Capital Improvement Program Overview
Following a comprehensive strategic planning process and approval from the Atlanta
City Council, in 2000 the Department of Aviation embarked on what has become a $6
billion-plus Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The objective of the CIP is to support
the Airport’s overall mission by planning, designing, building and maintaining substantial
infrastructure facilities in a concerted effort to:
- Meet projected growth in domestic and international travel demand
- Reduce flight delays that affect passengers
- Increase airfield and terminal capacity
- Enhance overall customer service
- Grow DOA business opportunities
