Just as an update (Sorry for being 4 months late):

New seasonal international flights to Barcelona, Brussels, Manchester and Lisbon. These all occurred before the merger became final so there is no guarantee that they will remain after the whole process is finished. Of these I'd say Manchester and Barcelona are safer than Lisbon and Brussels. But we'll see.

Rio will eventually end at the close of 2014, but Sao Paulo looks like it is staying for the time being. I was just on a flight from S.P. to CLT and it was packed. That to me is a good sign.

Also still waiting on the return of BA and how LH maintains its flight to Munich. LH says that they will keep the flight, don't see why not, but there are worries.

Post merger CLT so far looks like a major domestic hub with the occasional international flight. I don't mind that, especially with the competition from MIA and PHL. But I would like a medium-sized international presence with at least one flight to Asia. If we stay at the presence we have now and add one flight to say Hong Kong or Singapore, I'd be happy.

Probably not to Singapore. US Airways is no longer part of Star Alliance and that's what would be needed to make that route work. Too long and probably not enough passengers. Hong Kong might be in the future if AA can make HKG work post merger and if CLT and the surrounding areas continue to expand. My guess would CLT-NRT would be the first Asia route to CLT. NRT is a big One World hub with JAL and CLT will be now a One World hub and American and JAL could help with the feed on the route. PEK is one route I would also think that would do real well out of CLT down the road.

i believe charlotte and north carolina are still among the fastest growing places in the us. it may be wise for the aa to stake a claim to a place that has been and is growing so rapidly? i think there are almost 6 million people with a 75 mile radius of clt today...almost as many as are with 75 miles of atl today or, at least as many as were within 75 miles of atl 15 years ago.

CLT-MAN Now Boarding

American Airlines begins Manchester-Charlotte service
23rd May 2014


MANCHESTER Airport chiefs hailed the launch of the latest long-haul route today and declared there is "plenty more to go for".

The new route, a daily service to Charlotte Douglas International Airport in North Carolina, US, will be the fourth operated by the American Airlines from Manchester, although it will be operated by its recent merger partner US Airways.

Ken O'Toole, commercial director at Manchester Airports Group, said his team were looking next at increasing the frequency of flights to New York as well as bringing a direct Beijing route in the coming months.

He told TheBusinessDesk: "In our underlying catchment area we estimate believe around two million passengers go to the US a year. We are only serving around half that number at the moment so there's a lot of untapped demand.

"Our Fly Manchester campaign is all about demonstrating to passengers there is a long-haul alternative to Heathrow here."

He said the launch of the route to Charlotte was "gratifying" and the fruit of 18 months' work by his team in setting out a compelling business case for them to expand or launch Manchester flights.

The former Ryanair executive said Manchester has a "lot of traction" with the airlines on the back of increasing passenger numbers.

"We are going to hit 21 million soon and that'll be getting close to the 2007 peak of 22 million, and I am pretty confident we're going to get there in the next 12 to 18 months."

Clive Cook American Airlines’ MD of Airports UK & Ireland said that for the airline Manchester has an equal standing to European capital cities such as Rome and Madrid.

"There's a lot of confidence about Manchester - its up there with big capital cities. We are pretty confident we can be successful with the Charlotte route - it is a major hub for the airline.

"The route will begin as a seasonal, but if there's demand, we'll look at the potential for a year round service."

He added: "We are thrilled to add this flight to Charlotte, complementing our existing services to Chicago, New York and Philadelphia.

"Charlotte is one of the major airport hubs in the US with 39 million annual passengers where we have close to 630 daily departures to almost 150 destinations, travellers from Manchester will have excellent opportunities to connect onwards across the US or enjoy this historical city and its surroundings."

Groundbreaking was held earlier this month on the new CLT Air Traffic Control Tower. The 370 foot tower will be fully operational in 2020.

USDOT and Nasa open new ATD-2 laboratory at Charlotte Douglas International Airport

The US Department of Transportation (USDOT) and Nasa have opened a new airspace technology demonstration (ATD-2) laboratory at Charlotte Douglas International Airport in North Carolina.

During a five-year test project, the laboratory will help streamline the arrival and departure of aeroplanes and enhance surface operations to increase safety and efficiency, as well as reduce fuel consumption in the nation's aviation system.

US Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said: "As a son of this city and this state with its special history with modern flight, I'm thrilled that Charlotte Douglas International Airport is at the forefront of this innovative partnership between DOT and Nasa that will have a transformative and lasting impact on aviation." The ATD-2 project is part of the Obama Administration's NextGen initiative, which will provide coordinated schedules between the tower, terminal ramp and centre control facilities, as well as help air traffic managers to reduce congestion.



The project will also ensure that the future aviation system is able to handle more than four billion additional passengers estimated to be travelling worldwide over the next 20 years. Nasa administrator Charles Bolden said: "Imagine being able to spend less time pushing back from the gate, taxiing to the runway and taking off.

"The work that will be accomplished in this demonstration lab could be a game changer in terms of reducing airport congestion, which is good for passengers and for business. "It's also good for the environment, as engines spend less time running on the ground."

Over the coming 25 years, Nasa's green aviation initiatives aim to save about $255bn of the commercial airline industry. Charlotte Douglas International Airport deputy aviation director Jack Christine said: "This programme will deliver operational and environmental benefits, as well as improve the passenger experience at Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

"We look forward to working with all of our partners to make this demonstration a reality."

The airport, which handles about 45 million annual passengers, will demonstrate how the ATD-2 system can help balance air traffic at smaller and larger airports with intersecting air traffic routes.

Elevated Roadway and Terminal Curb Front​​​​


​Status:​​ ​Construction​​ Underway
​Description:​ ​The Airport has experienced tremendous growth, which has put a strain on the existing roadway system in front of the terminal. Construction of the hourly parking deck now provides room to widen the roadway in front of the terminal.

Additional commercial and passenger vehicle lanes will be constructed to assist those picking up and dropping off passengers. When complete, a total of 16 lanes will accommodate traffic.

Traffic flow will be reconfigured on each level; commercial vehicles will move to the three inside lanes and personal vehicles to the five outside lanes. This project will include the construction of passenger skybridges and pedestrian tunnels and will move the roadway further north to accommodate the future Terminal Lobby Expansion.
​Duration: ​36 months ​
​Milestones: ​Construction start - Winter 2015
Completion - Summer 2018
​Cost: ​$50,000,000
​Funding Source: ​Passenger Facility Charge Revenues

An additional 6,000 sq. ft. of open ramp space will be enclosed along the east wing of Concourse E at gate E16 to accommodate passengers of hardstand aircraft.

This project will shield passengers from the elements, decongest hold rooms, and heighten security and safety with boarding bridge equipped gates. This expansion will also enable larger regional aircraft to utilize the concourse due to the rising elevation on the north end and up-gauging of regional aircraft.
​Duration: 24 months
