Fairhope Airport Receives Grant

Thanks to the continued hard work of dedicated employees and volunteers on the Fairhope Airport Authority Board, the H. L. Callahan airport will get $3.3 million in grants to add a new taxiway and taxiway access.

This will add value and benefit to the other leases the City uses to generate income and go a long way to aid in recruiting new commercial tenants such as those supplying parts and expertise to Airbus in Mobile.

The grants are funded through the Airport and Airway Trust Fund and federal appropriations awarded by the Department of Transportation through the Federal Aviation Administration.
