WASHINGTON, DC ̶ Airports Council International – North America (ACI-NA) President and CEO Kevin M. Burke today congratulated Donald J. Trump on his election as the 45th president of the United States of America and newly elected members of the 115th Congress.
“I congratulate President-Elect Trump on his election to be our next president. I appreciate his recognition that improving infrastructure should be a top priority for the United States. A modernized infrastructure promotes economic growth and secures our position as leaders in the global marketplace. It is imperative that we address the more than $75 billion in airport infrastructure needs to meet the growing demand of passengers and keep our industry from falling behind. U.S. airports alone contribute more than $1.1 trillion to the global economy and support nearly 10 million jobs.
“Airports stand ready to work with the new administration and the new Congress to modernize our nation’s airport infrastructure, provide effective security and enhance the overall travel experience.”
