Hilo airport gets funds to replace passenger loading bridges

The state will receive $2.85 million from the Federal Aviation Administration to replace four passenger loading bridges at the Hilo International Airport.

The bridges that are in disrepair are 18 years old, according to a press released issued yesterday by U.S. Sen. Dan Inouye.

“Maintaining our airports is critical to ensuring that residents and visitors can travel in and out of the state and move safely from island to island,” Inouye said. “These funds will help ensure that a small hub like Hilo is up to date with the latest equipment.”
