Albany International Airport has received nearly $1.6 million in federal funding for snow removal equipment and security improvements.

The Federal Aviation Administration funding was announced jointly by U.S. Sens. Charles E. Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, both D-N.Y., and U.S. Rep. Paul Tonko, D-Amsterdam.

About $1.1 million will be used to purchase two snow/sand trucks and one snow/sand loader to improve snow removal operations. The money will also be used to purchase a glycol recovery truck used during the collection and removal of de-icing fluids on the airport grounds.

Another $438,728 will go toward critical security enhancements to the airport’s terminal access controls system.

“Making sure our runways are clear for takeoff, especially during winter weather, is essential for the safety of our New York travelers,” Schumer said.
