U.S. Airport Infrastructure Needs Have Increased from $115 Billion to $151 Billion
Airports Council International – North America (ACI-NA), the trade association representing commercial service airports in the United States and Canada, today released the 2023 U.S. Airport Infrastructure Needs Report: Growing Needs Heighten Urgency to Modernize America’s Airports. ACI-NA estimates that America’s airports need $151 billion over the next five years to fund necessary infrastructure projects, up more than 30 percent from $115 billion just two years ago.
“Investment in U.S. airport infrastructure continues to lag behind the industry’s needs, and that gap continues to grow,” said ACI-NA President and CEO Kevin M. Burke. “Continued infrastructure investment and reduced regulatory burdens for America’s airports will support good-paying jobs, stimulate the economy, advance important environmental goals, and improve the passenger experience for millions of travelers. It’s time for Congress to make meaningful reforms in how it funds America’s critical airport infrastructure.”
