Hartsfield-Jackson hosts Chinese airport officials
By DeAllous Smith

Leaders from airports worldwide frequently visit Hartsfield-Jackson to gain knowledge of best practices and ways to accommodate growth. Among the delegations to visit the Airport recently was a group of officials from China’s Chongqing Airport on July 23.

The Chongqing group came to learn how Hartsfield-Jackson officials manage daily operations and develop plans for future growth as well as how they successfully opened the Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal in May.
                                                                                      
During the program, Aviation General Manager Louis Miller and members of the Department of Aviation’s senior management team spoke about Hartsfield-Jackson’s importance to Atlanta’s economy and to the aviation community. Airport leaders also shared the best business, planning and design practices that serve as catalysts for continuing economic development.

The visiting airport officials also enjoyed a catered lunch and toured the Airport’s baggage handling system and the airfield.

China’s National Development and Reform Commission recently approved a proposal to build a new terminal and a third runway at Chongqing Airport. After completion, the Chinese airport will have 700,000 square meters of terminal space and will be among the world’s 15 largest airports, with an annual passenger capacity of 60 million.
