Manchester Airport to Change Name

In as little as 30 days, the airport in Manchester, New Hampshire, will change its name to Manchester-Boston Regional Airport.

The new name, which could go up in as little as 30 days, is hoped to boost business at the airport, which is predicting its first passenger decline in five years.

Dillon presented a research study saying that only 3 percent of travelers surveyed out west know where Manchester is, while 93 percent know where Boston is.

"This is an issue for the other side of the country," Dillon said.

Logan can sometimes be reached in an hour's drive from Manchester, if weather and traffic conditions are favorable.

(emphasis mine)  Read: During the summer, on an off-weekend for tourists, maybe.  But, it could happen. 

And the 50 bucks you save on the airfare would be totally worth it.  [/sarcasm]
