On May 16, 2012, the doors will swing open on the Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal at Atlanta’s airport. With its sweeping roof line, gentle metallic curves and glass façade, the international terminal will welcome millions of world travelers for decades to come.
Perfectly timed for an expected surge in international travel over the next decade, the Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal and its new concourse will connect with Concourse E to create a 40-gate international air travel complex.
This cutting-edge, LEED-certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) facility will be the new global gateway through which travelers from throughout the world will connect with more than 150 U.S. cities. For those traveling from the United States, the international terminal will be the gateway to nearly 80 destinations in more than 50 countries.
