The National Institute of Statistics makes available statistics on air transport for the year 2011. The survey on air transport is carried out in accordance with EC Regulation 437/2003 of the European Parliament and the Council of 27 February 2003. The survey is a census and collects information from airport management companies, with the collaboration of the National Civil Aviation Authority (ENAC). Data covers the airport traffic of aircraft, passengers, freight and mail, incoming and/or departing from domestic airports, with regard to civil aviation business. In this note the main results of the survey are presented, with reference to the comparison between the domestic and international air traffic. Methodological aspects are explained in the informative note. Definitions are included in the glossary (in Italian only).

In 2011, total air traffic at the national airports recorded a positive trend: aircraft arrived and departed, over the previous year, increased by 0.2%, passengers by 6.4% and cargo and mail carried by 1.2% . For passengers, the increase is due both to national traffic (+6.9%) and international traffic (+6.4%). The reduction in the use of charter flights is relevant for the international traffic (-14.9%) and  less for domestic market (-7.6%).
