Planning a trip through Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport this fall? You might notice some changes taking place around the world’s busiest and most efficient airport.
ATLNext, the airport’s $6 billion capital improvement program, will modernize Hartsfield-Jackson over the next 20 years. Simply put, we launched a total renovation to improve your entire travel and guest experience at ATL. It’s our goal to meet — and exceed — evolving passenger needs, and ATLNext is the solution.
The upgrades are comprised of six general project areas that will result in a complete facelift of ATL as you know it. You can look forward to expanded concourses, additional parking options, an updated airfield and more. In addition, a 4-star hotel, a mixed-use development with office space and a travel plaza are all on the docket in coming years.
Construction is underway on the centerpiece of the Domestic Terminal modernization: Two gigantic canopies spanning the North and South entrances will connect to both parking decks. Once completed in late 2018, the canopies will protect guests from the elements while providing a dramatic entrance to the airport. Totaling the length of nearly three football fields, they will transform the look and feel of the terminal, and even illuminate at night.

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
