Hi in april we will be flying with 2 young kids from Amsterdam with Delta arriving in Atlanta 1641 and flying to Orlando at 1855 with Delta. Alltogether we have 2 hours and 14 minutes. Is this sufficient time? Considering that we travel with 2 kids aged 2 and 4 and we are travelling with lugagge. Thanks a lot
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I'm considering an international delta ticket that arrives in Atlanta from Brussels and gives ninety minutes to get through customs and catch the flight to Denver. Delta offers this as one ticket but is that really possible.
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Hey all,

I am landing in Terminal S and have a 45 min layover for my flight to amsterdam. The ticket I have does not state the terminal the flight is taking off from. It is a delta flight.
You don't actually have to change terminals. You just go from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse on the Plane Train. Your flight to Amsterdam will depart from Concourse E or F. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.
Arrive Delta from Charleston connect to Delta to Toronto. Wheelchair assistance has been requested. Is 90 minutes sufficient time?
Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi, I am flying into ATL on a Delta flight and will arrive at 8:32PM from Dallas, TX. My next flight is at 9:15 PM and begins boarding at 8:35PM. Is this even possible? I literally land when my next flight is boarding. Very concerned, considering I had to reschedule this flight after our original being cancelled. Any help would be appreciated.
Yes, that is possible. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which should take less than 15 minutes, which means if the flight from Dallas is on-time you'll be at your gate at 8:47 at the latest. The flight won't close until 9:05-9:10. You have enough time as long as the first flight is on-time. It obviously doesn't leave much time to spare if it's not.
Thank you! Now I am just praying our flight lands on time. :)
We are arriving at Terminal 1 and our connecting flight is leaving from Terminal S is this far away or close
Atlanta does not have a Terminal 1. Where are you flying from and to and on what airlines?
I have 46 minutes to get my connecting flight to London.. already been through customs etc in fort myers is this enough time???
You will not go through Customs in Fort Myers. You will go through security there. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. In Atlanta all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Plane Train. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I am flying into Atlanta on Delta connecting to Belize - is 51 minutes enough to get my flight?

Flying back from Belize to Atlanta to Indianapolis with a 2 hour 12 minute layover. Is this enough time to make connection?
Both of those layovers should be sufficient. All you have to do in Atlanta on your way to Belize is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am traveling from ATL to Dulles and onto Johannesburg. Do I check in at the international terminal in Atlanta or domestic?
If the flight to Dulles is operated by United you check in at the Domestic terminal. United doesn't have a check in desk in the International Terminal.
Hi, I have never been on an airplane before. I already booked my ticket and now I am beginning to freak out about how short the layover is in ATL (40 minutes). The airline is KLM managed by Delta. Will I be able to make it to my international flight in time or should I cancel my ticket?
That is enough time if the flight from Fort Wayne is on-time. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. However, it doesn't leave much time to spare if the flight from Fort Wayne is delayed.
Thank you, I really appreciate your response! I am so nervous to fly for the first time and try to navigate all the different airports. I am watching videos online trying to get a feel for ATL. Thank you for your time:-]
