ATLANTA (AP) -- Officials at the world's busiest airport say the facility is on track to complete one of the biggest concessions roll-outs in North America.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport officials said in a statement that it's been nearly three years since the airport began boosting its number of dining and shopping offerings to passengers. Once the overhaul is finished, airport officials say the facility will have one of the highest numbers of concessions offerings of any airport in the world.

The airport's Interim General Manager, Miguel Southwell, says Hartsfield-Jackson is on track to have most of its 152 new dining and retail stores in place by the end of 2014.

Airport officials say the facility serves more than 94.4 million passengers annually, with nonstop service to 160 U.S. and 70 international destinations.
