RDU Supports Virgin America With Letter To DOT

Wed Oct 18, 2006 3:16 pm

Just browsing through the DOT and noticed the Airport Director of RDU wrote a letter to the DOT in strong support of Virgin America's entrance as a US carrier. Even asking the DOT to "commence flight operations expeditiously and without further delay." Just thought it was interesting.......  thumbsup

Well, RDU is looking for service to SFO and since it doesn't look like we will be getting it from WN or UA, the next airline in line would be a SFO based airline. Though it is doubtful RDU would be near the top of VA destination list, this letter does kinda sweeten the pot.

Whatever the deal is, very cool and proactive.
