Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is the best airport for travelers with connecting flights, according to a new nationwide survey of travel professions.
In the survey, released this week by Travel Leaders Group, Hartsfield, the world’s busiest airport, was also named the best for amenities and dining while also topping the list with the “best services for business travelers.”
In total, 40.5 percent of respondents named the Atlanta airport as the nation’s best for people with flight connections. Coincidentally, the Atlanta airport was also named by 33 percent of respondents as the worst, ranking it third on the list travelers with connections should avoid; Chicago’s O’Hare topped that list.
“Major airports have transformed considerably in the last decade to accommodate the shift in the amount of time travelers spend there. More amenities have been added to appeal to travelers – and in many cases, to occupy their time – while they wait for their flights,” Travel Leaders Group CEO Barry Liben said in a release.
Charlotte Douglas International Airport, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport and Detroit Metro Airport rounded out the survey’s five best. New York’s JFK, Hartsfield, New York’s LaGuardia and Newark Liberty International rounded out top five worst.
