HAPEVILLE | Airport has record-breaking year

ATLANTA -- Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has earned the title of world's busiest airport for the 14th year in a row.

Preliminary data released Tuesday shows that passenger traffic at the airport increased by more than 3.5 percent in 2011.

About 92.4 million passengers passed through the airport in 2011, which is 2.6 percent more than the previous record of 90 million, set in 2008.

"We're growing faster than the North American average, which is no easy feat during these tough economic time," airport general manager Louis Miller said in a statement. "With the opening of the international terminal this spring, we're looking forward to continued growth this year and beyond."
