CLT Continues Seeing Large Crowds

Arrive Two Hours Early to the Airport

Charlotte Douglas is expecting large crowds today through next week. Passengers are encouraged to arrive at CLT two hours before their departure time. Be prepared for significant delays similar to holiday traffic. We are working to mitigate traffic congestion.

The upper-level roadway remains temporarily closed until next week for canopy construction. CMPD is onsite helping to direct traffic.

Drivers headed to the Airport should use Billy Graham Parkway as an alternate route. 


Parking at a Premium

Due to the high volume of passengers, parking also is in high demand this weekend. To guarantee the availability of preferred parking options and for the best rates, visit or the CLT Airport app to book official Airport parking online. Same-day booking is limited for all products, with a minimum of three hours in advance.

Overflow parking will be open during peak congestion. Passengers who do not book online are strongly encouraged to check parking availability on the CLT real-time parking map or call 704.359.5555 for the latest parking conditions.
