The ADOT Aeronautics Group in collaboration with IHS Markit and Kimley-Horn have announced the 2021 Arizona Aviation Economic Impact Study (2021 Arizona AEIS) results. This study revealed that in 2019 Arizona's 67 publicly owned, public-use airports; the aerospace manufacturing and research industry; and 10 principal military installations contributed $121.4B in economic activity (output) and supported 575,826 jobs earning $34.2B in wages in Arizona - demonstrating that continued investment into aviation is vital for the ongoing strength, diversity, and vitality of our state.
Arizona airports specifically contributed $59.4B in economic activity to the state economy—nearly double the impact calculated during the previous Arizona AEIS in 2012.
