Finding information on the go about arriving and departing flights at Charleston International Airport just got easier.

This week, the airport converted its website to a mobile responsive design, making it easier to look up information on mobile phones and tablets.

"The new design puts the information passengers need front and center on their desktop as well as on their mobile phones and tablets," said airport spokeswoman Charlene Gunnells, manager of corporate communications. "The new web pages also give the site an updated, fresh, modern feel and look."

The home page at is designed to make it easy for passengers to find information about ground transportation, visiting Charleston and travel information. Also more prominent is real-time data on flight tracking, arriving and departing flights and links to airline and rental car company websites for booking.

New interactive graphics and photographs connect passengers and web users to useful news and information about the airport and about the Terminal Redevelopment and Improvement Program currently under way, Gunnells said.

The site also makes it easier for people to connect and engage with the airport via its social media sites, including Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Instagram.

Charleston International, the state's busiest airport, saw 2.9 million passengers last year. That number is expected to swell to 4 million over the next 15 years.

The nearly $200 million terminal redevelopment project, including $10 million in upfits by concessionaires, is expected to be completed in September 2015.
