If it seems like the last few months have been busier than usual at Hartsfield-Jackson, it’s because they have been. Passenger numbers were up at the Airport in April and May, compared with the previous year, and year-to-date numbers also were higher than in 2011.
Among those reporting the boost in passengers were WSB-TV Channel 2 (not available online), WXIA-TV Channel 11, the Atlanta Business Chronicle (stories on April and May numbers) and the CAPA Centre for Aviation.
