Regina Airport to Receive Federal Relief Funding
May 11, 2021
Today James Bogusz, CEO of the Regina Airport Authority, appreciated the federal government’s announcement for airport financial support. It is anticipated that the Regina Airport Authority will receive approximately $2.6 million in grant funding as part of the announced Airport Relief Fund.
“With the substantial financial losses incurred in 2020 and the beginning of 2021, we are pleased that some funding has been announced to help cover a portion of our core operating costs,” said Bogusz. “We look forward to working with the federal government on future programs of this nature as we await the return of more regular passenger volumes.”
The Regina Airport Authority will also be applying to the federal government’s Airport Critical Infrastructure Program for funding to support the upcoming overlay project for runway 13-31, which is the airport’s main runway.
“With the summer travel season fast approaching, we look forward to assisting all levels of government with economic recovery in the travel and tourism sector.” said Bogusz.
