  • Getting to terminal s
    May 16, 2015
    I am flying in from New Orleans to Atlanta with a 30 minutes layover , my tickets online says terminal s to get to Boston how do I find terminal s?


    You don't actually have to change terminals. You just have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse to youir departure concourse. You have barely enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Louisville to ATL DL then on to LHR BA
    May 17, 2015
    Hi - looking to book Delta from Louisville to ATL then tranfer with second ticket to BA flight to LHR. Wilth checked bags. Would 2h 10mins between scheduled landing and take-off times be sufficient ?


    That will be difficult as you will have to claim your bags in the domestic terminal, then take the shuttle bus to the International Terminal to re-check them with BA.


    Thanks. What would be a minimum safe layover for that transfer ?


  • Connection concerns with international flight
    May 14, 2015
    We will be arriving Delta 2 PM from Paris, trying to connect at 3:30 PM with United airlines. Will we need to pick up our baggage after customs and then how to get to United departure gates?


    You have to claim baggage in order to go through US Customs. Where are you connecting? I assume you are purchasing two separate tickets


    Yes were purchasing two separate tickets and thank you will have to pick up our luggage on arrival into Atlanta. Then go over to the United departure terminal. Just hope an hour and a half is enough


    With checked baggage no that would not be enough time.


  • Delta Intl. gates
    May 13, 2015
    We have a friend coming from Chile on an Intl. Delta flight. Would it arrive at gate F, International, or would it arrive on a gate at the Domestic South?


    If the flight is nonstop from Chile to Atlanta, he would arrive in the International Terminal.


  • International Arrival at F, Domestic Connection at S
    May 13, 2015
    Delta online reservations offers an itinerary of Paris to Atlanta, arriving Concourse F, with a connecting flight to LAX departing 1hr 51 min later and apparently departing from S (South Terminal?). It's also the last flight of the evening to LA. Does that connection time sound fairly reasonable? Or is there a high risk of missing the connection? Would we have go through a security checkpoint before getting to the S gates?


    Upon arrival in Atlanta, you will go through US Immigration, collect your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags ate the transfer desk, then go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse. You don't actually have to go to the S terminal. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • flying from CAK to Atlanta to Knoxville
    May 12, 2015
    In Atlanta I arrive at E32 and depart at D31 how hard is that to get to


    All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse, it shouldn't take more than 15 mins.


  • 45 min layover, arrive at terminal I, leave from terminal S
    May 10, 2015
    Travelling from Toronto to Brunswick GA, and airline schedule changes have left me with 45 min to make this transfer in Atl. Do I have enough time, and where do I go? Does this involve bus transfer between terminals? Thanks!


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • 45 minute layover, arrive at terminal T, leave at terminal E
    May 7, 2015
    Does 45 min. give me enough time to get from terminal T to terminal E? It is a flight from Houston to Atl to US virgin islands. Will our bags be transferred for us?


    Also, will we have to go through security again?


    Yes, your bags will be transferred for you and no you do not have to go through security. You just have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse.


  • London to Atlanta on VS, then on to MSY on DL
    May 5, 2015
    Hi, I'm travelling from London to Atlanta on Virgin Atlantic and have 1 hour 55 minutes to connect to a Delta flight from ATL to New Orleans. The flights are on separate bookings. I will need to clear immigration and am hoping to travel with cabin baggage only. Do you think this leaves me enough time? I will check in online for both flights.


    Yes, without checked bags this is doable, as after customs you can go through security and directly to your departure gate on the Plane Train.


    Thanks for your answer. It's now looking like I may not get everything I need to take into a cabin sized bag. I'm travelling transatlantic on premium economy, so my luggage should arrive (all being well!) fairly quickly on the carousel at Atlanta. Do you think there is enough time to drop a bag at Delta check in and make my connecting flight?


  • Delta flights

    Do all Delta flight arrive and depart from the same concourse? We have a 37 minute layover on a flight from Key West to GRR.


    Delta domestic flights use concourses T, A, B, and C.


  • Concourse E and Baggage Recheck
    May 2, 2015
    I will be flying DXB-ATL-NYC next month and had a question about rechecking my bags at Hartsfield for my connecting flight. If my flight arrives at Concourse E, do I still claim my bag at Concourse F baggage claim, or is there a separate baggage claim at the CBP station on Concourse E? Thanks so much!


    E and F basically share an immigration hall. Your bags will be in the hall you are funneled to.


  • Bag re-check MBJ-ATL-HSV
    Apr 30, 2015
    This is probably a stupid question on my part, but this will be my first time flying internationally so I just want to make sure. Will be coming back from Jamaica through Atlanta on the way to Huntsville, AL. I've heard you have to re-check your bags after clearing customs in Atlanta before going to my connecting flight to Huntsville. Do I need to tell the ticket agent in Jamaica to only check my bag to Atlanta or will they check it all the way through to Huntsville and the baggage handlers in Atlanta will know to send it to the customs area first and not on to the next flight? Again, probably a stupid question on my part, and I'm sure I know the right answer, but just wanted to double check since this is my first time flying internationally and want to make sure the process is as smooth as possible. Thanks!


    The bags will be tagged through to Huntsville and will come out on the belt in Atlanta. All bags on your flight from Jamaica will go straight to the belt, regardless of final destination.


    Sounds good. Thank you!


  • Enough connection time
    Apr 28, 2015
    Hello we're flying with Delta from Brussels to Los Angeles with a 85 minute connection in Atlanta. We will have to change terminal but I don't know them yet. Will we have enough time to go through US Immigration and Customs and then change terminal ? Thanks.


    You don't actually have to change terminals. You will arrive in the E or F gates, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse. 85 minutes is 5 minutes less than the recommended time. If you do miss your connection Delta has lots of flights from Atlanta to Los Angeles.


  • Arriving from Aruba on Delta - 12hr layover with baggage
    May 25, 2015
    Hello I have a ticket on Delta from Aruba to DFW with a 12 hour layover in ATL. I arrive Terminal I and Leave Terminal S. Do I have to recheck my baggage n ATL? Also if I leave the airport how do I get back into Terminal S?


    As long as both flights are the same day you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates are connected inside security by the Plane Train. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Aruba.


    Thanks. The flights are not in the same day. I arrive ATL 7:30pm and leave the next morning to DFW at 7:30am. Will Delta hold my bags until the next flight or do I have to go to the baggage claim and leave the secure area?


    No, in that case they will likely only check your bags through to Atlanta, but you can ask the agent in Aruba. If you do need to get your bags from the international terminal and do want to go straight to the domestic terminal (outside security), rather than to a hotel, there is a shuttle bus between them.


    Thank you. Your response is very helpful.


    My friend is traveling to Brussels with two children would she have to collect her bags and take to transfer desk


  • Connection time for Int. flights
    May 8, 2015
    Hi, I am flying from Memphis on June 18. at 5:12 and will be arriving in Atlanta at 7:44 and I will be arriving in Terminal South. My next flight is at 8:45 to Paris out of Terminal I. Do i have enough time and is there anything I should take notice of? Thank you


    You don't actually have to change terminals. You just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart. You should have plenty of time.


    What about my baggage? Do I have to pick it up or do they take it to my next plane for me?


    Your baggage will be transferred for you.
