Hey everyone, I'm flying from MIA to ILM with a 54 minute layover in ATL. I land in ATL at 8:07am and depart at 9:01am (both flights are Delta). I've heard ATL is a super busy airport so I was just wondering if anyone has any tips? I'm a little worried the layover might be too short. Which terminal would I most likely arrive at and depart from?
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 all concourses, but your flights will likely be in A, B, or C.
So if we use the Plane Train we don't have the go through security again, correct?
Yes, that is correct.
Ok, thank you so much!!!
Hi! We will be arriving on the BA flight from LHR, scheduled to arrive at 20:10. All three of us will have Global Entry. We are considering purchasing tickets for the ATL to DFW on DL at 22:30. Is 2 hours and 20 minutes enough time? Will we have to change terminals with our bags, or will be be able to check them in and get our boarding passes in the same terminal BA arrives in? Thanks so much!
You will have to take your bags with you on the shuttle to the North side domestic terminal to re-check them with Delta and then go through security. This will be a very difficult connection but not impossible.
Sorry, I meant South side domestic terminal.
My Aunt is flying in to ATL domestic and I am flying in from Europe the same day, around the same time. She needs to come meet me at the International Terminal - is there a shuttle provided by the airport to get between the domestic and international terminals? Does it cost anything? Thank you!
What airlines is she flying? How much time does she have?
I'm flying from Fort Walton Beach to Atl, arriving at 16.46hrs. Will I have enough time to catch my flight to LHR which departs at 18.05hrs? What about my luggage etc?
Yes, that is enough time if both flights are on the same reservation. 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.
Thank you!
Hi,I am arriving in Atlanta from Canada on Delta and have a connecting flight on Delta in about 80 mins. I will have checked baggage. What is the process of transfer? Do I need to collect my baggage and then check it in again? Will the time be enough for that?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Canada. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
I'm arriving from Costa Rica and have 1 hour 50 min to get a connection to Amsterdam. Is that enough time?
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hopefully. Thanks!!!!
Hi all, I am considering a flight from Atlanta to Amsterdam with only 1h17m. Is that doable?
Where are you flying into Atlanta from?
flying to Atlanta from LAX 4/4 on Delta flight 2597. What terminal is it likely to arrive at? Need to connect to international Delta flight, only have 1 hr 10 min
You will arrive in Concourse T, A, or B. You will depart from concourse E or F. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You have enough time.
Hi. I'm flying from Amsterdam to Atlanta to Mobile, Al do I need to go through customs when I'm catching a connecting flight? I have 1 hour and 16 minutes layover..
In Atlanta you 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 take the plane train to your departure gate. The minimum international to domestic connection time in Atlanta is 90 minutes and I recommend 2 hours. Your connection is nearly impossible.
I don´t need to pick up mu bagage.. It will arrive in Mobile. And they change the time, so I have 2 hours and 6 min.. can that be done?
That is incorrect. You have to claim your bags to take it through US Customs, even though it will be tagged to Mobile. You can re-check it at the re-check desk immediately after. 2 hrs 6 mins should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Flying from...
Qatar airways doh - atl arriving at 16:55 (Terminal I)
I have 2hrs 20mins to collect luggage, go through immigration, recheck luggage, go through security and get to next gate (terminal south B...?) to catch my next flight....
19:16 - atl - ecp Delta

Is this at all possible? Are there any airport services to collect luggage/take me straight to immigration/vip to go through immigration quicker?

Best way get from Concourse C to Concourse F? how many minutes?
The only way is the Plane Train. It shouldn't take more than 15 minutes.
