Sens. Menendez and Booker Announce $180,000 for Linden Airport

U.S. Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker (both D-N.J) announced the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has awarded $180,000 in federal funding to the City of Linden’s Airport. This grant will go towards the acquisition of new snow removal equipment with sweeper attachment, and to keep the airport serviceable during snow periods and aid in the efficiency and safety of operations.

“This important investment will help ensure harsh winter conditions don’t prevent the Linden Municipal Airport from serving as a vital gateway to the Tri-state region,” said Sen. Menendez. “Our tourists and economy depend on reliable travel service, which is why I will continue fighting to preserve the safety and improve the efficiency of all of our state’s airports.”

“New Jersey experienced another tough winter and making sure that all of our state’s airports have the necessary equipment needed to continue to operate effectively is a top priority,” said Sen. Booker.  “I am committed to continue to work with the Department of Transportation to address the needs of all our airports across our state and ensure that federal funding is made available to support them.  Efficient and safe airports are key to growing our state’s economy.”
