Airport name change weighed

Okaloosa County Airports Director Sunil Harman will ask commissioners on Tuesday to change the name of Northwest Florida Regional Airport to the Destin-Ft. Walton Beach International Airport. The proposal also calls for renaming the Destin Airport the Destin Executive Airport. Officials began considering the changes after a study showed that passengers saw the Northwest Florida Regional name as too vague, generic and wordy. (Source: Northwest Florida Daily News, 01/19/15)
