Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) in the US has received federal funding for the implementation of safety upgrades at the facility.
Under the $15m Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) fund, BWI will upgrade its aircraft parking apron between Concourses C and D to allow efficient operations of larger aircraft.
The project will also include construction of a new eco-friendly de-icing fluid collection system and new communications and utility systems.
The FAA's airport improvement programme funds and BWI Airport have provided the remaining amount for the total $41m project.
The $15m fund, part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grant, is one of the largest awarded by the FAA.
