  • Never flown internationally
    Aug 8, 2013
    Hi, I'll be flying Delta from MCO to ATL and then ATL to Frankfurt on Lufthansa. I have a two hour layover. Will this be enough time? Do I need to go through any security in ATL? I will NOT be checking any bags.


    No you will not have to go through security. You just have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse do the departure concourse - E or F.


  • Connecting flight to London
    Aug 6, 2013
    Hi there, perhaps you could provide some advice? I will be landing in ATL on a domestic flight from Las Vegas (using Delta), and then have 1 hour to connect for an international flight to London (using Air France). Is this enough time? Will I need to re-check my bags or go through security again? Many thanks in advance


    both Delta & AirFrance belong to the Skyteam Alliance - your bags will automatically be tansferred. You arrive at ATL at Midfield Concourse A/B, divided into A & B gates at its center, at A gates and simply walk over to B gates.


    Great, thank you very much!


  • Nervous about Plane Train
    Aug 6, 2013
    Hi, can someone ease my fears? Flying from DAL to ATL with 48 minutes to get to Concourse F and get onto flight to St. Lucia. Is the Plane Train the best way to get from one concourse to the other? I've read that it takes less than 20 minutes but if our flight is delayed at all, we will miss it. Will we have enough time to make our flight? It's the only one available each day :-( Stressed!


    Is there any way to find out what gates we will be using (other than the day of?) I believe Delta flies into South Terminal, we'd have to get from there to Concourse F quickly. Is there a direct way to contact the Flight to let them know we are on the train on our way? I doubt they would wait but if we are 3 minutes out, they might :-)


    You arrive at Terminal 1, (South & North terminals have no gate areas), Delta uses Concourses A - D with corresponding gates. On arrival, look at overhead screens to find your connecting flight & gate number for Concourse F (F gates), reached by the Plane Train only. You can make it in that time, unless your incoming plane is delayed.


    Thanks so much!


  • Connecting Flight
    Jul 29, 2013
    I have a layover for 51 minutes in ATL, I was wondering if there was any way to figure out which terminal I would be arriving at and which I would need to get to in order to board my new flight. I am coming from Port Columbus International Airport on Delta 1276 and need to get on my connecting plane in ATL Delta 4884. If anyone has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.


    Your flight from Columbus will probably arrive in concourse A or B and your flight to Myrtle Beach will probably depart from concourse C or D. All the concourses are connected by the Plane Train, which runs underground between the concourses. You can get between any two gates at ATL in less than half an hour.


  • Connection from Las Vegas to Paris
    Jul 29, 2013
    We shall be returning from Las Vegas on Delta flight 1702 landing in Atlanta at 16.50. We need to get connecting Air France flight 681 to Paris. Can anyone explain procedure/terminals etc. Many thanks


    You will arrive in one of the Delta concourses, likely T, A, B, C, or E and will depart from E or F. If you have to transfer between concourses the plane train runs beneath the concourses and connects them all within half an hour. You will not have to go through any immigration or security in Atlanta.


  • Where Is Terminal "S"
    Jul 29, 2013
    Flying into ATL on 8/7 with Delta from PHL Flt. 1494, Terminal S. leaving 58 minutes later from Terminal S but can't find it in Concourse diagram. Please help.


    No flights depart or arrive from "Terminal S". Terminal S is a check-in/baggage claim terminal also known as the Domestic Terminal. All Delta flights operate from one of the concourses - T, A, B, C, D, E, or F. You won't know the concourse until the day of your flight but they are all connected via the Plane Train and it doesn't take more than half an hour to get between any two gates.


    Thanks for the reply!! This is a great service.


  • Transferring terminals
    Jul 28, 2013
    My wife is traveling alone on July 28 and is concerned about making the transfer from Delta 1781 to Delta 4047. Will there be anyone available to assist her if she feels she needs the help? How long should the transfer take?


    Your wife should arrive at Concourse T, gate T4, of the Main terminal; from there she should take the escalator or elevator to the Plane Train (follow signs) to distant Concourse D, with departing gate D29. Estimated transfer time gate-to-gate 30 mins at most.


  • making a connection domestic to international
    Jul 20, 2013
    coming in from ORD thru ATL domestic- needing to catch a flight to UVF from international terminal gate A04 in 1 hr - will that be possible if all on time? What is quickest route/


    You will know your exact gates day of departure. All gates at ATL are connected beyond security with the Plane Train that runs underground between all the concourses. You don't have to go from a "domestic terminal" to "international terminal".


  • help!
    Jul 18, 2013
    how long to get from domestic terminal south to terminal 2?


    Atlanta does not have a "Terminal 2". It has a gate T2, that is directly connected to the Domestic terminal.


  • Transfer time From Terminal S to Terminal !`
    Jul 17, 2013
    I have 45 mins to catch my connection from Terminal T! having landed at Terminal S. what is quickest route please?


    You don't arrive at Terminal S or the International Terminal. You arrive at one of the concourses, T or A-F. The Plane train connects all concourses and is the best way to get between them. You can get between any two gates in ATL in less than 25 minutes.


  • Going from domestic to international
    Jul 16, 2013
    have a flt from HPN to ATL DL5030 arrives 12:37pm. Need to transfer to ATL to NRT DL295 departs 13:45pm How is this to be done so we do not miss the connecting flight?


    All you have to do is go from the concourse you arrive in to Concourse E/F via the Plane Train, which runs underground beneath the concourses. It should not take more than 15-20 minutes to get between the gates.


    To be more specific, you will depart from concourse F and likely arrive in D or E.


  • Gate B2 to gate E16 time
    Jul 12, 2013
    Hi, I'm arriving in Atlanta with a layover time of 1:15. I need to connect from gate B2 to gate E16 in this time. How long should this take and what is the fastest way? Thanks.


    Take the Plane Train - should take 15-20 minutes.


  • International connection
    Jul 11, 2013
    I'm thinking about buying a ticket where I'd be connecting in Atlanta, coming from St. Louis on Delta and then flying KLM to Amsterdam with a one hour layover. Is one hour a long enough layover to get to the international terminal? Thanks very much.


    Yes, that should be long enough if your first flight is on-time. However, if there's another STL-ATL flight a little earlier, I'd pick that one instead.


  • Connecting Flight Time - Rusty with ATL
    Jul 1, 2013
    Hi, I'm arriving in ATL and continuing on to CRW. My connection time is 1:08. I think my flight arriving in ATL will be in concourse A, my connection in concourse D. Will I have enough time to make my connection, with Plane Train beig downstairs, etc. I haven't been thru ATL in about 6 months, so I'm a little rusty. Please advise.


    Yes, you can use the plane train to get between any two gates in under a half hour.


  • connecting to southwest
    Jun 25, 2013
    I am connecting from 1 southwest flight to another southwest flight and have an hour. Will that be enought if i walk instead of taking the plane train. We land at 10:35 and depart at 11:35.


    All Southwest flights not operated by Airtran are on the same concourse, C, so you wouldn't have to take the plane train anyway.
