Aviation is crucial for jobs and prosperity in Switzerland, suggests IATA

IATA has released analysis showing that the competitiveness of Switzerland’s air transport sector could generate an additional 36,000 jobs and nearly €11 billion in extra GDP for the nation’s economy by 2037.

An IATA study, Switzerland Air Transport Regulatory Competitiveness Indicators, recommends that to maximise the employment and prosperity opportunities created by a successful air transport industry, Switzerland should move forward with a cost-effective expansion of Zurich and Geneva airports, without additional restrictions on night flights, and tackle aviation carbon emissions by supporting the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA).

Air transport’s contribution to the Swiss economy is significant. The industry at present supports nearly 207,000 jobs and contributes CHF 27.7 billion to the economy, accounting for 4.1 per cent of Switzerland’s GDP. If the government pursues an agenda for competitiveness, an additional 36,000 jobs and CHF 13 billion will be generated by 2037. In contrast, 13,000 jobs could be lost over the same period if measures to inhibit competitiveness are adopted.
