Concourse D was originally opened in 1980, and is the airport’s narrowest with a circulation corridor of 18 feet and seating for 5,400 passengers. After consultation, the airport is due to receive a further 19 modules added to the structure to accommodate larger waiting rooms, a higher ceiling, new restrooms and building systems, and a 75% increase in boarding level square footage among other upgrades.

Airport General Manager Balram Bheodari, said:

This project will allow us to meet future capacity demands while enhancing ATL’s role as a leader in the industry.

The unique requirements of building what is, in effect, a new concourse while maintaining operations will be a challenge we’ll overcome through collaboration, planning, and professionalism.

Construction of the modules began earlier this month, with completion of the project expected by late Summer 2029.
