Have you ever wondered how much annual economic activity is generated by your local airport? Would you like to know how this translates into jobs, earned income, and spending in the local economy? If so, please join us to learn more about how airports benefit communities throughout Minnesota.

In 2019, MnDOT conducted a statewide airport economic impact study, which culminated in a public economic impact calculator. In this training, you’ll learn about the study methodology, the calculator, and media tools to help share the economic benefits of airports throughout the state.

Get more information about this free training on the event web page.
