This new facility can be accessed in a variety of ways. Any traveler flying through CLT can enjoy the Gameway experience by purchasing access at the lounge based on the time they have available before their next flight. Meanwhile, monthly passes appeal to frequent flyers, flight crew, and other regular travelers who want to make their time in the airport fly by.

We firmly believe that the airport experience should be valued as an integral part of the travel journey, and simply put, our mission is to make airports entertaining. It made perfect sense for Gameway to partner in the development of this location with Airport Dimensions, as they are the global leaders in delivering experiences for air travelers. We know this is only the first in many more joint projects to innovate the airport experience and make time spent in airports both relaxing and fun! We also so appreciate the spirit of partnership shown by both Paradies Lagardère and the CLT Airport team, as its clear that all parties involved in this project truly prioritize the traveler experience.”
