Kearney Regional Airport to Receive $6.3 Million Grant

The Kearney Regional Airport is set to receive federal funding to help improve its facility. U.S. Senator Deb Fischer announced a $6.28 million grant from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

“Nebraska’s airports ensure our communities can stay connected and help our state’s world-class products make it to market. This $6.3 million investment will give Kearney Regional the resources it needs to expand its existing terminal and make other upgrades that will improve air travel for Nebraskans,” said Senator Fischer.

“The federal funding for added space and renovation of the Kearney Regional Airport terminal will provide increased convenience for passenger seating, boarding, and enhanced baggage services. These improvements combined with prior grant improvements for added parking and runway construction will ensure Kearney Regional Airport can meet the increased passenger demand for years to come,” said Michael W. Morgan, Kearney City Manager.

The funding was made possible by the CARES Act.
