CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — One of Wyoming's busiest airports will get more than $2.5 million for renovations.

The state loan will enable Casper/Natrona County International Airport to expand its holding gate and renovate the interior with new furniture, bathrooms and fixtures.

Plans also call for better water and sewer systems.

Airport director Glenn Januska says more space could mean more business. Januska says the airport has seen a 5% increase in passengers since last year.

The money comes from Wyoming's Aeronautics Loan Program. The Casper Star-Tribune reports the 20-year loan carries a 5% interest rate.
