(HARRISBURG) – The Pittsburgh International Airport will receive $2.4 million in state funds toward development its cargo facility, state Senator Devlin Robinson (R-37) announced today.
“While air travel plummeted, air cargo traffic at the Pittsburgh airport surged during the COVID-19 pandemic,” Senator Robinson said. “Investing in the ongoing development of these cargo facilities is a strategic investment in our local economy and in future jobs for the surrounding area.”
The airport will receive $2.4 million for continued commercial air cargo facility development, including air cargo buildings, aircraft and vehicular access and parking.
The grants are funded through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Aviation Transportation Assistance Program, which is dedicated to improving the state’s aviation infrastructure. Funds totaling $10 million were awarded to 12 airports around the state.
