Business Travel at AVL
Business travel isn't just about finding a quiet corner at the airport to finish that presentation, or hopping on the free Wi-Fi to send just a few more e-mails—both of which are easy to do at AVL. Business travel is also about supporting the economic vitality of your own community by choosing to fly local.
A strong airport contributes to the economic vitality of a region – and loyal local patronage of the airport plays a huge role in the strength of the regional economy.
AVL is self-supporting financially – meaning no tax dollars are utilized for the operations of the airport – and it provides valuable travel services which bring people, businesses and jobs to our region. And, like many other large businesses in the area, the payrolls, the services used and the multiplying effect of those dollars spread throughout Western North Carolina.
Business travelers tend to be frequent travelers, and airlines prefer to have a strong number of business travelers on their planes. Airlines also make decisions about adding routes based upon the strength of utilization at each airport – especially business travel use.
As a business traveler, we encourage you to consider Asheville Regional Airport first in your travel planning. We recognize that we won’t always offer the route or type of service you require. However, our list of non-stop routes continues to grow, and with your continued patronage, airlines will look at AVL as a desirable location for additional flights and routes.
And we’ll advocate for the routes you need – especially if there is substantial demand. That’s our job – we want AVL to be what our travelers need it to be, and we always want to hear your input.
Thank you for visiting this page, which we developed specifically for business leaders and travelers in our region. It is important for us to have an open dialogue, and understand the synergy between a strong regional airport and a strong regional business community.
