MAYS LANDING – U.S. Congressman Frank A. LoBiondo, Chairman of the House Aviation Subcommittee, announced $3,223,440 in federal funding from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for reconstruction projects at the Atlantic City International Airport (ACY).
“In the past decade, nearly $55 million in federal funding has helped make ACY more attractive to both passengers as well as air carriers. As we seek to bring in additional service, improvements to facilities and operations are critical to ACY's efforts to be the logical option for individuals traveling to South Jersey," said LoBiondo. "Connecting to the nation’s transportation system will better position our region for economic growth and businesses looking to establish a presence in South Jersey. I will continue to be a vigorous advocate for investment and growth out of ACY."
In August LoBiondo announced federal funding for two additional local South Jersey airports including:

  • $4,749,212 for the Cape May County Airport; and,

  • $149,832 for the Hammonton municipal airport.


"Atlantic City International Airport is grateful to have the support of Congressman Frank LoBiondo who understands the importance of investment in aviation infrastructure for the safe and efficient operation of the airport,” said Jamie Fox, South Jersey Transportation Authority Chairman. “We are thankful for his continuous support of ACY."
The federal funding award is from the FAA’s Airport Improvement Program. Eligible projects include improving airport safety, capacity, security, and environmental concerns. Any professional services that are necessary for eligible projects, such as planning, surveying, and design, are eligible as is runway, taxiway, and apron pavement maintenance.
