What does the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law mean for U.S. airports?

Over 3,000 U.S. airports will be benefitting from this once-in-a-generation funding which will give airports an opportunity to build safer and more sustainable airports. This will be the central theme of IAR’s upcoming summit.

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will award billions of dollars made available by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to 3,075 airports around the nation. The money can be invested in runways, taxiways, safety, and sustainability projects, as well as terminal, airport to transit connections and roadway projects.

This generation-defining bill will be discussed in-depth during a keynote session at International Airport Review’s upcoming summit ‘Envisioning the future of air transportation: A smarter future for airports’. Register to listen to the experts from ACI-North America discuss this funding and what it means for airports in the U.S.

Speaking to International Airport Review, Philippe Villard, Vice President of Economic Policy for ACI-North America, said: “Airports are essential contributors to the U.S. economy. Yet, airport infrastructure has suffered for years from chronic underfunding for critical developments projects. By providing $25 billion for airport-related projects over five years, in addition to existing airport funding and financing streams, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) funding is a much-needed down payment to upgrade airport facilities across the country. Airports look forward to continuing to do their part to strengthen America’s air transport network.” 

This special U.S.-focused summit will be bringing together 400 attendees from the airport sector to network and discuss key themes and challenges around streamlining passenger experience, creating new revenue streams, driving operational efficiency, sustainability, and facility and passenger health and safety.
