Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is the busiest and most efficient airport in the world and, by some accounts, the best in North America. ATL is the economic jewel of Georgia, generating a $34.8 billion economic impact for metro Atlanta and providing more than 63,000 jobs onsite, making it the state’s largest employer.
Hartsfield-Jackson is a global gateway, offering nonstop service to more than 150 domestic and nearly 70 international destinations. These locales include major commercial centers in Europe, Asia, the Caribbean, Africa, and South and Central America. ATL also holds the distinction of being the first airport in the world to serve more than 100 million passengers in a single year.
In many ways, Hartsfield-Jackson is more than an airport. It’s also a destination. ATL’s burgeoning concessions program features more than 300 commercial venues meeting guests’ shopping, dining and service needs. And its art program integrates permanent and rotating exhibits and musical performances into the fabric of the guest experience.
Now with its capital improvement plan ATLNext, a 20-year blueprint for growth, the Airport is poised to modernize its Domestic Terminal, expand its cargo operations and concourses, replace two of its parking facilities, and pave the way for a hotel and mixed-use development that will further solidify Hartsfield-Jackson as a beacon of economic strength and customer service in Georgia – and beyond.
