Kamloops Airport is an economic engine, contributing to the growth of our city and region. We're pleased to present highlights from our 2013 Economic Impact Study.
The Direct, Indirect and Induced economic contribution is:
Tech speak: Direct inputs are from the businesses and agencies operating at the airport. Indirect impacts are those from supplying goods and services to the businesses and agencies operating at the airport. Induced impacts are from the economic activity driven by the spending of people directly or indirectly engaged at the airport.
An analogy is that the direct job is the person who loads the bags on to the airplane at the airport. An indirect job is the mechanic at the garage who maintains the baggage loading equipment. An induced job is the server at the coffee shop who job is supported by the baggage loader and the mechanic buying a coffee and a doughnut.
Kamloops Airport creates 610 direct, indirect and induced person years of employment. Travelers arriving by air create another 250 person years of employment in the food and accommodation sectors.
