  • Flying from Dublin to Atlanta and then on to Philadelphia
    Jan 23, 2016

    I've never flown transatlantic so I'm hoping some of you fine people can help me. I am flying from Dublin to Atlanta with a two hour layover before my flight to Philadelphia departs, I'm just worried that this might not be enough time to get from one to the other. I'd really appreciate anybodys opinion or advice.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You have plenty of time.

     

    Thanks a million, I appreciate it!

     

    Doing the same in October two hour layover to McO thanks very much

    Before I book with two small children please can you confirm how easy it is to transfer from terminal S to I on a connecting flight from Orlando to Atlanta to Heathrow London and also how long does it take? Thanks in advance

     

    You don't have to transfer from "Terminal S". All you have to do in Atlanta is take the Plane train from your Arrival concourse (likely A, B, C, or T) to your departure concourse (E or F). The plane train runs constantly inside security and the transfer shouldn't take more than 15 minutes,

     

    You make it sound easy! What about the hold luggage?

     

    You won't have to do anything with your luggage - there is no US Customs when exiting the US.

    Which concourse is "terminal S"?

     

    "Terminal S" is not a concourse. It is the check-in area for Delta Domestic flights that is connected to concourse T. If you are making a connection on Delta through Atlanta it may say "Terminal S" on your reservation but you don't actually go to Terminal S, you can go directly to your departure concourse.

    Hi, I am flying with delta from RDU to ATL and will reach at 1:46 PM. My connecting flight to SFO is in 39 min (layover) at 2:25 PM. Will I be able to make in time for my connecting flight? I am worried since ATL is a huge airport. Is my arrival and departure will be on the same terminal and concourse? Do I have to go through security again? Thanks!

     

    Your flights may not be in the same concourse. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You can take the Plane Train directly from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse if you have to change concourses. You have enough time if your flight from RDU is on-time.

    Hello I am flying from Baltimore to Atlanta the flight gets there at 5:04 and my Amsterdam flight takes off at 5:53 I will be able to make the flight right? Typically how long does it take for the plane train to go from T to F?

     

    Taking the Plane Train from T to F takes about 10 minutes. You should have enough time if your flight from Baltimore arrives on-time.

     

    My plane leaves from F terminal does the plane train let me off on the arrivals floor or departures?

     

    F is a concourse not a terminal. You will only have access to the departures areas of F since you are departing.

    We are flying from Des Moines to Atlanta (arrival 9:04 am; departure 9:45 am) and then on to Mexico City. Will we have to go through security again for the flight to Mexico City? Is this enough connection time? Are we better off carrying on or luggage or checking it? Pros and cons? Thank you.

     

    No, you don't have to go through security. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. If you don't check bags you won't have to worry about the bags making the connection on the way to Mexico City and won't have to collect them to go through US Customs on the way back. If you can make it without a checked bag, do that.

     

  • Time to make connecting flight to London?

    Will she have to go through security again in Atlanta? Will she have to recheck luggage or will it be automatically transferred to the London plane without her doing anything? Do you know which terminals she will be arriving at and leaving from? Thank you for your help, ZAP. She is an inexperienced traveler.

     

    You don't have to ask the same question twice.

     

    Forgive me

    My daughter will be flying from Louisville to Atlanta, arriving in Atlanta at 9:04 pm. She is scheduled to depart Atlanta for London at 10:10 pm. Will this be enough time for her to make that flight?

     

    Yes, that is enough time if her flight from Louisville is on-time. All she has to do is go from her arrival gate to her departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

     

    Will she have to go through security again in Atlanta? Will she have to recheck luggage or will it be automatically transferred to the London plane with out her doing anything? Do you know which terminals she will be arriving at and leaving from? Thank you for your help.

     

    No, she doesn't have to go through security or do anything with her baggage in Atlanta on the way to London. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. She doesn't have to go to any terminal - she just goes from her arrival gate to her departure gate.

    I know how to get from Atlanta Inter'l concourse E thru immigration, collect luggage, clear customs, & onto ground transportation. If I arrive via Korean Airlines with only carry on luggage, have an electronic boarding pass with my next Delta flight into Orlando-MCO, can I use the plane train to get to the Delta gate if I don't clear customs. Or, do I have to clear customs and take the outside shuttle bus the domestic terminal and start over as though I had just arrived at the airport?

     

    In Atlanta you will go through US Immigration and customs, then go through security and then you will be at the Plane Train, you can take it directly to your departure concourse since you will already have your Delta boarding pass.

     

    Thanks for your comment.Let me see if I understand. Once you go thru customs, you are out of the "Airport Sterile Area", and are at ground transportation. I would then go up to the departure level and go thru the international security and on to the Plane Train. My connection is short. Is there a way to transfer to the Plain Train without exiting thru customs and without leaving the Airport Sterile Area? I will be arriving mid morning next Saturday. When a left Atl on Saturday, 12/19, mid morning, security took 1.2 hours.

     

    No, you slightly misunderstand. Once you clear Customs in Atlanta there is a special security checkpoint that leads back into the secure area and the Plane Train. There is no way that you can enter the US without going through US Customs.

     

    Thanks for your help. After looking at the terminal map, I think I now understand. The special security checkpoint after customs is not the same as the main security on the international departure level that departing travelers use after checking their luggage. Correct?

    I am flying home to the UK. I will be flying from DTW (Detroit Wayne) to ATL then from ATL to MAN (Manchester England). It's all on one ticket. Will I have to collect my checked luggage at ATL and re-check?

     

    No, you don't have to do anything in Atlanta with your baggage on your way to Manchester. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.

     

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi, I`m flying from Charleston 8CHS) to Atlanta (ATL) and then to London (LHR). I`ll go through customs in CHS. I`ll arrive in ATL at 6:29 pm, my flight for London departs 7:20 pm, leaving 51 minutes. Havent booked the flight yet, will I make that connection?

     

    Actually you won't go through customs in Charleston. There is no US Customs when departing the US. You will go through Security in Charleston. Yes, you can make that connection if your flight from CHS is on-time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    Hi, if I fly from Jacksonville to Toronto, and have only 1h transit in Atlanta, is it enough? US immigration, custom check will be done in Jax, right?

     

    There is no US Customs or Immigration when leaving the US. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You have enough time. You will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs when you get to Toronto.
