Albany International Airport Awarded $10. 6 Million To Modernize & Rehabilitate Facilities

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Albany International Airport was awarded a total of $10. 6 million that will go towards rehabilitation and infrastructure improvements in Airport Terminal A, including expanding hold room capacity, adding 2 new Passenger Boarding Bridges, and improving the HVAC and electrical systems.

The funding was awarded by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in competitive federal funding from the Airport Terminal Program, created by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Law, U.S. Sen. Majority Leader Charles Schumer and U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand announced Feb. 14. 

“This $10 million investment from the Bipartisan Infrastructure & Jobs Law I led to passage is the latest in helping the Albany Airport revitalization soar,” Sen. Schumer said in a statement. 

“Concourse A was built over 45 years ago, and today’s announcement underscores the importance of continuing to invest in ALB as an economic driver for the Capital Region,” said Philip Calderone, CEO at Albany International Airport. “As a result of this award, we will be able to make significant improvements to the concourse such as replacing aging infrastructure, increasing passenger access, and improving energy efficiency. This investment will also allow for the construction of two new gates and boarding bridges which will in turn provide opportunities for new routes and airlines.” 

The Bipartisan Infrastructure & Jobs Law provided $5 billion in competitive grants for airport terminal development projects that address the aging infrastructure of the nation’s airports. This represents the latest round of the funding. Last year, the Albany, Buffalo, Syracuse and Binghamton’s airports received a total of nearly $25 million in competitive federal funding through the program to modernize airport terminals.
