  • SWA CUN to MCI Connection

    Flying from CUN to ATL via SWA, then SWA to MCI. Is 1 hour/30 minutes enough time to get through immigration/customs and make the connection? Carry on bags only. Thanks.

     

    Yes, with carry-on only that should be enough time.

    I am re--entering the country in Atlanta with a friend. The friend's last stop is Atlanta but I have a connecting flight back to my home airport. Is there a separate immigration section for people staying in Atlanta and people continuing on? If I wanted to stay in Atlanta with my friend until my connection could I leave the airport after I get my bags? Thanks!

     

    If you arrive in Terminal E you are often directed towards different lines.

    Arriving delta from japan. Departing 3 1/2 hours later enroute to burlington vt. on delta also. Must i go from international concourse to domestic and will i have to collect my luggage and carry?

     

    You will arrive in Concourse E, 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.

    April 5 I am flying into ATL from VLD. Looks like I will be flying into D and out of A with a 41 min connection time. It is a small plane, is this enough time? Flying back I will be coming into A on a 737 and out of D. I have a choice of 41 min conn time or 1hr 38min. Should I take the longer time?

     

    I would choose the longer time. Since you will have to gate check your bags on the flight to/from Valdosta and it takes a bit of time to get from D to A, I would be more comfortable with the longer connection.

    I'm flying into Atl on 2/17 Flight #DELTA 1574 arriving 7:33 a.m.. My connection is DELTA 2212 departing 8:16 a.m. How do I figure out what terminals each are at and will I have enough time to reach my DELTA 2212 flight?

     

    Terminal is irrelevant as you won't be going to any terminals. You will likely arrive in concourse B and depart from concourse B or D. You have enough time as long as the first flight is on-time. If you have to change concourses the Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    I see a ia not the only one with this question. I will arrive from Brussels at Atlanta 14.43 in I terminal, our connecting flight from ATL to MIA leaves at 16.10 from S terminal. I am really worried about the short connecting time. Do we need to pick up our bags and check in again ? or do we only have to pass customs/ immigration ourselves.And what if we do mis our flight, do we have to pay change fee etc.

     

    You do not have to actually change terminals. Assuming your inbound flight is not coming from somewhere with preclearance, you will arrive in the E or F gates, 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 gate. You have barely enough time. If you miss your connection you will be rebooked on the next flight to Miami, no change fee.

    in August we will fly from Duesseldorf to Atlanta on Delta 25. An hour and 39 minutes later we fly on to Chicago on Delta 1977. I have asked for wheelchair assistance (not bringing my own). Should I worry we won't make the connection or will we be fine?

     

    That should be just enough time. If you do miss your connection Delta has frequent flights from Atlanta to Chicago.

     

  • Phx to ATL then Istanbul on Turkish Airlines

    In June I have a Delta flight from Phx to ATL. Then on a separate ticket I fly on Turkish airlines to Istanbul. Since they are separate tickets I believe I will have to pick up my luggage in ATL then go to the International Terminal . What is the easiest way to get to there?

     

    After you claim your bags in the domestic terminal, the only way to get to the International Terminal to re-check your bags with Turkish is a shuttle bus. I would plan at least 3 hours for your connection.

     

  • "Connecting" flights on different airlines

    We are traveling to ATL via Southwest (lands 10:10 am). Originally, we planned to drive to Savannah but have decided to fly now. We will fly to SAV via Delta (12:30 pm). We will not be checking bags. Do we need to exit, get tickets & go back through security? How does did work when you have "connecting" flights on different airlines?

     

    You will need to check in for your Delta flight online and print off your boarding passes or get them on your phone before leaving on your Southwest flight. Then when you arrive in Atlanta you can just go directly to the departure gate for your Savannah flight. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

     

    Thank you! About how long will it take us to get from Southwest to the Delta terminal?

     

    Southwest uses concourse C. Your Delta flight will probably leave from A, B, or C. It shouldn't take more than 20 minutes.

     

  • Terminal I to Terminal S

    I am arriving from London into ATL at 17.24 on Delta flight on 4 April into Terminal I and then leave at 19.25 from Terminal S on Delta flight to Orlando. When I asked the airline they were not sure if I had to collect luggage and re check in for the second flight. I have done this routine some years ago but my luggage was transferred to the second flight. Can anyone advise me and do I have time to change Terminal?

     

    You do not have to actually change terminals. Assuming your inbound flight is not coming from somewhere with preclearance, you will arrive in the E or F gates, 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 gate. You have enough time. Where are you flying into Atlanta from?

     

    Thanks for the advice. So I have to clear customs at Atlanta. I thought maybe as I was not leaving the airport and taking a second flight I would do that at Orlando. I am flying from Heathrow.

     

    You always clear US Immigration and Customs at your first port of entry.

     

  • Tampa to Bermuda Via Atlanta

    I have 50 mins to connect from Tampa>Atlanta to Atlanta>Bermuda. Is this an easy connection with that much time? Is that the last Atlanta?Bermuda flight of the day?

     

    That is enough time if your first flight is on-time. All you have to do in ATL is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The plane train connects all concourses inside security. You don't say when you're traveling and on what flight so I don't know if you're on the last flight of the day, however, few days have more than one flight from Atlanta to Bermuda.

    Do I need to get my checked bags before checking-in for the flight to Aruba?

     

    No, there is no US Customs when leaving the US. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    Hi, I have a connecting flight on 13th April from TPA til LHR via ATL with Delta and I only have 1 hr and 4 minutes to transfer to my flight til LHR. it's the last flight out from ATL to LHR on this day and I'm slightly concerned that I won't make my flight to LHR. Is 1 hr and 4 minutes enough time and do I have to pick up my luggage and recheck it for my flight to LHR?

     

    You don't have to do anything with your baggage. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. the Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You have enough time as long as your plane from Tampa is on-time.

    You don't have to go through security, customs, or passport control. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I will be arriving in Atlanta at 8:30 a.m. and have 1 hour and 15 minutes to get to my connecting flight to PV. Is this enough time to navigate the airport and get to my gate? Do I have to pick up my luggage and re-check it?

     

    All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, nothing with your luggage. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You have enough time.
