Transportation

York County offers companies and their workforce better and more efficient access and transportation for their products and people. Ideally situated to give residents easy access to major interstate highways, ports, and an international airport, the beaches and the mountains, York County is the best of all worlds for business, for opportunity, and for life.

Airports

York County is a 30-minute drive and one plane change away from the rest of the world thanks to the Charlotte Douglas International Airport. This facility averages 713 flights daily on ten major and four commuter carriers, providing non-stop service to more than 145 cities. Direct flights to London, Paris, Frankfurt and Munich offer international companies global air service. With 19 cargo airlines and over 60 freight forwarders, Charlotte cargo service offers less than 2 hour flight time to more than half the country's population as well as service to Europe, the Mideast, the Far East, South America and Mexico.

Within York County, The Rock Hill/York County Airport is the major business and industrial airport serving the area. The new 5,500 sq. ft. terminal is IFR certified. The airport provides passenger and air freight service on demand, but has no scheduled air freight due to the close proximity of Charlotte Douglas International.
