On 11 July Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport announced a record USD1 billion in gross retail sales in calendar year 2016, and added that this figure could be exceeded in 2017.

An airport spokesperson told Jane's that Atlanta believes it may be the first airport in North America to reach the USD1-billion milestone for non-aeronautical turnover, but is hesitant to make that claim because of a "lack of reporting and differences in concession programmes".

In 2016, the 46 concessions in the airport – the busiest in the world by passenger volume – saw combined revenues of USD572.9 million, up 5.2% from 2015. Rental car revenues grew by 5.5% to reach USD398 million, as the 13 car rental brands in Atlanta outperformed the other four categories of non-aeronautical sales.

Food and beverages accounted for USD344.8 million, while services reported USD75.6 million. Retail sales were USD152.9 million, and duty-free retail brought in USD29.3 million.
