Airport to Receive $21 Million in COVID-19 Relief Funds.

 

Air travel has been down by over 90% in recent weeks, and revenue has decreased at airports across the country. As such, Daytona Beach International Airport (DBIA) is in line to receive $21 Million in economic stimulus funds from the federal stimulus package, known as the CARES Act.

 

The stimulus package is not only geared to help out airports across the country, but also has provided stimulus checks to citizens, and financial aid for private businesses that have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Last week, Daytona Beach International Airport learned that it will receive its share of the stimulus (a total of $21, 053,492) from the Federal Aviation Administration. The money in the package is to help keep airports open, in operation, financially able to continue serving the traveling public, and keeping aviation and airport workers employed.

 

Tuesday morning, Volusia County Council, the governing body of the airport, unanimously authorized County Manager, George Recktenwald, and County Chair, Ed Kelly, to sign documents and agreements related to the stimulus package.
