Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport
Student’s Name
University Affiliation



Airports play critical roles in promoting globalization. They form the channels for cultural
integration, international trade, and increased interconnectedness. Whereas some airports service
both domestic and international travelers, others operate only at the local and regional airspaces.
Many people enjoy traveling via airports and treasure the experience at various airports. The
problem is that most of these travelers and guests do not understand how the airports operate.
Worse still, some airports are still operating at high levels of inefficiency because they do not
have the right capacity, adequate staff, and international standards of aviation security.
Therefore, this paper bridges this gap by analyzing operations at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta
International Airport, paying particular attention to the process of screening people, past
incidences and accidents, actions taken to prevent them, and ways through which the Airport can
improve efficiency.
About The Airport
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is a public airport in Atlanta that serves
both domestic and foreign travelers. It is also known as Atlanta Airport, Hartsfield-Jackson, and
Hartsfield. The hyphenated name is derived from the names of two former mayors of Atlanta
Maynard H. Jackson and William B. Hartsfield. Hartsfield constructed the airport in its earlier
stages, while Jackson supervised the construction of the main terminal that was completed in
1980 (Boudreau, Gerardi, Freeman, & Dokka, 2006). The airport is situated in a place that once
served as the Atlanta Speedway. Coca-Cola founder Asa Candler who once served as Atlanta
mayor built the Speedway as a racecourse. The location was primarily comprised of swampy
meadows at the headwaters of the Flint River and farmland. The developers of the airport
selected the site because it one of the notable low-lying areas in Atlanta (Watkins, Rau, &



Boudreau, 2008). The airport occupies 287 acres of land, which Candler accumulated from 14
various properties with the help of the Atlanta Automobile Association. The tract of land was
purchased for about $ 78,000 in 1909. The initial track was referred to as Candler Raceway,
Atlanta Raceway, Atlanta Motor Speedway, and Automobile Speedway. It cost $ 400,000 to
construct and was officially opened on November 9, 1909. The design of the current Atlanta
Airport resembles the layout of the original racetrack.

The Airport hosts many airlines both local and international. It is the home to Delta Air
Lines, Air Tran Airways, and ExpressJet. Delta Air Lines, Inc. is headquartered at HJAIA from
which operates its airlines with more than 5,400 flights per day to over 300 destination in 64
countries on six continents (Watkins et al., 2008). The airline flew close to 60% of passengers
from the Airport in early 2011. Other airlines at the Airport include Aeroméxico, Aeroméxico
Connect, Air Canada Express, Air France, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Envoy Air,
British Airways, US Airways, US Airways Express, Spirit Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Silver
Airways, Lufthansa, Korean Air, KLM Cityhopper, Delta Connection, and Frontier Airlines
(Boudreau et al., 2006). The Airport services international flights to South America, Asia, North
America, Africa, Europe, and Central America.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (HJAIA) has been voted the busiest
airport in the world. There is no doubt the many world destinations qualify the Airport to be the
world’s busiest ever. For example, it serviced more than 102 million passengers in 2017. It also
handled over 105 million passengers in 2016, thereby recording the highest passenger traffic in
airports history (Watkins et al., 2008). Therefore, Atlanta Airport ranks the busiest among Dubai,
Tokyo, Beijing, and Los Angeles. This performance is because it serves as the connecting airport



for the larger U.S. Besides, its strategic location contributes to the industrious nature of the
Airport as it is within a two-hour flight for a vast majority of the U.S. population (80%) (Watkins
et al., 2008). Additionally, it connects flights that serve 150 destinations within the U.S. On
average, the Airport handles 2,500 flights and 276,000 passengers every day. The consensus
view is that Hartsfield-Jackson is more than an airport. It is also serves as a destination to people
since it offers commercial venues for meeting, guest shopping, dining, and service needs.
Other Services at the Airport
The busy nature of the Airport implies that it provides other services to guests for hold
meetings in its facilities and wait for scheduled flights. As stated previously, Atlanta Airport is
also a destination for tourists because of its landscape (Sprong, McCrabb, & Mayer, 2006). The
Airport has a wide range of art works throughout its terminals and concourses. For example,
there is a virtual walk through a forest located in the underground walkway between Concourses
B and A as well as huge hanging sculptures within Concourse B and the international terminal
(Watkins et al., 2008; Boudreau et al., 2006). ...
