Delta Air Lines flight DL295 to Tokyo’s Narita International Airport will become the first flight to depart Concourse F at the new Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal when the new terminal opens on May 16 at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
Shortly after flight 295’s departure, Delta Air Lines flight DL177 from Dublin, Ireland will be the first arrival at the new concourse and new terminal.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design-certified international terminal complex is the new doorway for customers arriving from and departing for international destinations via Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The new Concourse F, which connects to Concourse E, includes 12 gates.
From Atlanta, Delta Air Lines operates more than 1,000 daily departures to 208 destinations, including non-stop service to 65 international destinations.
Inside Concourse F, the newest Delta Sky Club features seating and ample space for more than 300 guests, as well as amenities which include eight shower suites, multiple work areas and art designed to capture the spirit of Delta’s international destinations.
Concourse F’s new Delta Sky Club also offers The Luxury Bar with premium wines, champagne and spirits available for purchase. Windows across the Club offer mezzanine-level views of Delta’s operations in Atlanta.
The new international terminal eliminates the need for Atlanta-destined passengers to re-check their baggage. Departing customers will access the international terminal via I-75 at Exit 239. Shuttle service connects to the domestic terminal, domestic parking facilities and MARTA train service to downtown Atlanta.
The Plane Train and pedestrian walkway both have been extended to offer access to the Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal.

“The new international terminal is Atlanta’s new front door to the world,” says Richard Anderson, Delta’s chief executive officer. “On behalf of Delta people worldwide, I want to congratulate aviation general manager Louis Miller, Mayor Kasim Reed and the City of Atlanta for seeing this project to its completion and thank them for continuing the strong partnership Delta has had with the airport and city for more than 70 years.”
Adds Anderson: “Delta’s contribution to the new terminal and concourse is part of a more than $3 billion investment in facilities, products and technology in the air and on the ground. In addition to this premier international gateway in Atlanta, renovations and expansions to Delta airport facilities also are underway in New York, Seattle, Los Angeles and Salt Lake City.”
