Airport Boardings Study

The Montana Department of Transportation Aeronautics Division gathers airline boarding statistics from the seven major air carriers in the state and the eight essential air service airports. These statistics compare the previous year's boardings and are compiled monthly.

Rates & Charges Survey

The Montana Department of Transportation Aeronautics Division produces and publishes an annual survey reporting various rates and charges at Montana's large and small airports.

For small airports, we monitor hangar charges along with fuel flowage fees, and other general notes. This information is voluntarily submitted by each airport.

Our Division also produces a much more detailed Rates & Charges Survey for the large commercial service airports. This large airport survey incorporates dozens of criteria for various rates and charges.

Both surveys are conducted annually and are usually updated in January.
