Why We Want to Rename the Airport

  • Print

 The reasons we want the Wichita airport named for Eisenhower:

1) President Eisenhower's accomplishments are world renouned and he deserves the honor.

2) The name "Mid-Continent" is a lack-lustre old hand-me-down from Kansas City. The changed their name and we took their old one, derived from an old airline that merged with Braniff in the 60s. It is not a memorable name and tough to brand.

3) We are building a new, exceptional airport. It needs an exceptional name to reflect the quality of our city!

4) Large companied have said they have experienced difficulty in recruiting employees to Wichita. the name "Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower airport would indicate we are not a little cowtown, we are a cosmopolitan city with much to offer.


Please sign the petition on this website and then call 268-4331and leave a message for the mayor and council that you support the idea. Five minutes of your time to do both, could mean great changes for Wichita. We are thrilled to announce we have received Senator Dole's support in this effort!


Thank you!
