Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport in the US has secured four grants from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to enhance its infrastructure.
Awarded under FAA’s airport improvement programme’s (AIP) voluntary airport low emission (VALE) scheme, the grants have a combined value of $40m.
Of the grants, a sum of $20m will be used to construct and expand the aircraft apron, south of Terminal D.
Around $9m will be used for an ongoing project to rehabilitate one of the airport's arrival runways, 18R/36L.
DFW Airport will utilise nearly $8m of the grant to improve its Taxiway Y, enabling larger aircraft to cross between the west side of the airfield and the east.
It will also use $3m to equip Terminal B with environmentally friendly, pre-conditioned air units for cooling jet boarding bridges.
