...To "Central North Carolina International Airport." Part of their rebranding effort.

Kind of a mouthful and not sure what this does to improve branding.

I guess the other Triad cities don't want to be "left out" if it was "Greensboro International Airport," but I'd prefer that over the proposed name. I personally like PTI since that identifies the region well - probably better than the proposal.

Pointless. I don't see how this improves anything.

Don't like it at all. It goes against the grain of branding the Piedmont Triad. It doesn't even flow off the tongue well. Yes and you can't put Greensboro in the name without Winston-Salem and High Point then the name would be to long. They should have just left it alone.

They stated people were confused by the location reference of Piedmont Triad but think Central Carolina will clear that up? I would bet the vast majority that hear Central Carolina will guess they're referencing the Raleigh-Durham area. This has taken regional branding back a good twenty years, good job!

The name is vague and certainly isn't specifically associated with Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point.

How about finding ways to make the Triad more well known globally? The airport code will remain GSO though.

Or Columbia, South Carolina. Central Carolina is vague because it doesn't even specify which Carolina it's referring to.
