WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today announced a $5.5 million grant awarded for Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport in Wichita to reconstruct the airport apron – the area of the tarmac where aircraft are parked, refueled, loaded and boarded. This funding was awarded through the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Airport Improvement Program (AIP).
“This grant will help Eisenhower airport to update and improve the area surrounding the terminal, increasing the airport’s efficiency,” said Sen. Moran. “While I continue to monitor the global impact of COVID-19 on air travel, this grant will provide vital improvements to the largest airport in the state, ensuring safe and efficient travel to and from Wichita once this crisis has passed.”
