Santa Barbara Airport Names New Terminal After Community Leader

Posted on Monday, September 16, 2013 4:09pm


There’s a big party tonight at Santa Barbara’s Airport.

The Airport is celebrating the naming of its new terminal after a longtime community leader, John Rickard.

Rickard was Mayor of Santa Barbara, a two time “El Presidente” heading the community’s Old Spanish Days celebration, and was well known for his community involvement.

The decision to name the terminal after the late civic leader came as the result of a communitywide effort to come up with a worthy person to serve as the namesake for the new facility.
