Asheville Regional Airport seeks feedback through survey

Press release from the Asheville Regional Airport:

Take our survey to help guide the transformation of our region’s airport

The Greater Asheville Regional Airport Authority is beginning an exciting process. Unprecedented growth has occurred in the past five years, and it is time to take a leap forward to position the airport to thrive in our region for decades to come.

Designing a transformed and expanded terminal takes careful vision and thoughtful planning, and we invite you to be a part of the process. Please take a moment to give your input – take our seven-question survey by clicking the button below. We look forward to your feedback!



Parking shuttle now in operation

It’s easy to spot the new parking shuttle buses at the airport! This new service is now available for passengers who park in the southern-most Daily Lot (south of the garage). The shuttle will also serve the new parking lot (currently being constructed) across the street from the main entrance once it opens this May.

The parking shuttle is one more way we are striving to provide positive airport experiences for passengers and visitors. Thank you for flying AVL!

Be aware of traffic pattern changes

Temporary fencing has been installed, and utility work is underway along Terminal Drive in front of the airport. Please be aware that different areas of Terminal Drive will be closed during a months-long project to improve the underground utility lines that service the airport.

Traffic guards will direct vehicles around the construction areas. Passengers and visitors are asked to keep moving along Terminal Drive, and stops are limited to quick drop-offs and pick-ups. No parking and waiting along the curb will be allowed. A cell phone waiting lot is available, free of charge, past the terminal on the right on Terminal Drive, where visitors may wait in their cars for arriving passengers. When passengers arrive and are ready to be picked up, visitors may then circle around to the curb to pick up their passenger.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to make needed improvements at the airport.

AVL is a proud sponsor of the Asheville Marathon & Half at Biltmore Estate

We are proud to be a big part of western North Carolina, and it’s exciting to see the many great events happening this spring. The Asheville Marathon & Half at Biltmore Estate is one of the most popular races of its kind in the southeast. In fact, in 2018, the race was named as one of the Top 9 “vacation-worthy” marathons in the country by Outside Online.


We shared some airport love this February

This year’s “Smooches from Pooches” event was a sweet treat! Our Paws for Passengers ambassadogs had so much fun surprising passengers with a little puppy love for Valentine’s Day!
