Some question why other names weren’t considered

When U.S. Sen. John McCain flies back to Washington, as he’s announced he intends to do in January, he may pass through an airport terminal that bears his own name.

The Phoenix City Council unanimously voted to name Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport’s Terminal 3 after the 30-year member of the U.S. Senate at a special meeting Wednesday.

The name change takes effect immediately but signage for the John S. McCain III Terminal 3, which will cost $50,000-$60,000, isn’t expected for 8-10 weeks, according to city staff.

McCain said on Twitter and in a statement he was “deeply humbled” by the honor.
