Prospective concessionaires tour sites
More than 350 prospective concessionaires on April 6 toured the concourses and the international terminal to see the locations of concessions included in the new requests for proposals (RFPs).
Morning tours involved locations throughout the main terminal, with separate tours focusing on retail and on food and beverage locations. Airport employees explained what types of concessions would go into the available spaces and which locations were grouped together into packages for contracts.
In the afternoon, groups got to see the Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal, as guides explained what the building would look like when it’s finished and where the concessions would be located.

Concrete pumper truck prepared for departure
A Putzmeister M70 concrete pumper truck began its much-publicized journey to Japan at Hartsfield-Jackson, where it was loaded onto a massive Antonov AN-124 cargo transport aircraft on April 8 for a morning departure on April 9.
The Putzmeister M70 concrete pumper truck, which is the largest of its kind in the world, will be used to help stabilize the damaged nuclear plant at Fukushima, Japan. The 190,000-pound pump can be controlled remotely to distribute 210 cubic yards of concrete per hour.
