Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport, which is also known locally as Lovell Field, is located five miles from the central business district of Chattanooga in Hamilton County, Tennessee. As well as serving the local community and connecting flights, the airport also acts as diversion airport for the larger 'nearby' MARTA airport in Atlanta.
Chattanooga airport is owned and operated by the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport Authority, and has a single concourse. It is recorded that a flight from Chattanooga to Atlanta takes just 17 minutes flying on a Canadair Regional Jet, so it is not surprising that the airport serves the MARTA airport when flight operations in Atlanta are interrupted.
