Hartsfield Jackson is currently embarking on an expansion plan to handle a projected demand of 121,000,000 passengers by the mid-to-late-2010s. With that number, it can remain the world's busiest airport.

Quote:
In 1999, Hartsfield–Jackson's leadership established the Development Program: "Focus On the Future" involving multiple construction projects with the intention of preparing the airport to handle a projected demand of 121 million passengers in 2015. The program was originally budgeted at $5.4 billion over a ten-year period, but due to project delays and increased construction costs, the total is now projected at over $9 billion.

with the phenomenal growth rates of airports like beijing, dubai or shanghai it is only a matter of time when atlanta is going to be taken over. having a capacity of 121 million doesn't mean, that the capacity is going to be used.

it is remarkable though, that atlanta was able to hold on to the number 1 title for so long.

Dubai isn't even in the top 10 yet, if I'm right.
Beijing could surpass ATL w/ it's double digit growth rates, but we'll just wait and see. I don't see it happening till around or after 2015 though.

I'm sure ATL will get more traffic as the economic recovery grains traction.

No monorail w/ that project? Interior of new terminal is alright. Looks quite dull, if you ask me. Then again I'm just picky with that seeing as DIA--beautiful terminal and concourses--is my favorite airport in the US!

ATL | Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport

ATL Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport











Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport (IATA: ATL, ICAO: KATL, FAA LID: ATL), known locally as Atlanta Airport, Hartsfield Airport, and Hartsfield–Jackson, is located seven miles (11 km) south of the central business district of Atlanta, Georgia, United States. It has been the world's busiest airport by passenger traffic and number of landings and take-offs since 1999, serving nearly 90 million passengers per year. The airport is the primary hub of AirTran Airways, Delta Air Lines, and Delta Connection partner Atlantic Southeast Airlines; the Delta hub is the world's largest airline hub. Delta Air Lines flew 59.01% of passengers from the airport in February of 2011, AirTran flew 17.76%, and Atlantic Southeast Airlines flew 13.86%. The airport has 195 gates domestic and international.

Hartsfield–Jackson held its ranking as the world's busiest airport in 2010, both in terms of passengers and number of flights, by accommodating 89,331,682 passengers (240,000 passengers daily) and 970,235 flights. Many of the nearly one million flights are domestic flights from within the United States where Atlanta serves as a major hub for travel throughout the Southeastern United States.

Hartsfield–Jackson International Airport has international service to North America, South America, Central America, Europe, Asia, and Africa.

The airport is located mostly in unincorporated areas in Fulton and Clayton counties; the city limits of Atlanta, College Park, and Hapeville extend to the airport grounds. The airport is served by MARTA's Red/Gold rail line.


Terminals




Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport has terminal and concourse space totaling 5,800,000-square-foot (539,000 m2).The airport has two terminals where passengers check-in and claim bags, the North Terminal and the South Terminal. The two terminals are part of a larger building. The portions of the building between the two terminals include the Atrium, which is a large, open seating area featuring concessionaires, a bank, conference rooms, an interfaith chapel, and offices on the upper floors with the main security checkpoint, the Ground Transportation Center and a Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) train station on other levels.



Six parallel concourse buildings are used for passenger boarding. The first concourse is connected to the main terminal, and is known as Concourse T (for Terminal). The remaining five concourses are designated successively by distance from the terminal as Concourses A, B, C, D, and E. Concourse E replaced Concourse T as the international terminal when it opened in 1994 in time for the 1996 Summer Olympic Games, which were held in Atlanta . International passengers who arrive in Atlanta are subjected to a security re-check after clearing customs due to the fact that the facility exits into the concourse instead of the main terminal lobby. The concourses are connected by an underground Transportation Mall, which begins at the main terminal and passes under the center of each concourse. At one time, there was a second underground walkway between Concourses B and C which connected the north end of the two concourses and made it possible to transfer without returning to the center of the concourse. This was constructed for Eastern Airlines, who occupied these two terminals. This is now closed and the entrance at Concourse B has been replaced by a bank of arrival/departure monitors.




Maynard Holbrook Jackson, Jr. International Terminal


New terminal exterior rendering

In July 2003, then-Atlanta mayor Shirley Franklin announced a new terminal to be named for Maynard Holbrook Jackson, Jr.. The new international terminal would be built on the east side of the airport near International Concourse E, on a site that had been occupied by air cargo facilities and the midfield control tower. It would add twelve new gates able to hold wide-body jets, which can be converted to sixteen narrow-body gates, as well as new check-in desks and a baggage claim area solely for international carriers. Additionally, the international terminal would have its own parking lot just for international passengers with over 1,100 spaces. Arriving international passengers whose final destination is Atlanta would be able to keep possession of their luggage as they proceed to exit the airport. Currently, such passengers must "recheck" their luggage and clear security at Concourse E. Then, they must enter the underground Transportation Mall to reach the main terminal where they must "reclaim" their luggage. The new terminal will be connected to Terminal E by the people mover tram and will also have ground transportation access via I-75.

