ATLANTA (AP) -- Atlanta's main airport has opened a new international terminal aimed at helping it remain the world's busiest airport.

The $1.4 billion addition opened Wednesday after years of planning.

The building's wavy lines and eye-catching artwork offer a stark contrast to the boxy design of the rest of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

Hundreds of passengers and airport employees milled around the terminal, checking out restaurants and watching flights from the expansive windows.

Airport managers are already expecting an increase in international travelers over the next decade, and they hope the terminal will convince airlines to route even more of their overseas flights through the city.
