UK Civil Aviation Regulations

These are published by the CAA on our UK Regulations pages. EU Regulations and EASA Access Guides published by EASA no longer apply in the UK. Our website and publications are being reviewed to update all references. Any references to EU law and EASA Access guides should be disregarded and where applicable the equivalent UK versions referred to instead.

Data on airports and airlines, 1983 – 1997

The data on this page can be downloaded as zip files. The files contain historical data collected by the CAA between 1983 and 1997.

These files are scanned copies of paper records.

There may be some anomalies in the data, despite efforts made to ensure the correct presentation of historical statistics. We no longer hold information from this period on our databases and we rely on hard copies produced at the time.


There may be some errata in the publications. Lists of errata are usually placed immediately after the table of contents, but may be elsewhere in some documents.


Some publications contain handwritten notes and amendments, especially the earlier publications. It is not possible for the CAA to verify whether these convey accurate information.

Blank pages

Blank pages have been removed from documents. So, for example, if page 35 is followed immediately by page 37, it is likely that page 36 was a blank page.