The new terminal was slated to open in 2006; however, time and cost overruns led Airport General Manager Ben DeCosta to cancel the design contract in August 2005. In early 2007, the General Manager awarded a new design contract on the new international terminal to Atlanta Gateway Designers (AGD). Construction is well underway. Estimates place the terminal's cost at $1.4 billion, and it is expected to open in April 2012.

Also scheduled to be completed after the new international terminal and concourse is a new terminal south of the current terminals. The project is currently known as the South Gate Complex, and is expected to include up to 70 gates at an estimated cost of approximately $1.8 billion. The new terminal will be connected to the main terminal by an expanded automated people mover system. When the South Gate Complex is completed, it is expected that most domestic carriers other than Delta will move to the SGC. This would leave Delta as the sole domestic carrier at the current terminal, which it will share with its SkyTeam partners. Since the SGC is not planned to have Customs and Border Protection facilities, international arrivals other than pre-cleared flights will also continue to use the current terminal (specifically British Airways and Lufthansa). Airbus A380 service is scheduled to begin once the new terminal opens.

If that new International Terminal is completed, can the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport be the first airport to have an annual capacity of 100 million passengers per year?

Aerotropolis Development at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Airport






Aerotropolis Atlanta is a mixed-use development zoned for 6.5 million square feet of Class-A office, hotel, conference center, retail, data center, business park, and the parking facility. The former 2.8 million square foot production facility for the Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable will have a global focus to capitalize on Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport’s future international terminal. It promises to be the touchstone for Atlanta’s Southside that Atlantic Station has been for Midtown Atlanta.

The site, purchased from Ford on June 11, 2008, is less than one mile from the new Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Terminal, expected to be completed in 2013-15. And the development’s proposed, partially covered 4,000-space parking lot will be one of the closest parking locations to the new International Terminal, expected to serve more than 13 million passengers within seven years.






Porsche USA at Aerotropolis:

May 12, 2011

Porsche Cars North America (PCNA) today announced it will build a new headquarters in Atlanta, the city it has called home for thirteen years. The new complex will be located in the “Aerotropolis Atlanta” development site, near the brand new International Terminal at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. It will be comprised of modern office facilities for a workforce that will eventually number 400 employees, including a Technical Service and Training Center, as well as a leading-edge Customer Experience Center that will feature a handling road course to show-off the capabilities of Porsche’s industry-leading vehicles. Groundbreaking is planned for this fall with the move-in date scheduled for the second half of 2013.

“The unparalleled nature of the Porsche ownership experience absolutely deserves an equally unique home. That is what we’ll create with our new headquarters – a concept completely new to the U.S. automotive industry, and one that delivers our brand and product experience to our employees, dealers and customers alike,” said Detlev von Platen, President and CEO of Porsche Cars North America.

“Our new American headquarters will allow us to finally bring together all our major sales, after sales and financial services capacities, thus making us an even stronger organization. It also sends a strong message to our dealers and our customers that we believe in the strength of the U.S. market and its future growth,” von Platen explained. “At the same time, this decision demonstrates our commitment to the State of Georgia and the City of Atlanta to remain a vital part of this vibrant region.”

The decision to stay in Atlanta was the result of a thorough, more than one-year long search and evaluation process that spanned metropolitan Atlanta and several out-of-state sites. The new headquarters will not only be home to PCNA, but also to Porsche Financial Services, Inc., and Porsche Business Services, Inc. which are both currently located in Lisle, Illinois. Other Porsche businesses will also be included, building a solid foundation for further expansion of Porsche’s largest market worldwide.

Love Hartsfield Jackson with the exception that Concourses A-D are starting to show their age and the renovation of them needs to start before the South Gate Complex!

Hartsfield-Jackson expects busy holiday weekend

By Kelly Yamanouchi
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport expects more than 2 million passengers to use the airport for the busy Fourth of July holiday period.
.
Hartsfield-Jackson, the world's busiest airport, said the Fourth of July period is the busiest travel week of the year.

From June 30 through July 6, the airport expects passenger counts to be up nearly 2 percent from the comparable period last year. That's in line with passenger growth at the airport for the year to date.

Separately, Hartsfield-Jackson said Thursday it won the Global Airport Efficiency Excellence Award from the Air Transport Research Society, the ninth consecutive year it has been recognized by the group for its efficiency.
