Piedmont Airlines || Chronology of Inaugural Service
Piedmont's storied 40-year history is tied to its inaugural service from its earliest days in the Mid-Atlantic region to the airline's post-deregulation push across the United States, ultimately including international flights to Bermuda, London, Montreal, Nassau and Ottawa. Below is a chronology of all Piedmont Airline's station openings from 1948 through June 15, 1989, when the company's last station opened in Melbourne, Florida.
