  • 1hr 48min to catch international flight.
    May 27, 2014
    Hello. I am arriving Atlanta at 12:20 by delta and catching international flight to Japan at 2:08. My seat is 32A so I would assume it would take time for me to get out. I am getting nervous! Do you think 1hr 48min is enough time for transit? Please let me know! Thank youtgvg


  • Don't know which terminal?
    Jun 4, 2014
    I am flying Delta Airlines, from Orlando to Springfield through Atlanta. I have 53 min layover on my way going and 42 min on my return. Any idea about the terminal route? Departure: MCO>ATL (DL2269) ATL>SGF (DL5056) Return: ATL>SGF (DL5056) MCO>ATL (DL2269)


    Delta uses numerous concourses which are all connected by the Plane Train inside security. You can get between all gates in less than 25 minutes. You don't have much room for delays but if your first flight is on-time you should be fine.


    Should be fine


  • OMA-ATL-UVF 45 minutes
    May 26, 2014
    I have 45 minutes to connect from my delta flight from omaha, ne to my delta flight that goes to st. lucia. This is for my honeymoon and we are very nervous we wont make our flight to st. lucia! It is the only flight to st. lucia that day...the next one isnt for 24 hrs. Is 45 minutes enough time? We bought the flights on the same ticket with delta, do you think we will be at gates that are close to one another or very far? If far, what is the longest time it would take us to get from one end to another? Thanks!


    Delta uses all domestic Concourses T & A through D, with corresponding gates. All international flights are at the International 'Maynard Jackson' Terminal with Concourses/ gates E or F - reached by the underground Plane Train which stops at the center of each Concourse. Absent incoming flight delay, you should be able to make your connection and your bags will be automatically transferred. To familiarize yourself with ATL's layout, I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • Getting from international to domestic and what to do
    May 26, 2014
    Flying from England, connecting to domestic flight to Iowa. How to do that? How long will it take? Do we have to collect our luggage and take it with us through the airport? How long will it take to go through security:immigration for foreigners? We'll be laying over for 7 hours. Is there a VIP lounge near or in the domestic terminal that we can have a rest? We've never been at Atlanta airport before. Looks huge and scary.


    Nothing scary about ATL. Open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text - paying attention to "Getting Around" & its sub-headings, then moving further down to 'Terminal Details'. Thereafter click on the Terminal maps above to familiarize yourself with the terminal layouts. ATL's new International Terminal is splendid with plenty of amenities & services & lounges.


    Do I have to prebook the lounges? Thanks.

    Arriving from Costa Rica and layover in Atlanta for 1 hr and 20 min. Then catching next flight to Syracuse. Do we have enough time? And how and where do we go from there?


    You arrive at the International Terminal of ATL and depart from one of the domestic terminals - depending on which airline you take. I suggest you open then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text - paying attention to 'International Arrivals' transfer options and terminal details.


    Upon arrival in the International Terminal, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, then re-check your bags with Delta. You will then follow the sign towards connecting flights, go through security and then take the plane train to the concourse of your flight to Syracuse.


  • 38 min

    DL 1920 DL 1462 Leaving Sav Connecting in Atl to MSY Is 38 min enough time to get from one delta terminal to the next?


    Delta serves domestic Terminal's Concourses T, & A through D (with corresponding gates). Only Concouse T (T gates) are attached to the main terminal. For the other Concourses, you need to take the continuously running underground 'Plane Train' which stops at the center of each Concourse. Signs will take you to the connecting gate. Hurry!


    You have enough time if your first flight is on-time but hurry. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    I will arrive in ATL from Valpariso/Fort Walton Beach and connect with my KLM flight. Will I arrive in the domestic or international concourse?


    You will likely arrive in A, B, C, or D and then have to take the Plane Train to E or F, however, that should not take more than 15 mins.

    I have a flight arriving at Gate C41 and I have a 38 min layover. I have a connecting flight at gate A7. Will I have enough time to get to my connecting flight?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.


  • Airtran Southwest connecting flight
    Apr 21, 2014
    I will arrive on AirTran and will have 45 min to get to Southwest connection. (Domestic flight) Are the terminals close to each other? If not how do I get to Southwest. Also I booked with Southwest, do I have to pay baggage fees on AirTran?


    If you booked with Southwest you do not have to pay baggage fees on Airtran. All the AirTran and Southwest gates at ATL are on the same concourse. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Transit time
    Apr 20, 2014
    My flight DL1654 arrives at 9:01pm. I need to catch my next flight DL0105 at the international at 10:10pm. Do I have enough time? Do I need to go through security again?


    Yes you have enough time. On arrival at ATL, take the underground Plane Train to the International Terminal (check first with overhead screens for flight & gate number - (E gates or F gates - IT-E or IT-F). I suggest you open then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.

    Is a 2 hour layover enough time to connect when you are arriving ATL on an International flight


    Yes, it should be.


    ATL is huge - with 9 terminals - for international arrival procedure and domestic or international flight connections, I suggest you open then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    Actually, ATL does not have 9 terminals, it has 9 concourses.


  • time required

    Arriving 6:20PM Delta connector and departing KLM international. Time between is 83 minutes if flight on time; is that enough?:


    If you bought both flights on a single ticket, you won't need to pick up bag & re-check in with KLM. You arrive most likely on Concourse C and need to go to the center of the concourse, take the escalator down and take the underground 'Plane Train' stops at the center of each Concourse. Your KLM Concourse is F (F gates). You have enough time in both instances.


  • Any short connection line at passport control?
    Apr 7, 2014
    I will fly from MEX to ATL with DL366 arriving to ATL at 17:22, then connecting with domestic flight DL2112 at 19:34 for ORD. Shall I have enough time to check with passport control, take my luggage, re-check it and pass through security check? There exists any short-connection line at passport control, just like in JFK?


    That is not a short connection. You should have plenty of time.
