The Wenatchee World reported federal financing will pay up to $27 million and the rest will come from the ports of Chelan and Douglas counties, which jointly own the airport.
The project will extend the 5,700-foot runway to 7,000 feet.
Port officials hope the expansion will attract a second airline to schedule regional flights. Alaska Airlines currently operates the only scheduled flights at Pangborn, daily service to Sea-Tac International Airport.
