An integral part of the national aviation system, Van Nuys Airport (VNY) is one of the world's busiest general aviation airports, dedicated to noncommercial air travel. With four fixed based operators and more than 200 businesses located on the 730-acre lot, VNY is responsible for over $2 billion in business activity to the Los Angeles County economy and over $295 million in local, state and federal tax revenue.
Over 10,000 jobs are affiliated with the airport and over 5,000 of those jobs are on the airfield. VNY is responsible for $674.6 million in labor income making VNY one of the largest employers and economic engines in the San Fernando Valley.
VNY’s latest economic impact study estimates that for every $1 million spent on capital improvement projects, there will be positive economic impacts of $583,000 in labor income.
In 2022 VNY spent $63.9 million on Airport Capital Improvement Projects (ACIP) and non-ACIP projects. The economic impacts of capital improvement projects include 670 jobs, $37.2 million in labor income, $107.5 million in business revenues, and $13 million in local, state and federal tax revenues.
VNY is on track for reaching carbon neutrality by 2045 and reached a major milestone in 2019 when the airport achieved Level 3 Optimisation through Airport’s Council International’s Air Carbon Accreditation program due VNY’s strong initiatives in offering sustainable and unleaded fuel, movement toward electric vehicles, innovation in solar projects and storm water collection.
