How to Find Cheap Air Travel to/from North Carolina
North Carolina might not have the most major airports in the country, but there are a few important regional airports within the state. They are listed here in descending order, starting with the busiest.
Charlotte Douglas International Airport (airport code CLT) is the largest airport serving the state of North Carolina, and saw nearly 15 million people come through in 2006. It is the 30th busiest commercial airport in the world, and is the largest hub for US Airways for both domestic and international flights. All the airlines serving Charlotte Douglas airport are listed here.
Raleigh-Durham International Airport (airport code RDU) is North Carolina’s second busiest airport, serving just under 5 million passengers in 2006. The airport itself actually sits nine miles outside the town of Morrisville, but it is roughly halfway between the cities of Raleigh and Durham – hence the airport’s name. No airline uses Raleigh-Durham as a hub currently, although American Airlines used to. A full list of airlines serving Raleigh-Durham is here. Although this is technically an international airport, it receives very few incoming international flights, so when an international flight arrives there can sometimes be long waits in customs.
Piedmont Triad International Airport (airport code GSO) is North Carolina’s third-busiest airport, having served just over 1 million passengers in 2006. The airport is just outside of the city of Greensboro, and a complete list of airlines serving Greensboro is here.
