FDOT 2019 economic impact study reports airport generates $2.1 billion
The Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) 2019 economic impact study concluded that the airport generates $2.1 billion in economic impact for the region annually.
To reach the figure, FDOT took into consideration both direct and indirect economic impacts in four primary categories (on-airport activity, visitor spending, industry reliance and military spending), as well as a carefully crafted multiplier to properly measure the recirculation and multiplication of funds through the economy.
