Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport expects crowds over the Fourth of July holiday travel period, and warns travelers to get to the terminal early to allow enough time to get through security screening.
Atlanta airport general manager John Selden said an estimated 3.6 million people are expected to pass through the airport during the July 4 travel period running from Thursday June 27 through Monday July 8.
“Hartsfield-Jackson is going to be very, very, very busy,” Selden said at a veterans event held Tuesday at the airport in advance of Independence Day.
Travelers should get to the terminal two hours before domestic flights and three hours before international flights, Selden said.
