Some aerodrome renamings have been a total disaster. EMA became Nottingham, Derby, Leicester International, but natural forces have retained East Midlands Airport. Manston varies its label from time to time, but it is still at the west end of Kent, and various attempts to put London on the front of the official title of the capital’s six airports have only had limited success (and BTN does not use the prefix).
John Lennon Liverpool is a successful rebranding, as is George Best at Belfast.
We wish Wick, the most northerly scheduled airport on the UK mainland, the best of luck with its new title “Wick John O’Groats Airport”. It is about 20 miles south of what is a pretty bleak outpost, and another five to The Castle of Mey, a very popular residence of the late Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. Whilst the former RAF base can take an Airbus A320 and Boeing 737 it is never going to be that busy. www.hial.co.uk
