Small airports share $205m in grants

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has awarded US$205m in grants for infrastructure work at small airports in 34 states.

Transportation secretary Elaine Chao said that the new Airport Improvement Program grants directly address the need for improved aviation infrastructure – especially in rural communities.

This first increment of supplemental funding provides grants to projects at 37 airports. The projects include runway reconstruction and rehabilitation, and the maintenance of taxiways, aprons and terminals.

The funding is in addition to the US$3.31bn already awarded in regular Airport Improvement Program (AIP) funding during fiscal year 2018.
