I am traveling on southwest with carry-on bags. I have 50 minutes from landing in atlanta to take-off for dominican republis in int'l terminal. Do i need to go thru security again in atlanta? is 50 minutes enough time?
Southwest does not use the International Terminal for Departures. All you have to do on your way to Punta Cana is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Concourse C. You have enough time.
I've just had notification of a flight time change from Newark to Atlanta, flying Delta. I need to change to a Virgin Atlantic flight to Manchester but the new layover time is only 43 minutes. Is this realistic or should I be looking to change to a later flight to UK?
That is possible but it leaves no time to spare. There will be no later flights to Manchester so you'd have to switch to an earlier flight to Atlanta if you want to make a switch. You could also just ask for a refund due to the schedule change and just book a nonstop flight from New York to Manchester.
i have flights on virgin from Manchester with onward connection in Atlanta to FT Lauderdale - what concourse does the Manchester flight land at and which concourse is the flight to Ft L from ? 2hrs 15 mins connection enough time ?
Yes, that is enough time. You will arrive in Concourse E or F (likely F), go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse. You will likely depart from T, A, or B.
I'll be flying from San Jose, Costa Rica to Atlanta and then onto JFK (before then getting another flight onto LHR - as a British Citizen). I have booked all the flights under 1 transaction with Delta, and both the SJO to ATL and ATL to JFK legs are provided by them. There are 2 hours between arrival at ATL and departure to JFK - will this be enough time to deplane and make the next one? Thanks in advance!
Yes, that should be enough time. In Atlanta you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the plane train to your departure concourse and gate.
I am flying from Jamaica to Washington Reagan National airport on Delta. I have a 1hr 30min layover in Atlanta Is this enough time to get through US Immigration, claim bags, go through US Customs, re-check bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to departure gate?
That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
