$10 million in federal income relief going to Buffalo Niagara International Airport

The money will be used to make improvements to the runway.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand announced that the Buffalo Niagara International Airport will receive $10 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation. The funds will be used for safety and quality improvement projects.

The money will be used to rehabilitate the runway at the airport.

“Air travel is vital to the connectivity and success of the Upstate economy, which is why I have fought tooth and nail over the last year and a half to get airports the funding they need to keep services running again,” said Senator Schumer. 

“Airports serve important functions in many communities, connecting people to the rest of the world and allowing for economic opportunities to land. I will continue to fight for federal funding to keep our airports open and operational and to make sure Upstate New York has the help it needs to revive and thrive.”
