  • Into ATL, out to Zurich
    Oct 27, 2016

    We are flying into ATL from PDX on Delta and connecting to a partner flight to Zurich. We have about a 75 minute transfer time. Will we need to go through another security gate between our domestic gate and the international terminal? We are concerned about having enough time.

     

    All you have to do in Atlanta is take the Plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart, no security necessary.

     

  • Mexico to Atlanta to Boston

    I'm flying from Mexico to Atlanta and 2 hours later from Atlanta to Boston, both with Delta. Where would Terminal 2 be and is it the same as Terminal South? And do I have to claim my bags and pass through security again in Atlanta?

     

    There is no Terminal 2 in Atlanta. You will arrive in the E or F gates, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and then go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse. Perhaps the Terminal 2 denotes the terminal you are departing from in Mexico. You should have just enough time.

     

  • PUJ to ATL on SW / Change to AA from ATL to PHX

    I am flying back from PUJ (Punta Cana) to ATL on SW which arrives in ATL at 5:30pm. My next flight is on AA going from ATL to PHX which departs at 7:59pm. Is this enough time for security/immigration/gate change from SW to AA, and check in?

     

    That's barely enough time if you have checked bags, as to re-check your bags you will have to take the shuttle bus from the International terminal to the domestic terminal, then re-check them with AA, then go through security. Without checked bags it will be much easier because if you check in online or on your phone you can just go through security in the International Terminal after you clear customs.

     

  • Connection time 1 hr 8 minutes okay!

    Nov. 28, the Monday after Thanksgiving weekend, I have a morning flight from Albany (ALB) to ATL arriving Terminal S (yes, I understand that is the south side of one of the terminals) with a connecting flight at Terminal I to SAN Salvador, El Salvador, both flights on Delta. Is 1 hr 8 minutes sufficient connection time? I don't see Terminal I on the map. Thanks!

     

    Yes, that is enough time. You don't actually have to change terminals. You will just take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart.

     

  • Connection time London to cancan via atlanta

    Hi, I am flying out of London to Mexico via Atlanta and have a 2hr layover. Is this enough time and do I have to collect bags and re check in. My first flight is virgin and second is delta, although booked though a package holiday. Thanks

     

    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 enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

    Thank you for your information. What about vice versa (CUN - ATL - LHR)?

    I will arrive in ATL from LGA on Sunday Dec. 18 at 18:45 to connect 40 minutes later to a flight to MEX. Do I have enough time? I don't have checked luggage.

     

    Yes, you have enough time, but there's no time to spare if the flight from LaGuardia is delayed. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart.

     

    Thanks. But why does the itinerary speaks of terminal I and terminal S?

     

    That's just a template that it hast to fill. You don't actually have to go to "Terminal S".

     

  • Connecting at Atlanta back to Heathrow from New Orleans

    Hi I have a flight from New Orleans (Delta) to Atlanta arriving at 5.45, and I need to get a connecting flight back to Heathrow (Virgin) at 6.45. Is an hour enough? Will I have to collect luggage and drop it off again. Getting worried as my flight times changed on the first flight resulting in only an hour. It is on the same ticket.

     

    You don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta on your way to London. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. You have enough time.

    Hello. we will be flying from Jamaica on Delta December to JFK but connect ATL. on the itinerary we arrive at Maynard Jackson Intl terminal , then depart from the South terminal to JFK. whats the procedure?

     

    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. You do not actually need to go to the "South Terminal".

     

  • From RSW to AMS

    I arrive in Atlanta from Fort Myers (RSW) at 4.35pm and my flight leaves at 5.52pm to Netherlands (AMS). Is 1 hour 17 minutes enough to get through the queues etc?

     

    Update - - Delta Airlines flight 9436 inbound from RSW, Delta flight 75 outbound to AMS - 2 adults with a toddler, and I'm booking my luggage straight through on my 1 leg of my trip., But on my return leg, but when I fly back from Netherlands to ATL, I need to recheck my luggage.

     

    You don't have to go through any queues. All you have to do in Atlanta on your way to Amsterdam is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate using the Plane Train. Yes, on the return you will have to claim your bags upon arrival in Atlanta to go through US Customs then immediately re-check them.

     

    Thank you! What is your view on the return from Amsterdam? Do you think that 1h40 min is enough to check in my bags and go to the departure gate to RSW?

     

    It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

     

    Does it make a difference that we land at ATL from Netherlands on Sunday, 1st Jan at 7pm? Hoping that the airport is quiet and thus we''ll move faster.

     

    That will be a fairly busy travel day, with lots of people returning from vacations that day.

    I am considering booking a flight from Havana to Houston via Atlanta in February next year. First class, hand carry only. Will 1 hr 11m be enough for immigration and my connection?

     

    My bad. 1 hr 11 minutes was outbound. Inbound is 2 hrs 47 minutes.

     

    Yes, that is enough time for the inbound connection.

    I am flying into ATL from SDQ (International). My connecting flight to DCA departs 50 min after I arrive. I won't have any checked bags, will I make my flight?

     

    No, that is not enough time for an International to domestic connection in Atlanta, even without checked bags.

    Hi. I will be traveling from Jamaica, connecting at ATL to Amsterdam. How do I navigate myself around. Which gate will I be connecting. How do I get mt bags before connecting? Thank you

     

    You will arrive in Concourse E or F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags (it will be right after), then go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate, which will be in the same building you arrived in.

    I'm flying in from IAD and have 45 min connection time between the inward and outward flight to PBI (Delta). Is it enough time?

     

    Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Dulles is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    Looking into an early morning Delta flight on Sun Aug 6th 2017 from PNS to SLC. Lay-over in ATL is 39 minutes. Is that doable?

     

    Yes, it is doable if the flight from Pensacola is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
