Nearly $24M In COVID Relief Funding Heading To Maryland Airports

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- Nearly $24 million in federal funding will be going to help airports in Maryland recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The funding will go toward enhanced cleaning and sanitization efforts and will help offset pandemic-related costs for personnel, operations and debt services.


BWI Airport will be getting the biggest chunk of the money, more than $21 million.

This is on top of more than $107 million awarded to Maryland airports last year.
