Airports are taking all necessary precautions to protect the traveling public.

 Airports Council International – North America (ACI-NA) President and CEO Kevin M. Burke today released the following statement regarding new information on how the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will administer the $10 billion in grants for airports provided in the CARES Act.

“America’s airports are grateful for the support from Congress and the administration as they continue to navigate the unprecedented challenges related to the coronavirus pandemic,” said Burke. “These grants will help airports offset some of the financial damage from the abrupt, unexpected drop in air travel that resulted from necessary precautions to limit the spread of COVID-19. We are thankful for the dedication of DOT and FAA officials in working to distribute the much-needed CARES Act funds to airports. We will continue to work closely with all stakeholders to help airports get through this extraordinary time for our nation’s critical aviation infrastructure.”
