Join NYAMA Today!

NYAMA advocates for airports to deliver major positive economic impact by bringing air service, jobs and tax revenue to the state and its communities. Airports are economic engines fueling growth in the communities they serve. According to data from the New York State Department of Transportation and updated figures from the Port Authority of NY-NJ, the aviation industry contributes over $72 billion in annual economic activity in New York State and more than 500,000 NY based jobs in aviation or aviation-related industries. The economic benefits of New York State airports are impressive. As a whole, aviation generates $25 billion in payroll and well over $6 billion in state and local tax revenue annually.
