Air Transport Contributes in Argentina’s Economy

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced new data showing that aviation and aviation-induced tourism contribute USD9.6 billion to Argentina’s economy to support 300,000 jobs.

The findings are among the highlights from The Importance of Air Transport in Argentina study conducted by Oxford Economics on behalf of IATA.

"Argentina's economy and people all benefit from the many contributions of aviation. Air transport supports international trade and commerce, foreign direct investment and tourism. However, Argentina could be reaping far greater benefits from aviation if the right airport and air navigation infrastructure were in place and the country's taxes and charges were competitive with other countries in the region," said Peter Cerda, regional vice president, Americas, IATA.
