YouTube Channel Showcases Airport Personality
By A.B. Snedeker

What do rental cars, Despereaux - the world's bravest mouse - and holiday music have in common? They are all featured on Hartsfield-Jackson's new YouTube channel. The Airport is launching its new video site at www.youtube.com/atlantahartsfield where it's showing off its personality.

The official YouTube channel is also designed to inform viewers about Airport programs, construction, special events and services, while sharing accurate and up-to-date information about the world's busiest airport.

"AtlantaHartsfield" is the user name and features an animation of the new Consolidated Rental Car (CONRAC) facility, which is set to open in November. CONRAC's people mover cars are also featured. Another video highlights a recent visit to Hartsfield-Jackson by Despereaux. The floppy-eared costumed mouse character was in-house to promote the Universal Pictures release, "The Tale of Despereaux."

Music from the Airport's holiday series is also on the site, including local swing band Kingsized and holiday carolers Toast of Christmas Past.

The new YouTube channel is maintained by the Airport's Public Affairs Office and is part of an ongoing effort to leverage new media outlets in order to share information about the Airport's mission, services and benefits. As it develops, the site will feature content about customer service programs, parking, concessions, security and other relevant information aimed to improve the passenger experience. Be sure to check out the channel regularly.
