Charlotte Douglas International Airport is committed to providing a safe and healthy airport so that passengers have the confidence to fly. Various safety measures and procedures implemented because of the COVID-19 pandemic continue. Teams from the City of Charlotte Aviation Department are working daily to assess safety and Airport needs and to adapt to an ever-changing travel experience that helps reduce the spread of the viruses.
Below you will find more information you need to know before you come to the Airport. Remember, plan ahead, arrive early and do your part to be safe and keep others around you safe as well.
Hospital grade MERV-13 air filters and bipolar ionization have been integrated into CLT’s heating, ventilation and cooling systems to create cleaner air throughout our facilities.
UV-C light sanitizes one of most frequently touched places in the Airport – the handrails of our escalators and moving sidewalks. UV-C lights eliminate harmful bacteria on surfaces as the moving handrails pass through a hidden mechanical device.
CLT was the first airport in North Carolina to receive the international stamp of approval for its response to the COVID-19 pandemic when it comes to cleaning, disinfection and infectious disease prevention in our facilities.
Housekeeping from the terminal to shuttle buses has increased to monitor for cleanliness and safety and to give special attention to those things that you touch often.
Hand Sanitizing Stations
When soap and water are not readily available, the Airport has 60 hand sanitizing stations throughout the terminal. You can find locations on any terminal map or on cltairport.com.
Masks are no longer required at CLT. The CDC, however, recommends wearing one in indoor transportation settings. The choice is yours.
