Emirates boosted the air transport sector by $274 million; $76 million in petroleum and chemicals sector; $62 million in manufacturing sector; $39 million in trade, banking and insurance sector and $145 million in other sectors of the economy.

Emirates directly employs 1,045 employees and supports a total of 72,323 jobs in India through its operations – with 9304 jobs being direct employment impact and 63,019 jobs being indirect employment impact.

“This is the first comprehensive study of its kind. We have studied four impacts: first, the direct contribution of airline operations on the Indian economy; second, the indirect contribution of aviation to other sectors through multiplier effects; third, the generation of jobs in India; and fourth, contributions through the tourist dollars earned,” Shekhar Shah, director general, NCAER.
