Passing through Atlanta

   Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport handled over 901,000 flight operations in its 2019 fiscal year.  The airport uplifted air cargo and mail at increasing amounts since 2015, carrying more than 676,700 metric tons in the fiscal year of 2019. In the same time frame, the airport reported a passenger traffic of around 107.4 million passengers. 


Airports: a tourist destination? 

   In addition to providing passengers and airlines a connecting point, airports are also commercial and retail centers that offer a wider variety of duty-free and travel-related goods or services. Airports provide over half of duty-free and travel retail sales worldwide as of 2018. Airport revenue from non-flying activities comprises a large portion of yearly income; for example, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport's top two operating revenue streams were parking and building and land rental. Internationally, the leading airport groups include Aeroports de Paris, France, and Aena Aeropuertos, Spain, both of whom had revenue of over five billion U.S. dollars.
