Hartsfield-Jackson Celebrates T-North Extension Opening

ATLANTA, GA — Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) has officially opened its Concourse T-North Extension at a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

“Adding [the T-North extension] to our infrastructure simply strengthens our position as a global gateway,” Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens said. “The extension will enhance the customer experience. ... So I'm happy to say that this is yet another example of how we are moving Atlanta forward together.”

The extension — made necessary to accommodate an increasing number of passengers at ATL — has more than 35,000 square feet of concourse and concessions space. Additionally, new gate areas (hold rooms), boarding bridges, apron-level tenant spaces, and airfield apron pavement with hydrant fueling are included in the space. Its new five Aircraft Design Group III gates, T17-T21, have the capacity for aircraft with a wingspan between 79 and 118 feet. These gates will primarily be used by United Airlines.

"The T-North Five Gate Extension Project will increase efficiency as we are able to accommodate an ever-growing number of travelers at the world’s busiest and most efficient airport,” ATL General Manager Balram Bheodari said.

To further advance the airport’s environmental stewardship, the T-North Five Gate Extension project received LEED Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
