Orlando, Dulles airports set to receive nearly $100 million in federal funds

Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia will receive nearly $50 million in federal grants to build a new concourse.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Airports in Orlando, Fla., and Washington are among 85 airports nationwide that will share nearly $1 billion in transportation grants from the FAA, according to the Associated Press. The money is slated for terminal expansions and upgrades.

Orlando International Airport will receive $50 million, while Washington Dulles International Airport will receive $49.6 million to build a new concourse, the AP says. The grants are part of the $5 billion approved for airport projects as part of last year’s federal infrastructure bill.

The goal is to meet traveler demand and improve efficiency and safety at the nation’s airports. Travelers have been frustrated by flight delays and cancellations in recent months as air travel has increased.
