BANGOR – A special day at the Bangor International Airport as the domestic terminal has been officially named after former director Peter D’errico.
Over two hundred people gathered inside for the ceremony at BIA this morning. It was an emotional moment, especially, when D’errico walked through the doors.
The Bangor city council recently voted to name it after him for his leadership and dedication to the airport. He served as director for 2 decades from 1970 to 1990.
Tony Caruso, the current airport director, said naming it after Peter reminds everyone that walks through the door what he did.
“A lot of what you see today is because of Peter. He was the Dow use re-plan coordinator, so he really spearheaded the change from a military air field to civilian.” said Caruso
D’errico also served on the Bangor City Council.
Bangor Mayor Sean Faircloth one of a few who spoke at the ceremony.
“Bangor would not be the city it is now without the infrastructure work that he led. That for the big stuff, that for the big positive changes, that make places better its decisions and years and decades of leadership, like what Peter D’errico did has offered and that really make the changes that make our life very better.” added Faircloth.
The airport has been undergoing renovations..such as adding a new ticket-counter, ground transportation, escalator upgrades.
