Airport X News - David Ward

After a $10 billion COVID-19 relief package passed last summer and a smaller $2 billion in supplemental money approved in December for airports, the industry is now turning its efforts toward funding for 2021.

“We’re expecting another round of coronavirus relief to be one of the first things up [in the new administration], followed by infrastructure, followed by a focus on environmental issues,” said Joel Bacon, executive vice president, government and public affairs, American Association of Airport Executives (ARRA). “I think those are the big three buckets we’re expecting to be front and center. We’re obviously going to have a stake in all of those, particularly the first two.” here
