Faster development sought around world’s busiest airport



Quote:
Regional economic developers want to expand the idea of an Aerotropolis to encompass more of the area around the world’s busiest airport.

For now, the Aerotropolis is best known as the 130-acre redevelopment of the former Ford Motor Co. plant.

One target of the expansion is the more than 300 acres of land within what’s known as the Mountain View redevelopment in Clayton County east of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

The primary landowner in the Mountain View area is the city of Atlanta. It acquired properties through the Airport Authority.

Yep they do. The new intl' terminal looks very nice and modern. Too bad the rest of the airport doesn't look modern and sleek.

Love video with the two shots of Korean air and the one shot of Southwest Airlines. Just shows you how dominant Delta is.

The Hartsfield-Jackson Airport has handled 95,462,867 passengers during the 2012 calendar year, eh? Five million more, and within a few years, it will have become the first major airport in the world to have handled over 100 million passengers per annum.

The airport has been an uquestioned success. However, I have one question: what does all that airline traffic do for the air quality in the ATL?

Hartsfield-Jackson is the economic engine of the entire Southeast region, generating $23.5 billion to the regional economy.

ATL airport is successful solely because of Delta which operates the world's largest airline hub and employs 80K people.
If for some reason Delta moves from Atlanta, a huge chunk of traffic could potentially be lost and along with it the jobs associated with the airline and the airport.
So I think ATL is successful mostly because of Delta.

There is no way Delta would leave their cash cow. It's one of the few things that makes Delta money anyway. The only way Delta would leave if they got bought out (highly unlikely) or if they go completely bankrupt and had to shut down. Atlanta's unemployment rate would shoot through the roof if they laid off 80K people.

Atlanta is too strategically located to be replaceable without another city spending tens of billions of dollars on their airport. Even if Delta went tits up, United or another airline would eagerly jump into the market.

Considering Atlanta's (auto) traffic it's probably negligible.

New Atlanta airport master plan eyes new gates, sixth runway


Blueprint of a proposal for expansion or reconfiguration of the south cargo ara at Hartsfield-Jackson airport.

Quote:
New gates, a doubling of parking capacity and a sixth runway highlight a new master plan for Atlanta’s airport unveiled by airport officials Wednesday.

Miguel Southwell, aviation general manager at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, and the airport’s chief planner outlined a series of short- and long-term improvements recommended in the new 20-year master plan during a presentation to the Atlanta City Council’s Transportation Committee.

Short-term projects, to be undertaken during the next two to three years, include replacing the north and south parking garages at the airport, built in the 1970s, with new garages. Increasing the number of floors in the new garages from the current four to eight or nine will allow the airport to double its on-site parking capacity, said Tom Nissalke, the airport’s planning director.

Also on the short-term to-do list are plans to expand the airport’s air cargo facilities. “What’s exciting is we’ll have an opportunity to make [the new buildings] state of the art and be able to handle the largest cargo aircraft out there,” Nissalke said.

Another short-term priority will be the construction of a new end-around taxiway on one of the runways, which will eliminate departing aircraft having to cross each other. Nissalke said the new taxiway will improve safety and reduce departure delays.

Farther out, the master plan calls for building additional gates to the east of the new Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal. Early projections are that the airport will need nine new gates by 2021.
