Governor Cuomo Announces $58 Million Transformation of Elmira Corning Regional Airport
Released by Governor Cuomo’s Press Office

Big Flats - Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today awarded $40 million to Elmira Corning Regional Airport to activate the airport's $58 million transformation. The new airport is a welcoming front door to the Southern Tier with expanded capacity for passenger growth, an improved passenger experience, and enhanced security. The main pillars of the design include increasing the airport's passenger space by 25 percent including a new interior courtyard, adding two new jet bridges to handle larger aircraft coming to the airport, an additional baggage claim belt, 300 new parking spaces, a new 3,000 square foot bar and restaurant in the terminal's passenger waiting area, and state-of-the-art passenger amenities.

“From the Regional Economic Development Councils to the Upstate Revitalization Initiative, we are leveraging the Southern Tier's assets to generate growth from the ground up, and by overhauling the Elmira Corning Regional Airport, we are building on our progress," Governor Cuomo said. "This funding will help increase passenger capacity, enhance security and transform this aging airport into a world-class aviation gateway. Through this competition, we are placing the Southern Tier on the cutting edge of transportation infrastructure, and continuing to attract private investment, generate jobs and create economic opportunity for generations to come."
