Airport to temporarily close security checkpoint

Posted: Updated:

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Charlotte Douglas International Airport will temporarily close Checkpoint A during the month of July for expansion and renovations.

The checkpoint will close at noon on Wednesday, July 7, 2010, so crews can begin work to expand the space by approximately 2,000 square feet. The additional square footage will allow Checkpoint A to increase from three security lanes to four.

It will also accommodate installment of the advanced imaging technologies scanner (also known as a full body scanner), which the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) began using at CLT in early May.

Checkpoint A is scheduled to reopen August 7, 2010.

Passengers are asked to make note of the closing of Checkpoint A before arriving to the terminal building.

Checkpoints B (expanded in April), C and D will remain open.

To assist and minimize wait times for passengers, TSA will reassign staff to the open checkpoints and will work to keep all of the remaining security lanes open.
