A Message from the President
Chattanooga is flourishing as more people come here every day, new businesses open and existing ones expand. The Gig continues to spur economic development, and Chattanooga’s growing attractions are drawing visitors from all over the world. I’m proud of the service we continue to provide our community and the choice our travelers make to fly in and out of Chattanooga.
In 2017, the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport shattered the passenger boarding record with 484,517 travelers. We are well on our way to half a million, thanks to our customers who spread the word about how easy it is to fly Chattanooga.
We continue to make flying even easier for our business travelers, enabling Chattanooga companies to do business all over the world. We now have two non-stop United flights to Chicago and New York, and this summer, Delta will begin non-stop service to LaGuardia. In all, we’ve made it easier for travelers to book flights to thousands of destinations, including nine non-stop routes.
Because of the commitment of our carriers, support of our customers and growth in Chattanooga, we’re already meeting predictions from our old master plan, years ahead of schedule. This year we are embarking on a new master plan to explore more parking and add gates. Projections outline more than 700,000 enplanements by 2032.
Looking ahead, West Star’s expansion and our grant to revitalize the old National Guard site are key investments in the growth of the region. That’s alongside the award-winning Wilson Air Center, which continues to enhance our business focus with world-class corporate travel services.
Once our solar farm is complete with help from our partner EPB, we will be the first energy self-sufficient airport in the United States. As airlines choose to boost service in Chattanooga, we expect our travelers will have even more options to choose from, and I will work hard to enhance the convenience of the services we provide.
Thank you to all of our travelers who are ambassadors for the ease of flying from Chattanooga. With your support, the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport will continue to soar and reach new heights.
