Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Airport late and over budget, as Delta goes international

Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL) may

be the busiest airport in the world, in terms of passenger numbers, but its

multibillion-dollar expansion programme is falling behind. A Hartsfield-Jackson

Development Programme/City of Atlanta Auditor Office audit of the construction

programme at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport recently found

it had exceeded initial cost estimates by more than USD640 million, and concludes

that five of the eight projects are behind schedule. Projects include a fifth

runway (completed in 2006), an international terminal (in design phase) and

a rental car facility (under construction).
