Sen. Brian Schatz announced Tuesday that Hawaii will received $15.3 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation to improve runway safety at the Lanai Airport.

“These funds for the Lanai Airport are an important investment in the local economy,” Sen. Schatz said. “The grant will help the Lanai Airport remain in compliance with federal regulations and ensure the safety of the tens of thousands of business travelers, tourists, and families traveling to and from the islands each year.”
