Lincoln Airport receives $1.75 million in federal infrastructure support

Published on : Friday, January 21, 2022

Sen. Deb Fischer said that the Lincoln Airport will receive $1.75 million from the previously approved federal infrastructure bill for airport improvements.

She said that their state’s airports keep Nebraska communities connected and enable people to bring their world-class products to markets

The federal funding “will allow for much-needed updates that will make travel easier and more reliable,” Fischer said.

David Haring, executive director of the Lincoln Airport said that even in the best of times, the ability of the Lincoln Airport to meet all of its long-term infrastructure demands is challenging, executive director of the Lincoln Airport, said in welcoming the federal funding support.

The destabilization of the aviation industry and its resultant impact on the consistency of revenue streams has amplified this challenge.

The federal funding “will allow us to step up our efforts in catching up on a backlog of possible critical projects in the areas of snow removal operations, general aviation growth and flood mitigation,” he said.

The Lincoln Airport lost Delta Airlines service to Minneapolis this month, leaving it with service from a single passenger carrier, United Airlines.
