Why Should I Consider Doing Business with Airport Authorities

Every day, millions of people travel across the world from one of the 5,000 public airports in the U.S. The Federal Aviation Administration awarded contracts worth over $22 billion in FY2019 alone, making the airport authorities some of the top government agencies seeking business from vendors. The FAA already released its budget proposal for FY2023 with a $23.6 billion requested budget, $3 billion of which is requested for facilities and equipment improvements. This budget is only for the FAA alone to disburse at its discretion; counties and local cities have also set their own budgets for their regional airports.

Considering the spending on procurement for airport facilities and equipment, the airport industry is one of the best to do business with. Here is how you can find these types of opportunities on Periscope S2G and grow your business.
