Benefits of Aviation
Aviation creates jobs and drives economic growth. The latest report from the Air Transport Action Group, compiled in association with Oxford Economics, shows that the industry supports 58 million jobs and $2.4 trillion in economic activity. And it is responsible for 35% of world trade by value.
Moreover, air transport’s connectivity is essential to social interaction and cultural exchange. It also makes possible numerous others industries, not least tourism—a key contributor to the development of many emerging economies.
By 2032, if forecasts are accurate, there will be over 6.5 billion passengers and aviation will support 103 million jobs and $5.8 trillion in economic activity.
Wider recognition of the benefits of aviation will facilitate a stronger partnership between regulators and the aviation industry.
It will also help to develop future sustainable transport policy, as well as promoting social and economic benefits across the world.
