Charlotte Douglas International Airport has recently released information about upcoming renovations to take place at the Queen City aviation hub. Check out the article, below, for more information.
As part of a massive $700 million rebuilding and renovation, Charlotte Douglas International Airport unveiled this week new amenities planned for passengers, including revamped restaurants, new public art and new seats with their own cellphone chargers.
The airport said the renovations and expansion can help the airport grow for three or four decades. The cost will mostly be paid by passengers through fees — not Charlotte taxpayers.
— The biggest CLT project is a new nine-gate concourse under construction just north of Concourse A. The new gates will house carriers other than American Airlines, and are being built in a modern, spacious style with 30-foot high ceilings. That’s more spacious than concourses A, B and C, which have 12-foot high ceilings.
“For a domestic concourse this is a different type of space,” said Jack Christine, the deputy aviation director. “It’s similar to the international concourse.”
