    Will I have enough time to go from Terminal S to Terminal I in 45 minutes? Toronto - Atlanta - San Jose. All Delta


    My apologies, it is Terminal I to Terminal S.


  • From terminal S to Terminal I
    Dec 5, 2016
    coming with KL 5739 on 12/6 from DFW in on terminal S gate B28. Leaving with KL 622 to AMS from terminal I gate F3. Is there enough time?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from B to F. you don't actually have to change terminals.


    Also, note that KLM 5739 is Delta flight 84, so be sure to check in with Delta in DFW.


  • Orlando visit

    My daughter has a flight on Friday 8th December with southwest at 6.10pm to Orlando. Her auburn university shuttle will drop her off at 5.00pm. Is that enough time. She will have no luggage.


    It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. Security lines in Atlanta can be long, especially if she doesn't have PreCheck.


  • Connection to new york
    Dec 3, 2016
    Hey, I'm flying from Costa Rica to NYC la guardia with delta and have 1hour and 40 mins connection in atlanta , will I make it and where do I need to go


    You will arrive in Concourse E or F, 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 concourse. This is a very difficult connection, but not impossible if everything goes smoothly.


  • Grand Rapids to Orlando through Atlanta, will I have enough time
    Nov 30, 2016
    We are flying from Grand Rapids, MI to Orlando with a 52 minute layover in Atlanta. Is that enough time to make our connection?


    Yes, that's enough time if the flight from Grand Rapids is on-time.


  • Baggage and customs
    Nov 28, 2016
    We are arriving from Nassau into Atlanta then going to Nashville both flights Delta. Will we have to recheck our bag (only 1 check bag) in Atlanta?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the plane train. You don't have to do anything with your checked baggage.


  • help with bag in transit from INT to domestic
    Nov 28, 2016
    arr ATL on DL/KL from AMS and connect to KL/DL 5352 PIT.- I am pregnant and need help with bags and can I get the terminal trolley to take me to the gate- can we pay to get the service.


    There are no carts at Atlanta because the concourses are only connected by a train. Just request wheelchair service if you can't walk.


  • advices about terminals and suitcases
    Nov 28, 2016
    Hi, I'm travelling from montreal to Puerto rico both by Delta and my lay over in Atlanta is 2h 20min., I know I have to go from international terminal to domestic terminal S but I do not know if I have to pick up my suitcase and then go to the domestic flights or my suitcase will go directly to my next flight? please need advise, I'm travelling on december 22 with my daughter and I'm stressed


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time. The Plane Train connects all concoruses inside security.


    Thank you so much for your answer, so I should not have go to immigration again that is nice, and my bags should I have to pick them up o Delta will sent them to my next flight? you are very nice, thank you again.


    Correct, all you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, you don't have to do anything with your bags.


    Zap, thank you so much and you are amazing!!!


  • Connecting flight in ATL
    Nov 26, 2016
    I'm flying into domestic term South and need to make my connecting flight to Punta Cana in the international term. My layover is only 45 minutes. Is that enough time or will I need to book it?


    If all goes well, that is, your incoming flight is on time, 45 minutes is plenty of time. About 5 minutes to catch the PlaneTrain and 5 minutes to the int'l terminal. Of course, factor in the airline's required minimum boarding time before you're bumped. Delta normally required you be on board 15 minutes before scheduled departure.


  • Cancun - Atlanta - Amsterdam, ATL layover 1:45h
    Nov 25, 2016
    I'm travelling from Cancun to Amsterdam and layover time in Atlanta is 1:45h. Is this enough? All flights are operated by Delta. Thanks!


    That is barely enough time. 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 to your departure gate.


    Thank you! What if I miss my connection flight? Will they re-route me to the destination?


    Yes, they will book you on the next available flight to Amsterdam.


    Again, Thank you ZAP!


  • Flying in from Rome connecting to Columbus, MS
    Nov 23, 2016
    I'm flying in from Rome on Jan. 5th and wonder if the 2 hour connection time will be sufficient to go through customs and make my connecting flight to Columbus. I'd rather change flight now than be stuck in airport. Thank you.


    Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Rome is on-time.


  • 48 minutes layover !!!!!
    Nov 23, 2016
    Hi I'm travelling from Pittsburgh to France and my layover in Atlanta is 48 minutes only, is this enough time to switch from terminal S to I? First flight with Air France operated by Delta and second flight is Air France. Thank you


    You don't actually have to change terminals - you just take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.


  • Time to travel between terminal N and terminal S
    Nov 22, 2016
    I will arrive in ATL at 21:20 with turkish airlines (terminal N) and will depart at 22:25 with delta (terminal S). Is 1h 5 minutes enough? What if I decide to only have carry on luggage? Thanks!


    You do not arrive in Terminal N. you will arrive in the International Terminal. You do not have enough time for that connection. If you have already purchased your flight from Turkey, plan on spending the night in Atlanta.


  • Flight from Bham to Alt to Franfurt
    Nov 22, 2016
    I have just a little over an hour to make it from a domistic flight to an international flight. How will I make it?


    If both flights are on Delta then all you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart and board your flight. you have enough time.


  • Will I have enough time
    Nov 22, 2016
    Wanting to book a flight to PHX from Pittsburgh on Southwest. The flight stops in Atlanta; there is only 35 minutes b4 the connecting flight leaves. Will I have enough time between gates. Thanks


    Good luck. Atlanta is a very large airport. I'm surprised Southwest booked you with so little layover. Your lifesaver will be if your connecting flight's gate is nearby your arrival gate from PIT. And you'll be out of luck if your taxiing time is lengthy getting to the gate. Try to get info ahead of time the gate you're arriving at and your departure gate; this way you'll be prepared to run if you have to get to another concourse.


    All Southwest gates in ATL are close together.


    Thx. It scares me,since I don't like to fly anyway. I hesitated booking for that reason & am hoping the gates are like 'next to each other' as in Pittsburgh


    Thank you. That's is what I am hoping.


    The Southwest website says they occupy Concourse "C" gates 1-7, 9, 10, 12-17 and 20-22. All of these are relatively "close" together.
