Sullivan, Orange County airports secure federal funding

WASHINGTON – The Federal Aviation Administration has awarded a total of $2.6 million to Sullivan County International Airport and Orange County Airport.

The funds will be used for a number of airport safety and quality improvement projects, including rehabilitating taxiways, constructing snow removal equipment, and reconstructing airport beacons.

Sullivan County will receive just under $2.1 million and Orange County will receive just under $536,700.

“Air travel in and out of Hudson Valley is vital to the connectivity and success of the regional economy, which is why, as the region reopens after the COVID-19 pandemic, it is critical that we provide the funding necessary to keep the airports safe and efficient,” said Senator Charles Schumer.

“This funding is key to ensuring the continued economic stability and success of this region,” said Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.

Neither airport has scheduled passenger service. Both serve recreational and corporate travel.
