Wichita City Council members are expected to vote this week on whether to rename Mid-Continent Airport in honor of former U.S. president and Kansas native Dwight D. Eisenhower.

The Wichita Eagle reports the council is scheduled to vote Tuesday on changing the name to Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport.

Supporters say the change provides the airport with recognizable branding.

Opponents question whether Eisenhower's ties to Wichita and its aviation industry are enough to warrant the change.
