  • Customs and timing

    Going to Nassau. We will land in Atlanta at 940 out an hour later to Nassau will we go through customs in Atlanta or Nassau? Do we have time?


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You will go through Bahamanian Immigration and Customs in Nassau. If your first flight is domestic all you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

  • Why did Ihave to re-enter TSA check
    Jan 13, 2016
    Upon my arrival from Dominican republic. My luggage was lost and I had a connecting flight to Tampa. I had to go in a long line and go through TSA check point to get back in the terminal


    Yes, every time you enter the US after an international flight, if you are connecting to another flight, you have to go through security. This is true at every US airport.
