Simply the Best! Hartsfield-Jackson voted no.1 for amenities and more

ATLANTA – Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is the best U.S. airport for passengers searching for dining, amenities and business traveler services, according to Travel Leaders Group’s annual Travel Trends Survey. Hartsfield-Jackson also soared to the top of the list as the best place for passengers with a connecting flight.

“Hartsfield-Jackson is more than a busy aviation hub. For many travelers, it’s a destination place to purchase a last-minute gift, enjoy a quiet meal, or simply unwind with select spa services before boarding their flight,” said Louis Miller, aviation general manager. “And, as the world’s busiest airport, we understand the importance of providing the best services for both business and leisure travelers.”

Travel Leaders Group owners, managers and other travel experts throughout the United States were surveyed by the organization. Travel Leaders Group reported 40.5 percent of the agents ranked Hartsfield-Jackson as their best choice for connecting flights while 42.2 percent gave the facility top honors for business traveler services.

“This distinction not only reflects our dedication toward meeting the needs of our passengers, but also symbolizes our commitment to providing travelers with quality amenities and a memorable experience,” said Miller.

To further enhance the travel experience, Hartsfield-Jackson unveiled a new Thanks Again program which allows consumers to earn frequent-flier miles for parking, shopping or dining at participating merchants at the facility. Airport officials also announced they are taking steps toward offering customers free Wi-Fi access as early as fall 2013.
