Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (IATA: CVG, ICAO: KCVG), sometimes called the Greater Cincinnati Airport, is a
Class B international airport located in Hebron, Kentucky, United States, and serves the Greater Cincinnati metropolitan area. The airport's code,
CVG, comes from the nearest major city at the time of its opening, Covington, Kentucky. Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International
Airport covers an area of 8,000 acres (32 km2).
The airport has three terminals, though only one in use. Since January 2007, Terminal 1 houses only airport administrative offices.
In May 2012, Terminal 2 was officially closed and all non-Delta operations were consolidated in a newly renovated Concourse A. Thus
Terminal 3 is the only remaining terminal.
Main Terminal (formally called Terminal 3):
Operated by Delta Air Lines until 2010, Concourse A underwent an extensive renovation before re-opening on May 15, 2012, to serve passengers on
Air Canada, American Airlines, Frontier Airlines, United Airlines, and US Airways, all of which formerly used Terminal 2, which is now closed.
As such, ticketing, security screening and baggage claim for all airlines now take place in the newly renamed Main Terminal (Terminal 3).
Concourse B is, like all concourses of Terminal 3, designed and originally purposed for Delta and its affiliates, including Cincinnati based
Delta subsidiary, Comair. The concourse thus houses all Delta and Delta Connection flights with a total of 39 gates. Also, U.S. Customs and Border
Protection are contained in Concourse B.
Concourse C, which once housed all Delta Connection flights, opened in September 1994 and closed in 2009 due to Delta Air Lines cutting flights
from the hub. Concourse C is an island and was only accessible by passengers from other terminals and ticketing facilities via buses. Delta has
a lease on the concourse until 2025.
The main terminal security checkpoint is on the ticketing level. This new, expandable checkpoint opened in November 2009. After clearing security,
passengers can take escalators or elevators down to the Cincinnati Airport People Mover that departs to all gates. Arriving passengers exit the terminal
by elevator or escalator up to the baggage claim level and ground transportation.
