Sacramento, California, isn't known as a sprawling metropolis like other cities in the Golden State. However, new reports show that its airport contributes a significant amount to the local economy. According to the Sacramento Press, the city's main airport contributes nearly 11,000 jobs with a payroll
of $442.5 million, while pumping more than $4 billion worth of revenue into the area.
The figures, which were released on Tuesday by the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors, accumulated data about Sacramento International airport and neighboring Mather and Executive airports.
"The Sacramento County Airport System is a bright spot in this slowly recovering economy," said interim county executive Steven Szalay, "[T]he new terminal opening later this year at Sacramento International Airport will ensure that our region has an airport ready to handle future growth."
The Board of Supervisors projects continued economic growth from the airports, with total local economic impact reaching $4.3 billion in 2012 and $4.5 billion in 2013. Mather and Executive airports contributed a respective $151.3 million and $20.7 million into the economy in 2010.
