Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport renames Terminal 3 for John McCain, opens new concourse

Brandishing a pair of oversize scissors, Phoenix Mayor Thelda Williams smiled as she waited for the cue.

Then she cut the ceremonial ribbon to allow a jubilant crowd to see the renovated south concourse in the newly renamed John McCain III Terminal at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. 

Right behind the mayor, Cindy McCain took in the scene at Terminal 3, which now bears the name of her late husband, Sen. John McCain.

“It’s very bittersweet, obviously. I wish he were here. He would have loved this more than anything. He would have loved the aviators up there,” Cindy McCain said with a small smile, referring to the 25-foot by 9-foot art installation created by artist Donald Lipski.
