The Rhode Island Airport Corporation (RIAC) is updating the Master Plan for T.F. Green Airport as required by the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) guidance. This process will focus on defining feasible and flexible development plans to accommodate forecasted demand over a 20 year period. The FAA ties federal funding to availability of such plans by airports. No runway lengthening or realignment is under consideration.

The main objectives of this Master Plan are to:

  • ensure safe and operationally efficient facilities that meet FAA requirements;
  • develop feasible and flexible alternatives to meet forecasted demand; and
  • define compatible land uses surrounding the airport.


The Master Plan process is expected to be complete by the end of 2019.
