Atlanta Airport ATL Covid19 Report Featuring Sir Elton John!
VIDEO | Atlanta Airport is opening up. Learn about how Atlanta's Hartsfield Jackson Airport has been impacted by Covid-19.
Report from Atlanta Airport About the Impact of the Pandemic
✈️ Atlanta, nicknamed "Hotlanta", just got even hotter. It's the city famous for being the home of CNN, Coca-Cola, the CDC, and now Sir Elton John.
Andrew recently visited Atlanta's Hartsfield Jackson Airport to see how it's been impacted by Covid-19.
If there's one place you'd expect to see a significant upswing in travellers right now, it would be Atlanta Airport here in Georgia. Officially, the world's busiest airport and the largest hub, in a normal year it processes 110 million passengers on more than a thousand flights a day.
Sadly, right now, the situation is pretty dire, with 88 percent of flights cancelled, which sounds bad enough, but that's actually up from the worst point in the pandemic when 97 percent of flights were cancelled.
And of the 347 shops and restaurants here, three hundred and ten of them are closed. And that's certainly reflected here in the international terminal, where the one choice of restaurant is PeiWei, the Asian fast food outlet.
The airport's general manager, was recently quoted as saying he expects the recovery to take between two and five years. It's really sad to see all these outlets closed, not to mention all the unemployment.
But it's not all doom and gloom. Things are heading in the right direction, and although the recovery is slow, there is still a recovery.
