We have flights already booked out of Atlanta to London Heathrow at 7.30pm. We're intending to get a separate internal flight to either New Orleans or Miami/Key West for a few days (still deciding... any tips on that also gratefully received!) - what time should we aim to get back into Atlanta airport in order to recheck our baggage and make it to our flight on time? The flights I'm currently looking at would allow around 2 hours 40 minutes, assuming the flight is on time. Is that too tight?
Thanks in advance!
2 Hrs 40 mins is cutting it pretty close. I would want over 3 hours, considering you'll have to claim your bags in the Domestic Terminal, then take the shuttle to the International Terminal and re-check your bags and go through security.
Ok thanks! Will look into an earlier flight.Have only really ever done this on one ticket before where the bags are checked all the way through, so wasn't sure.
Traveling from ATL to Punta Cana, how do I find out where my terminals are? I only have 1 hour to get to the connecting flight
Where are you flying into Atlanta from? what airlines are you flying?
Richmond and delta! Im having trouble figuring it out on the map!
All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse (likely A, B, or C) to your departure concourse (E or F) and board your flight. You have enough time if the flight from Richmond is on-time.
We are due to land at 15:30 with Virgin from London to ATL. We then need to connect with Delta to fly to Nassau. Their latest flight leaves at 17:30. Will there be enough time to make this flight in 2hrs? Will we need to re-check in at departures for the Delta flight?
If both flights are on the same reservation you don't have to check in again. You just 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.
They will be 2 separate reservations, so presume will need to check-in again? Therefore how much time should we allow from landing to next flight taking off?
