Airport to receive federal funds for terminal

VERSAILLES—The Darke County Airport is one of two airports in Ohio that will receive federal funds from the Airport Terminal Program under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

The Darke County Airport in Versailles, will receive around $1.3 million to construct a new terminal building. Due to a change in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) obstruction evaluation height, the current terminal does not meet FAA standards.

Commissioner Matt Aultman said the board is grateful for the grant.

“We are very appreciative of the federal grant funds awarded to us,” he said. “It will help continue our modernization plans for the airport, and the services we can provide to attract people to our county for business, vacation, or attending one of our great festivals or events.”

Scott Naas, Darke County Airport Manager echoed his statement.

“We are very grateful for this grant,” he said. “The support continues to allow us to serve our community and business air travel to the highest level we can.”

Newark Heath Airport in Licking County will also receive federal funds. They will get over $2.3 million to build a new terminal.
