  • MCI to ATL to AUA
    Apr 19, 2017

    Hello. We are first time travelers so I'm a little nervous about our upcoming trip. We leave MCI (Kansas City) at 6:00 a.m. and arrive in Atlanta at 8:59 a.m. our next flight for Aruba leaves at 10:43 a.m. All flights are on Delta. On return we leave Aruba at 3:40 p.m. and get to Atlanta at 8:03 p.m. Then leave there for Kansas City at 10:20 p.m. We have no clue what we are doing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

     

    That is plenty of time. All you have to do both ways in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Plane Train. On the way back from Aruba, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Aruba.

    Could you post the telephone number for your baggage service center at the Atlanta airport

     

    1. This is not the Atlanta Airport's website. 2. Baggage services are handled by the airline, not the airport.

    When returning from Buenos Aires - Argentina do I have to claim my baggage at ALT and then check baggage in for TPA destination? or will bags travel from Buenos Aires to the final destination Tampa? thank you

     

    In Atlanta you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse.

    I am flying from Grand Rapids MI through Atlanta to Cancun. Will I have to claim any checked luggage or will it be checked through for the whole flight? All flights are on the same ticket.

     

    No, you will not have to claim your bags in Atlanta on your way TO Cancun.

Flying with Air France and will have to check in a bag, Will I have enough time to check in bags, security etc. on a Friday evening. Have not left Atlanta Airport on Friday evening and was not sure about wait times during this time. Thanks

     

    That should be enough time. Most of the other flights have left the International Terminal by then.

    Flying in on Delta from Johannesburg, South Africa, arriving at ATL just after 6 am and I depart on Vegas (domestic) to LAS VAGES at 8:25, is this enough time? Will I be able to check my luggage straight through from Johannesburg to Vegas?

     

    Your bags will be tagged through to Las Vegas, but in Atlanta you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the plane train to your departure concourse. You have enough time.
