CLT Airport Opens Concourse E Expansion

A 34,000-square-foot Concourse E expansion has opened at Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT).

As part of the expansion, a gate as been added to the north end of the concourse and nine existing gates have been relocated to the new space. This move will improve CLT’s operational efficiency and allow for future jet bridges that will be installed on all Concourse E gates by 2023.

Concourse E is CLT’s busiest concourse serving more than 400 daily arrivals and departures

Several modern amenities have also been added to the concourse, including a pet relief area, a mother’s room, restrooms with contactless fixtures, a family restroom, seats with integrated power sources, terrazzo flooring to accommodate rolling luggage, LED lighting and new wayfinding signage.

For aesthetics, 29 suspended blown glass sculptures, entitled “Antinomies” hang from the ceiling, with illuminating lights that change colour every four hours. The glass sculptures were blown by Jonathan Michael Davis of Durham.

The construction project cost 50 million USD. Work now continues on the concourse’s four new concessions that will open throughout the year: Gameway, Uptown Exchange, Sycamore Brewing and PDQ food outlet.

The airport is also planning to modernise the previous sections of Concourse E with new carpet, terrazzo flooring, LED lighting, seating with integrated power and new wayfinding signs. These renovations will be complete by the end of 2025.
