Menendez, Booker Announce Another $1M in Federal Funding to Upgrade Atlantic City Airport

U.S. Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker today announced $1,019,655 from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for the construction of a deicing facility at Atlantic City International Airport. 

“Investing in our local airports keeps our state competitive, boosts our economy and creates new jobs,” said Sen. Menendez. “This funding will help modernize the Atlantic City airport, while allowing air travel to continue running smoothly and keep the region’s tourism economy flourishing.”

“Federal resources to address New Jersey’s aging infrastructure help strengthen our economy, create good jobs, and keep travelers moving,” said Sen. Booker. “By continuing to invest in the modernization of Atlantic City Airport, we help improve safety and increase our state’s economic competitiveness.”

In May, the senators announced $8.4 million in funding for the construction of Atlantic City Airport’s deicing facility. The senators also announced earlier this year over $16 million in federal investments to improve New Jersey’s airports.
