KEARNEY – Kearney Regional Airport will receive $6.28 million in CARES Act grant funds via the Federal Aviation Administration.

The funds will be used for the expansion of the airport’s terminal building.

“It’s excellent,” said Airport Manager James Lynaugh. “For the airport, as far as expansion and growth for us, it’s excellent.”

The existing terminal building will be expanded by an additional 4,325 square feet to increase the airport’s capacity and better meet operational needs.

“Our current terminal, we’re doing a remodel, and then a little bit of an expansion onto the terminal now, which will include, for the most part, secured seating, expanded TSA checkpoint space, that type of thing,” said Lynaugh. “And, of course, the remodel of the remainder of the building.”
