What's in store for 2009

By November, Hartsfield-Jackson's state-of-the-art Consolidated Rental Car (CONRAC) facility will open for business. When it's up and running, CONRAC will house all Airport rental car agencies.

"This major initiative is the direct result of local and state agencies and contractors working together to build a convenient, state-of-the-art facility," said Dan Molloy, assistant general manager for capital development. "It will improve the experience for the millions of business and leisure travelers to Atlanta."

More than 70 percent of construction is complete on the 67.5-acre facility, located five minutes from the Airport. CONRAC will be connected to the passenger terminal via an Automated People Mover (APM) train system. The APM, which will also make stops at the Georgia International Convention Center and a new hotel complex, can move more than 10,000 passengers an hour to and from the passenger terminal along the 1.6 mile-long elevated track.

Other ongoing initiatives include:

  • Completing the Airport's retail renaissance and opening more than 70 new stores such as Sean John, Lacoste, Brooks Brothers, Mori Luggage and more.

  • Translating the Airport's Web site into Spanish, French, German and Chinese.

  • Introducing a sustainable recycling program that will drastically reduce the Airport's waste stream.

  • Completing the already-successful security checkpoint expansion program by upgrading the escalators on Concourse T.
