The Federal Aviation Administration offered $13.97m for the apron development while the Transportation Security Administration provided $20m for the baggage screening system.

The new Maynard Holbrook Jackson Jr International terminal will have 12 gates to serve increasing passenger volumes, bringing the airport’s total number of gates to 40.
