Before you can see the gorgeous southern sights offered by Georgia’s capital, you will need to first make your way to either John F. Kennedy or LaGuardia International Airports Both of these New York airports are located in Queens, but JFK operates at approximately double the capacity.

Together, these two airfields transport over 75 million foreign and domestic passengers to and from NYC, and are integral parts of the United States’ second largest airport system. While congestion is less rampant at LaGuardia, the facility is not nearly as streamlined and up-to-date as its bigger counterpart.
