  • Connecting from Santa Ana to Montreal
    Nov 12, 2013
    I have a 52min layover arriving on Delta from California and connecting to an international flight to Montreal also on Delta. What terminal do I arrive in and do I have enough time? Do I stay secure or have to go through security again? Thanks so much.


    You will arrive in one of the several concourses (likely T, A, or E) and also depart from one of those concourses. All gates at ATL are connected beyond security. The Plane Train connects all concourses underground. You will not have to go through any security or immigration procedures in Atlanta.


  • Delta from Clt to Atl to Paris
    Nov 11, 2013
    We are flying to Paris (from Charlotte) on Delta/Air France on Thursday. We arrive ATL at 7:47 and depart at 9:00. On our return flight, we have only an hour layover in Atlanta. Is this enough time on both ends?


    On your way there that should be enough time. All you will have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E/F for your departure. On the return I don't think that's enough time as you will have to go through US Immmigration, claim your bags, re-check them, and go through security before taking the plane-train to your departure concourse. Delta has numerous flights from Atlanta to Charlotte that you can be re-booked onto with a much more comfortable connection

    My wife is flying to London Heathrow from Houston TX via Atlanta on Delta airlines Flight no DL5110 connecting with flight DL84 could you tell us what terminal she will be arriving in at Atlanta and what terminal she will be leaving from and what is the distance and time between terminals


    She will arrive at one of the concourses (it appears usually concourse E) and depart from an International concourse (E or F). If she has to change concourses she does so with the plane train, which runs inside security. All Delta gates at ATL can be reached from one another in less than 30 minutes.


    The concourse she will arrive at you say E is that the same as the International E concourse


    Yes, it is. Note that she may also arrive in C or D though. Delta connection has nearly a hundred gates at ATL.

    Our flight from Raleigh to Atlanta lands only 1 hour before we leave for Costa Rica on an International flight. I booked the flight through Orbitz for my wife and I and we are not checking any bags. Just carrying on. Being that the flight is on time, will we make our connecting flight?


    On arrival at ATL take the underground 'Plane Train' which stops at the center of each Concourse. The International Terminal has Concourses E & F with corresponding gates - get off at either E or F (overhead screens will indicate flight & gate numbers). You have enough time.


    Thanks! Will we need to go through security again being that it's an international flight?


    No, there is no security inspection when going between concourses

    We will be flying back from NAS through ATL and have only a 90 minute layover, will we have enough time to make our connection?


    Yes, you will pre-clear US immigration in Nassau so you will only have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If they're not in the same concourse you'll use the plane train which connects all gates beyond security.

    I have 40 minutes to catch my International KLM / Delta flight to Amsterdam is this enough time


    If your first flight is domestic and on-time you will have enough time. You just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to E/F.


  • transer time between gatee

    I am flying from orlando to atlanta with delta then taking airfrance to paris. I only have 1 hour for the transfer. Is that enough time if i send my luggage all the way from orlando directly to paris


    Yes, that should be enough time. You just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E/F where your Air France flight will depart.

    Hi Im arriving at Atlanta from Las Vegas on 1st October with a connection then back too London. I have one hour to get on the London bound plane in Atlanta, where would I arrive (both flights booked together with Delta at same time) and whats typical times to get to international departure gate. My checked luggage would be automatically transferred wont it?, help appreciated, Julian (UK resident)


    Yes, on the way to London your bags will be automatically transferred. Your flight will depart from concourses E or F and could arrive at pretty much any of the concourses (although likely A or B)

    coming in ondelta from little rocck connecting toBA flight to london whts the easiest way for elderly


    Were all of your tickets bought on the same reservation? If they weren't and you have checked baggage you'll have to claim it, then you have to take a shuttle bus that connects you to the International terminal where you can check your bags with British Airways. If you don't have checked bags, or they are checked all the way through to London, you can just take the plane train from your arrival concourse to Terminal E/F where your British Airways flight will depart. Make sure to get your British Airways boarding pass as soon as you can, preferably before you leave Little Rock via their website.


  • no smoking in ATL terminal D as indicate
    Sep 2, 2013
    Your app says there is smoking near D 16. However I was told I would need to go to terminal C or E. please update your app. I would have stayed where I started at B longer. I had a 2 hour layover due to a delay.


  • Connecting flights possible?
    Aug 30, 2013
    I have a flight Monday Sept 2 from Fort Lauderdale to Atlanta on Delta concourse D and then a international connecting flight one hour later on Korean (concourse E) Airlines. Is that possible to make?


    If your first flight is on-time, yes, it is possible. It should only take about 15 minutes to get between your gates on the plane train.


    Would my luggage go all the way from Fort Lauderdale to my final destination in Cambodia with a plane change in Korea? Or do I have to get my luggage in Atlanta and route it to my final destination? Thank you for your help.


    Were all your tickets bought on the same reservation? If so yes, you shouldn't have to touch your baggage until you get to Cambodia. You definitely won't have to claim your baggage in Atlanta if that's the case.

    I am arriving from Panama with Delta and connecting in Atlanta to Amsterdam. I only have 1 hour and 30 minutes. Is this enough time to make the connection? Thanks for your help


    You will really have to hope your first flight is on-time and you will have to hurry. You will clear US immigration, claim your baggage, go through customs, re-check your baggage with Delta, and then go back through security all in that time.


    Thanks for your reply. In case my first flight is on time....will the 1 hour and 30 minutes be enough to do all those processes you mention? Or should i consider change the ticket?


    I would try what you have - it looks like the Panama City-Atlanta flight gets in around 1 PM and if that's the case then you're on the ATL-AMS flight that leaves a little after 3 PM? If so, then if you do miss your connection you can just be rebooked on one of the 3 later flights to Amsterdam.
