The terminal expansion will accommodate additional checkpoint lanes and reconfigure the ticket counters and the Arrivals/Baggage Claim lobby. For more information, click on the link for CLT 2015 Construction.

CLT's Mission:
We will serve as an economic engine of the Carolinas, facilitating the movement of people and goods, creating jobs and enterprise and sustaining a higher quality of life.

CLT's Vision:
We will be the preferred airport and airline hub by providing the highest quality product for the lowest possible cost.

The Airport is operated financially on a fully self-sustaining basis – no general fund revenues have ever been or are appropriated to the cost of the facilities or operations. Rather, Airport revenues defray all capital and operating costs including the cost of City furnished services. Airport revenue types include the airfield, terminal area, concessions, parking and the cargo area. This gives the Airport its annual operating budget.
