Maynard H. Jackson International Terminal

This project, called the "Global Gateway to the World" by the City of Atlanta officials will serve as the new 1.2 million square-foot international passenger terminal and concourse facility at the Atlanta airport. The $1.4 billion facility includes 12 international gates and other additions that will enhance passenger customer service.
