Officials in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, are considering selling the naming rights to Pittsburgh International Airport in a possible effort to raise money for the county-owned airport. According to the FAA, as the sponsoring organization the county is permitted to do so, but renaming the airport will require the additional approval of the independent Allegheny County Airport Authority, which has operated the facility since 1999. Other proposals call for selling the naming rights for individual airport buildings.
