It surprises many people that CLT is one of the busiest airports in the US. In fact in 2020 it handled more passengers that Las Vegas and any of the Florida or New York Airports. So it might then after all not come as so much of a surprise that wait times at CLT can only be rated as average to long. You are advised to arrive 2 hours before a domestic flight and 3 hours for an international flight. Please always check with your airline and flight status before leaving for the airport.
