* Note: Overseas excludes Canada and Mexico (For those two countries visitation estimates include all modes, for all other countries estimates are available only for air travel to that country)

The Visitation estimates are made based upon the airlines who voluntarily participate in this program. If a major carrier does not participate and we do not have access to other carriers who generate passenger travel to that destination, our estimates will be affected.
