Destination Excellence: CLT ✈️
If you're flying in or out of Charlotte, you're in for a treat—at least compared to other large airports! Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) is truly exceptional.
Ranked among the world's top 10 most connected airports, it also serves as American Airlines' second-largest US hub (second to Dallas, the #1 AA hub). In 2022 alone, the CLT airport welcomed 47.7 million passengers and processed over 200,000 tons of cargo.
Looking for non-stop flights? CLT has you covered with 180 of them, including more than 35 international destinations. The best part for those residing here? Charlotte Douglas International is only a 15-minute drive from the heart of Uptown. The Wall Street Journal even recognized it as one of the most convenient large airports in the country.
For those flying private, Wilson Air Center collaborates with CLT to offer unparalleled service to private and corporate aviation customers. Handling 80 flights a day, it's consistently ranked as a top Small US FBO (Fixed Base Operator) Chain by Professional Pilot magazine.
And let's not forget the economic powerhouse that is CLT Douglas International. Contributing $32 billion to the Charlotte area economy, the airport is, no question, a major player. Plus, with the upcoming Destination CLT project, a $3.1 billion renovation and construction campaign, we can expect expanded concourses, terminals and a fourth parallel runway, all within the next 10 years.
