McAllen Miller International Airport in the US is to receive more than $6.2m for renovating infrastructure.

The funding awarded by the US Department of Transportation will be used to expand the terminal, extend the runway and repair damage caused by Hurricane Dolly.

The extension of the runway will help the airport accommodate larger aircraft.
