ATLANTA, GA — As COVID-19 restrictions loosened in several regions after a year and half of the global pandemic situation, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is preparing for the increasing flights and passengers occurred during the Independence Day holiday between Wednesday, June 30 to Monday, July 5. The officials are working together with airport stakeholders and partners to keeping the flight safe for the passengers and providing pleasant and comfortable service through Atlanta International Airport.

"After a year of quarantine and limited travel, our passengers are back. We now stand at approximately seventy percent of our pre-COVID daily flight operations and passenger throughput levels," said Airport General Manager Balram "B" Bheodari. "We are thrilled to see our passengers return and we are well prepared for the increase in volume."

"We've prepared for and are expecting heavier than normal passenger volumes for the upcoming holiday weekend, with Thursday, Friday and Monday showing the highest numbers," said Robert Spinden, TSA Federal Security Director for Georgia. "We urge passengers to be inside the airport two hours prior to their scheduled departure time and to thoroughly check their bags for prohibited items before heading to the airport."

During the holiday travel period, admitted passengers are advised to wear masks during the journey and in-flight areas (airports, public facilities, buses, and more), arrived at the airport two hours earlier from the departure time, and properly prepared items and packages brought for the trip to ease the screening process.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport also provided with 29,000 parking spaces at eleven lots: Economy, Daily and Hourly next to North and South Terminals; International Hourly; International Park and Ride; ATLWest; ParkATL Select; and ParkRide C.
