Destination CLT encompasses the first phase of our Master Plan Update, a collaborative effort with our airline partners and the FAA. It represents a 3.1 billion capital investment in capacity enhancement projects.
Over the last 20 years, the presence and growth of Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) and its airline hub have resulted in CLT becoming not only one of the busiest airports in the U.S. but in the world. With a forward-thinking philosophy and a focus on constant growth, CLT sees itself as an Airport of the future. Charlotte Douglas International Airport is one of the nation’s and world's busiest airports. Our growth has been remarkable, over the several years especially, increasing from 28 million total passengers in 2005 to a record-breaking 50,168,783 million total passengers in 2019. In 2021, CLT hosted more than 43 million passengers and handled nearly 520,000 aircraft arrivals and departures.
