The flight surveyed and documented runway pavement for future maintenance and ATLNext construction. The data captured in the flights will be combined with topographical information and holographic imaging to identify needed maintenance and plan for the new

ATL is making more room for the world’s largest passenger airliner. Gate F3/F3A is undergoing an expansion to accommodate the Airbus A380, a double-deck, wide-body airplane that can seat up to 600 passengers. This expansion will not only allow for an A380 on Concourse F, but it also will greatly shorten the walking distance to Immigration and Customs for passengers. Currently, Hartsfield-Jackson has one gate that accommodates the A380: E3/E3A. However, arriving international passengers at

Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport

Look forward to faster security lines in the future, with minimal impact on wait times now. Improving the security screening process at Hartsfield-Jackson is a fundamental part of ATLNext. We're boosting efficiency (and ultimately decreasing security wait times!) of the passenger screening process by adding 20 new Automated Screening Lanes (ASLs) to the security checkpoints at ATL. This, coupled with the work we've already started to expand the main checkpoint, should help you breeze through
