Petition to rename Edinburgh Airport after local lad Sir Sean Connery

A campaign has started to have Edinburgh Airport named after Sir Sean Connery.

Sir Sean – the original James Bond – died aged 90 last week.

He introduced the cinema world to 007 in the 1962 film Dr No.


The Edinburgh born actor died at his Bahamas home with his wife Micheline by his side.

She later revealed the Hollywood star had been suffering from dementia.

A petition has been started asking airport owner Global Infrastructure Partners to consider the name change.

It reads:

“Liverpool has John Lennon airport; Belfast has George Best airport and, with the death of one of her most famous sons, Edinburgh should have a Sir Sean Connery airport.”
