venerdì 3 febbraio 2017 12:31:24

Mayor Kasim Reed announced today at his final State of the City breakfast that for the 19th consecutive year - and in every year during his tenure as mayor - Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) was named the world’s busiest airport. ATL served 104.171.935 passengers in 2016, an increase of 2,64% over 2015’s total. ATL also saw 898.356 aircraft operations in 2016, more than any other airport in the United States and, pending final tallies from international airports, likely to be more than any other airport worldwide.
“No other airport in the world serves more passengers or handles more aircraft in a more efficient manner than Hartsfield-Jackson” Mayor Reed said. “And now with our multibillion-dollar capital plan currently underway, ATL is positioned to continue leading the aviation industry in the decades ahead”.
“We are proud to be named the world’s busiest airport for the 19th consecutive year” said Airport general manager Roosevelt Council Jr. “This is thanks to the incredible work for our employees and Mayor reed’s leadership. As always, our continued focus will be on the safety and security of everyone at the airport and our efficient operations”.
ATL reached the 104.1 million total by hosting 92.696.320 domestic passengers while serving 11.475.615 international passengers.
