“Hillary and I are so honored to have Little Rock National Airport named in our honor,” said President Bill Clinton. “We are excited that the first phase of renovation is complete, and look forward to seeing all of the airport’s improvements in May.”

The LIttle Rock, Ark., airport is being renamed after Hillary and Bill Clinton, and locals are excited.
The new Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport in Little Rock, Ark., will hold a dedication ceremony May 3 featuring the former President and his wife and ex- Secretary of State — but there’s just one problem for the snazzy new airport.
“Locals are calling it the Hillbilly Airport,” one insider tells Confidenti@l. “And project managers certainly don’t want an airport named after our President called Hillbilly. In the South. How does that look to the world?”
