Airport Authority History
In 1979, the Asheville Regional Airport Authority Board was established under North Carolina Statutes by Buncombe County and the City of Asheville to maintain, operate, regulate, and improve the airport while enhancing the economy of the region. Since its creation, the Authority has been successful in the development and operation of the airport and it has matured into a fully self-sustaining enterprise requiring no local financial assistance for its operations, maintenance, or capital programs.
Change to an Independent Airport Authority
On June 28, 2012, the North Carolina legislature voted to change the structure of the board to a state-sanctioned independent airport authority with more regional representation and governance. The Greater Asheville Regional Airport Authority (GARAA) is now the governing body for the airport and is comprised of seven members. The GARAA consists of the following:
- Two appointments by the Asheville City Council
- Two appointments by the Buncombe County Commission
- Two appointments by the Henderson County Commission
- One regional at-large appointment by the six board members
Authority meetings are held on the second Friday of the month and are open to the public.
