What inspired the CMH name


Driven by a pursuit to accomplish the seemingly impossible, Ohio native John Glenn became the first American to orbit the Earth in 1962. After decades of service as a U.S. senator, at the age of 77 he became the oldest person to enter space. Glenn's pioneering spirit inspired a renaming of Port Columbus International Airport in 2016 to John Glenn Columbus International Airport.
