  • VCE to ATL to MLB
    Jul 14, 2016
    I am looking at a Delta flight into ATL from Venice and that will have 1hr. 51 min. to make the connecting flight to MLB. I will be flying on a single Delta ticket and carrying on my bag. If I book this flight will I have enough time to get through customs & security to make the 5:35 PM connecting flight?


    That should be just enough time if the flight from Venice is on-time.


  • layover 44 min enough time to catch connect flight in same term S

    Arrive from Knox TYS Delta 3935 at ATL Terminal S with connect flight to Ft Walton (VPS) Delta 5281 Terminal S with 44 min layover. Is this enough time to catch connecting flight in same Terminal S or how will I know if I actually need to get off first plane


    Almost assuredly you will have to change planes. All gates at ATL are connected inside security but Delta uses five different concourses for domestic flights. If you need to change concourses the Plane Train runs underground inside security between all of them. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    Hello. I have a flight PTY - ATL - MCO with connecting time in ATL of 2 hrs. Is this enough to do migration, etc (from international to national flight) thanks!


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    landing KLM from MCO 21.29 at south and changing to International for a flight 22.30 to Amsterdam? Will this be enough and do we need to recheck the luggage and do the security check again ? Whole travel is bought with KLM but operates by Delta in some lines. N


    All you have to do in Atlanta is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart. Your flight from Orlando will be operated by Delta. You don't have to do anything with your bags or go through security in Atlanta. You have enough time.


  • 59 min connect time

    our flight lands in ATL from St. Louis at 9:46am and departs for Jamaica at 10:45am. That gives us 59 minutes to get to the International terminal . Will that be enough time?


    Yes that is 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 will depart.


  • delta to american/south to north tgerminal
    Jul 11, 2016
    I have 45 minutes to land on Delta and catch a flight on American, is this enough time from the south terminal to the north terminal- no luggage will be checked.


    With no checked bags it's possible if you are already checked in online for your AA flight. You don't actually have to change terminals. You just take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse T or D where your AA flight will depart.

    We are flying into Atlanta from Italy. Will an hour and a half layover time be enough to get to our connecting domestic flight to Greenville?


    International flight is delta and domestic flight is through southwest.


    No, that is not realistically enough time, especially with checked bags it would be completely impossible.


    Thanks! That's what we figured but wanted a second opinion.


  • 2h5min connection time enough to go from Costa Rica to Canada?
    Jul 10, 2016
    Is 2 hours enough to clear customs and re-check luggage in Atlanta? Should I not risk it at all or avoid checked luggage? Thank you in advance


    2 hours is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    My flight was just change. My layover is only 55 minutes in ATL does this give me enough time to check a bag or should I do carry on only


    All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse on the plane train. You don't have to do anything with your bags. You have enough time.


  • Approx 50 minutes transfer time

    Hi, have an internal Delta flight arriving into Atlanta terminal S, at 16:56, then an international Virgin flight leaving for London from Row 3 in the International terminal at 17:45, e.g. about 49 minutes for connection. I don't need to collect luggage (since this should og straight through) but since I will be leaving the US I will need to pass through some sort of immigration control. Is this cutting it a bit fine? Cheers.


    You don't actually have to change terminals. There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is take the plane train to your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart and board your flight. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.


    Much obliged, Sir / Madam


  • Tight connection time

    8:29 arrival in ATL 9:44 departure to London A5 to F10 Are we going to make this connection?


    Yes, you just have to take the Plane Train from A to F, which shouldn't take more than 10 minutes.

  • 1 hr and 30 min tranzit to Cancun
    Jun 30, 2016
    I will travel begining of August to Cancun coming from Amsterdam (KL 6013-DL 75) and I would like to know if 1hr 30 min will be enough to tranzit ATL. I just read that this flight has bad reviews in regrads of arriving on time. Also I am quite concerned that I have to receck the luggage. Any advice/opinion? Thank you!


    Yes, 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 barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • 53 minute connection
    Jun 28, 2016
    I'm traveling with Delta from HOU to ATL arriving 1pm and have 53 minutes to make a connection to SFO. Is that enough time? Thanks!


    Yes, that should be enough time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The plane train connects all concourses inside security.


  • Internationational Transit on Separate Tickets
    Jun 29, 2016
    We are arriving from Doha on Qatar Airways into ATL. Then, on a seperate ticket, we are catching a domestic Delta flight 3 hours later to DC. Since it is a separate ticket, do we have to collect the bags and go to Delta ticketing to get the Boarding passes? We are returning the same way. I assume we have to check in again at the international Terminal in ATL. Is that correct?


    Yes, you will arrive in the International Terminal, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then take the shuttle bus to the Domestic S terminal, and re-check your bags and go through security. On the return you will have to claim your bags in the Domestic S terminal, then take the shuttle to the International Terminal, re-check your bags with Qatar Airways, and go through security. 3 hours is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    There is no way to do this other than arriving as an Atlanta- bound passenger?So you would recommend 4 or 5 hours?
