Accessibility to the World
Charlotte Douglas has been a key driver of economic growth for the Charlotte region over the last three decades, in no small part because of Aviation Director Jerry Orr. Almost as iconic a figure as Kaskey’s Queen Charlotte, the taciturn and tight-lipped Orr is known for his unique style and fiscal stewardship, and respected as a visionary in the industry. Under his leadership, Charlotte Douglas has become one of the most cost-efficient airports in the world and achieved remarkable growth. The impending airline merger will result in Charlotte Douglas becoming a global hub for the world’s largest airline, and the Charlotte Regional Intermodal Facility will put it in play by air, rail, highway and sea in global transportation.
