Piedmont Triad International Airport

Piedmont Triad International Airport (GSO)

Overview

Piedmont Triad International Airport is a cute little airport midway between Greensboro, High Point and Winston-Salem. This means it is well connected to a number of interstates, including the I-40 and the I-85.

Piedmont Triad has a modest selection of retail outlets ranging from newsstands to a PGA Tour Shop. The airport operates close to 60 flights a day, but it is still small enough to offer passengers all the charm of a less crowded airport.

Location

The airport is nine miles (14km) west of Greensboro.

Shuttles run at 30-minute intervals between 6am and 9am and 3pm to 7pm, and every hour between 9am and 3pm. Passengers must phone PART at least 30 minutes prior to desired airport pickup time.
