I am flying from Guatemala City to Atlanta the 13th of January arriving at 13.29 on flight nr DL910, then I have a flight to JFK at 15.35 flight nr. DL42 from terminal S. Do I have enough time and how to I go from the international airport to the domestic?
You will arrive in Concourse E or F, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and take the plane train directly to your departure concourse. You don't actually have to go the the "S Terminal". You have enough time.
My student is studying abroad. They will be flying IN from DFW airport to ATL...then connecting from ATL to Paris. Suggestions...can you hire someone to accompany a traveler. I have heard the ATL airport can be tricky.
It's not tricky at all - all they have to do is take the Plane Train from their arrival concourse to concourse E or F where they depart and then board their flight to Paris. No, there is no assistance they can hire.
i will fly into ATL from Paris with Air France and leaving with Delta AL to Guatemala. stop over in ATL is 1h 40 min. is it enough time to pass through immigration, customs, security? or as both flights are on the same reservation can i just skip all of these and just go from arrival gate to departure gate in ATL ?
You have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security. You have just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
I'm flying from LAX to ATL, from ATL to Nassau Bahamas and I Have layover in ATL for 3 hours, do I need to claim my bag and then recheck it??
If both flights are on the same reservation all you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, nothing with your bags.
Hi, my flight arrives from saint marteen (Caribbean island) to ATL at the Maynard Jackson International terminal then i have exactly 1 hour and 56 minutes before my connecting flight departs from the south terminal to Louisiana. How do I get from the international terminal to the south terminal? (Both my arrival and connecting flights are with delta)
Also, do i have to recheck my checked luggage for my connecting flight? If yes, then where do i get it checked in?
You don't actually have to change terminals. You just 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, go through security and take the plane train directly to your departure concourse. You should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thanks!
We have a 2h50m layover we land at domestic terminal south and depart from international terminal, how do we go about the connection?
If both flights are on the same reservation you just have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse to Concourse E or F where you depart. You have plenty of time. You don't actually have to change terminals.
Thank you, yes we are on the same reservation and same airline (delta) so that sounds doable.
Just looked at the airport maps the domestic terminal south is a separate building to international so would we still use the plane train?
You don't ACTUALLY have to go to the South Terminal. You will arrive in one of the domestic concourses (T, A, B, C, or D) - you can then take the Plane Train DIRECTLY to your departure concourse (E or F). You don't have to go to any terminals at all actually!
I am flying from NY to ATL on a one-way stand alone AA ticket tomorrow. I will have checked bags that i will need to pick up at AA domestic baggage claim in ATL. I then have a flight to Paris on a separate ticket/itinerary How do I get from domestic baggage claim to international departure terminal? I can't take the plane train since I will have oversized luggage that I cannot take thru security. Thanks!
You have to take a shuttle bus. It takes awhile. I hope you have close to 3 hours between flights.
thanks. that helps. I figured that was the case.. but wanted to be sure. I guess the international shuttle is at the normal ground transportation area?
Yes, it is, down at the end by the MARTA station I believe.
We're Canadian citizens flying from San Pedro Sula, Honduras to Orlando via Atlanta on February 25th. Both flights are with Delta and there's 1 hour & 40 minutes between flights. Will we have enough time to make our connecting flight?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying in from CLT to ATL and I have a connection flight to BOG, Colombia. Is 40 min enough time to get from gate B10 to concourse E or F?
It's possible but it leaves no time to spare. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
Hi traveling through to Atlanta from the uk on the 25th of December I have a connection to Detroit metro with an hour 40 minutes in between .does this leave me enough time ? .to go through security and back again? Anyone know where to go once in Atlanta harstsfield Jackson or any pointers to get me through fast?
You will arrive in the E or F concourse, 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 should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
