CHARLOTTE, NC - CLT Airport made some changes in its terminal entrance and exit doors following the on-going construction of the Terminal Lobby Expansion (TLE) project, starting from the week of August 15 onwards.

The construction now covers the east side, near Checkpoint E, as the project reaches a new phase in mid-August.

Ticketing Door 4 will be closed, while the Existing Door 3 will continue to operate. Passangers can use the new Door 1 in the west end passage way and the new bridge from the Upper Roadway on the east near Checkpoint E. The same will apply at the Arrival/Baggage claim.

TLE falls under the airport's $2.5 billion “Destination CLT” investment program created to make room for customer growth throughout 2035. The project began in 2019 and is expected to finish in 2025. TLE is funded through Combination of Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) Revenues, Customer Facility Charge (CFC) Revenues, General Airport Revenue Bonds (GARBS), and Airport Cash

This $608 million expansion will improve the airport's entrance and Departures/Ticketing and Arrival/Baggage Claim, dedicating more space to the areas. The main terminal is also undergoing an expansion. So far, Destination CLT program have completed the new walk-ways, concourses A, B, and C, and a fourth parallel runway.

The current project will expand the terminal lobby to the north, which will create more space for security lanes, ticketing and baggage claim, increase capacity and circulation of the lobby. an exterior canopy will also be added to the airport.

New bridges and Tunnels leading to terminal will be accessible for passangers from the hourly deck and car rental agencies so they will not need to cross the road.
