ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta's airport is expecting more than 4.2 million passengers during the current holiday period running through January 3.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport said in a statement that it projects that passenger traffic for 2016 will eclipse its 101.4-million passenger count for 2015.

The busiest days during this holiday period are expected to be Friday; and also December 30, January 2 and January 5.

Airport officials say construction work on the airport's $6 billion improvement project is being minimized to ease traffic concerns.
