As the world’s first major airport with a wood truss structure, Terminal 2 offers southern hospitality with a warm, inviting passenger experience that welcomes travelers to North Carolina.
Serving the largest research park in North America, its design reflects the cutting-edge impact of three universities and numerous bioscience companies in the Research Triangle. A blend of the region’s economy, heritage and landscape, Terminal 2’s rolling roofline reflects the Piedmont Hills, while the daylit interior provides the latest in common-use technology. Long-span wood trusses create column-free spaces that offer efficiency and flexibility, from ticketing to security.
Terminal 2 at RDU was honored as the world’s best in “Notable Regional Airport Development” by Passenger Terminal World.
