Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport announced plans for a $430 million modernization of its domestic passenger terminal and concourses on Tuesday.

The project, which is expected to take three years, will give the airport’s domestic terminals a “new, fresh, modern look” more in line with the design elements used in the airport’s international terminal, which is a newer facility.

The work, which will cover the domestic terminal and Concourses A, B, C, D, and T, is expected to cost $430 million.  In conjunction with the project, the airport plans to replace roughly half of its aging jet bridges, at a cost of $62 million.

Delta Air Lines is the sole carrier occupying Concourses A and B, and uses part of Concourse C along with Southwest Airlines.  Airlines operating out of Concourse D include Alaska, Delta, Frontier, Spirit, and US Airways.  Concourse T is used by American Airlines, Delta, and United Airlines.

The first flight into Hartsfield-Jackson, then known as Candler Field, was in 1926.  Today it is one of the busiest in the world and also has more gates, 207, than any other airport.
