The Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal opens May 16. Planning, design and construction of the international terminal project created about 3,000 jobs. Nearly 1,000 jobs are expected to be created to operate and maintain the 1.2 million-square-foot facility. Construction began in summer 2008. The facility connects with the existing international concourse, creating a world-class, 40-gate air travel complex. The international terminal will eliminate the need for Atlanta-bound passengers to recheck their baggage. Passengers will access the international terminal via I-75 at Exit 239. More than 3,500 parking spaces will be available. The ticketing hall will feature 64 self-service check-in kiosks and 80 ticketing counters. Click here to see a video update of the Maynard H.
