Doing Business With CLT

​​​​​​​Two construction workers on top of the parking deck they are buildingCharlotte Douglas International Airport is owned and operated by the City of Charlotte. The Airport is operated financially on a fully self-sustaining basis – no general fund revenues have ever been or are appropriated to the cost of the facilities or operations. Rather, Airport revenues defray all capital and operating costs including the cost of City furnished services. Airport revenue types include the airfield, terminal area, concessions, parking and the cargo area. This gives the Airport its annual operating budget. 
Each year, CLT contributes nearly $12 billion to the local economy. The Airport continues to build for the future through the Destination CLT​ development program.
