Airport Tours

Airport Tours Offer Behind-The-Scenes Experience

Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) tours provide an insider’s view of one of the country’s largest airports.

Learn what it takes to operate an international airport. Get the latest information on CLT’s construction and expansion plans. Find out what it means to be a hub airport. And learn about the Airport’s impact on the Charlotte region. The Aviation Department offers a limited number of airfield and terminal tours each month for interested groups.

Tours can be reserved up to three months in advance.

On the day of the tour, ALL participants ages 18 and older must bring a valid government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license, passport, or military identification. Bags are restricted to small purses only. Participants may bring their personal cameras.
