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.
