Elmira/Corning Airport receives $10.5m funding

ELMIRA--U.S. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) announced Wednesday, Sept. 20 $10,500,000 in federal funding for the Elmira/Corning Regional Airport. The funding was allocated through the U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Specifically, the Elmira/Corning Regional Airport will use the funding for renovations to the passenger terminal building.
"Keeping our airports in top-notch shape is crucial to attracting business and tourism," said Schumer. "With this funding, the Elmira/Corning Regional Airport will be able to renovate its passenger terminal which will improve comfort, safety and operations for the passengers and pilots that fly in and out of Chemung County every day."
"Investing in infrastructure at our airports makes them safer and more efficient for businesses and travelers," said Gillibrand. "These funds allocated through the Department of Transportation are an important investment that will allow the Elmira/Corning Regional Airport to upgrade its facilities. I will continue to push for resources that would improve service and enhance convenience for travelers at airports across New York."
The funding will cover the first phase of the project that include demolition of the eastern half of the terminal building, construction of the passenger departure lounge, public circulation space, inbound baggage handling system, and general site and utility renovations.
This funding is awarded through the Airport Improvement Program (AIP) and is administered by DOT's Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The Airport Improvement Program provides grants to public agencies for the planning and development of public-use airports that are included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS). Funds obligated for the AIP are drawn from the Airport and Airway Trust Fund, which is supported by user fees, fuel taxes, and other similar revenue sources.
