Aviation Benefits Beyond Borders is addressing the future workforce needs of the aviation industry.
In a blog on its website, it addresses the contribution to the air transport industry in 20 years. The article reads as follows:
Several aircraft manufacturers, including Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer, estimate the future demand for air transport in the form of revenue passenger kilometres. The most recent estimates suggest that demand for air transport will increase by an average of 4.7% per annum over the next 20 years. That implies that demand for air travel will increase by a factor of two and a half over the period.
If this growth path is achieved, then in 2032 the air transport industry will contribute:
- 13.9 million direct jobs and $1.4 trillion of GDP to the world economy;
- Including indirect and induced contributions, 36.7 million jobs and $3.8 trillion in GDP;
- Once the impacts of global tourism are taken into account, a total of 103 million jobs and $5.8 trillion in GDP.
