We are flying Delta from Toronto Ontaio to Mexico City with a connection in Atlanta. Do we change terminals? We have 90 minutes!
Both flights will be on Concourse E or F (likely E). You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto so all you have to do in Atlanta on the way to Mexico City is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you!
Hi, my relatives are traveling from Mumbai to Paris to Atlanta (both Air France). Eticket shows they will arrive at Terminal I. Connecting flight to Kansas City is from Terminal S. Can you please tell me how to go from Terminal I to S. Also, as port of entry is Atlanta, do they have to collect their baggage and do check in again for domestic flight (Delta airlines)? Layover at Atlanta is 2 and half hours. Will that be enough?
They will go through US Immigration, claim their bags, go through US Customs, re-check their bags at the re-check desk immediately after, go through security and then take the Plane Train directly to their departure concourse. They don't actually have to go to the S Terminal. They should have enough time.
I haven't flown International out of Atlanta in awhile. Im going Air Canada from ATL to Toronto and then onto Tel Aviv. Do we start out at the Atlanta International terminal?
Yes, the Air Canada check in desk is in the International Terminal in Atlanta.
Hi! I am flying into JFK from LHR and will obviously do customs and border control there. I am then getting a totally new flight on a seperate ticket from JFK to Atlanta, where I am then getting a connecting flight from Atlanta to Lexington bluegrass. I only have 30mins from when I land in Atlanta to get on my connecting flight. Is this achieveable? What security will I then have to go through when I arrive? (As I will have already done customs etc at JFK). All my flights are operated by Delta. Any info about what terminals I need to get to and from and security information would be much appreciated.
All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All concourses are connected inside security by the Plane Train. It is possible, but risky.
I've booked a flight via Virgin Atlantic starting with an internal domestic flight with Delta which is scheduled to land at 6.33 pm. I then have to get across the airport to pick up a Virgin flight to the UK that departs at 7.25pm. My thoughts are that this doesn't give enough time to get across a busy airport given delays getting off the plane and to the international gate. Virgin won't put me on an earlier internal flight unless I pay£150! Not happy. Am I going to have enough time to make the connection?
That is enough time if the first flight is on-time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to Concourse F.
Need direction as to drive to international terminal for Lufthansa
It is thoroughly signed. You get to it off I-75
I'm arriving in ATL at 6:07 (terminal s) and I need to get to Virgin Atlantic connection by 7:15 (Terminal I) 1. is Term. S the domestic terminal? 2. I am assuming Term I is Concourse F? 3. how close will I be cutting it? Leave it to Delta to label the terminals different from the airport.....
You don't actually have to change terminals. You just take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to Concourse F. You have enough time.
Arriving in Atlanta on a domestic Delta flight, how do I get to concourse for a Delta (Air France) flight to Paris?
The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse.
We are a Uk family of 5 travelling from Orlando to Atlanta for a connecting flight to Cancun in August.
Flight arrival 1150
Cancun flight leaves 1355

Any directions or tips would be great...thanks.
That is plenty of time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart.
We are arriving into Terminal I from YYZ (We will be clearing US customs there) and leaving from Terminal I to MSY. We have a 1 hour connection time. Is this doable?
On the way back we have 2.5 hours so I do not have a concern there.
All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you have to change concourses (you probably will), they are all connected inside security by the Plane Train. You have enough time.
