FOUR MILLION MORE PASSENGERS AT HARTSFIELD IN 1992

 ATLANTA, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Statistics released this week by the City of Atlanta Department of Aviation show that nearly 42 million passengers passed through Hartsfield Atlanta International Airport in 1992.
 A total of 41,967,232 passengers utilized the airport last year, representing a 10.69 percent increase over 1991 figures.
 International passenger traffic surpassed the 2 million mark -- up 13.06 percent. Aviation Commissioner Maxwell W. Walker called the increase in international traffic significant. "Our growth for international traffic has been constant for the last several years," Walker said. "We served 2,202,226 international passengers in 1992 compared to 1,947,782 passengers the previous year. We probably would have reached these levels in 1991 had we not experienced the demise of Eastern Airlines and the Gulf War. I am quite pleased that our forecasts for continued significant increases in passenger traffic indeed are confirmed by these figures."
 The 1992 figures for domestic passenger traffic gained 10.56 percent over 1991 -- from 35,967,242 to 39,756,006. Air cargo, measured in metric tons, totaled 649,451 -- up 8.3 percent over the 1991 figure of 599,674 metric tons.
