    Flying 30th june .Is 48 minutes long enough to get through ATL for connecting flight to Manchester UK.

     

    Yes, it is enough time if your flight from Orlando is on-time. You just take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart and then board your flight.

    Hi I am leaving Punta Cana and arriving in ATL at 7:03 then departing to BOS at 9:00. Is this enough time? We are US citizens with connecting flight (one ticket)

     

    It should be enough time assuming everything goes smoothly.

     

    Any tips to make sure things go smoothly? I have to recheck the baggage correct?

     

    Yes, you will 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 to your departure concourse.

    Hi, my flight arrives from Key West at 9am, I then have 45 minutes to get a flight to New York. Is this enough time? What happens to my checked luggage? Thanks

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You don't have to do anything with your baggage. Just walk go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    Will i need to go through security again to connect to my international flight to rio? Or just go straight to the international terminals

     

    You just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. No security.

    We're flying from Myrtle Beach to ATL with a layover until international flight to Amsterdam, all via Delta. Will our bags be checked from MYR all the way thru to AMS?

     

    If all of your flights are on the same ticket you will not have to worry about your bags. If you bought them on separate tickets then yes you will have to recheck your bags.

     

    You don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta on your way to Amsterdam. You just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate using the plane train.

    Hi, my daughter who is 18 will be traveling alone tomorrow 6/3 with Delta to Atlanta and will have only 40 minutes to change planes. I am concerned that she may not make it to the next plane. I know the airport is very big and she may get confused as to where to go. Any tips to pass on to my daughter? Thanks

     

    The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security in the middle. The airport is large but the layout is very simple.

     

    That does not tell us anything. My son is 17 traveling alone and how is he to know to get on the train to go to next place. You already canceled a flight on him in Houston yesterday. I am concerned you will do it again

     

    I am a volunteer who answers questions. I did not do anything to your son. If your son is 17 and can't figure out how to follow signs or walk through an airport without getting lost then he has lived a tragically sheltered life.

    We are flying from Manchester with Virgin and will have a 2 hour lay over at Atlanta on the way out before flying on with Delta to Orlando. I am concerned about timings. Will we need to re-check the bags and go through security? Is 2 hours enough time? On the flight back from Orlando vis Atlanta to Manchester we are with Virgin on both legs, but only have an hour. Is this do able with bags, security etc. Will we need to go through Immigration on either journey? Thank you

     

    On your way to Orlando, You will 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 to your departure concourse. On the way back you just go from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse via the plane train. You do not have to go through security and there is no US Customs when exiting the US. Note that your Orlando-Atlanta flight will be operated by Delta, do not go to the Virgin counter in Orlando.

     

    Thanks for your reply, much appreciated. I still think we are going to really struggle with the connections - you live and learn and I won't do it again!

    Hi, I am flying from LAX to CLT but I have a connecting flight in Alanta. I land in Alanta at 9:03 and leave at 10:20, which is about an hour and 15 minutes for a layover. Will I have enough time to get through the airport to catch my flight?

     

    That is plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. the Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    Hello I have a connection time of just under two hours. I fly from Toronto to Atlanta (via Delta) then fly from Atlanta to Manchester, England (via Virgin Atlantic). Will I have to check in through security again, and is 2 hours enough time? The bookings are separate. Thanks

     

    (I'll only have hand luggage)

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. if you already have your Virgin boarding pass you can go directly to your departure gate.

     

  • 54 minute lay over enough

    I will be arriving from Gainsville, Fl on Delta and departing 54 minutes later on Delta for Seattle. Should that be enough time?

     

    Yes thats enough. It's a domestic flight so you won't have to clear immigration or anything and as long as you ask your desk agent to check your bags straight through to Seattle you won't have to go through re-check and will be able to make your connect much faster.

     

    Ignore Jhazzy's post. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse via the Plane Train. You have enough time.

     

    Hi... i am a canadian citizen flying with delta airlines from toronto to Cartagena, colombia with a 1 hour layover time in atlanta. Would that be enough time to make my flight? Do I have to go through customs in atlanta or since it's a connecting flight there is no custims check.

    Purchased flights through Expedia Bargain Fare. You don't know flight times, etc when you book. RIC to ATL to SNA. All good except for a 35 min time frame to connect at ATL! And our flight is the last one of the evening so if we miss it, we will be staying in the airport until we can get on a flight the next day. My question is if we show up early to the airport in Richmond any chance we could ask them if we can get on an earlier flight to ATL and they would do it without an extra fee?

     

    Possible. Depending on your airline..... Ik delta will put you on if there are seats available in your fare class.

     

  • Do bags check through?

    Leaving Nassau, connecting ATL through to Gulfport, MS, will we collect our bags in ATL to go through customs? Or do our bags check through and we just take ourselves and our carryons through customs?

     

    The latter. You go through customs/immigration with whatever carry ons you have. Once you clear immigration, you grab your checked bags and are free to go 😊

     

    Again, Jhazzy is completely wrong. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate using the Plane Train.

     

  • Seattle to ATL - 48 min layover

    I am not travelling internationally. I am flying Delta the entire trip. I leave from Anchorage to Seattle, Seattle to Atlanta, and Atlanta to Memphis. My layover in Atlanta is 48 minutes. My flight in Atlanta arrives at 7:20 am. My question is, since I am staying with the same airline the whole trip, will have to go through security once again? I don't know why I would need to and I think 48 mins is enough time to get to and from gates. But I would like some input to allay some of my travelling jitters.

     

    Hey no fear. Even if it was a different airline you wouldn't have to go through security. Security checkpoints are only used when first arriving at the airport. As long as you stay in the airport you don't have to go through security. However if you go outside, you'll have to clear security to get back in.
