It is estimated that air transportation helps drive around $1.5 trillion in U.S. economic activity, providing over 10 million jobs. This lucrative market offers many international airlines a great incentive and opportunity to improve their financials with the added benefit of expanding their global reach vis-à-vis their worldwide brand recognition by adding more U.S. gateways.
