Industry News | FAA Invests Millions to Build Safer, More Accessible Airports Across the US

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration has awarded more than $608 million to build safer, more accessible airports serving a wide swath of the country. The first round of 2022 Airport Improvement Program (AIP)  grants will go to 441 airports located in big cities, small towns, and everywhere in between across 46 states, American Samoa, and the Northern Mariana Islands. This funding is in addition to the $20 billion the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law invests in U.S. airports. The funding is being used to improve safety areas, reconstruct runways and aprons, update lighting systems, renovate restrooms to be ADA compliant, and update security areas and concessions.
