“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page,” wrote Saint Augustine in the 4th century. North Carolina continues to take steps towards making the state a library of travel opportunities. Today, air travel is an important aspect of global infrastructure to support exploration and commerce. N.C. has non-stop direct flights to 35 destinations in 23 countries around the world, supporting global business, education, service, and tourism.
