I'm a British citizen flying from Manchester Airport to Atlanta. I then have 1h35m to make my connecting flight from Atlanta to Tucson. Will I have enough time to do this? I booked through Expedia and assumed their systems would leave me enough time to make the connection but now I'm not so sure, especially if I have to pass through security and check in my luggage all over again.
It's just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse.
Must be joking it took us 3 hrs from Delta international flight disembarkation to gate for Southwest.
Hi,

I have 40 min layover in Atlanta, which I know is tight. However, for this reason I'm only flying hand luggage.

I was wondering if anyone knew which terminal flights in from Fort Walton (VPS) in FL usually come in at, and where flights to Detroit leave from? Both with Delta. Thanks!

Delta domestic flights can use Concourses T, A, B, C, or D (and occasionally E). They are all connected inside security by the Plane Train. You have enough time if the flight from Ft. Walton Beach is on-time.
I'm taking a flight with delta (expressjet delta connection) to Atlanta and then a flight to Tokyo (narita airport). Do I have to get my luggage back in atlanta and register them again? Will I have to go through the custom posts again?
Thank you
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Atlanta on your way to Tokyo is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You don't have to do anything with your bags.
How much time it takes to walk between Gate D9 and A12? Will it be faster if I take train given that I have very close connecting flight to catch?
Yes, it would be MUCH faster to take the train. With the train it will take 10-15 minutes.
Hi, I'm flying from London to Kingtson, Jamaica on 9th January.My flight arrives at ATL T I at 14.30 and my Delta flight to Jamaica departs at 16.25. Do I have to go through US immigration and then collect my hold luggage before heading to the Kingston flight departure gate as I am only transiting? If I do, have I got enough time to transfer?
Many thanks.
Is your first flight on Virgin or Delta? Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go to your departure gate. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I will arrive from Frankfurt by Lufthansa at 15:00 and take a flight with Delta to Cancun at 18:10. Is this time interval sufficient for transfer?
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through Customs, exit into the International Terminal, re-check your bags with Delta, and go through security and to your departure gate.
Do I have enough of a layover(1hr) to catch my international connection?
Where are you flying from and to? What airline or airlines are you on?
Hi there

I'm a Canadian citizen flying from Toronto to Belize via Atlanta. I have a 57 minute layover and need to get from either Gate C or D to E. Will that be enough time? I don't plan to do check luggage and should have my nexus pass by then.
There is a tram that will get you there in minutes. Just look for signs or ask and make your way down the escalator to the tram. The signage is good. You'll need to move with purpose!
Also, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto, so all you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Amazing. Thanks everyone!
I will be landing in Altanta and going to cancun. I will not be checking luggage. I only have a 50 minute layover… Am I going to make my connection if I have to go to the international terminal? Do I need to have luggage searched again?
If both flights are on the same reservation then all you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. You do not have to go through security again. You have enough time.
Arriving at Atlanta by Korean Air at 9:10 am and have to transfer to Alabama by Delta at 11:10 am. Not an US citizen. Will I have enough time to catch Delta to go to Alabama?
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying from Guatemala City to Atlanta the 13th of January arriving at 13.29 on flight nr DL910, then I have a flight to JFK at 15.35 flight nr. DL42 from terminal S. Do I have enough time and how to I go from the international airport to the domestic?
You will arrive in Concourse E or F, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and take the plane train directly to your departure concourse. You don't actually have to go the the "S Terminal". You have enough time.
