Memphis International Airport receives $15M in FAA funding

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration awarded $14.8 million in Airport Terminal Program funding to Memphis International Airport.

The FAA on Monday, Feb. 27, announced $967 million in funding for almost 100 airports in the U.S., including Memphis. 

The funding is from one of three aviation programs created through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

The law provides $1 billion in competitive funds annually over five years to airports to expand terminal capacity, promote competition, increase energy efficiency and improve accessibility for passengers across the country.

“This funding will help us continue to reinvent Memphis International Airport by starting the modernization of the ticketing and baggage areas,” said Scott Brockman, Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority President and CEO.

This award funds a portion of Memphis’ Terminal Modernization program, which involves increasing the size of the terminal and renovating the ticketing and baggage areas, expanding the security checkpoint, implementing technological improvements to baggage and security, and seismic enhancements.

MSCAA also received a separate $1 million award that will help fund the construction of a new terminal at Charles W. Baker Airport in Millington.

“It will also benefit our general aviation operations by helping to fund the construction of a new terminal at Charles W. Baker Airport,” Brockman said.

“We are grateful to the FAA for this award, and we thank all of our members of Congress for their ongoing support of MEM, its passengers and its employees.”
