Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Airport Complex
The airport grounds are made up of two large terminals (Domestic and International) which in turn are subdivided by concourses. While the satellites in concourses A - E are parallel to each other, arranged successively in distance from the main terminal, concourses A, B, C, D, E and T are part of the domestic terminal, and concourse F (approximately 1 km away from lobby E) is part of the international terminal.
