San Francisco International Airport conducted a study of the airport's economic impact in 2012.
Among the highlights of the study, San Francisco International directly accounted for $5.4 billion in business activity, supporting 33,580 jobs at the airport. Operations at the airport in 2012 generated a total of $2.5 billion in state and local tax revenues, while off-site business activities directly dependent on airport services raised the airport's economic contribution to the whole Bay Area to $31.2 billion in business sales, with 153,000 jobs.
"The results of the study demonstrate that SFO is a huge economic engine for our region," said Airport Director John L. Martin. "We are proud to make such a positive contribution in our local communities."
