Hartsfield-Jackson welcomes Singapore Airlines Cargo
On September 24, Hartsfield-Jackson was part of an around-the-world freighter for the first time, as the inaugural flight of Singapore Airlines Cargo touched down. The weekly all-cargo service operates with a 747-400 freighter from Singapore to North America and travels to Europe and the Middle East before returning to Singapore.
Singapore Airlines Cargo is the latest addition to Hartsfield-Jackson’s
cargo operation, which creates 255,000 jobs and $44.7 billion in business
sales in the six-state Southeastern region (Georgia, Alabama, Florida,
North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee).
Hartsfield-Jackson leaders attend national conference

“The National Airports Conference is not just another airport

discussion format that lets airport executives discuss key issues
and exchange ideas.”
