Tester Comes Up Big for Missoula Airport

Senator Delivers $8.7 Million Grant for New Airport Terminal

(U.S. Senate) - The Missoula International Airport will soon be getting a major upgrade, thanks to the efforts of U.S. Senator Jon Tester.

Tester secured a grant today worth $8.7 million from the Department of Transportation to demolish the existing terminal and construct a new airport terminal building. He was the only member of Montana's congressional delegation to vote for the funding agreement that made the grant possible.

"Investments in air travel in and out of Missoula are critically important to Western Montana," Tester said. "This grant will expand tourism, provide a big boost to the economy and make it easier for Montanans to stay connected with their friends and families."

"As our airport has continued to grow, it has become even more important to invest in and expand our facilities to meet the needs of the Missoula community," said Missoula International Airport Director Cris Jensen. "We're incredibly grateful to Senator Tester for helping us secure this funding and for his continual work on behalf of air travel in Montana."

Tester's #ConnectMT initiative has paid off big for Montana's airports. The Senator has brought home over $20 million in grants to renovate and expand runways, install safety equipment, and improve air travel across the state during the last month alone, including an additional $4.6 million to expand the terminal building at Helena Regional Airport.
