ONEONTA, N.Y. – More than $2.2 million in federal funding has been awarded to airports in the 19th congressional district, including the Albert S. Nader Regional Airport in Oneonta.
“Upstate New York’s airports are critical economic drivers for rural areas, and these facilities play a key role in our communities’ pandemic response. The funding announced today will help to support airport employees and our local economies,” said Congressman Antonio Delgado, who represents the 19th district.
The Oneonta airport received $70,000 for pavement projects.
“I thank Congressman Delgado for working with the FAA to assist Oneonta in acquiring the funding which will allow us to perform a comprehensive Airside Pavement Management Study including a condition survey and visual inspection of all airfield pavements at Oneonta’s Albert S. Nader airport. This study will assist us in maintaining a strong plan to ensure safe air travel to and from the City of Oneonta both now and in the future,” said Oneonta Mayor Gary Herzig.
The Sullivan County International Airport in Monticello was awarded just over $2 million, while the Columbia County Airport in Hudson received more than $71,000.
