  • International to domestic
    Mar 8, 2014
    Hi, I will arrive on April 8 from Europe at The international Terminal and have connection to Miami at South terminal. I arrive with Airfrance and continue with Airfrance operated by delta. Since I am traveling with my family( wife and a 7 years old kid), I have 2 questions: 1. Do I have to check-out the luggages and then to check them in again? 2. I am a little worried about the 1h and 45 min connectionte between the flights, will be enough? And, if you have any tips regarding fast-passing, please let me know. Thank you! Alin


    Yes, you will claim your luggage after immigration, go through customs, and then immediately re-check your baggage with Delta. You will then go through security and take the plane train to your departure concourse (you don't actually have to go to the South Terminal). You should have enough time and if you do miss your connection, Delta runs lots of flights between Atlanta and Miami.


  • Minimum connection btw bahams and domestic
    Feb 9, 2014
    Hi all, we have to reserve our flight for the next summer vacations and we have a flight from Bahamas to Tampa with an 1 hour 35 min stop in atlanta. Is this enough? Thank you!


    Yes, that should be enough time. If you are coming from Freeport or Nassau you will actually pre-clear US Immigration and customs there vs. in Atlanta. All concourses in Atlanta are connected inside security by the Plane Train.


  • Flight information on a connection
    Feb 8, 2014
    Hi, how can I know where my arrival flight and departure flight are listed (terminal and concourse) because I have 45 minutes between each? Have my flights with Delta there are my flight numbers DL1747 DL1072 ! Thanks


    Delta uses numerous concourses at ATL. All are connected inside security by the Plane Train. If your first flight is on-time 45 minutes should be enough time.


  • transferring from a domestic flight to an international flight on delt

    we have a 56 minute time frame from landing at ATL to get to our international connection at ATL flying Delta airlines is that enough time to make it and what is the best route/way to go.


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that is enough time. You just have to take the Plane Train, which runs inside security, from your arrival concourse to Concourse E/F.


  • Going from B34 to F4 tomorrow (01/23)

    We have a little over an hour to connect. Can I use the plane/train or can we enlist one of the Customer Service carts to take us end to end??


    Yes, use the plane train. You will have more than enough time. it shouldn't take more than 20 minutes.


    Thanks. I appreciate the quick reply.


  • am I going to have enough time?
    Jan 20, 2014
    I have a layover at ATL, going to Puerto Vallarta, I only have 23 minutes to next flight. Am I going to have enough time?


    You will have to hope that your first flight is on-time and run, especially because you will probably have to take the Plane Train since your PVR flight will depart from E/F and your inbound flight will probably not arrive in E/F.


  • Better off taking a delay and rush to the next flight
    Jan 19, 2014
    Hello , would it be better to have a layover instead of rushing to the next flight when you've only 30 minutes ? Give a person time to get to the next flight , since that terminal huge . I been to Atlanta Airport first time . In the near future I'll be going through it again , their has to be an easier way to get through there.


    30 minutes is tough for a transfer in Atlanta and doesn't leave much room for any delays. I don't know how much longer of a "layover" you're asking about though.


    Anything an hour or more flight i been looking at , has an 30 minute to get to your next flight , that's not giving much time .


    Yeah, I would go with an hour if I could.


  • Enough time
    Jan 15, 2014
    We are traveling on Saturday jan 25 only have 50 minutes between flights we change from southwest to AirTran will that be enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time. All Southwest and AirTran flights are on the same concourse.


  • Connecting in Atlanta
    Jan 8, 2014
    If i am just making a connection in Atlanta for a domestic flight, does this mean I don't have to go to the terminal....just go from my landing concourse to my departing one? I do not intend to check a bag, or would that make any difference? Thanks!


    Yes, you don't have to go in the terminal, just between concourses if necessary. Procedure is the same with or without checked bags.


  • Do I have enough time
    Jan 7, 2014
    I am flying from Phl to ATL then on to MSY all Delta flights. When I reach ATL i only have 30 minutes to reach my gate is this enough time. I know ATL is a large airport.


    Yes, but you'll have to hurry. All gates at ATL are connected by the plane train which runs inside security. If you miss your connection, Delta has many flights to New Orleans that you can be rebooked on (unless you're already on the last flight).


  • 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.

    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.

    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.
