The head of the world's busiest airport has been let go by Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed.
Miguel Southwell, general manager of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, will no longer lead the airport. In a written statement late Friday evening, Reed said Southwell's "service as Aviation General Manager at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has ended."
Reed said he is "committed to achieving maximum operational efficiencies and the highest level of customer service possible. I wish Mr. Southwell the best in the next chapter of his career."
Roosevelt Council, the airport's chief financial officer and deputy general manager, will serve as interim general manager of the airport.
