Jetport Thanks Senator Collins

 Portland, Maine – The Portland International Jetport (PWM) today thanks Senator Susan Collins for her support of airport infrastructure as Chair of the Transportation Subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee.

“Senator Collins has been a true champion for airports in Maine and the nation. The Jetport thanks Senator Collins for her leadership on the Senate Appropriations Committee which has led to a bipartisan supported appropriations bill. The bill will provide needed investment in our airport infrastructure to support growing passenger volumes, with an efficient connection to the global air transportation system” said Paul Bradbury, Airport Director. “Senator Collins has listened to our needs and the needs of airports in Maine, and has worked with her colleagues in the Senate to make it easier for airports to support capital improvements, while at the same time not penalizing passengers who travel through multiple airports on their journey” he continued.

On July 27th the Senate Appropriations Committee approved the Fiscal Year 2018 Department of Transportation spending measure. This measure included an increase in the federal cap on local Passenger Facility Charges to $8.50 for originating passengers only. The last time the PFC was increased was 17 years ago in 2000.
