  • Transfer time

    Hi, I am flying into Atlanta (Virgin) from UK and land at 14.05pm and then need a connecting to flight to Memphis (Delta), which is the best flight to choose to allow me enough time the 16.10pm flight or 17.30 flight? Thanks

     

    As you arrive at ATL at non-rush hour, you may opt for the 16.10pm flight. Note that Virgin & Delta do not belong to the same airline alliance: unless you purchased your flights on one ticket, you may need on arrival pick up your bags & re-check them in with Delta (find out from Virgin if they transfer). At ATL you need to go through passport check, pick up bag, go through customs clearance & re-check-in your bag where indicated (unless you need to take your bags & check-in with Delta). Virgin arrives at the new International Maynard Terminal, while Delta uses any of the Domestic concourses /gates A - D (the overhead screens on arrivals will indicate flight & gate numbers. Proceed after customs clearance & re-check-in, follow signs to the 'Plane Train' serving all concourses in the center of their gate arrangements.

    Flying in from TUS (Tuscon) to ATL on Delta...is 1 Hour 14 M enough of a layover to make it to the Int'l Terminal F to catch a flight from ATL to CDG (Paris) on either Delta or Air France? Are the Delta terminals close to or far away from Int'l Terminal F? Thanks!

     

    You don't actually have to change terminals. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse (E or F). It should take less than 20 minutes.

    will have a flight on Sat, Nov, 15th from AMS, flight DL0073, ar. ATL 02.12 p.m, departure to San Jose with DL 0525, dep. 04:55 p.m. Have to clear our baggage before we take the flight to Puerto Rico and how can we change terminals. We are from Gemany

     

    You don't have to change terminals. You will arrive in concourse E/F, go through US Immigration in the lower level of E, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and take the plane train to your departure concourse. You have plenty of time.

    Hi! I will be traveling from Dubai to Grand Cayman via delta airlines. I have a connecting flight in Atlanta. Do I still need to claim my bags at ATL and then check-in again after US customs? And will it be on the same concourse? Thank you.

     

    Yes, you will still need to claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check them. Atlanta does not have facilities for International to International connections without claiming bags.

    Hello. I fly from Portland to Atlanta by Delta. I fly from Atlanta to Amsterdam by KLM. The layover is 1 hour 17 minutes. Is there enough time for everything? Thank you!

     

    Your transfer time is sufficient. The underground 'Plane Train' stops at the center of each Concourse. Your Delta arrival can be at either Concourse T, A, B, C or D; your KLM flight is out of the 'Maynard Jackson Terminal' or IT / TI) with Concourses E & F - your ticket may quote IT-E, TI-E, or IT-F, TI-F. On arrival, just follow signs to the Plain Train.

     

  • Do ATL intl-to-intl connections have to clear customs?

    Hello, my wife and depart Paris, and arrive ATL at 14:55, and then connect to Quito, Ecuador at 17:30. I've heard that customs and security lines can be very long in ATL. However, Delta has told me that international-to-international connections do not have to clear US customs and security, but can move directly to their connecting US-outgoing flight in terminal E or F? Is this infor correct?

     

    Whoever at Delta who told you that is wrong. You have to go through US Immigration and Customs upon arrival at ATL.

    I will be arriving from Tampa Fl at 8:22 pm to connect to Dubai flight departing 9:47 pm. Where do I go to make the conection?

     

    You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All concourses are connected inside security by security.

     

  • Enough time to connect?

    We arrive in ATL from GSO at 6:13 pm on Delta 1466 (Concourse A). Our connecting flight to MEX (also with Delta) departs at 7:01 om from Concourse E. Will we make it? I called Delta and thay said it is a "legal connection".

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to Concourse E.

     

    Unless your incoming flight is late. Delta likes to decrease travel times by allowing short layovers, but a lot of their flights are late. I was once in a plane waiting on the tarmac for a gate in Atlanta when my connecting flight left, so I don't trust layovers of less than an hour in ATL anymore.

    Hi, I'm flying to Dubai via ATL on 10/31. I'm scheduled to arrive in ATL at 8:58 pm. My flight to Dubai departs at 9:47. Is there enough time to make this connection?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is domestic. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E/F where your Dubai flight will depart.

     

  • British Air to Delta

    I will be arriving on a Sat. night at 7:30 PM from London on British Air in business class. I have global entry. I want to catch a Delta flight at 9:45 pm to Minneapolis. It would be on a separate ticket and I understand that British Air will not check baggage all the way to Mpls because Delta is not a partner. I can check in for Delta flight with my phone so I would have boarding pass. Do I have time for this connection? Do I have to take my bags on the shuttle to main terminal? Is there a way to drop bags at Delta recheck counter and take the plane train?

     

    I believe you will have to take the shuttle to the Domestic terminal to re-check your bags. However, one thing worth investigating is getting your bags checked through to MSP by British Airways. BA and Delta DO have an interline baggage agreement, so the agent in London should be able to check your bags through if you show your Delta confirmation. However, he or she is not obligated to do so if you purchased separate itineraries. If your bags are tagged to MSP then you can use the re-check counter and proceed directly to security and the plane train.

    My wife and I will land on 11/5 at 5:13pm from Cancun with a 1hr 45min layover before departing for SFO. Both flights are on Delta. Will we have enough time and do we have to travel between concourses? Thanks!

     

    Yes, you should have enough time. You will arrive in concourse E or F where you will go to the lower level, clear US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags with Delta, then you will go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse.

    We will be arriving in ATL at 5:55pm on a tuesday (southwest flight) and connecting to an AirTran flight that leaves at 6:30pm. Will that be enough time to make the connecting flight?

     

    Yes, all Southwest and AirTran flights are on the same concourse.

     

    Again, this depends on whether your incoming flight is on time.....

    Hi, we will be arriving at ATL from MAN on a Virgin flight, with a 1 hour 30 minute stop before our next flight to TPA with Delta. Will this be enough time? Will we have to collect and re-check luggage at ATL? The flights were booked as a package with Virgin. Thanks!

     

    Yes, you will arrive in Concourse E or F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then you will go through security and take the plane train to your departure concourse. You should have enough time.

     

  • 45 minute layover.

    Hi, i am looking to book a flight and my return journey gives me a 45 minute layover in ATL. It's a Delta flight coming in from SAN with a 45 minute layover in ATL then back to London. Will the 45 minutes be enough and also I will have checked in luggage at SAN. Any help much appreciated. Thanks!

     

    You will check your baggage in SAN and won't see it again until you get to London. Yes, 45 minutes should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. the Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
