Landing in Liszt

Posted at 4:36 PM on February 16, 2011 by Rex Levang

This is Liszt's 200th birthday year--and here's news that Hungary's main airport may soon be renamed in his honor.

I hadn't been aware of airports named in honor of classical musicians, but a little online digging reveals that they do exist, and mostly in Central Europe. Travelers in the US may fly into O'Hare and Kennedy, but over there you can fly into Chopin, Mozart, and Janacek.
