Charlotte/Douglas International Airport in the US will begin construction work on the 120ft extension of Concourse E.

The expanded concourse will be able to accommodate larger aircraft such as the Airbus A330 and enable US Airways to handle an increased number of passenger aircraft, according to charlotteobserver.com.

Charlotte City Council awarded a $125,700 design contract to LS3P last month for the Concourse E extension.

Once fully complete, the concourse expansion project will offer 12 new gates.
