Charlotte Douglas International Airport is opening nine gates in a new concourse focused on enhancing the “passenger experience”. The gates have more space for travelers, and charging ports at every seat thanks to the installation of our Place™ seating series. Place power incorporates 1 AC and 2 USB ports at every seat for easy and convenient charging, making every seat the best seat in the house. Place seating offers extra personal space with tablet arms and integrated cup holders, inviting passengers to work, read, game, eat, and consume media comfortably. The new gates and seating also increase gate capacity by 10%.
This opening is the first part of the airport’s $2.5 billion expansion and renovation program to open.
