VAN NUYS » A recent economic impact report shows that Van Nuys Airport continues to be a thriving economic engine in the San Fernando Valley, contributing more than $2 billion to the local economy in 2015.

That’s nearly 55 percent more than the. 88-year-old Valley aviation hub was credited with a decade ago, according to the Los ,Angeles County Economic Development Corp. study, when the airport known as VNY generated $1.3 billion.

“VNY plays a critical role in Southern California by providing good-paying jobs and generating business revenues that benefit our neighboring communities,” said Los Angeles World Airports Commissioner Jeffery J. Daar, in a statement. “As Los Angeles’ No. 1 business airport and a world-class general aviation facility, we are proud of VNY’s significant positive contributions to our region.”

The LAEDC airport impact analysis, “Los Angeles World Airports: Van Nuys Airport 2015,” follows economic impact reports conducted every 10 years by the airport operator. A 2006 report conducted by Martin Associates said the airport generated $1.3 billion a year in business revenues while generating 12,000 jobs. The new report said the airport generated $2 billion in revenues, plus $295 million in local, state and federal tax revenue and $675 million produced by .10,480 jobs.

In addition, LAWA will be spending $63.9 million through 2022 on capital upgrades to the 730-acre airport. While the airport produces 1,500 fewer jobs than a decade ago, airport officials said they now pay more for greater overall economic impact. Van Nuys Airport, now the second busiest general aviation. airport in the nation, remains the No.1 airport for destination flights, with more than 217,000 takeoffs and landings in 2015.

With more than 100 airport businesses, it is also home to 580 aircraft, including 370 fixed-wing propeller planes, 162 charter jets and 48 helicopters, airport officials say. “Our airport is a valuable infrastructure asset that provides business growth, job creation and economic vitality for both the Valley and the entire region,” said Councilwoman Nury Martinez, who represents the district that includes VNY.
