  • Can I find my way?
    Jan 7, 2014
    Flying from Tupelo, MS (Silver) to Atlanta (Delta) to Pensacola. Very intimidated by Atlanta airport and could use some pointers on where to go. Plan to carry-on bag. Thanks,


    Check-in for your flights online before your flight. That way you will have your Delta boarding pass ahead of time. You will arrive in concourse E and likely depart from concourse A, B, C, or D. All concourses are connected beyond security by the plane train. All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse and gate after you claim your carry-on bag at the gate (unless it is very small you will have to gate-check it in Tupelo as the Saab 340 aircraft Silver flies have very small overhead bins). If you have a smartphone, you can download the Delta App, which may make things easier.


    Thank you sooooo much! Very helpful info:-)


    Can you walk from one concourse to another? If I check-in online before my flight and print my boarding pass, is there anything else I will need to do?


    Also, will I have to go to the domestic terminal or just from one concourse to another?


    It's just one concourse to another, the international "concourses" are just like the other concourses except that they have immigration facilities in the basement for international flights. You can walk through the tunnel between the concourses, but it's faster to take the plane train. No, if you have all your boarding passes you don't have to do anything else.


  • Connecting Flight
    Jan 5, 2014
    Delta Vacations booked me on a trip where I only have 51 minutes to make my connecting flight. I'm arriving from another U.S. city into Atlanta & then have said time to make another Delta flight that is going to Bermuda. Can someone help me as to what to expect? Will this be enough time to change planes? Any idea how far I will have to run on foot from one gate to another? P.S. I plan to bring a carry-on bag only so I won't be checking any luggage.


    You will arrive into one of the several concourses and depart from concourse E/F. All concourses at ATL are connected beyond security by the plane train and you can reach them within 20 minutes. If your first flight is on-time you will have enough time.


  • Pit to Atl further Atl to Lir
    Jan 1, 2014
    Hi, We are trying to figure out what terminal we are arriving to in Atl and what terminal we would be flying out of.. Airline is Delta. There is only a 52 min layover in Atl before flight to Lir departs. Would this be sufficient time?


    All gates at ATL are connected beyond security by the Plane Train. You will arrive one of the numerous domestic concourses and depart from E/F. If your first flight arrives on-time you will be OK.


    Thank you for your help!


  • Connecting between C and D in Atlanta
    Dec 18, 2013
    Is using the train to get to Terminal C from terminal D the only option. I have only 40 minutes to connect between flights if all is on time


    There is a walkway in the tunnel that runs alongside the train, but taking the train is faster. You should be able to get between your gates in 10-15 minutes. Note that C and D are not separate terminals but merely concourses of the same terminal.

    Help to calm down my worries! I'm arriving from Syracuse via Delta Airline at ATL and connecting a flight to San Jose Costa Rica. I only have 1 hr layover in Atlanta. Do I have enought itme to catch my connecting flight and and do I have to go through security in Atlanta? can someone please give me an idea how I get to the terminal to catch my Cosata rica flight/ thanks much!


    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will not have to go through security. All gates at ATL are connected beyond security by the plane train and can be reached within 20 minutes of each other.


  • Connecting between Terminal N and Terminal I
    Dec 10, 2013
    Tomorrow I'm taking DL975 from Portland (arrived Terminal N Gate E29 today) connecting to DL38 (departing Terminal I Gate A4 today). I'll have 55 minutes to connect, which is apparently allowed by Delta but seems tight to me. It would be great if my checked bag makes the connection, too! Any tips for making the connection? I recognize the gates tomorrow are unlikely to be the same as today, but figure the terminals will be the same?


    That should have read DL38 will depart from Terminal I Gate F4 today...


    You do not have to go between any two terminals. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates at ATL are connected beyond security by the plane train and are reachable within 20 minutes of each other.


    Thanks for your advice.


  • 50 min?
    Dec 9, 2013
    Is is possible to get from concourse T to F in 50 min? I have no bags to check but Im catching an international flight. Is this possible? Also, how much time does it take to get from T to F on the plane train? Thanks in advance!


    If it helps, I'll be arriving at atl on flight dl 1183 (orf to atl) then connecting to dl 681 (atl to sdq).... since I only have a little time, I'm trying to figure out the best way to navigate the airport. Reading all the post below certainly helped :-), but since I do not actually know my gate yet, all I can do is make plans A, B and C... Thanks again!


    You probably won't arrive at T - those are usually flights on bigger planes. You'll probably arrive at A or C. All gates at ATL can be reached within 20 minutes from each other. You should have enough time if your flight from Norfolk is on time.


    Thank you SO much! This site and all of your answers have been super helpful in lessening my worries :-)


  • Flying from Amsterdam - ATL - El Paso
    Dec 8, 2013
    How it works this connection? At which Terminal will i arrive, I know have to go to terminal S..Thanks


    Atlanta Airport has no Terminal 5 (most likely it is Terminal S - the South Terminal which is used only for ticketing & baggage check for Alaska & Delta airlines. You will arrive at the International Terminal, at either Concourses E or F, where you need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs & re-check-in your bags where indicated. The Domestic Terminal have Concourses T, A, B, C & D with corresponding gates; After customs clearance take the Plane Train to your connecting Concourse. The overhead screens will indicate flight & gate number of your connecting flight.
