The Federal Aviation Administration awarded about $4.4 million for improvement projects at Wichita’s Eisenhower National and Jabara airports.
The money will be used at Eisenhower to improve taxiway lighting and expand areas where aircraft are parked, loaded, refueled or boarded. The airport will also build a new taxiway and buy two rescue and firefighting vehicles.
Eisenhower National Airport opened three years ago to replace a terminal that was 61 years old.
Jabara airport will receive $471,214 to buy land for approaches.
