Two area airports are receiving a total of $2.4 million in federal funding for upgrades and enhancements, Rep. Christopher Collins, R-Clarence, announced Friday.
The Niagara Falls International Airport received two Federal Aviation Administration grants totaling $2.1 million, funding the construction of a new terminal and the acquisition of 68 acres of land for new runways. The Perry-Warsaw Airport in Wyoming County also received $295,980 from the FAA to enhance two runways.
“Providing these local airports the necessary funding for a variety of improvements will allow for more efficient and safer airport operations,” Collins said. “Continued investment in local infrastructure is necessary to ensure that valuable economic assets like the Niagara Falls International Airport and the Perry-Warsaw Airport can continue to grow and successfully serve their communities.”
