BluePrint Simulations’ KCLT, Charlotte – Douglas International scenery depicts this important airport as in exists in the fall of 2015. It includes fully three-dimensional models featuring high-resolution textures throughout. It also incorporates all recent changes to the terminal complex and the airfield, making it the most detailed and accurate scenery available for this airport.
Thanks to its ideal location and driven by Charlotte’s status as the second most important financial center in the country, CLT is one of the most important airports in the southeastern US, second only to ATL. Over the years, several major airlines have used CLT as a hub, including Eastern, Piedmont/USAir and US Airways. Charlotte - Douglas will now serve as a major hub and the primary in the southeast within the route network of the new American, the world’s largest airline.
CLT’s terminal consists of the main departures and arrivals facility and five concourses that radiate from it, the classic design for airport terminals in the US at the time. American Airlines is the primary user of concourses B, C and D. Lufthansa and Insel Air, which along with Air Canada are the only international airlines serving CLT, also use concourse D as it is equipped to handle international arrivals. It is worth noting that American Airlines offers non-stop flights to several major European cities including Dublin, London, Paris, Frankfurt and Rome. Concourse E serves as an operations hub for American’s regional partners and it is one of the largest of its kind in the US. All other airlines operating at CLT including Delta and United and their regional partners plus JetBlue, Frontier, Southwest and Air Canada use concourse A.
Currently in the midst of a major overhaul and expansion, CLT has undergone a number of significant changes in the last few years. The most noticeable change affecting the terminal complex are the three massive parking structures that now accommodate short- and long-term parking and a consolidated car-rental facility. According to the airport’s master plan, the area vacated by the old car-rental facilities and located directly north of concourse A will accommodate a brand-new international terminal due to begin construction in 2016. Other recent changes to the terminal include a new departures hall and security checkpoint located just west of concourse E, an eight-gate expansion of concourse E and additional food service and administrative space located between concourses A and B.
The most relevant, recent improvements to the airfield include the third parallel runway (18R/36L) and the new taxiway along the east side of runway 18L/36R (Taxiway D). The westward expansion of the airfield to accommodate the new runway also required a new fire station located along taxiway S. The airport’s master plan also includes a fourth parallel runway located 1200 feet west of runway 18C/36C and scheduled to begin construction in the very near future.
