  • MAN to ATL to MCO
    Sep 24, 2016
    Hi, I'm a British citizen travelling from MAN to ATL to MCO I land in ATL at 15:05 and the flight to MCO leaves at 17:00 The flight is virgin connecting to delta so will this be enough time given i will have to go through security and collect/drop off baggage etc? Thanks


    That should be just about enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Time between concourses
    Sep 23, 2016
    Flight arrives at gate B16 at 9:57am departing from A5 to start boarding @ 10:10am departs @ much time do I have between concourses? Better to walk or take plane train? Not familiar with Atlanta plane train. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    It's best to take the plane train. You should have enough time if the first flight is on-time, but it obviously doesn't leave a whole lot of time to spare.


  • Terminal N
    Sep 23, 2016
    Hello Im flying from atlanta hartsfield int apt Terminal N. To charlotte NC and then abroad could someone tell me if terminal N in fomestic or International Airport? Thank you


    I'm guessing you're flying American? If so you check in at the Domestic terminal, there's no AA counter in the International Terminal.


    Hello Thank you for the response!Well it says British Airways but operated by American Airlines Im going to London but flying from Atlanta with a connection at Charlotte NC and it said Terminal N which got me confused with internationl or domestic?


    Yes, it's the North side of the Domestic Terminal. You check in with American Airlines (which is the very last check in counter on the North Side).


    Perfect! Thank you!

    Hi everyone! I have a layover/connecting flight to ATL at terminal A and have 36 minutes to exit and find terminal D. Is this enough time? Is it better to take the tram or walk all the way to my gate?


    A and D are just concourses, not Terminals. It is fastest to take the train by far. This is possible if the first flight is on-time.


  • International to Domestic Connection

    Hi there! I'm returning to the US from a vacation in France and I'm due to land at ATL from CDG at 1715 on 8 November. My connecting flight from ATL to MOB leaves at 1901. I travel with only a carry-on and I have Global Entry. Is this doable? The tickets were all purchased through Delta although the CDG-ATL leg is an Air France. Thanks!


    With carry-ons only and Global Entry, yes, that should be enough time.


    Thanks so much!


  • Terminal s
    Sep 20, 2016
    Help - I am arriving at terminal B and have 45 minutes total to exit and find terminal S. Is this enough time?


    And please tell me where is terminal S? Thank you


    Atlanta doesn't have a Terminal B. If both flights are on Delta and the fist flight is domestic all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.


    Thank you ZAP


    Zap, you obviously don't know what you're talking about. Atlanta does have a Terminal B, but they call them concourses. T,A,B,C,D,E,F. Delta is on the same terminal/concourse.


    You just said it yourself - it's a concourse, not a terminal. The two terminals is the North/South domestic building and the International building.

    Hi everyone I'm travelling to Knoxville TN from London Heathrow with Virgin/Delta which involves a change of flight at Atlanta. As an international passenger with hold luggage, is an hour long enough between the Virgin Atlantic flight landing and the Delta flight leaving for me to transfer?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the Plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart.


    Thanks ZAP - very helpful - do you know whether or not I need to collect my hold luggage during the transfer, or if this is done automatically for me at Atlanta? Both there and on the way back to London?


    Also I'm aware I will need to go through security as a non-US citizen - how bad a delay does security add at ATL as part of that hour layover???


    You will not have to go through any special security in Atlanta on your way to London. I don't know where you heard that but it's not true. You also don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta on your way to London.


    Sorry I misread and thought you were just talking about the trip from Knoxville to London, on the way from London to Knoxville, 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 gate.


    Also, an Hour is not enough time for an International to Domestic connection in Atlanta. The realistic minimum is 2 hours.


  • Connection from Canada
    Sep 16, 2016
    I fly into ATL from Canada (YUL) at 9:16 on Delta and have a connecting flight at 10:11pm (55 minutes)in South Terminal.Is that enough time?


    You don't actually have to change terminals. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse and board your flight.




    Can we check our baggage all the way thru our connection flight or do we have to take it off and take it to the connection flight?


    You don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta.


  • Short Connection

    I booked a cheap tickets on Expedia and I didn't get the itinerary until after I paid for the tickets. I am flying Delta to Atlanta and only have 41 minutes till my flight departs at the international airport for Rome. Is this enough time???


    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time, you just take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to Concourse E or F where you depart. Obviously it leaves no time to spare if the first flight is delayed.


  • Internation to domestic transfer
    Sep 15, 2016
    I arrive from LHR at 4.05P and leave for BHM at 6.15P. I have no checked bags. Is this enough time?g8


    Yes, that is enough time.


  • Connecting from San Jose CR to KLM
    Sep 20, 2016
    My friend is coming to visit me in the Middle East. She has a layover of 2hrs once she arrives to Hartfield. Is this enough time to clear customs and make her connecting flight to the Netherlands(KLM)?


    She is flying from San Jose Costa Rica to ATL for a connecting flight. I am sure that she has to clear immigration/customs


    2 Hours is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Sep 13, 2016
    50 minute layover (not include disembarking) from what looks like C to E terminal. Should I look at trying to secure earlier flight out of SEA or will this be enough time. 1 passenger. Thank you very much


    C and E are concourses, not terminals. You have enough time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.


    Sep 13, 2016


    You arrive in concourse D and will have to go to the North Side domestic baggage claim. It will take you about 10-15 minutes to get to the baggage claim.


  • Sufficient Time
    Sep 12, 2016
    I arrive at the South Terminal at 9.27 am from Chicago and departs at 11.05 am from the North Terminal to Miami do I have sufficient time?


    You don't actually have to change terminals if you don't have checked bags, you can go straight from your arrival gate to your departure gate if you check in online for your second flight. However, if you do have checked bags you will have to claim them in the South side of the domestic terminal, take them to the second airline on the north side, re-check them, and go through security, which would be difficult to do in that time-frame. What airlines are you flying?


  • INTL-DOM connection

    Flying Virgin (VS109) out of MAN arriving into ATL at 14.45. Connecting Delta flight (DL2433) leaves for SFO at 16.25. Will 1.40hr connection time be sufficient? I would ideally like to have checked luggage, and will be able to use APC. Thanks.


    That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.
