Building the Piedmont Airlines Hub in Charlotte, North Carolina, 1978-1989

Record #:
This article examines the development of the airport at Charlotte between 1978 and 1989 through its association with Piedmont Airlines. The airline was able to demonstrate the positive effect of an air transportation hub in Charlotte in the face of public doubt. After Piedmont Airlines merged with US Airways in 1989, the Charlotte Douglas International Airport is still a regional hub for air travel in the South.
