Find Clues, Get Closer to Your 2019 #TravelGoals

Happy New Year! While you’re working on your to do list for 2019, don’t forget your #TravelGoals. We want to know where you’re flying this year and possibly make those dreams a reality.

Beginning Wednesday, Jan. 23 through Wednesday, Feb. 13, four cut-out characters will be traveling throughout the Shops of RDU. Each week, we will provide clues for where our tourist, businesswoman, pilot and adventurer might be hiding. Once you’ve found one of our travelers, snap a selfie and post it on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter using #TravelGoals to enter for a chance to win $500 toward your dream destination.

It’s this simple:

  • Locate a traveler cut-out, snap a selfie and post on social media
  • Tag @FlyRDU (Instagram), @RDUAirport (Facebook) or @RDUAirport (Twitter)
  • Use #TravelGoals and include where you want to go

In order to help you on your #TravelGoals scavenger hunt, we think you should get to know each of our travelers a little bit better.

Bermuda shorts, a backpack, a camera, and enough sunscreen to last until summer 2020. Our tourist frequents beaches and all-inclusive resorts, making sure to capture every moment of his travels, then promptly uploading all 257 images to Facebook.



The work never stops and neither does our businesswoman. She racks up more mileage points in a week than most do in a year. If traveling by air was a professional sport, she’d have a gold medal.


Our trusty pilot is making his way from one flight to the next. His destinations change daily and he likes it that way. A skilled captain in the air and a familiar face around our terminals, this guy always has a smile for those who cross his path. Why not? He’s living his #TravelGoal dreams.


Mount Kilimanjaro? Check. Spent a full summer navigating the Pacific Crest Trail? Check. Our adventurer proves there is no limit to what a mom can do. She’s constantly seeking out her next journey to uncharted territory. Backpack filled with fruit cake, bug spray, and a compass, she’s ready for whatever comes her way.

Not flying during the #TravelGoals period? No worries, you can enter on our website!
