The Airport is a key gateway to the City of Chattanooga and has seen rapid growth in the past four years. Currently the Airport services three major carriers to six international hubs. Enplanements (passenger boardings) have risen from 309,235 to 484,517 between the years 2013 and 2017, a 56.6 percent increase. In 2008 the direct number of jobs provided by the Airport was 963. The projected number of employees that will be needed by 2028 is 1,600 amounting to a 66% increase. A masterplan for the Airport proper is currently being undertaken to assess the airport infrastructure that will be needed for a 20 year projection. As the Airport continues to grow as a major employment center and transportation hub it is estimated that there will be impacts on surrounding infrastructure and economic development. A planning study of the broader Airport area will aid the City in assessing needed infrastructure improvements and accommodate growth while protecting existing neighborhoods.
