Fun Facts about the Pet Friendly Atlanta Airport

We've spent the last couple of days exploring the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport - a hub that every busy traveler will probably pass through at one point or another.

Here are a few fun facts about ATL:

-It's the largest employer in the state of Georgia; over 58,000 people work here

-ATL covers 4700 acres and has 199 gates

-Over 240,000 people pass through here each day

-The proclaimed mission of ATL is "to be the world's best airport by exceeding customer expectations"

Pet travelers tend to take special note of this particular airport because of its two pet relief areas - handy amenities that also offer a little more pizzaz than the average dog run.

Yesterday we published our interview with a representative from the Atlanta airport and he mentioned the distinctive artwork found in the main pet area. We thought this fun feature was definitely worth looking into, so here are a few more pictures.
