WASHINGTON — Maryland airports are set to receive over $100,000 in aid, as part of the CARES Act to give relief during the coronavirus pandemic.

U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine L. Chao announced that 18 of the state’s airports will get $107,731,471 in funding.

“This $10 billion in emergency resources will help fund the continued operations of our nation’s airports during this crisis and save workers’ jobs,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao.

Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport is among the state’s airports to get funding.

This funding will support continuing operations and replace lost revenue resulting from the sharp decline in passenger traffic and other airport business due to the COVID-19 public health emergency.

The funds are available for airport capital expenditures, airport operating expenses including payroll and utilities, and airport debt payments.
