Economic footprint

SEA Group is a fundamental driver of development for Lombardy region.

This is true particularly for municipalities neighbouring the airports, which benefit in a continuous and stable way from economic advantages provided by the employment and by the distribution of the added value perceived by SEA employees’ families and by other companies and entities operating within the airport system.

There is no doubt that Milan airport system has been acting as a capital attractor, job generator, and activator or catalyst of investment initiatives for the whole territory.

Its role as an extraordinary driver in some specific economic sectors such as tourism, logistics, transport and trade is also evident.
