Through my role on the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue to advocate for transportation and infrastructure projects at MHT and beyond New Hampshire.”

“Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is already an industry-leading cargo facility, so this new partnership with Amazon Air is a welcome addition,” he said Manchester mayor Joyce Craig. “This project will provide more jobs for our residents and boost our local economy. Thank you to the entire airport team and project engineers, architects and contractors for your tireless efforts to make this project a reality.”

With this setup New Hampshire will allow that State Graniteand throughout northern New England to tap into this growing sector of the world economy.”
