Definition: Passenger-kilometre offered

Transport

A passenger-kilometre is offered when one unit of passenger capacity is sailed one kilometre.

Note: Passenger-kilometres offered are equal to the sum of the products obtained by multiplying the authorised passenger capacity of the vessel and the port-to-port distance for all journeys.
The passenger carrying capacity will be the stated capacity recorded in the register of the classification society. <a href="">http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/ramon/statmanuals/files/KS-BI-03-002-__-N-EN.pdf</a>
