• What is ATLNext?

    ATLNext is the Airport’s new development program. It consists of a series of projects over the next 20 years designed to boost capacity, renew and replace existing facilities, and enhance ATL’s aesthetic appeal. These projects, which fall under six general areas, will help secure Hartsfield-Jackson’s position as the world’s most traveled and efficient airport, and further bolster the Airport’s goal to provide the best possible customer service while meeting passengers’ changing needs. The work is projected to cost more than $6 billion, with nearly $1 billion to be spent in 2017 alone.

Constructing new air cargo warehouse facilities, aircraft parking and a staging/parking area for cargo vehicles.

Third-Party Development
