THE IMPORTANCE OF AIR TRANSPORT TO THAILAND

Last modified Tuesday, 30 January 2018

 

         The air transport sector makes a major contribution to Thailand’s economy
Airlines, airport operators, airport on-site enterprises (restaurants and retail), aircraft manufacturers, and air navigation service providers employed 110,000 people in Thailand in 2014. In addition, by buying goods and services from local suppliers the sector supported another 390,000 jobs. On top of this, the sector is estimated to have supported a further 86,000 jobs by paying wages to its employees, some  or all of which are subsequently spent on consumer goods and services. Foreign tourists arriving by air to Thailand, who spend their money in the local economy, are estimated to have supported an additional 2.7 million jobs in 2014.
