CLT Airport officials telling spring break travelers to arrive three hours before flights


Over the next two weeks, school districts across the area will be taking spring break, and that’s prompted Charlotte Douglas International Airport to issue a warning to travelers.

Airport officials said they are expecting a lot more people to be traveling beginning this weekend. They’re telling travelers to get to the airport three hours before their flights starting Friday through Sunday.

Before 5 a.m. Friday morning, lines were long as travelers checked in for their flights.
The good news is that at least in the local area, there are no major weather problems in the southeast.
CLT officials also want travelers to know about the parking situation. Currently, long-term parking lot 1 is full and closed as of 8 a.m. Friday, while long-term lot 2 is open with plenty of spaces available. Passengers should keep in mind that can change by the hour and for those not flying out until Sunday, both lots could be full by then.
There is a real-time interactive parking map that can help travelers before they head to the airport.
The airport has an option to book parking ahead of time, so that’s something to remember as well.
Despite an uptick in some COVID-19 numbers in other states and high gas prices, experts are predicting more people will be traveling this spring and summer.
