Is there a way to take a flight from Norfolk, Richmond or any other into the Nags Head area? What airport is it? (Manteo maybe).

My husband did it a few years ago, but I cant seem to find it now.

Greensboro, North...

1. Re: Airport?

The Manteo airport code is MEO (some sites indicate MQI, but that is Quincy, MA), but I can't seem to find what airlines might fly in there. There is also an airstrip in Kill Devil Hills/Kitty Hawk (known as "First Flight" airstrip, but there are no services to speak of there -- private pilots flying in.
