RDU to lobby for more international flights
Posted February 15, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — The director of Raleigh-Durham International Airport said Friday that the airport plans to step up its recruitment of international flights.
Michael Landguth told Wake County commissioners that RDU had an $8 billion economic impact on the region in 2012 and wants to build on that by attracting more international flights, including destinations such as Paris and Frankfurt.
RDU has set aside about $500,000 in its budget for that effort, Landguth said.
The airport now has one daily flight to London.
