More than $2 million DOT Grant Approved for Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport

Written by Press Release

September 21, 2018

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators John Boozman and Tom Cotton, along with U.S. Representative Steve Womack, announced that the Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport (XNA) will receive $2.7 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation to rehabilitate a taxiway in need of repair.

“Investments in airport infrastructure keep Arkansas connected to the national and global economy. Northwest Arkansas needs updated taxiways to ensure accessibility for travelers in addition to positioning the region for continued growth. These funds will improve safety at the airport while helping spur economic progress,” members said.

The grant will go toward reconstructing 1,300 feet of Taxiway B pavement which has reached the end of its life. This improvement will result in more efficient transit times and savings on fuel costs.

XNA services a region that is home to three Fortune 500 companies and continues to see impressive growth. Last year, the airport served more than 1.4 million passengers.
