  • "Connecting" flights on different airlines
    Feb 13, 2016

    We are traveling to ATL via Southwest (lands 10:10 am). Originally, we planned to drive to Savannah but have decided to fly now. We will fly to SAV via Delta (12:30 pm). We will not be checking bags. Do we need to exit, get tickets & go back through security? How does did work when you have "connecting" flights on different airlines?

     

    You will need to check in for your Delta flight online and print off your boarding passes or get them on your phone before leaving on your Southwest flight. Then when you arrive in Atlanta you can just go directly to the departure gate for your Savannah flight. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

     

  • Terminal I to Terminal S

    I am arriving from London into ATL at 17.24 on Delta flight on 4 April into Terminal I and then leave at 19.25 from Terminal S on Delta flight to Orlando. When I asked the airline they were not sure if I had to collect luggage and re check in for the second flight. I have done this routine some years ago but my luggage was transferred to the second flight. Can anyone advise me and do I have time to change Terminal?

     

    You do not have to actually change terminals. Assuming your inbound flight is not coming from somewhere with preclearance, you will arrive in the E or F gates, 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 gate. You have enough time. Where are you flying into Atlanta from?

    I have 50 mins to connect from Tampa>Atlanta to Atlanta>Bermuda. Is this an easy connection with that much time? Is that the last Atlanta?Bermuda flight of the day?

     

    That is enough time if your first flight is on-time. All you have to do in ATL is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The plane train connects all concourses inside security. You don't say when you're traveling and on what flight so I don't know if you're on the last flight of the day, however, few days have more than one flight from Atlanta to Bermuda.

    Hi, I have a connecting flight on 13th April from TPA til LHR via ATL with Delta and I only have 1 hr and 4 minutes to transfer to my flight til LHR. it's the last flight out from ATL to LHR on this day and I'm slightly concerned that I won't make my flight to LHR. Is 1 hr and 4 minutes enough time and do I have to pick up my luggage and recheck it for my flight to LHR?

     

    You don't have to do anything with your baggage. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. the Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You have enough time as long as your plane from Tampa is on-time.

    I will be arriving in Atlanta at 8:30 a.m. and have 1 hour and 15 minutes to get to my connecting flight to PV. Is this enough time to navigate the airport and get to my gate? Do I have to pick up my luggage and re-check it?

    Hello, We are flying from Amsterdam on Delta 073 arriving at Terminal I. Then we leave for West Palm Beach on DL 1053 on Feb. 15. We have 2 h time in between flights, but as I am blind it may take us a tad longer (4 pers). How far is it from Terminal I to S, and how long do you usually spend in customs? Thank you.

     

    You don't actually have to change terminals. You will arrive in the E or F concourse, 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 directly to your departure concourse. You should have enough time.

    I am flying into ATL from Wichita (ICT) and land at Terminal S. I have 2h35m to transfer to Terminal I for my flight to London (LHR). As this is such a busy airport and confusing to me from a look at the map I would like to know if it is terribly complicated to switch Terminals and how long (approximately) it should take to do so? Including Security checks of course. Thanks!!

     

    You don't actually have to change terminals. You will arrive in Concourse A, B, C, or D and depart from Concourse E or F. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.

    Approximately how long does it take to get from Int Termal to Domestic terminal AFTER immigration, baggage collect,customs ect....Thank you

     

    After re-checking your bags you will go through a special security line for connecting passengers and take the Plane Train directly to your departure concourse. From the point when you clear back through security to reaching your departure gate should take no more than 10 minutes.

     

    Many thanks
