Delta Improves Customer Travel Experience with the Opening of the New Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal in Atlanta

Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) flight 295 to Tokyo-Narita will become the

first flight to depart Concourse F at the new Maynard H. Jackson Jr.

International Terminal when it opens tomorrow at Atlanta’s

Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. Shortly after flight 295’s

departure, Delta flight 177 from Dublin, Ireland will be the first

arrival on the new concourse.

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design-certified

international terminal complex is the new doorway for customers arriving

in departing from Atlanta for international destinations. The new

Concourse F, which adjoins the existing concourse E, includes 12 gates.

Delta from Atlanta today operates more than 1,000 daily departures to

208 destinations, including nonstop service to 65 international


Inside Concourse F, the newest Delta Sky Club® features seating and

ample space for more than 300 guests, world-class amenities including

eight shower suites, multiple work areas and art designed to capture the

spirit of Delta’s international destinations. The Club also offers The

Luxury Bar with premium wines, champagne and spirits available for

purchase. Windows across the Club offer mezzanine-level views of Delta’s

operations in Atlanta.

The new terminal eliminates the need for Atlanta-destined passengers to

recheck their baggage. Departing customers will access the international

terminal via I-75 at Exit 239. Shuttle service connects to the domestic

terminal, domestic parking facilities and MARTA train service to

downtown Atlanta. The Plane Train and pedestrian walkway have both been

extended to offer access to the Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International

Terminal. Additional information is available at

“The new international terminal is Atlanta’s new front door to the

world,” said Richard Anderson, Delta’s chief executive officer. “On

behalf of Delta people worldwide, I want to congratulate aviation

general manager Louis Miller, Mayor Kasim Reed and the City of Atlanta

for seeing this project to its completion and thank them for continuing

that strong partnership Delta has had with the airport and city for more

than 70 years.”

“Delta’s contribution to the new terminal and concourse is part of a

more than $3 billion investment in facilities, products and technology

in the air and on the ground,” said Anderson. “In addition to this

premier international gateway in Atlanta, renovations and expansions to

Delta airport facilities also are underway in New York, Seattle, Los

Angeles and Salt Lake City.”

As Delta becomes the leading airline in New York, work is underway on a

$160 million renovation at La Guardia Airport to support 100 new daily

departures including a new Delta Sky Club, chef-driven dining options

and an enclosed walkway behind security connecting Terminals C and D. A

$1.2 billion expansion of Terminal 4 at New York-JFK will house nine new

international wide-body gates and a flagship Delta Sky Club when it

opens in spring 2013.

Delta’s facilities at the Los Angeles International Airport are being

renewed as part of that airport’s $4 billion overhaul, including a new

baggage system, better customs processing facilities and refreshed food

and beverage. At Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, a key portal to

Asia, Delta is working with the city to renovate the lobby into a more

open format for smoother check-in and baggage drop. Delta also is

supporting a $1.8 billion terminal redevelopment program with Salt Lake

City that will, over the next ten years, include a new terminal,

renovation of 34 existing gates and a new 40 gate concourse, as well as

other facility infrastructure enhancements.
