Hi ! Please help - we have booked our tickets and land in ATL from the UK terminal i at 20:20 - we then fly out of terminal N to LAS at 22:32... Will this be enough time to get out and through customs and then back in to check in our bags on the domestic flight??? We are already thinking that for out long haul we are going to have to take our luggage as carry-on to save time, but we will need to check it in for the domestic flight as the allowance is too small for carry on... Many thanks in advance for any advice!
What airline are you flying to Las Vegas?
Hi - it's KLM i think? Operated via's manchester to Atl with a change in AMS so we'll be coming in from Amsterdam officially...
Oops sory I read your question incorrectly - we fly to LAS with SPIRIT airlines
Then that is not enough time with checked bags since you will have to clear US Immigration and Customs in the International Terminal, then take a shuttle (that runs infrequently) to the North Domestic Terminal, then check your bags with Spirit and go through security and to your departure gate on Concourse D. So either figure out how to bring a bag small enough that you can carry it on on Spirit or choose a later flight to Las Vegas (if on two separate reservations you need at least 3 hours, preferably a little more).
Oh yikes :( thank you for your help - there is no later flight to vegas and we have now already booked - I had no idea it would take so long. If we can take carry on do you think we might make it?
Yes, if you are doing carry-ons only and you check in online for your Spirit flight before leaving the UK you can probably make it.
Amazing thank you - fingers crossed! I've just called Spirit and changed the baggage allowance so here's hoping!!!
Sorry - one last question - so we will still need to clear customs... do we then still need to take the shuttle to the domestic terminal? or can we get straight to concourse D from security??
I'm flying in from Hartford Ct & connecting to Panama City Beach Florida tomorrow. What terminal is Delta?
You don't actually have to go to any terminals per se in Atlanta. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. Delta uses every concourse.
I ONLY have a 36 minute layover in ATL. I will exit my plane in Concourse A and my connection flight is in Concourse C. Is it possible to make the connection flight in only 36 minutes?
Yes, it's possible but leaves no time to spare if the first flight is delayed.
We have 1 hour between an arrival on Delta from DFW and a departure to London on Virgin Airlines. Is that enough time to make the connection? I understand there is no Customs on US departures. Thanks
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart and board your flight.
I'm traveling from Columbus,OH to the Dominican Republic, via Atlanta with Southwest. I have a little over an hour to change plans and go through customs in Atlanta is that enough time? I will have bags checked as well.
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Atlanta on the way to Punta Cana is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi. I am landing at Gate D7 and have 30 minutes to get to T3. How hard will that be? How do I do this the fastest? THANKS!
Atlanta does not have a "Terminal 3". What airlines are you flying and where are you flying from and to?
From Charleston to Atlanta and then Atlanta to Midway. Gate for connecting flight was T3. Looks like they have a concourse T. I called Delta though and they moved my flights. Said I would never make it. Thanks for trying to help me though!
You have time but go straight to your gate; terminal T gate 3 (T3) is all the way to the front of the airport. Follow the signs to the train and to Terminal T (4 stops from terminal D).
I'm flying from San Antonio to Amsterdam via Atlanta. I have 1 hr 7 mins to get off SAT flight which arrives in Terminal S, get through customs etc and get to Terminal I. Is that enough?
You don't actually have to change terminals and there is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Atlanta on your way to Amsterdam is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart and board your flight. You have enough time.
Hi, i'm interested if 2:16 is enough time to pass migration procedure. I land in terminal I (flight from Amsterdam) and have to go to Fort Myer from Terminal S. Is enought time to pick'up my baggage, go throuth migration and catch the next flight???
Yes, that is enough time. You don't actually have to change terminals. You will arrive in concourse E or F, 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.
I would like to find out if i have a flight from tampa on delta airlines to atlanta to johannesburg, south africa, will my bags get checked all the way to south africa or do i need to claim at baggage and get it rechecked? i am flying with delta airlines all the way through.
Yes, your bags will be checked all the way through. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi, I am flying on a single Delta ticket from Mexico city to Atlanta, and then from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale. Is 2.15 hrs enough time to make this connection? Thanks!
Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
