New Flights + Upcoming Restaurants

From locally owned restaurants and bars to direct destinations, here’s what’s rolling out at RDU.

If you’ve been browsing (or booking!) flights in between meetings at work, you’re not alone (shh, we won’t tell!). And RDU is taking notice. ICYMI, the airport set a new passenger traffic record in May thanks to over 1.4 million travelers (!) flying through—outpacing April by 10.5%. And the fastest-growing Top 50 airport in the U.S. isn’t slated to slow its roll anytime soon, with a constant rollout of new nonstop flights, runway updates and restaurant debuts keeping pace with frequent fliers.

Here, the lowdown on nonstop flights that have gone wheels up this year, plus deets on a slew of highly anticipated eateries to nosh at before embarking on your jet-setting dreams. Bon voyage!
