  • SCL - ATL - LAX

    Hey! I'll be flying soon from SCL (Chile) airport to LAX, with 2 hour layover in ATL. I'm a first time flyer (by myself, that is) and I'm a bit scared as of what I'll have to do once I get to Concourse F (the INT'L flights terminal) and how to get to the Domestic flights terminalto catch my flight to LAX. Will I have to pass through security again? What about flight check-in? How will I know what train/shuttle/whatever to take to the Delta Airlines terminal for domestic flights? I know this sounds silly, but I just need to feel safe and make sure that I won't get lost there, since the airport back home isn't as big as this one. Thanks!!

     

    You will be checked in and get your boarding pass for both flights in Santiago. Once you arrive in atlanta you will be funneled to US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then follow signs for connecting passengers and re-check bags at the re-check desk, then go through security. Then take the plane train (the only train you can take) to your departure concourse. You can get your departure gate from the monitors after your clear customs or from delta.com or the delta app on your phone. You have enough time.

     

  • Is 50 minutes enough layover time?

    Hi, I am traveling from Columbus, OH to Madrid with a 50 minute layover in Atlanta, will this be enough time to connect if there were no delays?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart.

    Note that your first flight is operated by Delta. You say you are departing before you are arriving. Do you have the times backwards?

     

    Oops,sorry. Yes you are correct. We arrive at 18:10 and depart at 19:10.

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You just have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart.

     

  • connection between terminals within security zone?

    my daughter will be arriving into ATL from CLT at Terminal S and she will need to connect to terminal I for her international flight to CDG. Can she connect between the two terminals without having to exit the serurity zone or will she have to go through security again? Thanks! She has one hour to do that. OK?

     

    She actually doesn't even have to change terminals. She just has to take the plane train from her arrival gate in concourse T, A, B, C, or D to her departure gate in concourse E or F. These are connected inside security. She should have enough time.

    flying delta nyc to atlanta then to kingston jamaica with 49 min layover...can i make it

     

    Yes, it's possible. You just have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart. But there is no time to spare if your flight from NY is late.

     

    do they check the luggage straight to destination

     

    yes, they do assuming you purchased your tickets together on one reservation. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.

    I'm flying Delta from Charlotte to Jacksonville and have a45 min layover in Atlanta is this enough time for connecting flight and how do I use Plane Train

     

    Yes, that is enough time. To us the plane train you simply follow signs pointing to the other concourses. This leads you to the center of the concourse where there is a big down escalator. Take the escalator down and there you are, at the plane train.

     

  • Orlando to Milwaukee via Atlanta

    Hi, We are tourists, flying from Orlando to Milwaukee with a connection at Atlanta, all through Delta. We have a connecting time between flights of 1 hr 11 min. I can see from previous replies that that should be sufficient, but needed to confirm if thre are any extra checks for non-US citizens that may take time. Also in the worst case that we our flight to ATL is delayed, does Delta have frequent flights to Milwaukee ? Thanks in advance

     

    When traveling domestically in the US, all passengers are treated the same, regardless of nationality. Delta has 7 daily flights from Atlanta to Milwaukee including one that leaves as late as 10:24 PM.

    I'm flying from Buffalo to Orlando and have a 40 minute layover in Atlanta, is that enough time? I'm taking Delta Air

     

    That's enough time if your first flight is on-time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. If your flight is late and you miss your connection, Delta has almost hourly flights from Atlanta to Orlando that you can be rebooked on.

    I have a 50 minute layover flying with Delta on both flights. Do we have to go through customs? Is this enough time?

     

    You do not go through US Customs when leaving the US. You just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart.

     

    ZAP your feedback is greatly appreciated. The airport's website is geared for ground arrivals & doesn't address these needs of trNsferring pax.

    I have a 40 minute connection in ATL flying southwest. Do you think my connection flight will be out of the same concourse? And I won't have to reclaim my bags they will be put into my connecting flight? Thanks!

     

    Yes, all domestic Southwest flights use the same concourse. No you don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta.

    Hello, I am flying Delta Airlines from Flint, Michigan to Baltimore, Maryland and have a 35 minute connection in Atlanta. Will this be enough time to make my flight from Atlanta to Baltimore? Thanks.

     

    It's possible. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. However, it depends on your flight from Flint arriving on-time.

    Could you please tell me what concourse departing for myrtle Beach, South Carolina?

     

  • Help .. Is 1 hour 15 mins long enough ??

    Hello everyone .. my son is flying into Atlanta from London Heathrow, his flight is 20 mins delayed and won't arrive until 2.15pm ( Concourse F). He connects with a Delta flight to Newport News leaving at 3.30pm in another terminal ( C I think ). Not having visited Atlanta airport before, does he have a good chance to get his flight despite the delay & having to go through immigration .. not sure how far F is away from C .. thank you ..

     

    Yes, it's still possible if he is able to get through Immigration quickly. Once he re-checks his bags and goes through security, it's less than 5 minutes on the plane train to concourse C. If he does miss his connection, the next flight to Newport News isn't until 9:17 PM. Perhaps if you are picking him up you could call him and he could be asked to be rebooked to Norfolk instead. There are more flights (on larger planes, so likely more seats) going to Norfolk if you're OK with picking him up from there.

     

    Thank you for you response.. I'm in London so not picking him up .. but if he has issues getting onto another flight if he misses the 3.30pm flight I'll consider telling him about Norfolk .. Appreciated
