Emirates says can support 14,000 more jobs in India

Dubai-based Emirate airline’s operations have contributed over $848 million (Dh3.11 billion) annually to India’s GDP, supporting over 86,000 Indian jobs and generating almost $1.7 billion in foreign exchange earnings, the airline said in a press statement on Thursday.

The study was conducted by the airline in cooperation with the National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER) in New Delhi.

With India’s aim to become the third-largest aviation market by 2020 and the largest by 2030, the study emphasises the important contribution that Emirates makes to India’s economy and aviation sector. The report also forecasts the increased contribution that Emirates would be able to make if capacity entitlements were expanded.

Adnan Kazim, Divisional Senior Vice President – Strategic Planning, Revenue Optimisation and Aeropolitical Affairs, Emirates Airline, said: “Emirates has been committed to India since we started operations in 1985. In the past 30 years, we have progressively grown our services to India by increasing capacity and opening new routes. Today we operate 183 weekly flights to nine points across India, offering our customers in India seamless connections to more than 140 destinations, and also facilitating inbound visitors from across our global network into India.”
