“As air travel begins to pick up for spring and summer, we want to reassure our passengers and employees that CLT is providing the safest facility possible. The Airport has chosen to take a multi-layer approach by enhancing our cleaning practices as well as utilizing innovative tools for sanitation.”
CLT is expecting more than 17,000 local passengers (customers who begin their trip at CLT) on Sunday, March 14. Although well below previous years, it will be the third highest number of local passengers (behind Sunday, Dec. 27, 2020 and Sunday, Jan. 3,2021) since the pandemic began in mid-March 2020.
The following safety measures have been implemented through CLT’s Healthy Building Initiative to combat COVID-19.
In December, Charlotte Douglas earned Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) Star™ Facility Accreditation. CLT is the first airport in North Carolina and one of 13 in the country to earn GBAC accreditation for its cleaning and infectious disease protocols.
Housekeeping crews at CLT continue to provide daily and deep cleanings with extra attention given to high-touch points and an electrostatically charged mist is sprayed on often-touched surfaces.
Last year, CLT also installed protective shields in all TSA security checkpoint lines and at many customer service counters – from stores to ticket counters to parking toll booths – for added passenger and employee safety.
“The Airport is committed to providing a healthy and enjoyable travel experience. We’ll continue to implement the highest safety standards as we welcome passengers who were apprehensive about flying in 2020 back to the terminal in 2021.”
