Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) is the busiest airport in the world, with nearly one million flights per year. The airport is a hub for AirTran Airways, Delta Air Lines and Silver Airways. It is also a mini-hub for Southwest Airlines, resulting in cheap flights to countless destinations, including Boston, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and New York City.
Orlando, New York City, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa and Los Angeles are among the most popular domestic destination for fliers departing from Atlanta. Because so many airlines fly out of Atlanta, each of these routes is served by multiple airlines—and the competition often translates into cheap flights for travelers.
Travelers to Orlando can fly AirTran, Delta or Southwest. Travelers bound for New York City’s LaGuardia Airport (LGA) can choose between flights on AirTran, American Airlines, Delta and Southwest. AirTran, Delta and Spirit Airlines all fly between Atlanta and Fort Lauderdale. The Atlanta-Tampa route is served by AirTran and Delta. And travelers to Los Angeles can choose between flights on AirTran, Delta and Southwest.
Internationally, the busiest international routes are to Cancun, Amsterdam, Paris, Montego Bay and Toronto.
