How to deal with travelling while at the busiest airport in the world

Each year we see an increase in commercial air travel, with some rare exceptions like in 2010 when the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull erupted and stopped Europe bound air travel for quite some time or in 2020 with the global Covid-19 pandemic which paralyzed the whole aviation industry.

This increase in air traffic might be due to the emergence of budget companies like EasyJet and WizzAir which provide cheap alternatives to short and long-distance flights to and from Europe.

When facing millions, how do you deal with the busiest airport in the world?

To date, the busiest airport in the world in terms of passenger numbers is Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (USA), even with the 2020 situation it has welcomed more than 110,531,300 passengers.

A rough calculation would bring a total of 300,000 people each day – the population of Plovdiv, Bulgaria passing through each and every single day.

Now consider passing through that volume of people and you are starting to understand why carriers and airports around the world recommend that you arrive at the airport at least 2 hours before the departure time.

It’s not only because of convenience for you but also reduces the number of overall flights missed and the amount of annoyed people.

Two steps to make your trip easier

It’s a well-known fact that organisation is the main tool you should rely on when travelling – it’s all about appropriating time and effort to a concise amount in order to optimize your results. In a normal speech, this means that you should arrive on time and use the best travel app availableColibra.

We’ve managed to create something which allows you to circumvent most of the hassle involving flying – starting with boarding passes, convenient and important flight and gate information and effortless flight delay compensations claims if something were to happen.

With the simple UI, you have access to all of the necessary information like boarding gate and departure time as well as any changes in that information.

So say you are on a flight bound to Europe, you are departing from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and there are more than a quarter of a million people between you and your flight. You almost reach it and then there’s a gate change that happens to be on the opposite side of the airport – you won’t be happy, but you’d be glad that you came prepared and 2 hours earlier.

How the Colibra app streamlines your air travel

The truth is that we created this app out of necessity, mostly for ourselves, because we were fed up with unresolved delay compensation claims, uninformed airport staff and overall travel clumsiness.

So, we created something that serves a couple of purposes exceptionally well because we are all about excellence and not mediocrity – that’s Colibra.

With more than 1 million aircraft departing from Atlanta each year, and in many other places, a delay due to technical difficulties is eventually going to happen, and it is quite unpleasant when it happens to you.

So, we’ve devised a way which allows you to claim the appropriate amount of flight disruption compensation, which you are entitled to according to EC261 – sometimes up to 600 EUR.

Instead of dealing with bad airline customer support and stubborn reps, simply install our app for free and get compensation for flights which no other company can get you – simple and easy.
