Do you think Atlanta needs a second airport?
A federally funded study this spring re-examined the issue and looked at eight potential locations — concluding none is economically feasible, AJC reporter Kelly Yamanouchi writes.
But, Yamanouchi points out, Atlanta remains one of the few major U.S. cities without a second commercial airport.
Supporters say a second airport could bring more competition and, depending on the location, better convenience for northside travelers, Yamanouchi writes.
But major obstacles include high costs and the likelihood of intense local opposition to any site considered, Yamanouchi reports.
What do you think? How do you size up the benefits vs. costs?
