Charlotte Douglas recently tied for seventh place in a survey ranking the availability of healthy food options in the nation's busiest airports. This is the second year CLT has been included in the survey, which has been conducted by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) since 2001.
CLT showed the most progress in the study with 81 percent of the Airport's 50 restaurants offering healthy, low-fat meals in 2011 compared to 72 percent in 2010. Survey results were collected from June to November 2011 by PCRM dietitians who reviewed restaurant menus at 15 of the nation's busiest airports. Each airport's score was determined by dividing the number of restaurants offering at least one healthy option (low-fat, high-fiber or cholesterol-free) by the total number of restaurants.
Charlotte Douglas also received an accolade from Travel+Leisure magazine in September as one of "America's Most Family-Friendly Airports."
The magazine asked readers to rate 22 domestic airports in various categories, including family-friendliness. CLT ranked seventh in the magazine's first-ever airport survey. Readers noted CLT's rocking chairs in the tree-lined Atrium, free Wi-Fi and the "Just Plane Art," program, which features more than 20 permanent and rotating exhibits.
