Airports Council Welcomes Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework

WASHINGTON – Airports Council International – North America (ACI-NA), the trade association representing commercial service airports in the United States and Canada, today welcomed the announcement of a bipartisan infrastructure framework that includes $25 billion in new airport infrastructure investment.

“It is great to see bipartisan agreement about the pressing need to upgrade America’s airports,” said ACI-NA President and CEO Kevin M. Burke.  “For too long U.S. airports have been underfunded and unable to make many of the terminal, runway, and access improvements needed to keep pace with an increasing number of passengers and flights at their facilities.  With airports facing over $115 billion in documented infrastructure needs over the next five years, the $25 billion in new investments called for in today’s agreement set the stage for major upgrades at our airports that will help the economic recovery and improve the customer experience in communities nationwide.”
