Transport Canada announced Sunday that the J.A. Douglas McCurdy Sydney Airport will receive $363,000 this year as part of a federal fund for capital projects at airports.
A press release says the money will go towards purchasing a runway condition reporting system, as well as replacing an emergency power system.
The Sydney airport is one of 26 airports across the country that will receive money for safety-related improvement projects.
Ottawa plans to spend $25.9 million on the projects in 2012-13.
