There is a major push to bring a second international flight to Raleigh Durham International Airport.  The Airport Authority wants it, the business community wants it, and so do travelers.

But don’t hold your breath.  Luring international flight service to RDU can be just as hard as trying to convince a major corporation to move here.

Raleigh Durham International Airport or RDU gets to call itself an international airport mainly because of its ONE international flight.  And like clockwork, you can count on that ONE American Airlines flight to London, seven days a week.

The Raleigh Durham Airport Authority is looking for ways to put more than 2,000 acres of undeveloped land to good -- and profitable -- use.  Authority members heard a presentation Friday morning from representatives of the Urban Land Institute.  Here's what was proposed:

The Christmas and New Year holiday travel season means big business for the nation’s airports.  A report by N-C State and the Institute for Transportation Research and Education shows just how big aviation is in this state. 

Passengers who travel through Raleigh-Durham Airport will have a chance to earn rewards for their business.

Things will get really busy very soon at RDU Airport.

Michael Landguth: "Friday actually kicks off the busiest travel period of the year for RDU so we want to introduce a new program."

A brand new business-friendly route to the west has taken flight from North Carolina.

Announcement: Welcome to United Airlines' inaugural flight 194 with service to San Francisco.

Raleigh-Durham International Airport is beefing up its security with new imaging technology designed to protect passenger privacy. The Transportation Security Administration is installing five new scanners at RDU. They should be up and running in the next few days. RDU's TSA Federal Security Director Michael Zunk says previous scanners allowed security to see a detailed image of a person's body.
