NEW TOUCH SCREEN: At airport.

Further details in the airport news release:

The Little Rock Municipal Airport Commission has unveiled its new logo that reflects the airport’s recent name change to Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport.

The new icon reinforces the Clinton name as it creates a interwoven bold initial “C” formed by two jet contrails that represent both President and Secretary Clinton to symbolize their unique partnership, “ said Shane Carter, Director of Public Affairs and Governmental Relations. “The forward movement of the icon also represents the airport’s dynamic approach to air travel, particularly with the current renovations underway.”

“We are excited to have a new logo that is representative of our new name and the progressiveness of Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport,” said Jim Dailey, chairman of the Little Rock Municipal Airport Commission. “We will begin to replace signage and various marketing materials with the new logo.”

Eric Rob & Isaac, the full-service advertising, marketing and public relations firm in Little Rock, designed the new logo for the airport.

The airport is currently undergoing construction of Phase 1 of the 2020 Vision Plan, which includes extensive upgrades to the ticketing lobby and baggage screening area, which will house a new, state-of-the-art in-line baggage handling system. The $67 million, initial improvements will be completed in February 2013.

A secondary, larger phase of the 2020 Vision Plan is planned to occur over the next several years to include construction of a new terminal commons, a new 16-gate concourse, new baggage claim area, international arrival facility, inbound roadway and parking improvements. Once all construction is completed, the airport is destined to become an international airport.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.

    The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has denied a new permit for the C&H Hog Farms' concentrated animal feeding operation near Mount Judea (Newton County). This is a big and somewhat surprising victory for critics who have viewed C&H's large-scale pig farm and the pig waste it generates as an existential threat to the Buffalo National River.
