Charleston airport officials announced yesterday a 20 year expansion plan for CHS.

The expansion includes two new concourses, one on each side of the existing terminal building, a new parking garage, and a new surface parking.  The expansion will net 11 new gates.

The article states the airport services 2.6M passengers annually but I believe the airport is on track for 5.1M this year.

A couple of notes on CHS:

  • CHS is on pace to pass the 5M passenger count for 2022
  • the three new temporary gates will be installed by August.  At least one gate is now operational (gate A2A)

This update is a month old but CHS has added 2 gates (A6 & A7) in Concourse A.  I was under the impression these would be temporary gates as noted above but it looks to be permanent.  

Gate A2A was opened in July.


Total expansion cost was $11.5MM.
