TRAVEL ADVISORY – PASSENGERS ADVISED TO REMAIN IN CONTACT WITH THEIR AIRLINES REGARDING FLIGHT STATUS DUE TO OUTAGE CAUSED BY DAMAGED CABLE AT RIO ROAD & ROUTE 29 – UPDATED: 3/7/16 5:45 p.m.
An underground CenturyLink cable was damaged early Monday morning during road construction at Rio Road and Route 29. This has caused data and phone outages for a large portion of northern Albemarle County, including the Charlottesville Albemarle Airport. This outage is impacting each of the airlines that provide service to CHO Airport in a different way. As a result, we encourage anyone with scheduled flights to remain in contact with their respective airlines. Contact information for the three airlines providing service to CHO Airport can be found below. Passengers are also advised to allow additional time when arriving to CHO Airport, since some airline procedures are taking longer than normal due to this outage.
The latest release from the Virginia Department of Transportation anticipates CenturyLink will restore service to all customers by Tuesday morning. We will post additional details as more information becomes available.

TERMINAL ADVISORY – 1/26/16
On Tuesday, January 26 the TSA checkpoint screening area made a move to its final location as part of the terminal improvement project. Passengers will enter the checkpoint through a new queuing area to the right of the screening area. Passengers will then proceed through a glassed-in area and enter the new screening location. There will be plenty of signs to guide you along the way. This will be the final move for the TSA checkpoint area and this also marks the completion of another phase of the terminal improvement project at CHO Airport.
The three airlines providing service to CHO Airport have resumed service in the wake of this weekend’s snowstorm. All passengers are still encouraged to remain in communication with their airlines regarding any specific questions about their flights, as it may still take time for operations to completely return to normal. Contact information for the three airlines providing service to CHO Airport can be found below.
Crews are continuing to treat and remove snow from the parking areas at CHO Airport. Assistance will be available if you need help clearing the snow from your car. We will also be continuing to provide updates on our social media channels. On Facebook, you can follow us at www.facebook.com/CHOAirport or on Twitter at www.twitter.com/CHOAirport.
TERMINAL ADVISORY – 12/10/15
December 9 was the last day of the original TSA checkpoint screening area location. The entry point for TSA screening has now changed (see left side of pic). During the extremely busy flight times an extended queuing area may also be opened (see right side of pic). Plenty of signs will help guide you along the way. We anticipate the final TSA screening area to be open in the next few months.
Expect increased delays and traffic along Route 29 over the next several weeks as road work associated with the Route 29 Solutions project continues. These construction projects will impact traffic at the Route 29/250 Bypass interchange, the Rio Road intersection, and the stretch of Route 29 from Polo Grounds Road to the Hollymead Town Center. Be on the alert for detour signs and allow extra time when traveling to CHO Airport, as you may encounter delays and increased traffic. Passengers with early morning flights are especially encouraged to allow extra time for their drive to CHO Airport, as some of the road construction will take place during the overnight hours.

Effective immediately, a new exit lane is now in use. After landing and entering the gate concourses, please follow the signs that will take you through the new exit lane and into the baggage claim area. This new lane, which replaces the old revolving door exit area, will allow for easier and more efficient exiting and access to baggage claim, while easing congestion during periods of heavy passenger traffic. Meeters and greeters are advised to wait for arriving passengers in baggage claim.
