WASHINGTON, D.C. –U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced today that Lafayette Regional Airport will receive $10 million from the Federal Aviation Administration to help fund the construction of a new terminal. This award will supplement an earlier $11.8 million grant that also provided funding for the new terminal.
“This grant is not only an investment for Lafayette’s airport; this is an investment for the regional economy,” said Sen. Kennedy. “The terminal construction project will improve the airport and promote more tourism and economic development for Acadiana.”
