The Federal Government of Nigeria has earmarked Funtua Airstrip as one the projects to be undertaken by the 2024 federal budget

Airstrip is like a mini airport designed for takeoff and landing of aircraft. An airstrip caters primarily for smaller aircraft and it usually has a single, shorter runway compared to an airport which has the full complement of facilities for commercial operation.

The Aviation ministry has specifically  plans to spend N3.2bn for the development of various airstrips in Funtua, Kaduna; Umuahia, Abia and others.

According to the details of the 2024 budget of the ministry presented by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the ministry would also rehabilitate the existing Osubi Airstrip in Delta State with N2bn while N375m was allocated for rehabilitation of other airstrips.
