AATC started with a simple idea – to establish an airline-owned and controlled management team that would provide the most efficient and cost-effective airport operation and maintenance services in the industry. This concept was then formalized in 1979 through the Contracting Airlines’ lease agreement, officially announcing what is now Atlanta Airlines Terminal Company.
