How Are the Terminals at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson Airport Laid Out?
At Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson airport, the terminal layout is made up of the Domestic Terminal and the International Terminal. The Domestic Terminal also is subdivided into the North and South Terminals and its concourses, which are T, A, B, C and D. The International Terminal or the Maynard Jackson Terminal has Concourses E and F.
The Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson airport consists of these different terminals and concourses, which occupy a space of nearly 6,800,000 square feet, notes iFly.com. The Domestic Terminal is situated on the west side of the airport complex and is for the arrival and departure of flights within the United States. Travelers on domestic flights can check in at either the North or South Terminal depending on which airline they are using.
Delta Airlines occupies the South Terminal, while Southwest Airlines and all other domestic carriers are located at the North Terminal. The Domestic Terminal connects with Concourse T and Concourse A through D, which are part of this terminal, and is used for both departures and arrivals. However, Concourses A through F extend from west to the east and are parallel to each other. Each concourse has varying numbers of gates such as Concourse C with 48 gates and Concourse D with 43 gates.
The Maynard Jackson Terminal is the international terminal, and Concourse E and F are used by international flights. This terminal is located on the east section of the airport. Customs and Immigration services are located at this terminal. Because Maynard Jackson Terminal is about one mile from the Domestic Terminal, passengers can use the underground plane train that connects these two facilities.
