  • FNT - ATL - BWI 35 minute connection

    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.

    I'm flying from Montgomery, Al to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina with a 45 min layover in Atlanta. Is 45 min enough time for me to get to my next terminal to catch my flight to South Carolina.

     

    No need to ask the same question twice

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You don't need to change terminals. You just have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse.

     

    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

     

  • 1h 5m layover enough?

    Hey, I have to book a couple flights soon so I'll be posting a bunch in flight connections for different airports, but I know Atlanta is infamous for delayed flights, not being on time, etc. I'm planning on booking a flight from Greensboro (GSO) to Charleston (CHS) next October on Delta, and they have me with an hour and 5 minute layover in ATL. It is a morning flight (around 9am), but is that enough time? Both flights are Delta.

     

    Flight delays at Atlanta aren't usually that bad unless there are lots of storms. Storms are rare in October. You should have 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 if your flights are on different concourses.

     

  • Getting to the International Terminal from Marta

    If you arrive for an International flight via Marta, do you go through domestic security & take the Plane Train to Concourse F? Is that allowed or is there a shuttle from the South Terminal to the Int'l Terminal?

     

    If you don't have bags to check and already have your boarding pass you can go through security in the domestic terminal and take the plane train. Otherwise you'll have to take the shuttle to the International Terminal.

    how easy is it to get to terminal s gate b26 to terminal s gate c34 for a connecting flight to NC

     

    All you have to do is take the Plane Train one stop from concourse B to concourse C. It shouldn't take more than 10 minutes.

    We are coming back from Punta Cana changing planes in Atlanta then on to DFW. We have 1 hr 26min layover all on Delta. Is that enough time and what do I do with my checked luggage?

     

    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 transfer desk, then go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse. You have 4 minutes shorter than the recommended time of 90 minutes. It's possible though. If you don't make it Delta has lots of flights from Atlanta to DFW to be rebooked on.

    I fly into ATL before connecting to a flight to Orlando. I have plenty of time, but my question is this: Will I have to claim my baggage and clear immigration/customs and then re-check everything? I just ask because I will have a huge surfboard bag and it's just a pain to deal with in lines, etc and want to know what to expect. Thanks!

     

    Yes, in Atlanta you will have to claim all your baggage, bring it through Customs, and then re-check it at the re-check desk.

     

    That is, assuming your inbound flight to Atlanta is international, you never specifically said it is.

     

    heh...yeah, flying in from Peru. Thanks for the info!

    Hello there, I am travelling from Vancouver, BC and arriving in Atlanta at 5:42am. I have an 1hr and 43 mins layover until my connecting flight to Washington, DC. Is an hour and 43 mins enough time for the connection? Thank you!

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

     

    Be aware that US Customs pre clearance ceases at 8.30 pm at Vancouver. If your flight departs for the US after this time, you will need to clear customs when you arrive at your destination . We were recently caught by this trap.

    I am arriving from Nassau to Atlanta have a 1hr layover to Dallas. Is this enough time for me to get from terminal I to terminal S to catch my flight

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse (E or F) to your departure concourse. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

     

    So yes that should be enough time.

    If your flight is nonstop you check in at International

    Hello, I'm arriving from Brussels in Atlanta with Delta and I have 1hr and 40 minutes to get my connection to Newark, also with Delta. Will I have enough time to go through customs, re-check my baggage etc?

  • Connecting in Atlanta to Mexico

    I am arriving to Atlanta from Charleston at 8:30 pm and connecting flight to Mexico next morning at 9:00am. Do I need to go through Immigration again in Atlanta if I get out to sleep at a hotel? Is there a baggage storage inside Atlanta airport so I do not have to carry it. Is there a place inside airport to sleep overnight? Thank you.

     

    You do not go through US Immigration when leaving the US. There is no baggage storage. There aren't many places to sleep in the airport. Get a hotel.
