Wichita Airport Unveils New Logo
The new logo contains a dominant "W" for Wichita and a smaller "E" for Eisenhower.
The Wichita City Council approved the name change last year.
The airport name pays tribute to President Dwight D. Eisenhower. His granddaughter Mary Eisenhower was in Wichita for today's unveiling. "My grandfather loved aviation and the great state of Kansas, of course," Mary Eisenhower said. "I don't think it could get any better for him than this right now."
Some 20 highway signs are already being switched out to reflect the name change.
"You'll see the new name reflected in everything from highway signage, to marketing materials, and the social media channels," said airport director Victor White.
This is the third name in Wichita airport history. It was first known as Wichita Municipal Airport before being renamed Wichita Mid-Continent Airport in 1973.
