Located at the center of North Carolina and the midpoint of the East Coast, PTI is strategically positioned at the hub of the dynamic Piedmont Triad region, situated between the cities of Greensboro, Winston-Salem and High Point where I-40, I-85 and the future I-73 and I-74 converge. More than 4.5 million people live within a 90-minute drive of PTIA.

The terminal building is open 24 hour a day, 365 days a year.  TSA Checkpoints open at 4:15 a.m. every day.

Airport Campus

Piedmont Triad International Airport is part of a 4,000-acre campus, home to more than 50 companies that infuse an estimated $1 billion into the local community annually. More than 4,000 people work on the campus. PTI is owned and operated by the Piedmont Triad Airport Authority. No local tax dollars are used to operate the airport.
