A4A Monthly Passenger and Cargo Yield (Fares per Mile)

September 21, 2015 Statistics & Trends No Comments Email Email

Passenger “yield” is a commonly used metric representing the average fare paid by customers to fly one mile (revenue passenger mile or RPM). It is a key indicator of the price of air travel and is a weighted average expressed in cents. Likewise, cargo “yield” represents the average price paid by customers to transport one ton (2,000 pounds) of freight and mail one mile (cargo revenue ton mile or cargo RTM).

The following tables are the most current and real-time source of actual prices paid by customers. The results are expressed in nominal terms, are net of taxes and fees (which can be a substantial portion of an airline ticket) and remain unadjusted for trip length.
