I arrive at the South Terminal at 9.27 am from Chicago and departs at 11.05 am from the North Terminal to Miami do I have sufficient time?
You don't actually have to change terminals if you don't have checked bags, you can go straight from your arrival gate to your departure gate if you check in online for your second flight. However, if you do have checked bags you will have to claim them in the South side of the domestic terminal, take them to the second airline on the north side, re-check them, and go through security, which would be difficult to do in that time-frame. What airlines are you flying?
Flying Virgin (VS109) out of MAN arriving into ATL at 14.45. Connecting Delta flight (DL2433) leaves for SFO at 16.25. Will 1.40hr connection time be sufficient? I would ideally like to have checked luggage, and will be able to use APC. Thanks.
That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Flying from YYZ to MSY with a 1h layover in ATL. Is that enough time to clear customs (if I need to) and transfer planes? Flying carry on. Thanks!
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. 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 enough time.
Thank you!
Going to the Caribbean. Arrive it Atlanta with 1 hour layover. Changing from a Delta domestic to a Delta international flight with a checked bag. Is 1 hour enough time?
Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Hi we will be flying from Aruba and connecting through Atlanta to fly back to the UK, can we clear passport control in Aruba for the US connection if we are not US citizens?
Yes, everyone pre-clears US Immigration and Customs in Aruba.
Sept 16th, MSY to ATL (VS5238) then ATL to LHR (VS4010). Both flights operated by Delta. Approx 50 minutes to make the connection flight. Is this possible?
Yes, that is possible. All you have to do is go from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart on the Plane Train.
Hi, I'm flying with Virgin Atlantic from Manchster, UK landing in ATL at 15:10 and I need to catch a flight to PDX at 16:46, is this possible? My second flight is operated by Delta but it was all one booking. This is my first time flying so far on my own and i'm really worried I wont make my flight!
It's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
I have a virgin flight from London to ATL that lands at 1:55PM into T4 and then I have a Delta flight (booked separately) from TS going to Austin at 4:22PM. Do I have enough time to go through immigration, collect my checked bag and get to the Domestic terminal to check into my delta flight?
Atlanta does not have a Terminal 4. You will arrive in the E/F Gates and if your bags are tagged through to your final destination, take the shuttle to the Delta side of the Domestic Terminal, re-check your bag, and go through security. If you aren't able to get your bags tagged through this will be quite difficult.
I'd like to know if a connection of 1h 16m for Delta flight 751 from Boston, to Delta 42 to Gulfport MS is enough time?
Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
Thanks for your quick reply! I will book it right now.
Hi we are flying London Heathrow to Atlanta with Virgin and then delta to Orlando we only have 1hr 20minutes to do this, I think it's not gonna be enough time and really worried about it. I'm also confused as virgin sold this as a package. There are 5 of us travelling. Please help, thank you
Yes, Virgin was foolish to sell this package. The realistic International to Domestic connection time at Atlanta is 2 hours. If you do miss your connection, Delta does fly hourly flights from Atlanta to Orlando.
