US funds Alaskan air lifelines


The US Federal Aviation Administration has made $85 million in grants to 19 Alaskan airports through its Airport Improvement Program.
While many of the gateways are small, aviation is the backbone of daily commerce for many communities, including the delivery of food and life-saving supplies.
The projects announced today will not have to pay the usual local match thanks to nearly $100 million in President Biden’s American Rescue Plan Act.
They include funds for snow removal equipment, to upgrade runways, taxiways and aprons, lighting, along with other improvements to airfields and seaplane bases.
