Hartsfield-Jackson earns top honors from ATRS again
By Staff Writers

For the ninth year in a row, the Air Transport Research Society (ATRS) has recognized Hartsfield-Jackson’s world leadership in airport efficiency.

The Global and North American Airport Efficiency Excellence Award is a reflection of Hartsfield-Jackson’s productivity, efficiency and low costs, including the lowest passenger costs for the airlines. Hartsfield-Jackson also was honored with the North American Airport Cost-Competitive Excellence Award.
                                                                                                    
“I am proud that the ATRS continues to recognize Hartsfield-Jackson as a global leader in efficiency and customer service excellence,” Aviation General Manager Louis Miller said. “We will continue to operate a first-class airport that meets the needs of airlines as well as our 250,000 daily passengers.” 

The awards, based on data compiled by the ATRS Global Airport Benchmarking Task Force, were announced June 30 at the 15th annual ATRS World Conference in Sydney, Australia.

The ATRS is the largest network of aviation academic researchers in the world and is part of the World Conference on Transport Research Society. The nonprofit organization uses cutting-edge research to understand airports’ best practices.

A goal is to provide a comprehensive, unbiased assessment and comparison of airport performance based on more than 30 measures in categories such as productivity and efficiency, unit cost competitiveness, aviation user charge levels, financial performance and customer service. The study covered more than 150 airports and airport groups worldwide.

Hartsfield-Jackson earned the ATRS Global Airport Efficiency Excellence Award in 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. The Airport won the ATRS’s North American award in 2005. For more information, go to www.atrsworld.org.
