Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT)

CLT is owned and operated by the City of Charlotte.

CLT 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 CLT its annual operating budget.


CLT's Mission:
We will serve as an economic engine of the Carolinas, facilitating the movement of people and goods, creating jobs and enterprise and sustaining a higher quality of life.


CLT's Vision:
We will be the preferred airport and airline hub by providing the highest quality product for the lowest possible cost.
