Buffalo Airport Runway Upgrade

The Buffalo Niagara International Airport is set to receive more than $27 million in federal funding in order to repair one of its runways thanks to Sen. Chuck Schumer, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and the New York delegation. The total, $27,769,082, was allocated through the Federal Aviation Administration and will be used to maintain the structural integrity of the pavement and extend its useful life.

“Buffalo Niagara International is one of our state’s busiest airports. It plays a critical role in welcoming tourists from around the country and the world and helping our upstate economy thrive," said Sen. Gillibrand.

The funding comes from two separate grants; $14,435,749 from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) of 2020, $13,333,333 of funding from the American Rescue Plan to complete the project’s third phase.

"This one-two combo from the CARES Act and American Rescue Plan will help Buffalo Niagara International Airport reach new heights and accelerate Western New York’s regional economic takeoff," Sen. Chuck Schumer added.
