The Massachusetts Port Authority last week approved its expected acquisition of the Worcester Regional Airport from the city of Worcester.

The authority, which operates Boston’s Logan International Airport along with other regional airports, will pay the city $15.5 million for the facility. The full price is $17 million as the city will keep some land that was considered part of the airport. MassPort has been operating the Worcester facility since January 2000. The deal will close July 1.
