Lynchburg Regional Airport will get nearly $6.5 million.

Danville Regional Airport and Virginia Tech’s airport are expected to get nearly $1.5 million each.

”As people continue to use the air service, we’re going to continue to get more and that is just good for economic development and allowing people to get out-and-about and reconnect with family,” said Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport Marketing Director, Brad Boettcher.

Since the announcement was made on Wednesday, the airport hopes to have a better idea of where the money will go next week.
