Airports see funding source in naming rights

Wichita Mid-Continent is the latest airport to consider selling terminal naming rights in an effort to raise money. The airport's advisory board voted last week to recommend building a new terminal, a project that would cost $160 million.

The funding source has already been determined, but selling the naming rights would "be a little extra to help us in these tough economic times," says Victor White, director of airports for Wichita Airport Authority.
