Higgins helps the Airport

Congressman Brian Higgins has helped secure $1,828,253 in federal funding for improvements to the Buffalo Niagara International Airport.

As Congressman Higgins explains, “These federal funds will contribute to a number of projects aimed at improving efficiencies and the passenger experience.”

“We are grateful for the tremendous support we received from Congressman Higgins,” said Kimberley Minkel, NFTA Executive Director. “This funding will help improve the safety of the airport and provide for the airport’s continued growth as we continue to attract economic development to Western New York. It will also allow us to continue to provide award winning personal and business travel services for our many customers.”

The NFTA will receive $856,388 to expand the airport’s Remain Overnight Apron. The RON allows airlines to park planes, which makes the BNIA a more valuable destination. A second grant of $971,865 helps the NFTA remove some older properties. When it comes to airports, the cleaner the better.
