Arkansas Names Airport After Bill and Hillary Clinton

Two of Little Rock, Arkansas’ most well known citizens, Bill and Hillary Clinton, are about to get the local airport renamed in their honor.

The seven-person Little Rock Municipal Airport Commission made the announcement Tuesday after unanimously voting in favor of the name change due to the former President and current Secretary of State’s numerous accomplishments.

The Little Rock National Airport is the largest commercial service airport in the state, serving an estimated 2.2 million people each year.

“The Clintons continue to have a major impact on our state and our local economy, and we believe renaming our airport in their honor is a fitting way to recognize their service and their position in Arkansas and our nation’s history,” said Commission Chairman Jim Dailey in a news release.
