WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) today announced a $26,114,094 grant through the U.S. Department of Transportation that will help fund a new terminal at New Orleans’ Louis Armstrong International Airport. Efforts are under way to update and improve the airport.

“This money will help New Orleans’ Louis Armstrong International Airport move forward to meet the demands of tourists as well as residents,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “As Louisiana’s tourism industry continues to grow, it is essential that we have the infrastructure in place to accommodate the increased number of visitors to our state.  We also need to help residents get to destinations across the globe.”

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, the total amount of the grant is $26,114,094.  These funds are to be used to help construct the new terminal’s apron.  This will fund the final phase of the apron construction.  The apron is the area of concrete in between the runway and the physical terminal.
