Hawaii airports will receive more than $144 million in new federal funding from the American Rescue Plan.
Funding from the plan, which was signed into law in March, will help support airports that have experienced severe economic disruption caused by the COVID-19 public health emergency.
U.S. Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) said, “Hawaii airport workers and the entire airline industry have taken a significant hit during this crisis. This new federal funding will support salaries for workers and help our airports recover.”
Oahu’s airports will get $74.4 million, Maui airports will receive $29.2 million, Hawaii island airports will get $24 million, and $14.5 million will go to airports on Kauai. Molokai and Lanai will receive $1.3 million each for their airports.
