  • Delta Airlines - Orlando to Montreal with 58 min layover in Atlanta
    Oct 31, 2016

    I am traveling from Orlando (MCO) to Montreal (YUL) with a layover in Atlanta (ATL) for only 58 mins. I would like to know if that would be enough time to change planes, as I am guessing that there is no US immigration or baggage claims to be done in ATL for my flight to YUL. Thanks!

    We're arriving Nov 1on Delta from Panama City Beach, Fl and leaving 47 minutes later in Delta to Cancun. Do we have enough time to make the connection ?

     

    Yes, it's possible if the first flight is on-time. You just have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart.

    I'm arriving on a Delta flight from Nassau then getting a connection to Manchester UK - which terminals do I have to travel between? are they both in the international area and how much time is required baring in mind we will have to collect baggage and clear security?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau, both flights should be in Concourse E or F. You do not have to claim your baggage or go through security in Atlanta. An hour is sufficient.

     

    Thanks, We are travelling in separate tickets so assume we will have to clear immigration and baggage

    I have a connection coming from Pensacola on Novemer 15 at 5pm. My flight to Amsterdam leaves at 5:43pm Is this enough time?

     

    Yes, that's enough time if the flight from Pensacola is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security and all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • Internation transit on one ticket Bonaire - Atlanta - Amsterdam

    I am ticketed to fly Delta from Bonaire to Atlanta, connecting to a KLM flight to Amsterdam. Will this be from the same terminal / concourse? Will I need to reclaim baggage?

     

    You will arrive in Terminal E or 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 to your departure gate.

     

    Is the luggage collection "place" marked clearly / Where can I get the information?

     

    What information? You will be forced to go through the baggage hall after you go through US Immigration and must pass through it to get to US Customs, so you really can't miss it. There will be several baggage carousels - there will be monitors showing which carousel your flight's bags will be on.

     

    I have been told by KLM that I won't have to collect and recheck my baggage, it will be checked through from Bonaire to Amsterdam. Is this possible when everything else I have read says I must collect it.

     

    Thank you ZAP. You gave all the information I needed.

     

    Same thing here!

     

    KLM told me the same.

    I will arrive in Atlanta at 6 23 pm from Washington DC and then have a connecting flight to Johannesburg departing at 7 15 pm. I am concerned that this is not enough time to make this connection. Where do I need to clear immigration? In Atlanta or DC?

     

    There is no US Immigration when leaving the US. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. You have enough time if the flight from Washington is on-time.

    Flying from MEX to ATL and connecting to DTW, do I have to cross immigration then collect my luggage and go to Domestic South Terminal to check-in again? or I collect my luggage until DTW?

     

    In Atlanta you will arrive in Concourse E or 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 directly to your departure concourse. You do not have to go to the domestic terminal.

     

    What If Fabian decided to stay in ATL?? Can one take the checked bag and go through security with it and on to outise the airport? Or do security people check the tags??

    fly Delta to Atlanta from Nashville and only have 1 hour before Virgin connecting flight to Manchester. Worried about finding my way round Atlanta Airport

     

    All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. You have enough time if the flight from Nashville is on-time.

     

  • Into ATL, out to Zurich

    We are flying into ATL from PDX on Delta and connecting to a partner flight to Zurich. We have about a 75 minute transfer time. Will we need to go through another security gate between our domestic gate and the international terminal? We are concerned about having enough time.

     

    All you have to do in Atlanta is take the Plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart, no security necessary.

     

  • Mexico to Atlanta to Boston

    I'm flying from Mexico to Atlanta and 2 hours later from Atlanta to Boston, both with Delta. Where would Terminal 2 be and is it the same as Terminal South? And do I have to claim my bags and pass through security again in Atlanta?

     

    There is no Terminal 2 in Atlanta. You will arrive in the E or F gates, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and then go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse. Perhaps the Terminal 2 denotes the terminal you are departing from in Mexico. You should have just enough time.

     

  • PUJ to ATL on SW / Change to AA from ATL to PHX
    Oct 25, 2016

    I am flying back from PUJ (Punta Cana) to ATL on SW which arrives in ATL at 5:30pm. My next flight is on AA going from ATL to PHX which departs at 7:59pm. Is this enough time for security/immigration/gate change from SW to AA, and check in?

     

    That's barely enough time if you have checked bags, as to re-check your bags you will have to take the shuttle bus from the International terminal to the domestic terminal, then re-check them with AA, then go through security. Without checked bags it will be much easier because if you check in online or on your phone you can just go through security in the International Terminal after you clear customs.

     

  • Connection time 1 hr 8 minutes okay!

    Nov. 28, the Monday after Thanksgiving weekend, I have a morning flight from Albany (ALB) to ATL arriving Terminal S (yes, I understand that is the south side of one of the terminals) with a connecting flight at Terminal I to SAN Salvador, El Salvador, both flights on Delta. Is 1 hr 8 minutes sufficient connection time? I don't see Terminal I on the map. Thanks!

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You don't actually have to change terminals. You will just take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart.

     

  • Connection time London to cancan via atlanta

    Hi, I am flying out of London to Mexico via Atlanta and have a 2hr layover. Is this enough time and do I have to collect bags and re check in. My first flight is virgin and second is delta, although booked though a package holiday. Thanks

     

    You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

    Thank you for your information. What about vice versa (CUN - ATL - LHR)?

    I will arrive in ATL from LGA on Sunday Dec. 18 at 18:45 to connect 40 minutes later to a flight to MEX. Do I have enough time? I don't have checked luggage.

     

    Yes, you have enough time, but there's no time to spare if the flight from LaGuardia is delayed. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart.

     

    Thanks. But why does the itinerary speaks of terminal I and terminal S?

     

    That's just a template that it hast to fill. You don't actually have to go to "Terminal S".

     

  • Connecting at Atlanta back to Heathrow from New Orleans

    Hi I have a flight from New Orleans (Delta) to Atlanta arriving at 5.45, and I need to get a connecting flight back to Heathrow (Virgin) at 6.45. Is an hour enough? Will I have to collect luggage and drop it off again. Getting worried as my flight times changed on the first flight resulting in only an hour. It is on the same ticket.

     

    You don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta on your way to London. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. You have enough time.
