The St. Cloud Regional Airport has been awarded nearly $1.1 million in federal funding in the CARES Act. The Federal Aviation Administration announced last week that 97 airports in Minnesota will receive bailout cash totaling $50 billion.
It was a good year at the St. Cloud Regional Airport last year, however ridership was down a bit. Airport Director Bill Towle says about 42,600 people used the commercial airlines at the airport in 2019 compared to about 43,700 the year before.
