Charlotte International Airport Information

The Charlotte Douglas International Airport in Charlotte, North Carolina is the biggest airport in the state. It was founded in 1935 as the Charlotte Municipal Airport. The military of the United States used the airport as a base in 1941. Over the course of time, terminals were built and flights were added as the airport grew in size. After being renamed in 1954 after the former mayor of Charlotte, the airport received its current name as Charlotte Douglas International Airport in 1982. Today, the airport is shared with the military.

Charlotte Douglas International has five concourses. Concourse A was originally built in 1986. The Concourses of B and C went through an expansion period in the 1980's. Concourse D received an expansion as well while Concourse E first opened in 2002.

There are four runways at the airport. The shortest one is just over 7,500 feet while the longest one is 10,000 feet exactly. The newest runway of the airport began in 2007. The purpose was to increase the number of flights that arrive in Charlotte at the same time. The construction for the new runway was completed in 2010.
