Aviation is the superhighway of global commerce and communication, and airports are its onramps.

With 3.8 billion travelers in 2022, aviation is a catalyst for economic growth, enabling connectivity with global markets and the rapid movement of goods and people. With demand for travel on the rise and the desire for a seamless passenger experience, increased capacity and achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, visions of the airport of the future are becoming reality with the help of private and federal funding.

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act provides funding of $25 bn over the next five years for modernizing airport infrastructure. These projects include improving energy efficiency and reducing dependence on the grid, increased capacity and enhanced safety and replacing aging infrastructure with new terminals, runways, concourses, nearby hotels and other related airport infrastructure facilities.
