Concourse A Expansion – Phase II construction is underway and is expected to be complete in Fall 2024. The addition of 10 gates will house Delta Air Lines and three common-use gates.
The 191,848-square-foot expansion will feature auto-tint windows to help control interior temperature and sunlight, portal seats with built-in power for charging electronics, terrazzo flooring in aisles central and two new works of art in development.
The concessions will include a retail store, restaurant and two open bars. The washrooms will be fitted with modern finishes and water-efficient toilets and sinks.
The addition will be wider than other CLT domestic lobbies for an open and spacious feel that is accentuated by high ceilings and picture windows.
The overall cost of the project is approximately $231 million. It will be paid for by a state grant from the North Carolina Airport Improvement Program, a bond for passenger facility fees, and a bond for non-passenger facility fees. JE Dunn and McFarland, a joint venture, are the construction contractors for the project, which was designed by C Design and Perkins+Will.
Last month, the airport opened Concourse E Expansion, which added a gate to the north end of the concourse and moved nine existing gates to the new space for operational efficiency and to prepare for the installation of jet bridges. 2023.
CLT follows a demand-driven construction approach. Projects are built when passenger growth requires it.
