Runway Extension Project

Since the finding of No Significant Impact/Record of Decision (FONSI/ROD) issued by the FAA in December 2005, the Erie Regional Airport Authority (ERAA) has been moving forward with a 1,900 foot extension to runway 6/24. The extension will allow your Airport to accommodate larger passenger and cargo aircraft, allow existing aircraft to fly longer distances with heavier loads, decrease weather related delays and cancellations, and to comply with Federal Aviation Administration safety regulations. The improved aviation capacity and safety enhancements at the Airport will contribute significantly to the region's economy by removing a hindrance to existing corporate expansion and will foster entrepreneurial business opportunities previously hampered by inadequate airport capacity. Please visit the project website for more detailed information about this regions most important economic development project.
