 Airline Information:

 

Allegiant Air began scheduled service at Concord Regional Airport in December of 2013 and has been providing twice weekly service on Monday and Friday to the Orlando-Sanford International Airport serving the Orlando / Daytona Central Florida market with 166 passenger MD-80 or 177 passenger Airbus A-320 aircraft.  In mid August 2014 through the month of September, those flights took a temporary break as vacation travel demand decreased with the start of the school year. These flights have returned in October and beginning in November 2014 will expand to  four days a week.  In addition, beginning on November 13th, 2014, Allegiant will add a second destination with twice a week service to the St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport (PIE).

Concord Regional Airport  Control Tower

The City of Concord is a member of the United States Contract Tower Association as our Control Tower is funded and staffed under the FAA Contract Tower Program. 

Our air traffic controllers have extensive experience (many are former FAA controllers from Charlotte Douglas International Airport) and are employed by RVA Aviation through a contract with the City of Concord to operate the airport control tower.  The tower is staffed daily from 7AM until 11PM local time, and occasionally open extended hours for special events or customer demand.

Recently the Contract Tower Program has been a target of budget cuts in Washington, DC, which could affect Concord Regional Airport.  We believe continued funding is essential to airport safety, regional economy, air service growth,  and airspace coordination in the Charlotte area. Efforts by stakeholders were made have saved the program in this budget cycle however the program could again be under scrutiny in future budgets so it is essential that all stakeholders keep informed on federal transportation and FAA budget process.
