In an article about inventions, the Financial Times quotes ATAG figures. The relevant paragraph is here:

"And the air travel sector is already massively important to the global economy. If the aviation sector were a country, it would rank 19th in the world in terms of gross domestic product, according to the Air Transport Action Group, an aviation industry lobby organisation. In less than a century, the sector has gone from nothing to generating $539bn a year and employing more than 56m people in aviation and related tourism."
