Website for the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport

The website for the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is a useful site for both the resident of Atlanta as well as the tourists. The website offers information on flights and the airport itself. The layout of the webpage is easy to follow and easily accessible. The content of the website’s homepage is set up in a way that displays what is seemingly the most frequently accessed information. This information is set up on in boxes in the center of page, and is most likely the first thing seen when opening this site. On the left side of the webpage, the box allows visitors (of the website) to enter information into the fields so that they may find out more about their travels.

I am not quite sure how often one might want or need to access this page. However, the fact that it is on the website further shows the point of the purpose of the website being to inform its visitors.   I found this page to be a little odd, simply because I wasn’t quite sure what kind of business one could do with an airport. Simple curiosity is what made this page useful to me. There is definitely an intended audience (group of viewers) for the page.   I assume this page is meant to give the page a more personal feel (for lack of a better tern).
