Atlanta’s Hardsfield-Jackson International Airport is now offering (a fictional picture of) flights to Wakanda, according to Hollywood Reporter.
Wakanda on Social Media
Following Black Panther’s record-breaking opening weekend, the airport’s official twitter shared an image from one of their gates with a flight boarding for T’Challa’s homeland. I guess that’s how he gets to Avengers meetings?

Do you think they’ll offer return flights, too?
Travel to Wakanda with The Black Panther
The Atlanta airport frequently hosts superheroes and their travel essentials. Marvel has filmed many of their films in Atlanta and other locations around Georgia. The list includes Captain America: Civil War, where T’Challa made his film debut as The Black Panther. Booking a ticket is as easy as tweeting at the ATL Airport account. Atlanta citizens do not need a visa to travel to Wakanda. The welcoming committee greets all travelers with a flower necklace made of The Heart Shaped Herb.
We’ve gotta have some music on the in-flight entertainment too. Now streaming: Killmonger Me Softly, T’Challa Back Girl, M’Baku That Thang Up, Straight Outta Wakanda, N’Jadaka Said Knock You Out.
