Hi everyone! I have a layover/connecting flight to ATL at terminal A and have 36 minutes to exit and find terminal D. Is this enough time? Is it better to take the tram or walk all the way to my gate?
A and D are just concourses, not Terminals. It is fastest to take the train by far. This is possible if the first flight is on-time.
Hi there! I'm returning to the US from a vacation in France and I'm due to land at ATL from CDG at 1715 on 8 November. My connecting flight from ATL to MOB leaves at 1901. I travel with only a carry-on and I have Global Entry. Is this doable? The tickets were all purchased through Delta although the CDG-ATL leg is an Air France. Thanks!
With carry-ons only and Global Entry, yes, that should be enough time.
Thanks so much!
Help - I am arriving at terminal B and have 45 minutes total to exit and find terminal S. Is this enough time?
And please tell me where is terminal S? Thank you
Atlanta doesn't have a Terminal B. If both flights are on Delta and the fist flight is domestic all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
Thank you ZAP
Zap, you obviously don't know what you're talking about. Atlanta does have a Terminal B, but they call them concourses. T,A,B,C,D,E,F. Delta is on the same terminal/concourse.
You just said it yourself - it's a concourse, not a terminal. The two terminals is the North/South domestic building and the International building.
Hi everyone

I'm travelling to Knoxville TN from London Heathrow with Virgin/Delta which involves a change of flight at Atlanta.

As an international passenger with hold luggage, is an hour long enough between the Virgin Atlantic flight landing and the Delta flight leaving for me to transfer?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the Plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart.
Thanks ZAP - very helpful - do you know whether or not I need to collect my hold luggage during the transfer, or if this is done automatically for me at Atlanta? Both there and on the way back to London?
Also I'm aware I will need to go through security as a non-US citizen - how bad a delay does security add at ATL as part of that hour layover???
You will not have to go through any special security in Atlanta on your way to London. I don't know where you heard that but it's not true. You also don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta on your way to London.
Sorry I misread and thought you were just talking about the trip from Knoxville to London, on the way from London to Knoxville, in Atlanta, 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 take the plane train to your departure gate.
Also, an Hour is not enough time for an International to Domestic connection in Atlanta. The realistic minimum is 2 hours.
I fly into ATL from Canada (YUL) at 9:16 on Delta and have a connecting flight at 10:11pm (55 minutes)in South Terminal.Is that enough time?
You don't actually have to change terminals. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse and board your flight.
Can we check our baggage all the way thru our connection flight or do we have to take it off and take it to the connection flight?
You don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta.
I booked a cheap tickets on Expedia and I didn't get the itinerary until after I paid for the tickets. I am flying Delta to Atlanta and only have 41 minutes till my flight departs at the international airport for Rome. Is this enough time???
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time, you just take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to Concourse E or F where you depart. Obviously it leaves no time to spare if the first flight is delayed.
I arrive from LHR at 4.05P and leave for BHM at 6.15P. I have no checked bags. Is this enough time?g8
Yes, that is enough time.
My friend is coming to visit me in the Middle East. She has a layover of 2hrs once she arrives to Hartfield. Is this enough time to clear customs and make her connecting flight to the Netherlands(KLM)?
She is flying from San Jose Costa Rica to ATL for a connecting flight. I am sure that she has to clear immigration/customs
2 Hours is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
50 minute layover (not include disembarking) from what looks like C to E terminal. Should I look at trying to secure earlier flight out of SEA or will this be enough time. 1 passenger. Thank you very much
C and E are concourses, not terminals. You have enough time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
You arrive in concourse D and will have to go to the North Side domestic baggage claim. It will take you about 10-15 minutes to get to the baggage claim.
