With the year drawing to a close, Business Traveler is announcing its top picks for the Business Traveler Awards for 2023. This year, the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta has been named the number one airport in North America.
Business Traveler reports, “The world’s busiest airport—serving 275,000 passengers daily and more than 100 million passengers in a single year—ATL reigns as North America’s best for the second consecutive year.” Business Traveler continues, “Its close partnership with Delta and its relentless efficiency continues to make it a passenger favorite.”
Travelers–both Atlanta locals and visitors alike–know that ‘relentless efficiency’ is a great way to describe the Atlanta airport. For an airport that serves several hundred thousand passengers every day, the airport runs mostly smoothly and keeps traffic to a manageable amount every day.
Atlanta is never complacent with a first place win, and refuses to rest on its laurels, however.
GPB News reports, from a statement by Atlanta mayor, Andre Dickens, “‘Even as ATL continues to receive recognition for its world-class service, the City of Atlanta is constantly working to improve operations and passenger experience… From opening a new state-of-the-art fire station to adding parking decks to modernizing our Concourses, we are dedicated to ensuring this economic engine for the Southeast region of the country stands head and shoulders above the rest.'”
GPB News also reports from a statement by ATL General Manager Balram ‘B’ Bheodari, “‘ATL is not just a transit point, it is a gateway to the world… Receiving the North America’s Best Airport Award from Business Traveler Magazine is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team and underscores our essential role in connecting people, businesses and cultures.'”
Atlanta, in so many ways, really is a gateway to the world. And we’re so happy to have the best airport in all of North America.

This comes after Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson also won the #1 airport restaurant in the country this year as well.
Well done, Atlanta airport!
