View Dynamic Glass Chosen for Charlotte Douglas International Airport Expansion
Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) has joined a large and growing list of leading airports rapidly adopting dynamic glass and setting a new standard in delightful passenger environments.
View Dynamic Glass is featured in the airport’s Concourse A Expansion – Phase I opening in July. The nine-gate, 229,807-square foot addition will house United, Southwest, JetBlue, Frontier and Air Canada airlines.
“This is a state of the art facility,” said Aviation Director/CEO Brent Cagle. “We are thrilled with the outcome. It sets the stage for what Charlotte Douglas International Airport has in store once concourse renovations are complete.”
Aesthetically, passengers will take notice of the wide open and spacious feel of the addition that is 30 feet wider than CLT’s existing concourses, as well as the high ceilings - all surrounded by View Dynamic Glass.
View Dynamic Glass reduces glare and unwanted heat within the terminal, providing a more comfortable environment for passengers and airport employees while also enabling CLT to reduce their carbon footprint.
“Concourse A Expansion – Phase I provides passengers a premier traveling experience,” Cagle added. “We’re really proud of the expansion,” Cagle said. “Our passengers are going to be delighted by the outcome.”
CLT’s adoption of dynamic glass builds upon its vision of embracing leading technologies to better serve its passengers, business partners, and the environment.
View Dynamic Glass has been installed at several airports to date, including Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), San Francisco International Airport (SFO), and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA).
