  • Terminal for Southwest
    Mar 12, 2013
    What is the terminal for Southwest Airlines at CLT? I don't seem to see it on the map. Thank you.


    Southwest doesn't currently fly to CLT. However, CLT only has one terminal, so when they start flying there they shouldn't be too hard to find. Their check-in and gates will probably be where Airtran is today.


  • Pls thru clt to phx
    Mar 5, 2013
    On march 18 we will be flying pls thru clt to phx. where will we go thru customs? How much time is needed between clt arrival and phx departure?


    You will clear customs in Charlotte, claim bags and re-check, and then have to go through security again. I would want 1.5 hours, but an hour might be OK.


  • southwest to vegas
    Mar 7, 2013
    i will be flying us air from asheville to charlotte then fling southwest to vegas. when i arrive from asheville to charlotte can i go straight to the southwest boarding gate (ill already have my boarding pass) or do i need to go through security again to have my carry on rechecked before heading to southwest gates? Will southwest gates be where airtran currently is?


    Yes, all gates at CLT are connected beyond security so you can just go to the gate. The Southwest gates will probably be where the Airtran ones are now, but there's no guarantee of that.


    SWA gates will be A4 & A6 (where Airtran is now). You will probably arrive in the E concourse on USAir. If you check a bag plane side with USAir they will bring it up. But if you check one curbside or at the ticket counter you will have to go outside of security to baggage claim and get it and then go to SWA ticket counter and check it and then go back through security. Check both carriers carry restrictions. SWA will not bring a planeside checked bag back up on your return.

    We are flying BWI to CLT and on to Rome, Italy (FCO), Our return will be the reverse. We are at a loss as to what are adequate connection times for the outbound and inbound flights considering changing planes but particularly customs at CLT.


    Outbound, 1 hr is sufficient and 90 minutes would be safe. Returning, I'd want 2 hours because of immigration which can get quite crowded at CLT during the time when all the European flights arrive.


    Thank you for the reply. Together with other replies, we can piece together what to expect.


  • connected at CLT from SFO to JFK
    Feb 5, 2013
    Hi, I will be flying from San Francisco to New York(JFK) on Feb,7 by US airways. I will be connect my flights at CLT airport. I have 1h2min of layover and since it seems US Airways serves every terminal. So I don't know which terminal is to arrive and which one to depart, I am not sure if I can have time enough to make my connection? Thanks !


    There is only one terminal in Charlotte and all the gates are connected beyond security. If your flight is on time you will have plenty of time.


    Oh, it means that I do not have to go through the security check and check in again even if I wanna go to another terminal, is it? That sounds so great!


  • tight connection domestic to intl
    Feb 2, 2013
    Hi, I am arriving at CLT from a domestic flight at 9:11 pm and hope to be able to make a flight to London leaving at 10:15--is this enough time to go through security again and get to the gate? I only have 1 carry on. Thanks in advance for your help.


    Your arrival at, and departure from, CLT, depends largely on the airlines you take. If taking two different airlines, make sure the first one will transfer your bags to the second one - not all airlines do - if not, you would need to claim your bag on arrival and re-check it in with the departing airline. I stronly I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.


    You will not have to go through security again. All gates at CLT are connected beyond security. If your first flight is on time, an hour is plenty of time.


    Thank you for the information.

  • connecting to Melbourne USA
    Jan 2, 2013
    I am flying from Farnkfurt by LH 5290 and travelling to Melbourne FLorida by US 2435. I land at 14.45 pm to leaving at 16.45. DO I need to recehck my baggage? Do I need to fill in the immigration formalities tat Charlotte?


    1. International arrivals need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag. As both US Airways & Lufthansa belong to the Skyteam Alliance, your bags should be transferred to your connecting flight. Lufthansa uses Concourse D, and US Airways uses Concourses D,C & E - with corresponding gates. Concourses A-E surround the main terminals, no shuttle service is needed. You have sufficient time for transfer.


    Thank you so much for the reply. It is quite helpful

    Is USO inside security area


    At CLT Airport, the USO Lounge is above the Atrium, accessible by stairway or elevator. (The Atrium is a glass-enclosed structure with a tree-lined boulevard dotted with comfortable white rocking chairs and surrounded by concessions & services. Opposite from the Atrium is the ticketing area and on either side the security checkpoints leading to the concourses.) I think USO is in the non-secured area.


    The USO lounge is located on the 2nd level above the atrium and is outside the security checkpoints


  • First time flying alone and clueless
    Dec 29, 2012
    I am going from FLL to BNA and the connect is in charlotte, when i get off the plane to the connect will i have to go to baggage claim to get my bag or will they have it for me ? And where is my gate number or terminal at ? And will i have to go through security check again ?


    I suggest you open and click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the detailed text. If you use different airlines you need to find out from the airline if they transfer bags to the next leg of travel, if not, you need to claim your bag in the baggage claim area and re-check-in your bag with your connecting airline at its check-in counter).
