Communication, Implementation, and Outcomes of Airport Economic Impact Studies

Airport economic impact studies are used as indicators of the growth and sustainability of the aviation industry. The collected data demonstrate the importance of an airport and the economic growth of regional, statewide, and national airports. It can be difficult to effectively leverage an airport’s economic impact study by demonstrating how the airport contributes to economic growth. The objective of this synthesis is to provide information on how airport economic impact studies have been communicated to stakeholders, how the studies have been implemented to achieve objectives, and what the resulting effects were to the agencies and airports included in the studies. Information used in this study was attained through a literature review and surveys of airports, which provided six case examples from airports and state transportation departments found in Chapter 4.
