ATL Concourse D Midpoint Expansion


Known as “the world’s busiest airport,” Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport, has sustained unprecedented growth over the past 20 years. The preeminent aviation hub in the southeast, Hartsfield services an average of over 85 million passengers a year. 

Built decades ago when planes were smaller and there was less demand for traveler services, Concourse D was narrower than other concourses at the airport and had less space for concessions. The expansion of the concourse’s midpoint was aimed at correcting issues of congestion, cramped quarters and lengthy lines for escalators and elevators to and from the people-mover train. With this Concourse D Midpoint expansion, passengers arriving on the Concourse D level from the below grade Plane Train, will now experience a multi-story clear height grand central hub with ample retail, concessions, and other amenities that provides ample circulation space for travelers.
