Western Sydney Airport will generate tens of thousands of jobs – thousands more than previously estimated – according to new modelling from Ernst and Young.
By 2031 – five years after the airport is scheduled to open – Western Sydney Airport will have delivered an estimated 28,000 additional jobs both inside the airport and in surrounding areas. This number of new jobs in the region increases to 47,000 by 2041. Importantly, these new jobs are in addition to the 11,000 construction jobs during the period the airport is being built.
