  • Security Check/Customs
    Oct 29, 2015
    I am flying to JFK via Atl from Johannesburg. Would i need to pick up my baggage and go through customs? Will a 2 hour layover be enough time to catch my connecting flight? I land at Terminal I and need to get to Terminal S.


    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. You don't actually have to go to Terminal S.


  • Connection from Toronto through ATL to Bonaire
    Oct 28, 2015
    I will be flying from Toronto (YYZ) to ATL connecting to Bonaire (BON). The connection time 1 hr and 10 min. Is this enough time? We will be going through US border preclearance in Toronto.


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Double security?
    Oct 27, 2015
    First time flying solo and in ATL. Flying from AVL to ATL then connecting on international flight to YYZ will I have to go through security again once I land in ATL? Or will I just ride plane train to my terminal? Starting to panic that 1 hour layover isn't enough time if I have to go thru security a second time


    All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse.


  • Transferring through ATL
    Oct 27, 2015
    Hello I fly Air France from CDG to ATL then though to SJO with a long lay-over and I can use the lounge. On the return SJO to ATL it is Delta then I connect to AF. It seems the flights from SJO leave and depart from E and the CDG ones F. 1. Will I be able to check luggage through from CDG to SJO and SJO to CDG? 2. My flight from SJO arrives 18:56 and flight to CDG departs 20:40, thus about 1h40 min. 3. If I can not check luggage through will I make the CDG flight? I am a Sky Priority passenger. 4. Is there a fast-lane like at CDG or AMS?


    Both ways in ATL you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk and go through security. I believe there is a lane for Sky Priority passengers at ATL. You should have enough time.


    Thank you for the response / information

  • first time flying through Atlanta
    Oct 25, 2015
    connecting flight through Atlanta to Tampa 2 hrs layover. Would this be enough time to get to the gate??? I'm just concerned and little bit scared since I'm traveling with my daughter...Never been to this airport before and dont want to miss my flight..thank you


    That is a ton of time if the first flight is domestic and still enough time if the first flight is international.


  • 1 hr 40 min connection
    Oct 22, 2015
    Hello; Can you please give me an opinion if NRT - ATL - YYZ with a 1 hr 40 min connection in ATL will be sufficient time? I have global entry and only hand luggage. Thank you!


    With Global Entry and no checked bags that should be easy.


    Awesome -- Thanks so much for your help! (I would never attempt such a short connection at JFK but am happy to hear it would be considered easy at ATL)


  • Traveling with kids - 39 min connection
    Oct 19, 2015
    Looks like I'll be flying into terminal C or D (from AGS) and going to San Diego (which I think leaves out of A) . I've got a connection time of 39 min. I'm flying with my partner, a lap baby and a toddler - we will have a double stroller and the toddler will be in a car seat during the flights. Will we make it? Should I have my spouse run ahead with the car seat and/or one of the kids? Any suggestions?


    Yes, if one of you can run ahead that would be a good idea.


  • Atlanta-Frankfurt
    Jan 11, 2015
    Arriving from STL into ATL,have a connecting flight to Frankfurt/Germany,all run by Delta.....What concourse will my flight be?


    You will likely arrive in A, B, or C and depart from E or F. All concourses are connected inside security by the Plane Train.


  • Flying from Chi to Freeport Bahamas thru Atanta
    Jan 11, 2015
    We are flying Delta from Chicago ORD to ATL and have only 55 min to catch fly to Freeport Bahamas ( Delta Connections), is this enough time , do we have to go thru security ? , then we are coming back from Bahamas and have about the same time to get in the plane to Chicago , again is it enough time and do we have to go thru security then?


    All you have to do both times is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, no security needed. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. On your return you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Freeport.


  • Transfer time from International
    Jan 11, 2015
    Coming into Atlanta from London on BA. Transferring to Delta flight to go to Charleston. I will not be able to check-in online for Delta flight before I leave London. Can I check in with Delta at F and then drop off baggage there?


    No, since you are on a domestic flight you will have to take the shuttle to the domestic terminal to check your baggage with Delta.


    Thanks for the quick response. How much time should I allow from landing to getting the domestic flight


    At least 2 hours, preferably 2.5

    connection jfl-atl-sjo: hi, we arrive on DL from JFK to ATL at 8:39 am and continue on DL to SJO at 9:50 am. is this enough time to make the connection? thanks for any advice.


    Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse.


  • Delta Terminal
    Jan 7, 2015
    What terminal does Delta normally use when flying from Atlanta straight to Montego bay. Is it the international terminal or other. Please advise, thank you


    If you hold an Atlanta-Montego Bay ticket you should check in in the International Terminal.


  • Connection and Baggage
    Jan 6, 2015
    I leave from Fort Lauderdale to Atlanta, and then have two hours to catch my connecting flight to London. All with Virgin Atlantic and booked as one booking. Do I need to collect my bags or will it be automatically passed to my London bound flight? Are the terminals far to walk?


    You do not have to claim your bags. Your flight to Atlanta will be operated by Delta. All concourses are connected inside security by the Plane Train. You only have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to Concourse E or F where you will depart.
