“Millions of Americans fly every day, and it’s important that our nation’s airports be equipped to handle such a volume of passengers. The grants we’re announcing today will make key improvements to ensure passengers move safely and efficiently through our airports—and is another example of the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to modernising our nation’s aviation systems.”

The airports receiving funding include:

  • Colorado Springs Airport in Colorado: 6.4 million USD to rehabilitate the existing terminal building and accommodate a 14,000-square-foot Federal Inspection Service facility
