Atlanta Airport Makes History and Welcomes Passenger No. 100 Million

Being that we are based in the Atlanta area, we like to keep up with the latest from our city. Thanks to our sources over at Biz Journal, we were able to catch up on the latest update surrounding the world’s busiest airport — Hartsfield Jackson International Airport Atlanta.

Passenger No. 100 million passed through Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on Sunday, pushing the airport to a new record for the number of passengers served in one year. The airport almost hit the 100 million milestone last year, serving 96 million passengers. Hartsfield Jackson broke the record Sunday when Larry Kendrick of Biloxi, Miss., stepped off his flight.

Kendrick was awarded a Nissan vehicle, two round-trip tickets to anywhere in the world from Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines Inc. (NYSE: DAL) and a $500 gift card.  See, it does pay to travel!

Atlanta’s airport is the first to serve 100 million passengers in a year.
