Windsor Airport is getting a much needed update to parts of its airfield infrastructure thanks to the federal government.

Minister of Transport Lisa Raitt and Essex MP Jeff Watson announced today that the federal government is making investments to enhance safety at the airport.

Funding will pay for the replacement of airfield guidance signs and wind direction indicators. Officials say the new equipment will ensure continued safe visibility for flight crews, passengers, employees, and medical evacuation operations.

Funding is provided through Transport Canada’s Airports Capital Assistance Program.
