CHO Airport Advisory

The upper-level American Gate 5 area is closed for the replacement of our escalators.

This gate has been relocated to a building off of the Tailwinds food court area. As you enter the secure side from TSA continue straight and take the hallway on your right.

The new Gate 5 building has plenty of seating for you to wait for your flight, however, if you want snacks or need to use the restroom you will have to return to the main terminal.


The Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport Authority will be opening walk-up taxi permitting to all licensed commercial taxis for a 12 month period beginning December 13, 2021.

Please contact the on duty public safety officer to confirm an appointment at 434.981.4152
