MIT Airline Data Project: Cool Stuff

Okay all you airline nerds out there. (And you know who you are!)

Here is something that I think is really cool.


MIT’s International Center for Air Transportation and the Global Airline Industry Program is making available to the public a new website hat for the first time collects a comprehensive data set looking at individual carrier and industry trends.  The Airline Data Project (ADP) represents an ambitious effort to compile key data for 15 of the largest U.S. airlines.

Why is this so cool?

Because while the information used in this project is all “out there,” this is the first time this information has been put together in a way that is quickly accessible for normal people like you and me. And it goes back to 1995.

Thanks to Bill Swelbar, Research Engineer at MIT, who let us know about this nifty new toy.
