We are arriving at gate b22 on Southwest and leaving on Southwest at gate c16; is 45 min enough time to get from gate to gate?
Southwest doesn't use Concourse B. All Southwest gates in Atlanta are on Concourse C. Perhaps B22 is the departure gate for your first flight. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.
IN TRANSFERRING FROM ARR FLT FROM FCO TO DEP FLT TO SAT WILL I HAVE TO CLAIM BAGGAGE AND RECHECK ?
Yes, you 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 concourse.
I purchased a ticket from delta.com, So I have a flight from Greenville/Spartanburg to ATL on delta and then from ATL to Amsterdam on KLM. Do I need to pick up my luggage during my layover in ATL and recheck them in at the KLM counter? Or will they automatically go on my next flight with KLM?
Your bags will automatically go to your next flight on the way to Amsterdam. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart and board your flight.
arriving from RSW to ATL then connecting to MAN international flight Layover time 56 minutes. will that be long enough for airport wheelchair assistance and more importantly luggage to be transfered
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
we have a Delta flight on 11/22 mco-atl 7:30PM arriving atl 9:04PM connecting to KLM at 10:25PM (1hour 21 minute)Is Delta and KLM close to one another & is it possible for us to make our connection being an international flight and at least 4 people are on that flight to Amsterdam does klm every hold the flight for a short time... thanks
Delta uses almost the entire airport. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to Concourse E or F where you depart and board your flight. They will probably not hold your flight for you but you should have enough time.
Hello

I'm connecting through ATL on two international flight. Fly Punta Cana (PUJ) to ATL arriving into Concourse E and then depart ATL to Heathrow from Concourse F.

I'm hand luggage only so as I won't be entering the US is there a way of staying airside and a way of avoiding immigration etc.?
You have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security.
I'm flying Delta, PNS to MCO, through ATL, with only 50 minutes between connecting flights. How do I find out which concourse my Pensacola flight will be arriving at and which concourse the Atlanta to Orlando flight will be departing from? I've never been to the Atlanta airport before and am very worried about making my connecting flight.
You find out your concourse from Delta.com the day of your flight. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
Which gate do we arrive at and depart from in Atlanta and do we have to claim and recheck out baggage between flights? When do we go thru customs
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Plane Train (assuming both flights are on Delta).
I have 57 minutes between a KLM from DFW to Atlanta, then departing to Amsterdam on KLM. Last week I was in Atlanta and missed my connection FROM AMS. However, of course I had to go through customs and then through security again (the latter I didn't expect).
So, with the reverse scenario (domestic TO international) will I have to go through security this time?
Without customs and security, the hour should be enough? (the flight has a 92% on time rating). Much appreciated!
Your first flight will be operated by Delta. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Plane Train. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
much appreciated!
Hello there
Please would you let me now what the distance is from Terminal E and F and how long it usually takes to clear immigration and customs from one international flight to another.
Thank you soo very much!
You need at least 2.5 hours between flights, preferably closer to 3.
