Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton Lend Their Names To Arkansas Airport (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Following the likes of Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy, Bill and Hillary Clinton will have an airport named after them.

The Little Rock Municipal Airport Commission voted unanimously to rename Little Rock National Airport "Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport," pending approval from the FAA, reports Arkansas News.

"Hillary and I are humbled by the Little Rock Airport Commission’s decision this morning,” former President Bill Clinton said in a statement. “We are grateful for this honor and for all that the people of Arkansas have done for us. And we look forward to many happy landings at the airport in the years ahead.”

According to the Los Angeles Times, Clinton's presidential library and the economic development it inspired in downtown Little Rock was noted in the decision. The Clinton Library is Arkansas' top attraction for out-of-state visitors.

The airport's long standing Adams Field moniker will not change when referring to the airport's runways and air traffic, according to Today's THV, a local CBS affiliate.
