  • How much time to get from intl terminal to domestic on 2 tickets?
    Mar 27, 2015
    I have purchased a cheap ticket that flies from Ft. Lauderdale international airport to Copenhagen through Norwegian Airlines. I was planning on buying the cheapest ticket I can manage from Atlanta to Ft. Lauderdale. My outgoing flight leaves late in the day from FLL and there are plenty of available flights that day, but my return flight will arrive at FLL at 8:00 pm. The only flight after that leaves at 9:45 to Atlanta. Is one hour and 45 minutes sufficient to get from the international terminal to the domestc terminal? I will not have checked baggage, only a carry-on, and I will not be bringing anything that needs to be declared. My main worry is that the flight leaving from Copenhagen will be delayed, but it will leave in June so there won't be winter weather to worry about. Should I just buy an early morning ticket from FLL instead of a late night one?


    1 hr 45 mins is possible without checked baggage. Be sure to check in online for your FLL-ATL flight before you leave Europe.


  • How to reach from International to Domestic Terminal?
    Oct 16, 2014
    I will be arriving From Dubai to Atlanta (Flight DL7 ) at Terminal INTL. I have next Flight to Washington DC (IAD) (Flight DL 201) which is from Terminal S. So how will I reach to Terminal S , from Terminal INTL? Is there any service I should know about, please? Thanks.


    You don't actually have to go to the S Terminal. Pleas look at the map. you will arrive in Concourse E or F, where you will go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, and go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk with Delta. Then you will go through security and then take the Plane Train directly to your departure concourse. There is no need to go to the actual S terminal.


  • I have a connection in Atlanta arriving from Mexico and only 1 1/2 hrs

    I am arriving to Atlanta from Cancun to the International terminal and have 1 1/2 hours to go through migration and customs recheck baggage and go to my gate will it be enough, all the flights are with Delta


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. After you clear customs and re-check your bag there is a special security checkpoint just for people connecting off of international flights and that leads directly to the plane train which will take you to your departure concourse.

    Hi- we have a 10 hour layover in Atlanta - flying with delta. Is it possible to leave the airport for a few hours? Thanks


    Yes, it is about a 40 minute ride on the MARTA train to downtown or midtown Atlanta.
