(Newser) – Little Rock is paying tribute to the Clintons by renaming the city airport in their honor, reports the Arkansas News. Once the FAA signs off on the switch, the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport will be in business. Airport receptionists already have begun using the new name, notes the AP. The official airport designation will remain LIT.

"We are grateful for this honor and for all that the people of Arkansas have done for us," said the Clintons in a statement. "And we look forward to many happy landings at the airport in the years ahead." (Read more Bill Clinton stories.)
