Amarillo Area Airports, including Perry Lefors Field, to Receive $425K in Coronavirus Relief Funds


WACO – Several airports in the greater Amarillo area were awarded a number of federal grants totaling $425,000 to combat the spread of coronavirus, U.S. Senator John Cornyn announced today. The funding comes through the Coronavirus Relief and Response Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act of 2020, which Senator Cornyn voted in favor of last December.

“More and more Texans are getting vaccinated every day and we’ve seen an uptick in air travel as a result,” Sen. Cornyn said. “I am glad to have helped deliver this funding that will improve the health and safety of transportation workers and travelers in the greater Amarillo area.”
