Coolest New Airport Terminals
Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson, International Terminal
Opening Date: May 2012
The world’s busiest airport processed more than 92 million passengers in 2011, with more than 10 million of those on international flights. Anticipating a greater surge in international travel over the next few decades, the airport brass has been eagerly awaiting a new global gateway, which finally opened in the form of Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal. The 40-gate international air travel complex connects a new concourse F (and its 12 gates) with an existing smaller concourse.
Kudos For: A new system that makes picking up and rechecking bags between international and domestic flights obsolete; the change could save some passengers as much as 45 minutes in travel time.
