Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport
Post World War II
The following decade saw regular flights to Nassau, a new passenger terminal, and a major relaunch, when the airport was officially given its current title, per the suggestions of then Chamber of Commerce member Edgar "Buddy" Galvin who was influential in re-naming it as the Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport. By 1970, passenger levels had exceeded one million per annum, rising steadily over the years and topping ten million in the mid-1990s.
