I'm flying from Madrid to Phoenix with a 2 hour layover in Atlanta with Air France operated by Delta airlines. Will I need to collect my luggage and re check it? Do I have to change terminals? Thank you!
You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse. You have enough time.
I am flying back from Paris in March. Paris-Toronto-ATL on Air Canada. Couldn't get a cheap connection from ATL to JAX, so I'm using Southwest points to get home. Southwest flight to JAX is about 2 hours after we arrive ATL on Air Canada from Toronto. Not sure how my checked baggage needs to be handled. Can I recheck at CBP in the International Terminal, or will I have to take it all the way to the Main terminal to check it? I have Global Entry, so I'm hoping to get through CBP pretty quickly. Thanks!
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You will claim your bags in the International Terminal and then have to take the shuttle to the North Domestic terminal to re-check your bags with Southwest and go through security. You need at least 2.5 hours for your connection.
I am flying Dayton to fort Myers with a 45 min layover in Atlanta. We land and our next plane is slated to board 15 mins after landing. Scary. Will I have enough time. I have carry on luggage
Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Dayton is on-time. All gates are connected inside security by the plane train. If you miss your connection Delta has almost hourly flights from Atlanta to Ft. Myers.
Hi. I have a flight from Washington DC to Atlanta by southwest airlines that will arrive at 8:30 am in N terminal. I have another flight at 10:30 am by Delta from Atl to Kansas City that will take off from S terminal. How can I go from N to S terminal. I have only carry on, should I go through the security check in Atlanta again
If you only have carry-ons you can check in online for your Delta flight and go directly to your departure gate - you don't have to go to the "S" or "N" Terminals.
I am flying from cancun to atlanta and from atlanta to amsterdam, arriving at f9, bagage at f7 and departure at f3. I will have 1,5 hours, will i make it?? And more importantly; do i have to recheck bagage in this case?
You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
You will not have to recheck your bags since you have another international flight. You only recheck your bags when you're connecting somewhere in the U.S
Jp, that is only true in DFW, IAH, and MIA. It is not true in Atlanta, unless something has changed very recently.
Flying Delta from St. Louis MO to Destin FL. With a layover in Atlanta of 1 hour 35 minutes. This is with a baby. Our flight out of Atlanta to Fort Walton airport is also Delta. Do we need to pick up our baggage in Atlanta and be re-checked? Or will it go right on over to our next flight out of Atlanta? Also are all the Delta terminals in the same area? Or is it possible we will have to hurry quickly our next gate? Thank you!
You don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta. Delta uses 5 different concourses in Atlanta for domestic flights. They are all connected inside security by the Plane Train. You have plenty of time if your flight from St. Louis is on-time.
If I travel with Delta from Bogota to Montreal do I have to claim my baggage and the recheck? I have 2 hours lay over entering terminal F and leaving terminal D...will be there enough time?
Yes, you do. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse.
I'm a British citizen flying from Manchester Airport to Atlanta. I then have 1h35m to make my connecting flight from Atlanta to Tucson. Will I have enough time to do this? I booked through Expedia and assumed their systems would leave me enough time to make the connection but now I'm not so sure, especially if I have to pass through security and check in my luggage all over again.

Must be joking it took us 3 hrs from Delta international flight disembarkation to gate for Southwest.
