About the focus on RDU Airport
“With air passenger traffic setting records every year, RDU’s infrastructure needs are far outpacing projections, as nearly $900 million in projects must be accelerated. The 2019 RTA Business Briefing will enable the regional business community to hone in on the needs and potential of our growing RDU Airport and respond accordingly and decisively.”
– Geoff Lang, MetLife, 2019 RTA Chair
“RDU International Airport has an estimated annual economic impact exceeding $12 billion. The regional business community has a keen interest in the continued success of RDU, and we look forward to a productive and impactful RTA business briefing event on May 20th.”
– Mike Schoenfeld, Duke University, RTA Air Service Chair
