The Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) paid special tribute to the United States’ (US) Independence Day at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) during the airport’s 2019 Fourth of July celebration.

Home to one of the world’s busiest airports, Atlanta remains one of Jamaica’s most important US markets, playing a critical role as a connecting hub for the record-breaking number of visitors to the island every year.

Jamaica was one of 11 countries selected to join the celebration for their strong and exceptional business partnerships with ATL. Other destinations represented Taiwan, Cyprus, the Netherlands, the Republic of Korea, the Bahamas, Canada, Mexico, Belgium, Japan, and Ireland.

Jamaica contributed a stunning floral display, along with a descriptive brief about the island and a note of congratulations. This dedication is prominently displayed in the atrium of ATL’s international terminal and will remain there throughout the holiday.

The event not only recognised the Fourth of July holiday but also highlighted the airport’s mission to provide its 107 million annual guests with the best customer experience possible. During this year’s holiday, the airport expects to have 3.6 million passengers screened through its security checkpoints.

ATL serves as an international gateway to more than 75 destinations in 50 countries across the globe, handling some 2,500 flights and 275,000 passengers each day.
