ACI-NA CEO: 'American airports face over USD128bn critical infrastructure needs'

18 September, 2019

Airports Council International-North America (ACI-NA) president and CEO Kevin M Burke advocated (16-Sep-2019) for airport infrastructure improvements for North American airports despite growth. Mr Burke stated: "Over the next few years, American airports face over USD128 billion in critical infrastructure needs. This reflects a more than 28% increase since 2017, and an 80% increase since 2013". Mr Burke attributed this to primary infrastructure funding mechanism not being "updated in nearly two decades". [more - original PR]
