Cloud Helps Secure $8,200,000 Grant for Corpus Christi Airport

Washington, D.C.—Today, Corpus Christi International Airport (CCIA) was awarded an $8,200,000 air service development grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). 

In March of 2022, Congressman Michael Cloud (TX-27) sent a letter to the Federal Aviation Administration in support of CCIA’s funding request to install a central in-line baggage handling system that will increase terminal capacity and efficiency, upgrade aging infrastructure, repurpose passenger spaces inside the terminal, and lay the critical groundwork to facilitate future growth and expansion of the airport.

This project will also create countless future jobs by providing a critical new space for additional airlines and enhanced air service for the Coastal Bend region.

“I was happy to support the Corpus Christi International Airport’s application and thrilled to see the Department of Transportation award this grant request,” Congressman Cloud said. “This funding allows Corpus Christi International Airport to enhance its terminal capacity and upgrade its infrastructure to better serve those traveling to and from the Coastal Bend. I’m eager to see the opportunities this expansion will bring.”
