SunRail won the approval of the Federal Transit Administration to link the train to the Orlando International Airport, the Orlando Business Journal reports. 

The Orlando Sentinel reports the move would cost about $225 million, and the FTA could "make as much as $75 million available in grant money, with the remainder coming from state and local sources." 

SunRail still has to extend into Osceola County, which it is expected to complete by 2017. SunRail's connection to the airport could happen closer to 2020.
