FAA airport diagram

Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport (IATA: CHA, ICAO: KCHA, FAA LID: CHA), also known as Lovell Field, is a public airport located five miles (8 km) east of the central business district of Chattanooga, a city in Hamilton County, Tennessee, United States. The airport is owned and operated by the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport Authority. It is a Class C airport serviced by Chattanooga Approach.

Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport has a single concourse. Commercial service is provided by connection carriers for several major airlines. General aviation is serviced by TAC Air FBO. The general aviation ramp is split into two locations, with one on the South side of the main terminal, and the other to the North. The locations are respectively referred to as "TAC Air North" and "TAC Air South." General aviation can find service at either location, although business jets are preferred at North, and military and other miscellaneous traffic is preferred at South.

Currently, a flight from Chattanooga to Atlanta can take 17 minutes (from wheels up to wheels down) flying on a Canadair Regional Jet (operated by Delta Connection). When flight operations in Atlanta are interrupted, Chattanooga is one of the first airports to receive diversions.

It has been proposed that a new high-speed rail line be constructed from the airport to MARTA in metro Atlanta, so that it could easily serve as Atlanta's second airport.

Facilities and aircraft

Lovell Field covers an area of 950 acres (384 ha) which contains two asphalt paved runways: 2/20 measuring 7,400 x 150 ft (2,256 x 46 m) and 15/33 measuring 5,575 x 150 ft (1,699 x 46 m).

For the 12-month period ending December 31, 2006, the airport had 77,361 aircraft operations, an average of 211 per day: 57% general aviation, 24% air taxi, 14% military and 5% scheduled commercial. There are 115 aircraft based at this airport: 53% jet, 31% single-engine, 14% multi-engine and 2% helicopter.
