traffic at Hartsfield-Jackson on the rise
Hartsfield-Jackson has posted upswings in year-over-year cargo traffic for three consecutive months. Department of Aviation officials said cargo traffic in November 2009 was 3.53 percent higher than in November 2008; December 2009 traffic was 17.89 percent higher than the previous year; and January 2010 saw an increase of an estimated 9 percent over January 2009.
“It’s very encouraging to report three consecutive months
of rising cargo traffic, especially after experiencing one of the
worst global economic downturns in recent history,” said Aviation
General Manager Ben DeCosta. “We anticipate that 2010 will be
a year of ‘measured recovery’ throughout the industry.
We’re expecting a full recovery in 2012.”
“Hartsfield-Jackson has taken decisive steps to weather this
global downturn by seeking out new markets and finding ways to expand
our existing relationships,” said Warren Jones, Aviation development
