Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International serves more than 100 million passengers in a year

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in the USA broke a new passenger record in 2015 after it became the first airport in history to cater for more than 100 million passengers in a year.

To mark the occasion, the airport held a water cannon salute for the Delta Air Lines flight from Gulfport, Mississippi, which carried its millionth passenger.

Larry Kendrick, an industrial construction worker from Biloxi in Iowa was greeted by airport officials before being given a 2015 Nissan Altima, two Delta One round-trip tickets for any destination in the world, a US$500 gift card, and a set of wireless headphones from InMotion Entertainment group.

Kasim Reed, Mayor of Atlanta, said, “We are making aviation history. As we move into 2016, it is our commitment to maintain our position as the world’s most traveled airport, the most efficient, and soon we will start competing to be the most sustainable.”

Miguel Southwell, general manager for Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, said, “What a year it has been. Without Delta we simply would not be standing here today.”
