A MESSAGE FROM LEW BLEIWEIS, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Thank you, WNC
Airport management can be exciting and complex, especially during times of extraordinary growth. Your local airport is growing faster than all predictions and forecasts, and it is in large part to your willingness to “fly local.” Thank you for your loyalty.

I do want to acknowledge that we have some challenges at AVL. You may know that we are building a completely new airfield. We broke ground in 2014, and five years later, we still have about a year to go before completion. Because we are a one-runway airport, this has been a complex undertaking. Thank you for your patience.
And as more passengers continue to use AVL, we also know that parking at the airport can be constrained at times. The good news is that we are building a shuttle lot with 300 spaces across the street from the airport. Our lower overflow lot will also receive shuttle service for those who need it – an enhancement we are excited to offer. We are hoping to open the new parking lot in late spring 2020.

So, again, thank you for your patronage and your patience. We will continue to make enhancements so the passenger experience is what you expect, and more.  
SKIP THE DRIVE & SAVE
It's worth a look
It’s time to head out. The car is packed and ready to go. You get settled into the driver’s seat and prepare yourself for the long trek to a distant airport. By the time you fill up the gas tank and drive for two hours or so, you feel worn before the journey even begins.

At AVL, we know your time is valuable. If you nixed the two-hour drive, what could you do with it?

A DIFFERENT SORT OF FLIGHT
Passengers surprised with tasty treats & pop-up concert
Welcoming passengers to Asheville with cupcake "flights" and local tunes? We'd say that's a pretty sweet start to a WNC adventure.

Did you miss out on the fun? Check out our video for a "taste" of the event!
