CAA Provisional Airport Stats

Hi guys does anyone have the link for the provisional airport stats? I can only find the confirmed data up until March on the CAA website. Cheers.

Very late! They used to be out between the 14th and 16th depending how weekends fell.

If the airports supply the data to the CAA it could be that too many airports are late providing the information. If it's just one or two airports, they normally release the rest.
Or I imagine it could be problems with the CAA system.

I think it's just changed over to a new reporting system so that could be the reason for the delay.

In all fairness, you're not the only one - I've checked several times, as the new design of the CAA website is definitely a retrograde step versus the old one. It's far harder to find things, and the data download formats are an absolute mess if you are trying to look at or compare data from successive years or months. Someone has re-designed this without taking any account of how people might use what they produce.

I agree with you Flightrider, and the delayed publication dates of the monthly provisional airport stats seems to have started when the new website came into existence a few months ago.

It might be coincidental of course but there is no doubt that most months they are now published at least a week later, sometimes longer, than used to be the case.

There is no inherent problem in that for the avid statisticians - just have to wait a bit longer - but the layout of and journey around the new site is disappointing.

The Heathrow domestic figures were all over the place a couple of months ago.

The old site used to show the expected release date for the figures which was helpful.

Another "improvement" to a perfectly good website.

Nearly June and still no sign of the April statistics. Has anyone news of a possible release date?

I just wonder if the provisional stats report is being discontinued with just one 'final' report
being issued.

Should one now assume that these figures are NEVER going to appear? Why has the CAA not set out the reasons for this delay? Or have they just cancelled them? Come on CAA - please say SOMETHING!!

There is an acknowledgement on their website that with the new reporting system, data will be delayed. No mention of how long though.


Estimated release dates

With the launch of AvStats, the system that processes airport and airline data, there is a delay to the release of published reports. We will update this page as soon as further information is available.

So basically they have introduced a new IT system it hasn't been properly beta tested and has gone #### up

More interestingly what on earth is the new system , is it reporting mechanism or website?

What on earth is AvStats ?

A simpleton could pull this info together for the top 20 airports in less than a day with Excel, pen , paper , calculator ?

In a nutshell, you highlight the issue here. It is completely unacceptable for the CAA to ignore its users in this way. There should be a message on the web page, updated regularly, stating what the issue is and giving some idea as to the date of resolution. I note that it has a transformation manager who should have a grip of issues like this.
