People flying out of the Macon Airport will now be able to check in, and avoid a second trip through security when they arrive in Atlanta. The airline Georgia Skies finally won gate access at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Before, people making the flight from Macon would have to land in Atlanta, claim their bags, board a shuttle, and check in all over again. Now passengers will only check in once in Macon.

The airline hopes having gate access will help them attract more passengers. Georgia Skies says one-way flights from Macon are 39-dollars and that check-in lines in Macon are rarely more than ten minutes long.
