Types of impacts analysed
Generated by the whole range of economic activities that provide services to passengers and goods by operating in the airport grounds (e.g. carriers, shops, cafes and restaurants, car rentals, banks, freight forwarders, cargo, handlers, catering companies etc.).
Induced economic activity generated by businesses providing passenger and cargo services while operating outside the airport grounds and the supply chains, activated by the direct activity operators, which do not provide direct services.
Increase in demand caused by the spending by income earners involved in various capacities in the activities triggered by the presence of the airport.
Tourism catalytic impact
Impact generated through the spending in local businesses (hotels and restaurants located outside the airport, car hire, etc.) by tourists and all those who reach the area through the airport.
We assessed the repercussions of airport activity on the business system, the labour market, the specialization model, the competitiveness and attractiveness of the local area, its propensity to innovate and the tax revenue collected to varying degrees by the local Public Administrations.
Based on data updated at 2015-2016, contained in several studies commissioned by Mr Massimiliano Serati, Director of the Research Centre for Territorial Development - LIUC Cattaneo University, the direct, indirect, induced and tourism catalytic impacts of our airport system generates repercussions on the Lombardy region quantifiable at over 19 billion Euro, which corresponds to the capacity to create about 154,000 jobs.
Such numbers confirm how the airport infrastructure ensemble managed by SEA is one of the most important "production systems" in the entire region.
