CHICAGO, Jan 12, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- JBT Corporation (NYSE: JBT) today announced that its JBT AeroTech business was awarded a contract by HMMH, the Construction Manager for the new Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal (MHJIT) at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The contract includes the supply and installation of 12 new Jetway(R) passenger boarding bridges and all associated ancillary equipment for the gates in the new Concourse 'F'.
The City of Atlanta commissioned HMMH to manage the entire project for the MHJIT that will connect to the existing Concourse 'E' creating a 40-gate international air travel complex. The MHJIT will provide international travelers with the convenience of a dedicated terminal and ease demand on existing airport facilities by removing international passengers from the existing terminal and security checkpoints.
"We are very pleased to continue our long-term relationship with the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in providing them with all of their gate equipment solutions," said John Lee, Vice President and Division Manager, JBT AeroTech.
JBT AeroTech received the order in December 2009 and anticipates completing its portion of the project prior to the terminal's completion in the second quarter of 2012.
