We will be arriving to Atlanta(Delta) from OKC at 1:05pm. Depart for Cancun(Delta) at 2:11pm, enough time? We will also probably have one bag checked for under the plane, do we have to go to baggage claim domestic then recheck at international? Just unsure of the proper procedures for international flights now, been awhile.
All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart and board your flight. There are no special procedures for departing the US on an international flight other than showing your passport at the gate as you board.
Flight from Myrtle Beach on delta arrives at 2:05. We will go from there to international flight on delta to amsterdam at 3:20. Enough time?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to Concourse E or F where you depart.
Thank you for your reply
My husband and I are flying internationally in the near future. We purchased tickets to Atlanta and separate tickets to Dublin. By doing this we saved $900.00. We are flying Delta so we will be picking up our bags at the South Terminal. I have walking difficulty, so since the baggage pick up is near the parking area, is there a shuttle that we can take that will take us outside to the international terminal and if so, does it pick up outside of baggage claim? I am assuming if there isn't a shuttle that will take you from the domestic terminal to international terminal we will have to use the plane train to get there. I have a injured foot that causes me to be slow and I am trying to reduce my total walking time. Thanks for your help!
Yes, there is a shuttle from the domestic terminal to the international terminal - in fact it's the only way between them outside security. It picks up near the MARTA station at the end of the terminal.
Hi,

I'm flying to ATL from CDG using AirFrance and going to LAS with Delta afterwards (single ticket). AirFrance changed my flight to LAS and now I only have 1:15h between flights. Do you think I can make it or should I ask them to change my departure to LAS to a later time? (non-US citizen).

Thanks.
That is below the minimum International to Domestic connection time in Atlanta. I recommend at least 2 hours.
Thank you! I'll try to change my flight.
My son is flying on Air France from Paris to Atlanta then to Fort Myers with a connection of only 1 hour and 45 minutes. What does he need to do and is there enough time , also his connection flight is delta so will he have to get a boarding pass there or can they give him one from the beginning of his flight ?

He will go through US Immigration, claim his bags, go through US Customs, re-check his bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to his departure concourse on the Plane Train. if both flights are on the same reservation both boarding passes should be issued in Paris. He should have just enough time.
Hi, my daughter arrives on a Virgin Atlantic flight from the Uk at 3pm then flies out to Hawaii at 10am the next day on Delta. Can she recheck her luggage after immigration in Atlanta or does she do it the next day?
She has to re-check her bags the next day.
we flying Delta to ATL then connecting to Virgin Air. how long will it take and can I walk the distance it takes.
You will take the Plane Train between your arrival concourse and your departure concourse. As long as you have more than 45 minutes it is doable if the first flight is domestic.
We are travelling from UK via Amsterdam with KLM into ATL on Aug 20 then transferring to Delta onwards to MCO. Will we have to collect luggage at ATL or will it go on through even tho this is first point of entry please?
Yes, in Atlanta you will have to claim your bags to take them through US Customs, then you can immediately re-check them before proceeding through security and to your departure gate.
Have a short layover to catch flight to amsterdam - would like to know departing gate.
Check Delta.com tomorrrow.
We will be flying into Atlanta from Austin on Frontier Airlines. We have a 2 hour layover, then will be flying from Atlanta to Providence on Delta Airlines. Will we be required to go out of the passenger area to recheck into Delta and go back through security again? Would things be any different if we only have carry-on bags rather than checking bags?
If you have checked bags you will have to claim them from Frontier in the North baggage claim, carry them to South check-in to check with Delta, and go through security and to your departure gate. With carry-ons only if you check in online for your Delta flight you just have to go to your departure gate on the Plane Train.
