    CHARLOTTE, N - Got a long airport layover? How about a cancelled flight? A new business inside Charlotte Douglas International Airport caters to travelers who want a private place to rest.

    Minute Suites held its Charlotte grand opening Tuesday.

    There are six suites with a daybed sofa, TV, and even an Alexa. The bathroom features a shower.

    Travelers can book rooms by the hour or overnight.

    Charlotte airport officials say it’s a great space for travelers who may be stuck in severe weather.

    “We know in the summer we get a lot of late afternoon thunderstorms. We do have a lot of delays. This gives passengers an option to find a private space,” Aviation Director Brent Cagle explained.

    “From a customer experience standpoint, from a revenue standpoint, it’s a win, win,” offered Paradies Lagardere President Gregg Paradies.

    Charlotte is now one of four airports offering the service. The first one launched in Atlanta a few years ago.
