You can now call Louisville’s airport “The Greatest.”
This afternoon the Louisville Airport Authority announced the city’s airport, formerly known as Standiford Field, will now be known as Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport. The three-digit code will remain SDF; Alice International Airport in Texas had first dibs on the the ALI code.
The three-time Heavyweight Champion now has a street and an airport that bears his name. Frankly, this Louisvillian wouldn’t mind if more things were named after the Louisville Lip. I hear there’s a football stadium that needs a new name.
While I think of more places that could use Ali’s name, enjoy this YouTube rabbit hole of The Greatest.
