We are flying into Atlanta from Austin on Delta connecting to an Air France flight with a 56 minute layover. Is that sufficient time? I am assuming that we will have to go through security a second time to enter international terminal. The first flight lists as Air France operated by Delta
You assume incorrectly. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse (E or F) and board your flight. You have enough time.
Hi , we are flying from Heathrow to Atlanta and then on to Bahamas, have never had a connecting flight before, what is the process, getting panicky about delays from London and missing connecting flight etc
You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and then take the Plane Train to your departure concourse if it is not E or F.
Hi. We are flying from Atlanta Terminal 1 to Heathrow (T5) in October. Can you please advise whether 'The Club' lounge is in this terminal or how we would travel to/from it.

Hey I am flying in today from Phoenix to ATL with Delta DL1546 and then need to switch to an international Delta flight DL 28 with an 1h 9mins layover. Is this sufficient time? Also I'm returning back to my home country. Do I need to go through security check? Or customs or immigration. First timer.
Is it one ticket or two separate tickets? I assume one which will enough time. Coming back, yes you need to pass customs AND immigration at Hartsfield Jackson.
There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US.
We are flying into Atlanta on October 19 from Tampa arriving at 19.00. Our Connection to Heathrow is departing at 20.39. Both flights are with Delta. Do we have to collect and re drop off our luggage and is 1 hour 39 minutes long enough. Our tickets say we arrive in terminal S and depart terminal I. Thanks.
It will take only 10 min. Your lugagge go directly to LHR
I will be traveling with a toddler alone and wanted to make sure i have enough time as well from terminal s to terminal I. Is it in the same concourse? We will have 45 minutes to board after landing. Will we have to get on the train?
You will arrive in Concourse T, A, B, or C and depart from Concourse E or F. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
I am traveling to Manchester U.K. From Turks and Caicos with my connection in Atlanta. My layover is 1hr 55min. Will I need to clear immigration and re check my luggage?
You will have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security, but may not have to claim and re-check your bags.

We are flying in on Sunday from Mccarran Int Las Vegas to ATL with Delta KL5086 and then need to switch to an international Delta flight KL6073 with less than 1h layover. Is this sufficient time? Do we need to go through customs and check in our Luggage again?
Yes, you only need to take the train inside your concourse. It will take you no more than 10 min.
Thank you Steph; so also no passing through customs or checking the Luggage again?
Yes, no need to recheck your luggage since I assume you were issued a single ticket. Also, in the USA, there is no customs when leaving the country, only when entering! Have a safe travels!
Good Morning ZAP,

Do we clear customs and security at International terminal?
Yes, you will arrive in the International Terminal, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and then take the Plane Train to your departure concourse. You should have enough time.
Arriving ad depapatting fm international airport arriving terminal I fm Montreal. Departing for Miami terminal S is one hour enough for connecting flight
Yes, since you will be doing customs and immigration at Montreal. You will be landing as domestic flight and no need to recheck your luggages, I assume that you have one single ticket.
We arrive in Atlanta on Delta at 7:13 p.m. from Peoria and depart on Delta for London at 8:39 p.m. Do we have to do anything with luggage in Atlanta or just take plane train to the international terminal? How long does that take?
Take the train to the International Terminal (either Concourse E or F). Luggage go directly to Heathrow.
