CHARLOTTE, N.C. —

Accidents and the weather delayed traffic at the Charlotte-Douglas Airport on Tuesday night.

However, on Wednesday, things were moving slowly but steadily.

It was so bad Tuesday night, people got out of their cars and walked to the terminal to catch their flights.

The airport had plenty of people out directing traffic Wednesday afternoon to make sure the problems didn't happen again.

There are still some long-term parking lots open, even though the airport lost more than 4,000 parking spots.

Eyewitness News had a chance to speak with Herbert Judon, assistant aviation director at the airport, who said Tuesday night's mess was the result of several factors coming together and they aren't expecting a repeat Wednesday.

"We have an army of people out here to help folks get to where they need to go. So were looking good, we have one other peak period tonight, but so far so good," Judon said.

Airport officials said the peak travel period will come between 7 and 9 p.m. Wednesday.

Things appear to be running smoothly inside the terminal as well with very few flights delayed.
