People flying in and out of the Pitt-Greenville airport may see some new improvements in the future.
North Carolina Senator Kay Hagan says the airport will receive nearly $800,000 from a federal aviation grant to improve its terminal.
Renovations will include an upgraded security system and installation of a second-floor lobby for airline passengers.
Airport manager Jim Turcotte says after 35 years he is retiring and this was his last project.
Airport administrator Jerry Vickers says the improvements should make flying out of the airport more comfortable.
Renovations are expected to begin by late August and be completed within the next two years.
