Orlando International Airport Receives $5 Million FAA Grant
Orlando International is one of four Florida airports receiving nearly $20 million in grant money from the Federal Aviation Administration.
The FAA announced Orlando International Airport will received $5.2 million dollars of improvement grant money earmarked for a taxiway rehabilitation project.
In a statement, Florida US Senator Bill Nelson says the grant is critical to helping airports meet the demand of an ever-increasing number of travelers.
Over the past year, there’s been a five percent increase in traffic and more than 42 million passengers traveled through Orlando International.
Other airports in Florida receiving the grants: Key West International, Tampa International and Zephyrhills Municipal. The FAA announced grant awards to Daytona Beach International Airport and Space Coast Regional Airport earlier this month.
