CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) -
Chattanooga Airport officials agreed Monday to target air travelers who live in the north Atlanta suburbs, and they plan to about double the size of Lovell Field's rental car lot to meet higher demand.

Terry Hart, the Chattanooga Airport's chief executive, said passenger boardings already are growing in the Chattanooga area, up 15.27 percent through April over the same period a year ago.

Reaching out to the counties north of Atlanta is another opportunity to grow, Hart said.
