    Very glad to see growth by any organization during these challenging times, especially by an airport ~~ small or large! Today's traveler's are loaded with so much information, one could get very stressed out in making the choice to fly, especially with media's explortation of any and all issues faced by these airports, such as TSA, FAA, serious security breach, and on and on! Regarding the PItt-Greenville Airport, and the continuous pressure to stay close to my customers' to best meet their requirements, I have always chosen to fly in/out of PGV airport. Why? It's very clear to see the efforts undertaken there to constantly meet all security requirements, plus, their focus on each and every customer. It's tough enough to travel as it is, however, I see the employees pour as much effort as humanly possible to make the customers trip enjoyable and stress-free!. That's a real bonus since other airports aren't that focus. Hats off to PGV management and employees~They make it happen!
