Gross Revenues

The Penticton Airport generates an estimated $24.73 million for the provincial economy.   Of that total, the revenues generated directly by organizations at Penticton Airport in 1998 are estimated to be $12.6 million.  The Air carriers/Charter operator sector contributed the largest component, generating an estimated $8.5 million of direct revenues last year.

The direct revenues for Penticton Airport have been calculated using the data provided by the businesses and organizations located at the airport.  Some participants could not provide details regarding their operating revenues due to their company policies concerning confidentiality.  Both scheduled air carriers fall into this category, and detailed estimates of their annual revenues have been prepared based on outbound passenger statistics (by destination), and surveys of the lowest fares available at random dates throughout the year.

A summary of the direct, indirect, induced, and total estimates of gross revenue contributed by each airport sector is provided in the table to the below.

The multipliers are  applied to the direst gross revenue amounts (expressed in $millions) for each airport sector to determine the direct, indirect and induced employment estimates.
