Brazillian delegation visits Hartsfield-Jackson
By DeAllous Smith

Airport officials recently met with an 18-person Brazilian delegation to share information about best practices in technology, logistics and transport infrastructure at the world’s busiest airport

The delegation, comprised of senior-level executives from several Brazilian companies, met with Hartsfield-Jackson’s staff to learn about the Airport’s cargo operations, capital improvement projects, business development opportunities and other aviation functions.

“We are pleased that this delegation decided to include Atlanta and Hartsfield-Jackson as part of its U.S. visit,” said Aviation General Manager Louis Miller. “It’s clear that the Airport is a major port-of-call for global companies wishing to conduct business in the City of Atlanta, and we are always honored to share our best practices with those interested in creating business opportunities in our region.”

During the visit, Airport and city officials discussed their integral roles in engaging the international business community to expand or create new footprints across metro Atlanta. The delegation also toured Hartsfield-Jackson’s perishables complex, its cargo facilities and Delta Air Lines’ cargo facility. .

Hartsfield-Jackson continues to build upon its strong global partnerships and international engagement programs. The Airport previously hosted delegations from England, China, France, Germany, Nigeria, South Africa and Singapore.
