Henry County Airports are Clayton County Airport - Tara Field formally known as Henry County Airport - Morris Field and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Clayton County Airport is located about 3 miles west of the central business of Hampton, Georgia, on the far south side of metro Atlanta in western Henry County. The airport covers 140 acres and has one runway. Since 1992, the Airport has been owned and operated by Clayton County. Located on the north end of Clayton County is the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Visitors and residents of Henry County can benefit from both Airports. Tara Field serves general aviation, especially for the Atlanta Motor Speedway.

The Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is largely located in the suburbs. This Airport was the busiest Airport from 1985 to 2005. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport yearly accommodates approximately 980,197 takeoffs and landings a year. According to projections, the airport handles 88.4 million passengers. Many of the flights are domestic from the United States where Atlanta serves as a major transfer point for flights to and from smaller cities throughout the Southern. Fifty-seven percent of their passengers fly elsewhere. Hartsfield-Jackson International is the chief hub to Delta Air Lines, AirTran Airways and Atlantic Southeast Airlines.

Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport has international service to Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. It has two terminals where passengers check in, the North Terminal and the South Terminal. The middle part of this building is the so-called main terminal, used for security screening, before passengers head to their aircraft councourses. Airside councourses are arranged successively in distance from the terminal as Concourses T, A, B, C and D and E. Six concourses exist for passenger boarding. Moving sidewalks and an underground "people mover" train made by Adtranz connect the concourses, and the terminals building. Hartsfield-Jackson also has its own train station on the city's rapid transit system, MARTA. The above-ground station is inside in the main building, between the north and south terminals on the west end.
