  • Transit time

    My flight DL1654 arrives at 9:01pm. I need to catch my next flight DL0105 at the international at 10:10pm. Do I have enough time? Do I need to go through security again?


    Yes you have enough time. On arrival at ATL, take the underground Plane Train to the International Terminal (check first with overhead screens for flight & gate number - (E gates or F gates - IT-E or IT-F). I suggest you open then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

    Is a 2 hour layover enough time to connect when you are arriving ATL on an International flight


    Yes, it should be.


    ATL is huge - with 9 terminals - for international arrival procedure and domestic or international flight connections, I suggest you open then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    Actually, ATL does not have 9 terminals, it has 9 concourses.

    Arriving 6:20PM Delta connector and departing KLM international. Time between is 83 minutes if flight on time; is that enough?:


    If you bought both flights on a single ticket, you won't need to pick up bag & re-check in with KLM. You arrive most likely on Concourse C and need to go to the center of the concourse, take the escalator down and take the underground 'Plane Train' stops at the center of each Concourse. Your KLM Concourse is F (F gates). You have enough time in both instances.


  • Any short connection line at passport control?
    Apr 7, 2014
    I will fly from MEX to ATL with DL366 arriving to ATL at 17:22, then connecting with domestic flight DL2112 at 19:34 for ORD. Shall I have enough time to check with passport control, take my luggage, re-check it and pass through security check? There exists any short-connection line at passport control, just like in JFK?


    That is not a short connection. You should have plenty of time.

    Each concourse has escalators and elevators leading to the plane train and plenty of signs.


  • Pit to Atl to Cun

    We arrive and have 52 minutes to make connection. Traveling AirTran on both legs of the journey. Will we have enough time?


    You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time. All Southwest/Airtran flights at ATL are on the same concourse.


  • Travel time between gates
    Mar 10, 2014
    How do I get from gate c30 to t4 and how long will it take? I have 50 min. between flights


    Somewhere between 10 and 20 minutes, depending on how fast you walk.


  • International to domestic

    Hi, I will arrive on April 8 from Europe at The international Terminal and have connection to Miami at South terminal. I arrive with Airfrance and continue with Airfrance operated by delta. Since I am traveling with my family( wife and a 7 years old kid), I have 2 questions: 1. Do I have to check-out the luggages and then to check them in again? 2. I am a little worried about the 1h and 45 min connectionte between the flights, will be enough? And, if you have any tips regarding fast-passing, please let me know. Thank you! Alin


    Yes, you will claim your luggage after immigration, go through customs, and then immediately re-check your baggage with Delta. You will then go through security and take the plane train to your departure concourse (you don't actually have to go to the South Terminal). You should have enough time and if you do miss your connection, Delta runs lots of flights between Atlanta and Miami.


  • Minimum connection btw bahams and domestic
    Feb 9, 2014
    Hi all, we have to reserve our flight for the next summer vacations and we have a flight from Bahamas to Tampa with an 1 hour 35 min stop in atlanta. Is this enough? Thank you!


    Yes, that should be enough time. If you are coming from Freeport or Nassau you will actually pre-clear US Immigration and customs there vs. in Atlanta. All concourses in Atlanta are connected inside security by the Plane Train.


  • Flight information on a connection
    Feb 8, 2014
    Hi, how can I know where my arrival flight and departure flight are listed (terminal and concourse) because I have 45 minutes between each? Have my flights with Delta there are my flight numbers DL1747 DL1072 ! Thanks


    Delta uses numerous concourses at ATL. All are connected inside security by the Plane Train. If your first flight is on-time 45 minutes should be enough time.


  • transferring from a domestic flight to an international flight on delt
    Jan 31, 2014
    we have a 56 minute time frame from landing at ATL to get to our international connection at ATL flying Delta airlines is that enough time to make it and what is the best route/way to go.


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that is enough time. You just have to take the Plane Train, which runs inside security, from your arrival concourse to Concourse E/F.


  • Going from B34 to F4 tomorrow (01/23)
    Jan 22, 2014
    We have a little over an hour to connect. Can I use the plane/train or can we enlist one of the Customer Service carts to take us end to end??


    Yes, use the plane train. You will have more than enough time. it shouldn't take more than 20 minutes.


    Thanks. I appreciate the quick reply.


  • am I going to have enough time?
    Jan 20, 2014
    I have a layover at ATL, going to Puerto Vallarta, I only have 23 minutes to next flight. Am I going to have enough time?


    You will have to hope that your first flight is on-time and run, especially because you will probably have to take the Plane Train since your PVR flight will depart from E/F and your inbound flight will probably not arrive in E/F.


  • Better off taking a delay and rush to the next flight
    Jan 19, 2014
    Hello , would it be better to have a layover instead of rushing to the next flight when you've only 30 minutes ? Give a person time to get to the next flight , since that terminal huge . I been to Atlanta Airport first time . In the near future I'll be going through it again , their has to be an easier way to get through there.


    30 minutes is tough for a transfer in Atlanta and doesn't leave much room for any delays. I don't know how much longer of a "layover" you're asking about though.


    Anything an hour or more flight i been looking at , has an 30 minute to get to your next flight , that's not giving much time .


    Yeah, I would go with an hour if I could.


  • Enough time
    Jan 15, 2014

    Yes, that should be enough time. All Southwest and AirTran flights are on the same concourse.
