  • The state of Pennsylvania is providing additional funding for a variety of projects at the state’s airports.

    In announcing the grants for 23 airports in the Commonwealth, Governor Tom Wolf noted that “Hundreds of thousands of jobs are supported by aviation in Pennsylvania, and these investments will help them operate safely, expand to meet demands, or attract more growth.”

    In all about $5.4 million will be distributed through the Aviation Transportation Assistance Program. The Money will be used in conjunction with another $3.6 million raised in local matching funds.

    In northeastern Pennsylvania the Bloomsburg Municipal Airport will receive $200,000 for the final construction phase of the terminal building, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport will receive $550,000 to rehabilitate the existing parking garage and in Wyoming County $225,000 will be used by Skyhaven Airport to construct a taxiway and rehabilitate hangar ramps.
