  • First time flyer
    Apr 26, 2013
    I'm flying from newport news to Atlanta then to Dallas. First time flyer and atl airport is use so advice would be great. I arrive at Atlanta terminal S at 847pm and depart terminal S at 10pm. How do I know which concourse, it's not on my itinerary? Also.. Any other tips would be great.


    You can get the concourses from the day of your flight. All the concourses at ATL are connected by the plane train and it's a very simple connection procedure.


    Thanks so much.

    Hi! I have an international flight arriving at 5:50 AM, connecting flight to DTW is 7:25 AM. Will I have enough time to collect bags, clear customs and make my flight?? How far is the domestic terminal from International? I'm a US passport holder...if that helps?


    Can you be more specific about where you're connecting and what airline(s) you are flying?


  • Domestic South To International Terminal
    May 10, 2013
    we will have 1 hr and 5 min to go from Domestic south terminal Delta Airline to International Terminal. Is it enough time? Which is the shortest way? We will arrive in ATL at 9:00am. This is our first time using ATL airport. Thanks!!


    Your domestic flight will arrive at one of the lettered concourses, not the south terminal. You just have to take the plane train from the concourse you come in to to concourse E where your international flight will depart from.


    I saw on ATL website. They have terminal F for international. Since we have really short connection time for international flight, we want to plan ahead. Please advice.


    Delta uses both E and F for international flights.


    I am coming in to ATL from Nassau on 5/27 at 7:30 pm and connecting to a flight to CLT at 8:50 - is this a problem with my connection time?

  • E6 to A21- 1 hour 10 min?
    Apr 12, 2013
    I arrive on an international flight 6:20 PM @ gate E6 with only 1hour 15 min to clear customs and get to terminal A21. I am debating whether to fly with only a carry on or to check a bag in. How much more time does claim and rechecking your bag add? Would love to bring home some rum but not at the risk of missing my flight.


    Not checking a bag will certainly make things faster. However, if you're going somewhere where delta has a lot of flights you it might be worth risking. Also, while your international flight will arrive at E, there's no way to know your next flight will depart from A unless your flight is today or tomorrow (and even then it may change).


    Thanks ZAP. Yes I'm not flying back until next week but I have looked at yesterday, today and tomorrows gates and they have been consistent. I flying from Santo Domingo to Los Angeles there is one more flight to LA after mine. How long on average these days does it take to clear customs mid week? Has the sequester made any difference?


  • Concourse C to D
    Apr 12, 2013
    Can we make it from concourse C to Concourse D in 10 minutes? Of so how?


    Hardly - Between gates C31 & C1 is the escalator to the Plane Train, take train arriving between gates D22 & D16.


    It will probably take about 10 minutes to get between the two gates. Do you really have a connection that tight?


  • Concourse D to C
    Apr 4, 2013
    D11 to C12....I have only 45 min for my connection...Will it be enough...What is the fastest way to get to C12 from D11... Thanks for your help....


    On arrival at ATL, walk from D11 to D16, go down the escalator & take the Plane Train to Concourse C, where it arrives downstairs of (upstairs)gates C30-57 & C22-C1. 45 mins should suffice.


  • A15 to E29
    Apr 4, 2013
    I have 40 minutes to get from A15 to E29. What is the fastest route?


    On arrival at ATL, walk towards gate A18, go down the escalator & take the Plane Train to Concourse E of the International Terminal; then take the escalator up - follow signs gates E26-37 at right side. 4 train stops - hurry!


  • terminal
    Apr 3, 2013
    where is terminal S.


    It's the domestic terminal where you check in for domestic flights. You then take the plane train to your concourse (unless your flight leaves from the T-gates.


  • Intl flight

    Need to go from B25 to E10 with a one hour layover. Can it be done?


    Your transfer time suffices. On Arrival at ATL, you arrive at Concourse B, where you are near (next to Gate the escalator down to the Plane Train and arrive by train at Concourse E of the New International Terminal's Concourse E; go up the escalator and follow signs to Gates E11-1 .


  • 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.


  • Transfer
    Apr 2, 2013
    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!

    traveling with elderly mother in wheel chair we ;and in concourse b and need to depart concourse c....39 min. layover. how much time do i need and is the train hard to get on to


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


  • delta terminal a to dleta terminal b
    Mar 29, 2013
    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)
    Mar 28, 2013
    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.
