Written by Maggie McNeary

The six members of the Arkansas delegation announced this month that over a dozen Arkansas airports would benefit from $2.7 million in grants from the Federal Aviation Administration, according to a news release.

The airports will use the money to “support facility upgrades and expansions,” a news release from Sen. John Boozman’s office said.

The individual airports are set to receive amounts varying from $72,000 to $297,000, according to the release.

Airports in Ash Flat, Benton, Berryville, Blytheville, Brinkley, Carlisle, Clarendon, Clarksville, DeWitt, Dumas, Manila, Melbourne, Piggott, Siloam Springs and Springdale will receive grant money, the release said.
