UK – EU Transition, and UK Civil Aviation Regulations

To access current UK civil aviation regulations, including AMC and GM, CAA regulatory documents, please use this link to UK Regulation. Please note, if you use information and guidance under the Headings, the references to EU regulations or EU websites in our guidance will not be an accurate information or description of your obligations under UK law. These pages are undergoing reviews and updates.

The CAA collects statistics from all United Kingdom airlines. Monthly aggregate information is supplied on each route served together with quarterly returns of fleet and personnel data and, for the major carriers, annual standardised profit and loss accounts and balance sheets.

From the individual route level data it is possible to build up pictures of the activity of each airline. In addition the traffic and capacity on each route can be assessed. Airline statistics are available as monthly or annual publications or you may commission reports, within certain confidentiality constraints, to suit your particular needs. Historic files include annual and monthly data.

To facilitate improved download times and greater flexibility of use of our data, each table, from June 2001 for airport and punctuality data, and May 2001 for airline data, is available in two formats.

  • PDF files. To view all of the documents on this web site you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader. This is available free of charge from the Adobe web site.
  • Comma Separated Value (CSV), suitable for filtering and sorting, in a spreadsheet application.

Please note: Some PDF files contain notes concerning the data within them, the notes are not shown in the respective CSV files; hence the CSV file should always be used in conjunction with the corresponding PDF file.
