o... lots going on around the country... a lot on a.net wishing the airport would get this and this service. I would like RDU European and Caribbean service to mature to become sustainable.. so IMO, no new service announcement international is cool. Thoughts?
And lastly, saw in an article there is lots of interest in corporate hangars... hope to see some SAS size hangars in place.. and maybe a US5 airline hangar?
WIth companies like Epic Games, SAS, Lenovo, Red Hat, Citrix and others in RDU, there is a market for some of these corporate hangers. If the triangle gets Apple or Amazon to move in, then there is a good chance of more hangers going in. RDU is growing fine, and I think with the LHR/CDG flight raleigh is well established into Europe. The Caribbean flights are great as more US citizens gain their passports and travel on vacations to the beaches.
Sorry, but what I think should happen is... they move the other airlines at the end of D to other gates and RDU start on the first finger to expand 2 in order to start working on RDU Vision 2040... add 5-6 gates.. and then start on the middle
I think Terminal 1 needs to grow back first. I never saw the validity of tearing down all the gates ,that were there, when everyone moved to 2. However they were not modern or permanent structures so mothballing them was probably out. Terminal 1 has the space and should grow first. They need to push the runways our prior to creating the fingers at Terminal 2.
Perhaps they will put in some international gates, because at this point it looks like Frontier is going to offer a lot of international flights from RDU. I can't imagine Southwest will wait long to offer more to the Caribbean.
