Aventures Hometown Airport Once Again World’s Busiest

Aventure's hometown airport, Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, is once again the world's busiest by passenger traffic. It had that distinction since 1998, but lost to Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in 2020 due to effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"It's gratifying to see that Atlanta once again has the world's busiest airport," said President of Aventure Aviation, Talha Faruqi. "Not to mention the recent accolades for Delta."

Atlanta-based Delta Airlines was rated #1 by corporate travelers in the annual Business Travel News Airline Survey for the 11th year in a row. Customers also chose Delta "Best Airline in North America for 2021" in the Skytrax World Airline Awards.

Delta CEO Ed Bastian was named a top ten CEO of 2021 in Glassdoor's 2021 Employees' Choice Awards, naming CEOs who excelled at supporting their people throughout the pandemic.

2021 was a challenging year for most companies. For Aventure, it was also one of celebration as it marked 20 years in business, which culminated in receiving the prestigious US Presidential E-Award for Exports in November. Aventure was recently congratulated by Delta's CEO at the annual meeting of the Metro Atlanta Chamber.

"We frequently re-tweaked our business strategy to meet the constantly changing market situations," said Senior Vice President, Amyr Qureshi. "We diversified our products and portfolio of customers while creating synergies with competitors and closer relationship with repair shops, that ultimately resulted in record-setting revenues."

Foodbank Helped by Aventure Staff

Staff from Aventure Aviation's Atlanta headquarters held a food drive in December to benefit the Real Life Center, located in nearby Tyrone, Georgia.

"We have been doing this for many years, as we really value the importance of giving back to our community," said Aventure's office manager, Chelsea Griffin. "We had a lot of support from our staff, from those working in our offices and remotely."

Since 1998, The Real Life Center has been helping those in need in Georgia's Fayette and Coweta Counties.

The center's core program is designed to connect individuals and families with vital resources. They also assist them with setting goals, developing an action plan, and connecting them to resources within the Real Life Center and the larger community.

History this monthJanuary 1, 1914 — The St. Petersburg-Tampa Airboat Line became the world's first scheduled airline using winged aircraft, when Anthony Janus flew his first passenger from St. Petersburg, Florida to neighboring Tampa, about 23 miles across Tampa Bay. This served as a prototype for today's global airline industry.

January 16, 1957 — Five Boeing B-52B "Stratofortresses", of the U.S. Air Force, begin "Operation Power Flite," the first nonstop round-the-world flight by turbojet aircraft.

Quote of the monthSome day people will be crossing oceans on airliners like they do on steamships today."

— Thomas Benoist, builder of Benoist airboats, reacting to the first scheduled passenger flight of the St. Petersburg-Tampa Airboat Line in 1914.
