Hi, I am looking at flights going from Memphis to Mexico with a layover in Atlanta. How much time should I budget for my Atlanta layover on my trip to and from Mexico city (both ways)? Many thanks.
I would want 1 hour on the way to Mexico and 2 hours on the way back.
I am traveling on southwest with carry-on bags. I have 50 minutes from landing in atlanta to take-off for dominican republis in int'l terminal. Do i need to go thru security again in atlanta? is 50 minutes enough time?
Southwest does not use the International Terminal for Departures. All you have to do on your way to Punta Cana is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Concourse C. You have enough time.
Hi, I will be coming from Belgium and will have 2 hrs to make connection in Atlanta to Philadelphia. Will that be enough time? Will be clearing customs through US citizens line, not foreigners.
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I've just had notification of a flight time change from Newark to Atlanta, flying Delta.
I need to change to a Virgin Atlantic flight to Manchester but the new layover time is only 43 minutes.
Is this realistic or should I be looking to change to a later flight to UK?
That is possible but it leaves no time to spare. There will be no later flights to Manchester so you'd have to switch to an earlier flight to Atlanta if you want to make a switch. You could also just ask for a refund due to the schedule change and just book a nonstop flight from New York to Manchester.
i have flights on virgin from Manchester with onward connection in Atlanta to FT Lauderdale - what concourse does the Manchester flight land at and which concourse is the flight to Ft L from ? 2hrs 15 mins connection enough time ?
Yes, that is enough time. You will arrive in Concourse E or F (likely F), 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 will likely depart from T, A, or B.
flying from Myrtle Beach with stopover in Atlanta for 50 min,have to change planes to go to New York? enough time. Carry on bag only
Yes, that is enough time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I land 16.30 from fort myers and my onward flight to LHR is 17.50 is this enough time... ?? All with delta
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to E or F where you depart and board your flight.
I'll be flying from San Jose, Costa Rica to Atlanta and then onto JFK (before then getting another flight onto LHR - as a British Citizen). I have booked all the flights under 1 transaction with Delta, and both the SJO to ATL and ATL to JFK legs are provided by them. There are 2 hours between arrival at ATL and departure to JFK - will this be enough time to deplane and make the next one? Thanks in advance!
Yes, that should be enough time. In Atlanta 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 and gate.
Is 50 mins enough time to get from terminal A to Terminal B for a flight change? Do I wear tennis shoes or what?
A and B are concourses not terminals. Yes, that is enough time. There is an underground train, so you probably won't have to run.
