Travelers were lined up at Raleigh-Durham International Airport on Monday to board the first non-stop flight from RDU to Paris in over two years. Delta Airlines originally launched the flight in 2016 to satisfy the growing desire for both business and leisure trips to France from the Triangle.
RDU now has 6 non-stop international flights including London and Iceland after getting the Paris flight to Charles de Gaulle Airport back on the books. The re-opening of the flight path coincides with the Triangle’s continuing resilience to the pandemic in addition to supporting the growing business relationship amidst France and North Carolina.
Michael Landguth, president and CEO of the Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority, said in a press release. “We appreciate Delta’s commitment to bringing this signature destination back to the Research Triangle.”
