Phoenix renames airport terminal after McCain

Published on : Thursday, December 21, 2017

MACAfter unanimous voting the Phoenix City Council announced that a terminal in the city’s airport will be named after John Mc Cain.

 

 

As per the local media Mayor Greg Stanton had earlier proposed of designating the Terminal 3 in Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in McCain’s honor.

 

 

Last month the council voted to support the measure and the city’s Heritage Commission provided approval on Monday.

 

 

Mc Cain said in a statement  that he rarely felt very honored and yet unworthy at the same time.

 

 

McCain’s daughter, Meghan McCain was thankful to the city council.She was deeply touched that the terminal at the sky harbor will be named after his father.

 

 

In July it was found that McCain was diagnosed with glioblastoma which is an aggressive form of brain cancer and he underwent treatment post that.

 

 

He came back to Arizona for physical therapy and rehabilitation and will be travelling to January  to Washington.

 

 

Currently the Terminal 3 is undergoing a $590 million remodeling project, which is expected to be finished by 2020.
