Federal Funding for Aroostook County Airports
Four airports in Aroostook County will receive a share of federal funding to sustain operations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Federal Aviation Administration said that the Presque Isle International Airport will receive $1 million.
Houlton International Airport will receive $30,000 and Caribou Municipal Airport and Northern Aroostook Regional Airport in Frenchville will receive $20,000 each.
The emergency funding comes at a time when airports across the country are facing decreases in passengers related to stay-at-home orders and the reigning in of travel.
