CONCORD, N.C. - Concord's airport is getting ready for its first commercial flights later this month.
The Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air will start its jet service from Concord to Orlando on Dec. 20. Wednesday the airport director let Channel 9 get a look at the changes made to accommodate the new service.
One of the most noticeable features is all the new signage to help direct future passengers.
