Welcome from the Aviation general
Welcome to the bHartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International
Airport Information Page. ATL is, the world's busiest
airport, with nearly 90 million passengers annually.
You could not have chosen a more exciting period
to provide air service out of Atlanta. Hartsfield-Jackson
is in the final stages of completing a capital improvement
program that will allow us to efficiently and affordably
meet higher demands for air cargo and projections
for significant increases in passengers.
Past projects through the capital improvement program
include the fifth runway, which opened in 2006,
and the rental car center and elevated ATL SkyTrain,
which began service in 2009. Rounding out the program's
high-profile projects is the newly opened Maynard
H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal. Perfectly
timed for the expected surge in international travel,
this facility and its new concourse now connect
with Concourse E to create a 40-gate international
air travel gateway for Atlanta.
Hartsfield-Jackson makes it quick and easy for
passengers to get from one place to another, including
within the Airport itself. The Plane Train, the
Airport's underground automated people mover, connects
all seven concourses with the terminals. The wait
time is less than two minutes between trains. Hartsfield-Jackson's
transportation system and other factors led the
Air Transport Research Society to name it the world's
most efficient airport in 2011.
The Airport also offers convenient transportation
to downtown Atlanta and points beyond through a
Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA)
station inside the terminal.
Hartsfield-Jackson's vision is to be the global
leader in airport efficiency and customer service
excellence, and our staff members always are ready
to help your operation here succeed. Please do not
hesitate to call on me or any staff member for assistance.
The information in this handbook is subject to
change at any time. Please contact Hartsfield-Jackson's
Marketing division for the latest information.
Again, welcome to the Hartsfield-Jackson family.
I look forward to a long and prosperous partnership
