  • Layover

    Traveling to Rome to Atlanta then to Sacramento.2 hour 10 min layover in Atlanta is that enough time to get luggage and go through to customs to catch flight to Sacramento. Or will luggage be transfered for us due to all flights on one ticket (all Delta flights).

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in the E/F concourse, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and take the plane train to your departure concourse and gate.

    Hi, going to orlando from montreal, through atlanta. Arriving in atlanta on delta flight 5207 at 6:08. Then departing atlanta on delta flight 1669 at 6:55. Is that enough time? Do i have to get bagage and recheck in or will that go through on its own?typically, what terminal do i arrive and depart and what is the best way to make sure i c ,atch my flight (i am with a 3 year old)!

     

    You will preclear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. You don't have to do anything with your baggage, you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • 47 Mins enough time

    I will be flying from Syracuse to Atlanta, then Atlanta to Montego Bay. I have only a 47 minute layover inbetween. Is this enough time?

     

    That should barely be enough time. You will take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where your flight to Montego Bay will depart.

     

  • Connecting from YYZ /ATL/SXM

    I will arrive with DL5481 and then to DL0908. Arrive at ATL 8.53am and next flight 10.35 am ATL/SXM. Could someone please tell me if the arrival and dep. from ATL/SXM from same terminal and do I need to pass through TSA. Do I need a Skytrain? Thank you. Prakton

     

    Both are in the international terminal so most likely you won't change but you may have to make one stop as E and F are international

     

    YYZ/ATL/SXM. In my itinenary it shows arrival at Terminal I ATL while it shows dep ATL/SXM from T-3. Are the terminals at ATL both alphabetical & nos? If I do need to take the train will it show nos & alpahabets ? Is the time enough for the transfer from DL 0908 to DL 4059?

     

    Atlanta doesn't have a Terminal 3. The concourses have letters. Both flights will be in E or F though, which are directly connected. You do not have to go through security. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Just follow the signs.

    This august I'll fly from Amsterdam to Aruba trough Atlanta. I'll have to wait there the connection to Aruba all the night (14 hours). Is it possible to go outside the airport and go to sleep in a hotel? Thank you for the advice.

     

    Yes, once you clear customs in concousre E/F you will be outside the secure area and can go wherever you want.

    This will be my first flight --- ever. I am looking at a flight out of New Bern on 3/10 into Atlanta with a 1hr 33min break between my connecting flight to Panama City Beach. I know the airport is huge, and I will have no idea what I am doing. Can I make my connection to PCB? Thanks.

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. Just follow signs to your departure gate.

     

  • Connection Times London-Tampa via Atlanta 1.5 hrs

    Hello, we are travelling from London to Atlanta with KLM into terminal 1 arriving 17.28 then departing for Tampa with Delta at 18.55 from Terminal S. Is this enough time. Also for the return journey - from Tampa to Atlanta with Delta arriving 20.29 terminal S then departing with KLM at 21.31 from terminal 1. Is this possible - it will be the holidays. Thank you.

     

    Atlanta does not have a Terminal 1 and in fact you do not have to change terminals at all. On your trip to Tampa you will arrive in concourse E or F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and then take the Plane Train to your departure concourse. 87 minutes will be very difficult to make that transfer. On the return trip you only need to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where your flight to London will depart. 1 hr is enough time there. Also, note that Delta will fly all of your flights. KLM doesn't fly from London to Atlanta.

     

    Thank you for your help. What time would you advise allowing to make the first connection - Atlanta to Tampa? Would it be advisable to alter the flight to allow more time. Thanks

     

    At least 90 minutes, preferably a little more.

    You do not need to collect your bags or go through security. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You have enough time.

    I'm traveling on a delta flight from MCO-ATL-BGI, with a 45 minute connection. Only using delta. Will i have to pass through security again and have enough time to make connection?

     

    You will not have to go through security. You just have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • 50 minutes enough time?

    I am flying Delta from Buffalo to Roanoke VA with a layover in ATL. The ticket I want to get only has a 50 minute layover in ATL. I have never been on a plane before and I am flying alone. Will I have enough time to make my connecting flight?

     

    Yes, that is enough time if your first flight is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security if your first flight is on-time. Dowload the delta app to your phone, look up your departure gate when you arrive in atl, then follow the signs to it.

    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

     

  • MKE - ATL - PLS

    Looking at MKE -> ATL #DL771 arrives 9:04AM, Departure is #DL509 to PLS. I'm guessing I can make the flight if things are on time but worried about my bags. Another option on AA is through CLT (but still only 50 minute layover). Will i make the connection in ATL?

     

    Or guess I should better say...will my bags make the connection?

     

    The 50 minute connection at CLT would probably be easier and safer.

     

  • Lincoln-Atlanta-Aruba Enough time?

    We are flying Delta and are scheduled for a 45 minute layover to catch the one and only flight of the day to Aruba. Can we make it? Can our luggage make it? If we don't make it, would we have to wait an entire day or would they try to send us on via Miami or another city?

     

    You can make it if your first flight is on-time and you hurry. If you do miss your connection you could probably make them try to rebook you via Miami on American.

     

    Thanks! What do you think about the luggage?

     

    If you can make it usually your luggage does too.

    I am leaving from Toronto March 13, flight Delta 2551 arriving in Atlanta at 9:34am. Connecting flight to Montego Bay Delta flight 727 leaving at 10:35 with no luggage being checked. Will I make my flight?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Atlanta is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate which will both be in the E or F concourse. You should have enough time.
