Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport opens the brand new international terminal today. It will be known as Terminal F.
The importance of the new terminal can’t really be overstated. Perhaps an indication of that, the opening has garnered nationwide attention c.f.: USA Today, “Marketplace” from APM etc. I wouldn’t be surprised if by Sunday The New York Times covers the opening.
Closer to home, The AJC reports on the projected impact of the new terminal and the path the terminal took to completion.
Personally I’m looking forward to the new terminal’s opening and will hopefully(?) use it soon. The current international arrival system is godawful and one of the least-efficient setups in the U.S. and possibly the world.
If you are on that first flight from ATL to Narita, or any other flights today/this week, let us know how it goes in the comments.
PS: So the title was a little misleading. “The Big Day” arrived about a month ago. Read all about it here in the greatest Peach Pundit thread ever, of all time.
