Funding will help improve and reconstruct terminal building

Airport Infrastructure Grant comes from infrastructure law funding from previous fiscal years

Additionally, Allegheny County Airport to receive $851,000 to rehabilitate taxiway

Washington, D.C. - Today, U.S. Senators Bob Casey (D-PA) and John Fetterman (D-PA) and U.S. Representatives Chris Deluzio (D-PA-17) and Summer Lee (D-PA-12) announced that Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) has received $20,608,374 from the infrastructure law for the ongoing terminal improvement project. In addition, Allegheny County Airport (AGC) has received $851,000 for taxiway rehabilitation. This Airport Infrastructure Grant funding was created by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and has been allocated to support critical airport development projects.

“As Southwestern Pennsylvania’s airports grow to serve this vibrant region, it’s critical that we improve the passenger experience, make our airports more efficient, and help keep passengers and workers safe,” said Senator Casey. “This investment from the infrastructure law will help strengthen Southwestern Pennsylvania’s economy and keep our region and our Commonwealth moving.”

“PIT has been tirelessly working to transform the airport into a world-class facility, and this funding will go a long way in supporting their effort. Any investment in the commonwealth is good news, and this project will stimulate our tourism economy and improve the travel experience for everyone flying into PIT and AGC,” said Senator Fetterman.  

“I am thrilled that Pittsburgh International Airport is locking in more than $20 million to improve and update the terminal,” said Congressman Deluzio. “We know that our airport is not only a critical portal in and out of our community—but also a huge job creator. I am excited to see how this next phase of Infrastructure Law investments helps continue creating good, solid jobs for the construction, and ongoing work, at our airport.”

“Securing this funding is a major step forward in our commitment to providing a safe and efficient travel experience for all passengers. The reconstruction of the terminal will not only streamline the movement of passengers and baggage but also significantly enhance energy efficiency and modernize aging infrastructure. This investment will ensure that our airports meet the highest standards of comfort and functionality, benefitting everyone who passes through our gates,” said Congresswoman Lee.

The funding for Pittsburgh International Airport will support terminal building reconstruction to allow for more efficient movement of passengers and baggage, increase energy efficiencies, and replace aging infrastructure including the gate seating areas at 30 gates. The funding for Allegheny County Airport will support ongoing projects to improve airport taxiways.

Since the infrastructure law was passed, millions of dollars have been allocated to PIT. In February 2024, Casey, Fetterman, Deluzio and Lee announced $5.3 million in new infrastructure funding to fund a component of the 700,000 square foot landslide terminal construction.

PIT has received a total of $123,706,728 since the start of 2021. Allegheny County Airport has received $12,384,997 during the same period.
