    I am flying into ATL from Wichita (ICT) and land at Terminal S. I have 2h35m to transfer to Terminal I for my flight to London (LHR). As this is such a busy airport and confusing to me from a look at the map I would like to know if it is terribly complicated to switch Terminals and how long (approximately) it should take to do so? Including Security checks of course. Thanks!!

     

    You don't actually have to change terminals. You will arrive in Concourse A, B, C, or D and depart from Concourse E or F. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.

    Approximately how long does it take to get from Int Termal to Domestic terminal AFTER immigration, baggage collect,customs ect....Thank you

     

    After re-checking your bags you will go through a special security line for connecting passengers and take the Plane Train directly to your departure concourse. From the point when you clear back through security to reaching your departure gate should take no more than 10 minutes.

     

    Many thanks

    Hi,my wife and i are booked on a flight from MAN to ATL (Virgin ) then onto Newark (Delta ) in Nov 2016.We arrive @1445, and the Newark flight leaves @1755.Will we have sufficient time to transfer after immigration, baggage collect, customs and then journey to domestic terminal. Thank you.

     

    Yes, 3 hours is plenty of time. You don't actually have to change terminals. After re-checking your bags you will go through a special security line for connecting passengers and take the Plane Train directly to your departure concourse.

     

    Many thanks

    Hi our Virgin flight will be arriving at Terminal 1 and our connecting flight be a Delta flight leaving from terminal S. 1. will we need to recheck our luggage 2. how long between the terminals Thanks Ria

     

    You don't actually have to change terminals and that "1" is actually an "I". You will arrive in the E/F concourse, 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 directly to your departure concourse - no need to actually go to the "S" Terminal. 90 minutes is the minimum International to Domestic connection time in Atlanta but I recommend 2 hours.

    Hi - I will be flying with Air France from Brussels to Las vegas with a stop in Atlanta. On the e-ticket it says the Brussels - Atlanta flight will arrive at Terminal I and the Atlanta - Las Vegas flight will depart at Terminal S. How do I go from terminal I to terminal S and what about customs, luggage etc. I have a little less than 2 hours to change planes.

     

    Both flights will be on Delta, not Air France. In Atlanta, 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 then take the plane train to your departure gate, which will likely be in concourse T, A, B, or C. You don't actually have to go to the "S Terminal". You should have enough time.

    Hi I'm flying from Jamica to Atl landing at 16.05 with Delta and then transferring to another Delta flight to Liberia, Costa Rica at 17.55. Do I have enough time and will I have to go through immigration and collect bags (and re-check in) ?

     

    Yes, you will 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. You should have enough time. You will need a US Transit Visa if you are a Jamaican citizen.

     

    Thanks, I am a British citizen and have an ESTA, is that all I need and will it make a difference to the transfer time?

     

    Sorry, one more question, is it the same terminal?

     

    Yes, everything will be in the E/F concourse which are part of the International Terminal.

    Hi, We are planning a trip from Ireland. Due to fly from Dublin on KLM flight KL6177 landing at 14.01 at Atlanta. Our connection flight then to Orlando is with Delta and departs at 16.00 DL2586. Will we need to collect our bags and recheck them in? Also will we need to to pass through immigration? Finally will this connection time be enough? Thanks

     

    Both of your flights will be on Delta. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You have plenty of time.

    Flying in from Norfolk, VA Feb 2. I have only 71 min to get to the international terminal to leave for Cancun. Will that be enough time?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You don't actually have to change terminals - just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate using the Plane Train.

    Hi, I have a trip from MSY to ATL then CDG. I just have 52 min for connecting flights. Is that enough? How long is the trip from domestic concourse to the international? Best

     

    Yes, that is enough time. it should take you less than 15 minutes to get between concourses on the Plane Train.

    Arriving to Atlanta airport via delta airlines at 3.55pm and leaving atlant for LA airport at 4.25 pm. Is that a connection possible to make in that time?. What are my options if I miss my connection

     

    It's barely possible if the first flight is on-time and domestic. if you miss your connection you will be rebooked on the next available flight to Los Angeles.

    Hi, We are travelling with Air France on 17th August arriving at 14:20 (AF682) from CDG with 1 hour 35 mins connection to Orlando 15-55 (AF8454). Connections all booked on the same booking reference. Does this give us enough time to clear immigration, baggage, customs, baggage recheck to reach our connection? If we were to miss the connection what's the procedure to follow?

     

    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly. If you miss your connection you will be rebooked on the next available Delta flight to Orlando. They do fly hourly flights from Atlanta to Orlando.

    We are travelling from fort Myers to Kansas City on Feb 8th. We arrive at 09.50 (flight 2270) and are due to leave for Kansas City at10.25 (flight 2075). Seems very tight timing. Is it possible?

     

    It's possible but it doesn't leave much time to spare if the first flight is delayed. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    HI. Our Delta flight from Memphis lands in ATL at 15.36. Our connecting flight with Virgin departs at 17.45. Presumably we will have to collect our hold luggage and re-check this in to Virgin, plus go through security again at ATL. Do you think we have given ourselves enough time for this?

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation then you don't have to claim your bags in Atlanta or go through security. If that's the case then you should have plenty of time.

     

    Thankyou for your comments. However when I was on the online chat earlier with Virgin the rep said that we would have to collect our bags in Atlanta and go through security. The ticket is an e-ticket, all flights booked at the same time, all under 1 booking ref. We are therefore a bit confused. If we do have to collect bags etc, do we still have enough time do you think?

     

    The Virgin rep is confused. They are describing the process when entering the United States. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    ok, thanyou very much for your help.

    We are flying through Atlanta tomorrow - connecting at 10 am to Florida. Will we have a problem due to the East Coast storm and snow?

     

    Things should be fine by tomorrow as long as you aren't coming from Baltimore/Washington. Atlanta wasn't really affected by it.
