Charlotte is experiencing exponential growth and one of our shining stars is the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport. It is currently undergoing a $2.5 Billion update with exciting changes to the whole airport. Those of us that live here see the changes every time we come and go from Charlotte. With such a big renovation plan, its going to take another 7 years to see the entire update completed. Most of the later renovations will be to add additional gates off the end of terminals and we may not see those changes as quickly. Most important, is the change to the main entrances and the check in areas. They are totally reconstructing the roadway to the main terminal and expanding the check in area. Our airport is in the top 10 busiest in the nation and we offer direct flights to Europe and Asia which provides great flexibility to Charlotte businesses.
