CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The director at Charlotte Douglas International Airport says he supports switching control of the airport from the city to an independent airport authority.
Jerry Orr said Monday he thinks the airport should be run by an authority.
Orr had previously said he thought the airport could be run more effectively by an authority rather than the city. Then-interim city manager Julie Burch told Orr in February not to lobby for the switch.
