Swiss aviation numbers
Switzerland's six largest airports handled more than 58 million passengers in 2019. This corresponds to an increase of 1.7% compared to the previous year.
For every million passengers, 750 to 1000 jobs are created at a national airport.
In 2018, Swiss scheduled airlines served 121 destinations in 62 countries and 6 in Switzerland.
The Swiss business aviation industry secures around 34,000 direct and indirect jobs and generates annual revenue of CHF 15 billion.
Skyguide air navigation services controlled a total of 1,298,754 instrument flights in 2018, of which 808,445 were transit flights over Switzerland.
At 1.3 % of total federal expenditure on transport, federal spending on civil aviation is extremely modest. With few exceptions, no state funds flow into aviation.
