History

An antecedent of PTI Airport, one of the first commercial airports in the South, Maynard Field was dedicated on December 6, 1919, in an area east of Winston-Salem near the community of Oak Ridge. With its two intersecting runways measuring 1890 feet and 1249 feet, hangar space, and even an early day equivalent of a Fixed Base Operator that made sure the torches were lit at dusk, Maynard Field was named to honor a young North Carolinian pilot named Lt. Belvin Maynard. By 1922 it had competition to the west with Miller Field in Winston-Salem, and Charles Field, a single airstrip that was used mainly for barnstorming, and to drill take-offs and landings for the Charles family. is the 340th day of the year (341st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Piedmont Triad International Airport had its start in 1927, when the Tri-City Airport Commission selected 112 acres of land near the community of Friendship for an airport, and filed a petition to become a stop along the congressionally authorized airmail route from New York to New Orleans. Friendship, near Greensboro, was selected over neighboring Winston-Salem, which subsequently denied contributing funds for airport construction and nullified the Tri-City Airport Authority collaborative effort.[3] Greensboro is the name of some places in the United States of America: Greensboro, Alabama Greensboro, Florida Greensboro, Georgia Greensboro, Maryland Greensboro, North Carolina Greensboro, Pennsylvania Greensboro, Vermont This is a disambiguation page: a list of articles associated with the same title. ... Winston-Salem is a city located in Forsyth County, North Carolina. ...


Greensboro and Guilford County jointly purchased the Friendship property from Paul C. and Helen G. Lindley, and christened it Lindley Field in May 1927 with 12,000 people in attendance. No runways, no lights, no hangar, and no passenger station existed at the time. Charles Lindbergh stopped at Lindley Field with the "Spirit of St. Louis" on his cross-country tour celebrating the advances of aviation on October 14, 1927. Regular mail service was established in 1928.[4]


Pitcairn Aviation, Incorporated was given the contract to fly the authorized airmail route; recognized as the second official airmail route in the United States, and the first designated airmail stop in North Carolina. After a brief closure during the Great Depression, the airport reopened on May 17, 1937 with two all-weather runways. In time, Pitcairn Aviation built a hangar; Greensboro built a passenger station; the United States government established a weather bureau; and the Department of Commerce set up a radio tower. Passenger service was inaugurated by Dixie Flying Service on November 6, 1930, with a route to Washington, DC. Pitcairn Aviation took over the route under its new name Eastern Air Transport, which later became Eastern Air Lines.[5]


In July, 1942, responsibility for the airport was given to the Greensboro-High Point Airport Authority, with appointed representatives from Greensboro, High Point, and the Sedgefield community. Shortly thereafter, the Army Air Corps requisitioned the airport and its facilities for war use, and airmail and passenger service was discontinued. The Corps improved the facility by lengthening the runways and constructing a new passenger terminal. Civilian service resumed at the close of the war, though growth was moderated due to the success of nearby Smith Reynolds Airport in Winston-Salem. Smith Reynolds Airport (IATA: INT, ICAO: KINT) is a public airport located 3 miles (5 km) northeast of the city of Winston-Salem in Forsyth County, North Carolina, USA. The airport has two runways, and is used primarily for general aviation and flight training, although some passenger operations take place... Winston-Salem is a city located in Forsyth County, North Carolina. ...


Greensboro-High Point Regional Airport opened its new passenger terminal in 1958, replacing the temporary facility that had served the airport since World War II. The new terminal was a modern glass paneled structure with a single enclosed pier, along which aircraft parked. At the time of the terminal's opening, Greensboro was served by Eastern, Piedmont, Delta and Capital (which merged with United in 1961.)


By 1975, airport officials began to plan for construction of a new terminal. Piedmont Airlines, which for years had served both GSO and Smith Reynolds Airport in nearby Winston-Salem, announced its intention to consolidate its operations at Greensboro Regional Airport. It became apparent that a larger facility would be needed. In the months that followed, Piedmont Airlines opened a hub in nearby Charlotte instead, due to the business-friendly environment and flexibility of staff there.[citation needed]


The airport was renamed Greensboro-High Point Airport. The name was later changed to Greensboro/Winston-Salem/High Point Airport.


Work on the new (and current) facility began in 1978. The new airport terminal and concourse complex was completed in 1982 and the facility was renamed Piedmont Triad International in 1987.


In the mid-1990s, Continental Airlines developed a hub operation at the airport (its fifth largest), largely to support its new Continental Lite low-fare product.

Airport terminal information

Completed in 1985, the terminal currently has 25 passenger gates; 11 on the south concourse, and 14 on the north concourse. It has undergone many renovations and expansions. The north concourse has just undergone an expansion; it is now technically the same size as the south concourse, despite the different gate numbers. In addition, TSA screeners used to screen checked bags in front of the airline ticket counters, because there was limited space available. Now, they're located at each ends of the main terminal. Also, a new bag belt system will carry luggage from the upper to the lower level. The renovations added another 40,000 square feet to the terminal; at a cost of $5 million. Delta Air Lines, the airport's second largest carrier, is now operating from the north concourse.
