Do we go to domestic or international terminal in Atl for the first leg of our trip? Atl to Lax then to Sidney
You go to Domestic.
I have a flight landing in Atlanta from Orlando at 21:20 pm, then my connecting flight is an international to Buenos Aires leaving at 22:10. Will this be enough time to make it to my flight?
Yes, that is enough time. You just have to take the Plane Train to your departure concourse and board your flight.
I have a flight landing in Atlanta from Chicago O'Hare at 7:00 pm, then my connecting flight is an international to Dublin leaving at 7:50. Will this be enough time to make it to my flight?
Yes, that is enough time. You just have to take the Plane Train to your departure concourse and board your flight.
I am flying to Atlanta on Delta terminal S and going to terminal I to fly out to Tokyo. I did not see any of these terminals on the map of the airport. How do I know what the real terminals are and how do I get from one to another?
Thank You
You will arrive in Concourse T, A, B, C, or D and depart from concourse E or F. You just have to take the Plane Train (which runs underground) from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse.
I am flying into ATL on a flight that normally comes in in Terminal B. I have a connection that normally leaves from Terminal C. I have about an hour and a half and I do have TSA precheck. Easy enough except one thing. I have to escort a child from Terminal B to relatives who will be picking him up. Is there a specific door I should head for to make this as quick as possible?
B and C are concourses, not Terminals. You will have to take him on the Plane Train to the domestic terminal, and up the escalator to meet the relatives. However, if you go up the escalator you will have to go back through security as you can't go down the escalator. How old is the child? Can he or she manage going up an escalator themselves if you can confirm using your phone that the relatives are waiting for him at the top? If so that would save you a lot of time.
Do you mean that if I stay at the bottom of the escalator I won't have to go through security? If the top of the escalator is visible to me and I can see him meet up with the family, I could stay at the bottom. Is there no curbside pickup at the concourses?
The concourses are just gate areas located in the middle of aircraft apron. They don't have curbs, let alone curbfront pickup. They are connected to the terminals by the Plane Train which runs underground. Yes, I'm pretty sure you can see the top of the escalator from the bottom.
Thanks very much.
I have a connecting flight Amsterdam-Atlanta-Cancun (AMS-ATL-CUN) and the connection gap at ATL is 1 hour 40 minutes. I do not need to recheck my baggage, but i am wondering if it is enough time to change flights? and also is it enough time for airlines to pass my baggage so it doesn't got lost?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security.
Arriving in ATL on Sat, 4/22 on Delta Flt 2801 at 8:19a and the connecting flight to MCO is Delta Flt 1883 at 8:55. Will I have enough time to make it to the gate with only 36 minutes between flights? I'm traveling with an older person who can't walk very fast. Are the gates close to each other?
You won't know your gates until the day of your flight. It's possible but doesn't leave much time to spare. if you miss your connection, Delta has hourly flights from Atlanta to Orlando that you can be rebooked on.
I am an EU national; will be flying in to Atlanta from Rome to connect to Jacksonville; I only have 1.30mins between flights - will I make it? I assume I have to collect luggage and go through security - please advise!!
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. You have barely enough time.
Hey, so here's the thing. I am arriving from Jamaica around 1 pm and I have my next flight to India at 7 25 pm. this is not a connecting flight. I booked these separately. so following are the questions : 1) Will I have enough time to go through immigration and, baggage claim and recheck those bags? 2) THE MAIN: How will the process be? to come out and go inside the international terminal again? thank you
There are no nonstop flights from Atlanta to India. Where are you stopping first? What airline are you flying?
I am looking at a flight this summer from Toronto (YYZ) to Fort Walton Beach, FL (VPS) connecting in Atlanta, with a 60 minute layover. Do I have to clear customs in ATL or does this happen in Toronto beforehand? If not, I imagine 60 minutes would not be an adequate time frame.
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
