Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport (IATA: CHA, ICAO: KCHA), also known as Lovell Field, is a public airport operated by
the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport Authority, located in the city of Chattanooga in Hamilton County, Tennessee, USA.
Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport has a single concourse with five gates. Commercial service is provided by Delta Air Lines, American Eagle,
US Airways Express, and Allegiant Air. General aviation is serviced by TAC Air and Wilson Air Center 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 "Air North"
and "Air South." General aviation can find service at either location. In August 2011, Wilson Air Center opened up a facility on the west side of the field.
Currently, a flight from Chattanooga to Atlanta can take 18 minutes (from wheels up to wheels down) flying on a Canadair Regional Jet (operated by
Delta Connection) or Delta Air Lines DC-9. When flight operations in Atlanta are interrupted, Chattanooga is one of the first airports to receive diversions.
