  • C47 to E18
    Apr 2, 2013
    C47 to E18 in an hour...what's the most solid way? Also, I have a back I'll be checking in when I hit my first plane. Do I need to get it and recheck it in for the flight I take at E18? Or do they move the bags for me? I usually take a single carryon.


    What airport? When you mean "a back" do you mean "a backpack"? It depends how you check it - if you check it at the counter it will automatically be transferred to your second flight. If you check it at the gate with the bright colored tag as you do on a small aircraft, you have to claim it at the gate upon arrival.


    ATL back=bag, I was on my phone. I thought that everything would transfer, just wanted to make sure a bag leaving the US didn't require me to do anything different at the airport. Thanks, ZAP!


    If you're connecting domestic->international you don't have to do anything different. You should have enough time - just take the plane train between concourses.

    Need to get from B 32 to D 27 in 40 minutes


    On arrival at ATL, take the underground Plane Train arriving one level below the center of gates A19-34 & A18-A1 (take the escalator down) to Concourse D. At Concourse D, Go up the escalator/ elevator and head for gates D21-46. Hurry!

    Call your airline to arrange for wheelchair service. The trains in ATL are quite easy to use.


  • delta terminal a to dleta terminal b

    How long would it take - i have only 40 minutes to connect flight will i have enough time


    You only have to take the plane train one stop - shouldn't take more than 15 minutes at most (including walking within the concourses)


  • domestic (a, b, etc.) to intll (f)

    so if you take the train from your domestic arrival terminal in atl to the international terminal, do you have to go through security screening or can you directly go to the concourse?


    You can go directly to the concourse.


  • Gate A31 to Gate T8
    Mar 22, 2013
    How to get from gate A31 to gate T8 and is 40mn enough time ?


    On arrival at ATL, take the escalator down to the Plane Train, which arrives in the center of Concourse B between gates B19-36 & B1-18-B1. Your time should suffice.


  • gate b11 to f8 transfer time
    Mar 18, 2013
    is it possible to do gate b11 to gate f8 inside 40 minutes i land at 22.05 dl1850 and depart at 22.45 dl10 ?


    It's possible, you just have to take the plane train between concourses. However, if your first flight is late you'll probably end up spending the night in Atlanta.


  • Time needed from South Terminal E to A
    Mar 18, 2013
    I'm going to be arriving South Terminal E & departing South Terminal A with a 1 hr 14 min connect time. What is the fastest I can connect & how do I get from E to A? I've never been thru ATL before. Thanks!


    You just take the plane train between concourses. It shouldn't take more than 20 minutes. ATL, while very large, has a very simple layout.


    Thank you very much! I appreciate it!

    my iternany says i land at terminal s and get on another plane at treminal i. these terminals don't show up on a terminal map. where are they?


    Indeed that is confusing. North & South 'Terminals' are part of the Domestic Terminal, located at either side of the Atrium. They only function as baggage claim and check-in/ticketing and have no gates. Currently Alaska & Delta use the South Terminal. (open map: ). Delta uses Concourses A, C, D, E, F with corresponding gates; Alaska uses B, D, D & E gates. All Concourses - domestic & international - are connected by the underground 'Plane Train' stopping at the center of each Concourse. I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • Arr on Domestic Then Checkin for interna
    Mar 16, 2013
    I will be arriving on a domestic flight at Terminal D. I then will be going to Terminal F where I will need to check in for a flight on Korean Air. This is my first time at ATL so I am not sure what I need to do. Thanks.


    If your bags are checked through and you are checked in for your Korean flight just take the Plane Train from D to F.


  • Time

    How much time does it take to get from the int'l terminal to the south terminal on the plane train


    At ATL, part of Domestic passenger terminal are the North & South terminals on opposite sides, with only check-in & baggage claim facilities. While Concourse T is attached to the Main Terminal, separate parallel-running buildings house the Concourses A - D with corresponding gates (i.e., gate A19). As you arrive at the International Terminal, you will need to go through passport clearance, pick up your bag, go through customs clearance & (if continuing your journey) re-check-in your bags. Thereafter follow signs to the 'Plane Train' serving all concourses in the center of their gate arrangements. Also, the Terminal Connector Shuttle located outside the Arrivals level takes you to the Domestic Terminal - a 12-minute ride.


  • Hi, I have to get from gate B4 to F12?
    Mar 15, 2013
    How long will this take me?


    You arrive at Concourse B with gates B19-B36 at left, B18-B1 at right and the escalator/elevator to the Plane Train to Concourses in center; you get off the train at Concourse F (last stop), take elevator/escalator up to gates F12-14. Should not take more than 25 mins.


  • Terminal C to Terminal B
    Mar 13, 2013
    Ariving at Terminal C 47 and need to get to B16. How long with this take. Do I walk or take the train?


    C gates are in Midfield Concourse C/D, while B gates are in Midfield Concourse A/B - different buildings with no walkway connections. You need to take the escalator to the underground 'Plane Train', stopping at the Concourse center. At Concourse C it stops between gates C30-C57 & C22-C1; at Concourse A follow signs to gates A18-A1. My estimate would be half an hour transfer time.

    I will be flying on a Delta flight DL1872 and arrive at terminal A20 at 8:04am but need to get to C45 before 9:36am whats the quickest way to that terminal?


    Just take the plane train between concourses. 1:32 is plenty of time.
