Funding will make improvements to terminals in PHL

Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) is announcing that Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) will receive $24,000,000 in new funding from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. The funding is an award from the FY22 Airport Terminal Program, a new competitive grant program created by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. PHL can expect to receive additional funding from the infrastructure law in the coming years.

“Thanks to the infrastructure law, Philadelphia International Airport is able to make upgrades to every facet of the airport. This funding will help PHL make much-needed restroom upgrades, including using smart technology to increase sustainability, as well as increasing accessibility for nursing mothers and people with disabilities. Infrastructure investments both on the tarmac and inside the terminal are critical to ensuring PHL remains a world class airport that brings people, businesses and economic growth to Southeastern Pennsylvania for years to come,” said Senator Casey.

This funding will make improvements to PHL’s terminals, including restroom renovations. The program will provide additional restrooms, as well as rooms for nursing mothers, gender neutral restrooms, adult-assisted care restrooms and pet relief areas. The project will also install smart and touchless technology to enhance the airport’s sustainability. On top of this funding, the airport has received over $53,000,000 in federal investments since December 2021 from various federal laws.
