The 1998 annual "In-Flight Survey" report on "Overseas Travelers to the United States" is available. The cost for the 1998 report is $650.00. To get further details visit our web site: http://tinet.ita.doc.gov/

TI's In-Flight Survey provides the only in-depth, national, comparable data on overseas travelers to the United States (Overseas excludes Canada and Mexico). The report is a must for those industry professionals that need more detail than the basic information available on our web site. The 1998 annual In-Flight Survey report is based upon almost 41,000 surveys of overseas travelers to the United States.

If you want to know how the international market is changing and who is traveling to this country, the 1998 In-Flight Survey report is the source for this data. From this report and data base, you can obtain estimates of how many international travelers visited certain destinations (states or cities), and you can evaluate the demographic and traveler behavior characteristics of these overseas travelers to the United States to help you understand market trends. The 1998 report has the same format as the 1996-1997 reports.

Report Organization:

There are four (4) sections or sets of cross tabs provided in this report. The first three sets of tabs display information for all of the world regions and some of the primary countries (21 in total).
