Quantifying the economic impact of aviation in Dubai

This report sets out the contribution of the Emirates Group, Dubai Airports, and the aviation sector as a whole to the economy of Dubai in 2013. It assesses the value of the activity undertaken by businesses forming part of the aviation sector (the ‘direct’ impact), and that of the additional work carried out by other Dubai-based entities as a result of supply chain (‘indirect’) and employee spending (‘induced’) impacts, together with the associated employment effects. The study also analyses the benefits to the Dubai economy from aviation driven inbound tourism.
