Hartsfield-Jackson in the news

The Airport and City of Atlanta hosted The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) International Air Cargo Forum and Exhibition in October, and the event drew coverage from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Atlanta Business Chronicle (which also published an opinion piece about how hosting the conference demonstrated Atlanta’s growing prestige in the cargo industry) and Aviation.ca.

The TIACA conference featured several important speeches and announcements that were newsworthy in themselves. U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood was a featured speaker on the opening day of the event, and his involvement and support for increasing air cargo were covered by GlobalAtlanta, the SaportaReport blog and the Handy Shipping Guide.

The conference also brought announcements about cargo-related developments planned at Hartsfield-Jackson. The start of service by Air Cargo Germany at the Airport was covered by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Atlanta Business Chronicle, GlobalAtlanta, Air Cargo World, CBS Atlanta, WSB-TV Channel 2, WXIA-TV Channel 11’s Hapeville community site and WSB-AM 750 (not available online).

While not specifically about the TIACA conference, a piece in Air Cargo World offered an in-depth analysis of Atlanta’s cargo operation and how geography and infrastructure play roles in it.
