The Spanish company TBI Airport Management Inc. has won a five-year management contract for Atlanta airport’s new Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal.

TBI is a subsidiary of TBI Ltd., owned jointly by Barcelona-based Abertis Infraestructuras S.A., an infrastructure provider, and Aena Desarrollo Internacional S.A., the international business arm of airport and air traffic control organization Aena, headquartered in Madrid, according to a May 7 press release.

The contract also renewed TBI’s deal to manage Concourse E, a relationship that has been in place since the concourse opened in 1994.

When the new international terminal, or Concourse F, opens May 16, it will join with Concourse E in providing 40 gates for international flights.

Along with Concourses E and F, TBI runs the airport’s domestic gates, check-in counters and baggage claim facilities.

Louis Miller, general manager of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, highlighted the airport’s longstanding relationship with TBI.

“They have been a close business partner for years, and we look forward to their support in ensuring Atlanta remains well positioned as a global gateway for the U.S.,” Mr. Miller said.

TBI was British-owned until it was acquired by Abertis in 2005.
