I'm travelling from Cancun to Amsterdam and layover time in Atlanta is 1:45h. Is this enough? All flights are operated by Delta. Thanks!
That is barely enough time. You will have to 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 to your departure gate.
Thank you! What if I miss my connection flight? Will they re-route me to the destination?
Yes, they will book you on the next available flight to Amsterdam.
I'm flying in from Rome on Jan. 5th and wonder if the 2 hour connection time will be sufficient to go through customs and make my connecting flight to Columbus. I'd rather change flight now than be stuck in airport. Thank you.
Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Rome is on-time.
Hi I'm travelling from Pittsburgh to France and my layover in Atlanta is 48 minutes only, is this enough time to switch from terminal S to I? First flight with Air France operated by Delta and second flight is Air France. Thank you
You don't actually have to change terminals - you just take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I will arrive in ATL at 21:20 with turkish airlines (terminal N) and will depart at 22:25 with delta (terminal S). Is 1h 5 minutes enough? What if I decide to only have carry on luggage? Thanks!
You do not arrive in Terminal N. you will arrive in the International Terminal. You do not have enough time for that connection. If you have already purchased your flight from Turkey, plan on spending the night in Atlanta.
Wanting to book a flight to PHX from Pittsburgh on Southwest. The flight stops in Atlanta; there is only 35 minutes b4 the connecting flight leaves. Will I have enough time between gates. Thanks
Good luck. Atlanta is a very large airport. I'm surprised Southwest booked you with so little layover. Your lifesaver will be if your connecting flight's gate is nearby your arrival gate from PIT. And you'll be out of luck if your taxiing time is lengthy getting to the gate. Try to get info ahead of time the gate you're arriving at and your departure gate; this way you'll be prepared to run if you have to get to another concourse.
All Southwest gates in ATL are close together.
Thx. It scares me,since I don't like to fly anyway. I hesitated booking for that reason & am hoping the gates are like 'next to each other' as in Pittsburgh
Thank you. That's is what I am hoping.
The Southwest website says they occupy Concourse "C" gates 1-7, 9, 10, 12-17 and 20-22. All of these are relatively "close" together.
Is 1 hour and 45 minutes enough layover time before a flight to Narita, Japan. Coming from RSW to Atlanta.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Plane Train.
Yes. As long as you have checked your luggage thru to your international destination, you do not have to leave the secured area to get from domestic to international flights. Depending on where your arrival and departure gates are you may not have time to shop or eat, but you should have plenty of time to get to your next flight.
Flying Delta from FLL-ATL and Virgin Atlantic from ATL-LHR. Layover in ATL is 46 minutes. Will this be enough time to make the LHR flight, with or without checked baggage on the same reservation
Yes, all you have to do in Atlanta is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. You have just enough time.
As long as you have checked bags through to your international destination. Carry-on bags not an issue, since you will not leave the secured area when moving between domestic and international flights. Travel between concourses depends on your arrival and departure gate locations. In order, Concourses are T, A, B, C, D, E, and F. Most, but not all, international flights depart from F. If you arrive at T and depart from F, they are the furthest apart, so don't dawdle ... go straight for your departure gate.
