The Salina Municipal Airport will be renamed the Salina Regional Airport.

The city's airport authority unanimously approved the name change on Wednesday. It will become effective in 30 days.

Tim Rogers, executive director of the Salina airport, says the new name more accurately reflects the role the airport has in the regional economy.

Rogers said airport staff would start changing logos on letterheads, newsletters and publications as soon as possible.

Signs will be changed when they are scheduled for maintenance.

The airport authority also was notified Tuesday it will receive a $475,182 grant to update the airport's master plan, which will determine the airport's planning for the next 20 years.
