The projections have arisen from the second installment of a study that is being conducted by ALG-Europraxis, entitled "Aeronautical Development of El Salvador".

In the case of employment, the current 6600 jobs could go up to about 13,000 by 2022.

"

Taken into account in the study were the cases of Morocco, Turkey, Poland, Mexico, Colombia and South Africa.
