HONOLULU (AP) - The Honolulu International Airport has been renamed in honor of the late Sen. Daniel K. Inouye.

KHON-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2oPFK9N) that Daniel K. Inouye International Airport now appears on the official website of Hawaii’s busiest airport. A Hawaii Department of Transportation representative says the Federal Aviation Administration officially made the name change on Thursday.

The change was approved with a resolution that passed last year.

Inouye served in the U.S. Senate from 1963 until his death in 2012.

He had helped secure funds every year to maintain and develop the Honolulu airport.

The name change comes as the airport undergoes a major modernization project that includes a consolidated rental car facility, the widening of taxi lines and other improvements.
