The Elmira-Corning Regional Airport is the winner of a competitive grant to upgrade the airport and enhance safety there.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo visited a hangar near the airport Wednesday morning to hold a press conference where he announced the airport will receive $40 million in funding.
The state will award the airport a $40 million grant to fund projects that will improve operations, reduce environmental impact, and improve passenger service at airports across the state.
We’re told the funding will improve the terminal at the Elmira-Corning Regional Airport significantly.
