Notes:

Aeronautical revenues are generated principally from airlines and other commercial aviation sources, and consist mainly of landing fees, terminal fees and the recovery of security costs.

Revenues from concessionaire sales (stores, restaurants etc.), car parking and space rental are considered non-aeronautical.

Rent figures may differ from the actual cash received by the Federal Government due to accrual accounting treatment.

2 Including airports with control towers and/or flight service stations (97 in 2011) and airports without control towers/or flight service stations reporting aircraft movements on a voluntary basis (115 in 2011).

Itinerant movements are those in which aircraft arrive from or depart to a point other than the reporting airport; or where aircraft leave the circuit (i.e. a pattern or a standard path for coordinating air traffic usually at close proximity of the airport) but return without landing at another airport.

Local movements are those in which aircraft remain in the circuit (i.e. a pattern or a standard path for coordinating air traffic usually at close proximity of the airport). Local movements are often carried out during training flights (touch-and-go), equipment tests, etc.
