Le BIPE evaluates the contribution of air transport to the economy and employment

The main challenges of air transport growth with regards to the local economy are:

  • What is the usefulness of my assets for the region and what is the contribution?
  • Who are the beneficiaries of my activity throughout the journey?
  • What is the macroeconomic performance of my activity?

Le BIPE has deployed a modelling tool for the valuation of the entire value chain:

  • Airports: work created by on-site activity (direct)
  • Suppliers: performance of suppliers of direct players (indirect)
  • Employees: employee spend, direct and indirect (induced)
  • Passengers: spend of business travellers and stays in the region (catalytic)

Economic and social contribution, and forecasts

  • Economic and human returns on asset: revenues per passenger, rate of contribution to local employment, returns on local taxation policies…
  • Profiling of passengers for each destination country: spend, occupation, length of stay…
  • Mapping of regions of stay and tourist sites visited
  • Scenarios for the valuation of master plans

Examples of results derived: valuation by type of passenger, location of employees, impact of new airlines

Le BIPE’s tools to respond to these challenges

  • CES®: models to measure economic and social contribution
