Burlington IAP (ANG)
Burlington International Airport is Vermont's only international airport supporting commercial flights as well as private and charter flights. Although Burlington isn't a hub, it's at the outer end of a spoke, and the airport has made arrangements to park about 11 aircraft overnight here. Burlington is one of seven facilities that service Pratt & Whitney general aviation turbine engines in the United States. The engines power corporate and private jets, corporate helicopters and some commuter airplanes. Commercial and military aircraft engines are serviced elsewhere.
In March 2000 House of Representatives passed legislation Wednesday that doubled federal funding for Burlington International Airport from $ 1.5 million to nearly $ 3 million a year for the next three years. The airport used the money to speed up its acquisition of surrounding property for the development of an airplane maintenance facility for Jet Blue, the new low-cost carrier that is coming to Burlington later in 2000.
In its 2005 BRAC Recommendations, DoD recommended to realign Atlantic City International Airport AGS, NJ. The 177th Fighter Wing's F-16s would be distributed to the 158th Fighter Wing, Burlington International Airport AGS, VT (three aircraft), and retire (12 aircraft).
