Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is the busiest in the world when it comes to passenger traffic. In December 2015, it saw more than 8 million passengers, seeing over 250,000 passengers a day on average, which means catering for almost 2,500 arrivals and departures a day.
The airport itself is made up of five runways, two terminals – one domestic and one international –, seven concourses and 207 gates. Within the terminal you’ll find 263 outlets including 114 food and beverage, 90 retail, 56 service and 3 duty free. The airport creates employment for 58,000 employees throughout the airport and Atlanta itself, making it the largest employer in the state of Georgia. It is also the hub for Delta Air Lines, who fly around 60% of passengers from the airport along with many other low-cost airlines.
