America’s airports are working hard to contribute to the U.S. economy, according to The Economic Impact of Commercial Aviation in 2010 report by CDM Smith.
In total, commercial airports in the U.S support 10.5 million jobs with a payroll of $365 billion, according to the report.
The report states that “the combined economic impact of airport-connected activity represents 8 per cent of U.S. GDP and 7 per cent of overall U.S. employment in 2010.”
The comparison of 2001 and 2010 economic impact showed that the airports’ job creation has increased 56 per cent in the past 10 years.
