According to the Value of Air Transport in Brazil (Valor do Transporte Aéreo no Brasil), a study recently released by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), which highlights that aviation is a very important facilitator of economic and social development, points out that the sector contributes US$18,8 billion to Brazil’s GDP, generating over 800,000 jobs in the country. In addition, it is not just about the number of jobs that air transport offers, but also about quality, and jobs in the aviation sector are on average 4.4 times more productive than in the general economy.
The research also points out that the aviation market in Brazil has great growth potential, especially in terms of domestic connectivity and diversification of direct international connections. But in order to do so, it is essential to maintain the industry’s competitiveness by overcoming three challenges: the high cost of business, the inefficient use of infrastructure and the lack of regulatory harmonization with global best practices. Overcoming these challenges, aviation’s economic contribution to the Brazilian economy can increase to over US$88 billion a year, supporting more than 1.4 million jobs.
