Cape Girardeau Regional Airport Surpasses 10,000 Passenger Boardings in 2019

The Cape Girardeau Regional Airport has reached a milestone of over 10,000 boarding’s in this calendar year. This allows the airport to combine the federal funds with local tax revenue that voters voted to pass over the summer. Exceeding 10,000 enplanements will allow a total of $2.55 million in additional funds from the Federal Aviation Administration. By leveraging the FAA money in conjunction with the Capital Improvement tax funds will provide the necessary $6.8 million needed to construct a new control tower along with a terminal for the airport.
