​​​​​​​Welcome to the official online newsroom of Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT). All requests for public information, media interviews, filming projects and commercial photography should be directed to the Public Affairs office at CLT. When breaking news occurs, this site will be updated with the latest news and information as available.

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.
