According to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport’s Website:
For the 14th consecutive year, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has earned the title of world’s busiest airport. Preliminary data indicate that passenger traffic increased by more than 3.5 percent from 2010 to 2011, making 2011 the busiest year ever for the Airport. The 2011 total of 92.39 million passengers is 2.6 percent higher than the previous record of 90 million passengers, set in 2008.
“We’re growing faster than the North American average, which is no easy feat during these tough economic times,” Aviation General Manager Louis Miller said. “With the opening of the international terminal this spring, we’re looking forward to continued growth this year and beyond.”
