Greensboro, N.C., joins list of Boeing 777X suitors

The Greensboro and Winston-Salem area in North Carolina, served by Piedmont Triad International Airport, is among the suitors for Boeing’s 777X manufacturing and assembly facilities, according to a local business newspaper.

The Triad Business Journal reports on its website Monday that the airport authority’s chairman says local officials “have been working night and day on a proposal for a large aircraft manufacturer.”

Responses to Boeing’s wish list are due Tuesday. The company has sent copies of its request for proposals to 15 sites. That count likely includes multiple locations in some states like North Carolina, where Charlotte officials have also made public their interest.

The Piedmont Triad airport has up to 1,000 acres of land available for new tenants, and in 2014 will build a taxiway connecting its 10,000-foot main runway to hundreds of additional acres and a second, 9,000-foot runway, the Triad paper reports.
