New Record Set At Pitt-Greenville Airport

The numbers are really taking off at the Pitt-Greenville Airport. The airport says in 2010 they set a new all-time record for passenger traffic.

PGV served 63,702 departures and 63,978 arrivals, an increase of just under 5% over last year. The previous record was set in 2009 which saw an 11% growth rate from the year before.

Airport director Jerry Vickers attributes the growth to competitive fares and that the airport offers comfort and convenience that's not available at the larger airports.

Last month the airport opened an expanded renovated terminal. The new facilities includes an upstairs departure area, expanded security lanes, two gates instead of one and a new waiting room.

    Andy that is because the Govenor does not provide management for a service that makes money. The Govenor provides a service that takes money.

    The airport additions are beautiful. Now get some new airlines in here. If you have time to spare, fly US Air!

    Way to go PGV! Direct flights to big cities such as Philly and NYC will help the local economy by having ECU professors do big bucks consulting gigs and be home for dinner.
