The report compares the scheduled flight activity of commercial air carriers in the United States during May 1967 with that of May 1965. Total scheduled air carrier flights for May 1967 increased 45 percent over the scheduled flights for May 1965. Jet air carrier service more than doubled with an increase of 223 percent, while the number of flights by turboprop aircraft increased by 195 percent. Flights by piston aircraft decreased during the same period by 21 percent. Air taxi and Instrastate scheduled service increased tremendously during the two-year period. A direct comparison May 1967 with May 1965 by air carriers in this category of service is not feasible since some of those reporting in May 1965 have been dissolved or have assumed a new name, and many more have come into operation since May 1965. There were approximately 20 scheduled air carriers operating air taxi and intrastate service in May 1965, while 64 were listed in the May 1967 Official Airline Guide. Scheduled Friday flights increased from 347 in May 1965 to 1761 in May 1967. These 1761 flights represent 10.4 percent of all scheduled flights. Scheduled air carriers excluding air taxi and intrastate increased from 56 in May 1965 to 82 in May 1967. Of these, foreign air carriers accounted for 24 in May 1965 and 49 in May 1967. Of the 49 foreign carriers, 14 were Canadian based and 6 were based in Mexico. Author
