Unfortunately the airport needs a lot more growth than that. 1 west coast direct flight unfortunately won't help so much in the long run, particularly if the city wants to make good use of the conference space they do have. This is one of the reasons (not the only) that the conference space RVA does have can't attract any national conventions. Until travel to the city becomes truly easy, it will always play fourth fiddle when these national groups are looking.With the expansion of the a terminal and the increase in traffic (on pace for over 4 million passengers this year) we will see additional flights and hopefully at least 1 west coast direct flight.
