XNA Receives Over $4M in Federal Stimulus Funds


Northwest Arkansas National Airport (XNA), along with five other airports in the state, have been approved to receive over $4.5 million in federal stimulus money. In partnership with the Federal Aviation Administration, the US Department of Transportation will distribute the funds, which were approved through the Coronavirus Relief and Response Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act.

  • All federal legislators from Arkansas supported the act. “The air travel industry has experienced dramatic disruption and losses as a result of the coronavirus pandemic... national and regional airports connect our communities to commerce and economic activity, so it is important to provide them assistance so they continue to remain viable," they said. -Talk Business & Politics
