No problems at airport one day before convention starts



CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Things at Charlotte-Douglas Airport were running smoothly Monday afternoon.

Airport officials told Channel 9 they expect more passengers arriving in Charlotte Monday than on Sunday.

More airport security, Charlotte Mecklenburg police officers and K-9 units were visible around the arrival and departure areas. Those security measures will not loosen up Monday.

Aside from the extra security, travelers said they could hardly tell there is a convention about to start.

“I didn’t see anything unusual, at least that I am aware of.  It’s normal, quite normal. It’s almost like nothing is going on,” said traveler Andrew Bramley.

More than 200 volunteers are also in the airport assisting passengers.
