Tourist Hucksters Want To Change Airport’s Name

Carmel-Fresno Airport

Carmel-Fresno Airport has a nice sound, right? Is this the same group that wanted to change the name of the Stockton airport to San Francisco Stockton Regional Airport.

Should we all just start tacking “Carmel” to everything to increase it’s value to the less than intelligent tourists?

A Carmel tourism group has proposed changing the name of the Monterey Regional Airport — as it’s currently known — to the Carmel-Monterey Regional Airport, according to a proposal to the airport district’s board of directors this week.
Representatives for the group, Visit Carmel, which is funded by hotel and restaurant customers, showed Monterey Peninsula Airport District’s five directors Wednesday a presentation outlining why it believes including “Carmel” in the name would benefit the airport and the city.
