Tuesday morning at our monthly all-team meeting, Kofi Smith, President and CEO of the Atlanta Airlines Terminal Corp., gave an update on ATLNext, Hartfield-Jackson International Airport’s new $6 billion, 20-year capital plan. The series of projects will boost capacity, renew and replace existing facilities and enhance the airport’s aesthetic appeal. The future development plans include modernizing the domestic terminal, expanding cargo facilities, replacing aging parking facilities with three new decks, adding a sixth runway and two new end-around taxiways, as well as construction of a four-star hotel, mixed-use development and travel plaza.
Hartsfield-Jackson is the largest employment center in the state of Georgia, with 448,696 direct, indirect and induced jobs and a total airport payroll of approximately $4.2 billion annually. Considered the “World’s Most Traveled Airport,” Hartsfield-Jackson generates an estimated $64 billion in revenue.
