We are arriving at Terminal 1 and our connecting flight is leaving from Terminal S is this far away or close
Atlanta does not have a Terminal 1. Where are you flying from and to and on what airlines?
I have 46 minutes to get my connecting flight to London.. already been through customs etc in fort myers is this enough time???
You will not go through Customs in Fort Myers. You will go through security there. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. In Atlanta all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Plane Train. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I am flying into Atlanta on Delta connecting to Belize - is 51 minutes enough to get my flight?

Flying back from Belize to Atlanta to Indianapolis with a 2 hour 12 minute layover. Is this enough time to make connection?
Both of those layovers should be sufficient. All you have to do in Atlanta on your way to Belize is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am traveling from ATL to Dulles and onto Johannesburg. Do I check in at the international terminal in Atlanta or domestic?
If the flight to Dulles is operated by United you check in at the Domestic terminal. United doesn't have a check in desk in the International Terminal.
Hi, I have never been on an airplane before. I already booked my ticket and now I am beginning to freak out about how short the layover is in ATL (40 minutes). The airline is KLM managed by Delta. Will I be able to make it to my international flight in time or should I cancel my ticket?
That is enough time if the flight from Fort Wayne is on-time. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. However, it doesn't leave much time to spare if the flight from Fort Wayne is delayed.
Thank you, I really appreciate your response! I am so nervous to fly for the first time and try to navigate all the different airports. I am watching videos online trying to get a feel for ATL. Thank you for your time:-]
I will be flying Delta from San Antonio to Exuma with a connecting flight in Atlanta. It is only a 50 minute layover. Will that be enough time to make it through customs and make the flight?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do on your way to Exuma is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse and board your flight. You have enough time.
CAn I access Terminal F from Terminal S without going through security? I want to go to the Priority Pass Lounge called The Club in Terminal F
F is a concourse S is a terminal. All gates areas are connected inside security by the plane train.
I'm flying into ATL Terminal S via Delta - then have to catch a flight to Daytona (also in Terminal S according to printout) I only have a 39 minute layover. Will there be enough time?
That is enough time if the first flight is on-time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate using the Plane Train.
I am flying from DFW to ATL on United, where I will have 1hr 34m layover before catching and international flight with KLM from ATL to AMS. I imagine I will go through customs in ATL, rather than DFW. Will and hour and a half be enough time to get through customs in ATL and catch flight? Also, do I need to pick up my checked bag and re-check it in ATL or should it go directly to my destination?
United doesn't fly from DFW to ATL. Are you sure you aren't on American? There is no US Customs when leaving the US. If it's two separate reservations, you will have to claim your bags with your first airline, take a shuttle to the International Terminal, re-check your bags with Delta/KLM, and go through security. 1 hr 34 minutes is not enough time for that.
Hi I'm arriving on VS109 into the international terminal at 14:55 and my connection leaves from terminal south at 16:21 VS5071 operated by Delta. I only have hand luggage. Do I have enough time?
Yes, that is just enough time. All you have to do is go through US Immigration, Customs, and security and then take the Plane Train directly to your departure concourse.
