We prefer data from 2016 and the same source (e.g. national statistics bureau) for the whole country. Of course, individual airport statistics are okay too, as is data from earlier years as long as it is the most recent. We can't use statistics from Wikipedia unless they have a source - and then we would prefer a link to the source.
When will I see the new passenger numbers? Any new world created after the new passenger numbers have been added to the game will contain the new passenger numbers.
When will I see the new airport I added? New airports will appear right after we add them to the game. You might have already noticed the new airports added recently.

This is a complete list of countries we do not have up to date data for; the list is split in two, the first list is countries we have no or very old data for, the second list is countries we have recent data or most data for. It can say something like 'Only Minsk' meaning we have data for Minsk but not other airports, or it can say '2013' which means the data we have is from 2013. Countries we have received data for will be crossed out from the list.

I wish to help. How do I find data, and what am I supposed to look for?

I keep searching Google for 'airport statistics of New Zealand', but it kept turning up "International Visitor Arrivals", (which is an official account of visitor and tourist data from all over the world to New Zealand). I can't seem to find individual airport passenger amounts and all that.

I had difficulty finding data for New Zealand, in the end I looked it up for each airport individually. Google is helpful, but when a country doesn't have general statistics, you're in a tight spot. Maybe if you know somebody in the industry or something like that, they might be able to pull the data that is not otherwise published

Do you need only annual passenger amounts, or other things also?

We do look for cargo data too, but it's not very important. If a passenger statistic includes cargo, we're happy, but we don't go looking for cargo data really

Does anybody here know how to read Persian? We have the passenger numbers from Iran, but Google translate does more harm than good

There is an English version of the website, but I have not been able to find an English version of the statistics
