  • Is 49 minutes enough between national and international flights?

    I am flying from Kansas City to Milan, Italy, through Atlanta. Is 49 minutes enough time in Atlanta to make my connection?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart.

    I arrive from SD at gate can how long will it take to get to gate E12 tfor flight 837 to Honolulu?

     

    I arrive from Louisville on delta flight 866 to concourse C, I have 42 minutes to catch flight 837 to Honolulu from E concourse. Do I have ample time?

     

    That should barely be enough time. You just have to take the Plane Train from concourse C to Concourse E. However, it doesn't leave much time if your first flight is delayed.

    Myself, husband and 2 sons arrive in ATL from MSY. Three of us travel on to Costa Rica 2.5 hours later and eldest son goes to SEA, then YYJ 30 mins later. All flights booked with Delta. I presume all of us do not need to pass through security again, but is there somewhere we can all sit together until our international flight- when eldest son can then go to the Domestic terminal- or do we have to separate on arrival?

     

    You don't have to go to the "domestic terminal" or "international terminal" . After you arrive you can all go to the departure gate for your flight to Costa Rica in concourse E or F via the Plane Train. Once you board your eldest son can take the Plane Train to his departure concourse. All gates at ATL are connected inside security by the plane train.

     

    Thank you for being so helpful :)

    Flying from Cozumel on May 10th and arriving on Delta at 5:24 PM to make a connecting Delta flight at 7:15 PM. Is 1 hour 50 minutes enough time to go through customs and make the connecting flight?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will go through immigration, customs, and bag re-check all in concourse E/F, then security and you will then take the plane train directly to your departure concourse.

    I'm flying from Manchester, England and connecting in Atlanta on our way to Tampa. I will have two hours to get my 20-weeks-pregnant self, a five-year-old, and a three-year-old through the connection. We are US citizens, if that helps. Will I have enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

    Flying in from Kansas City arriving at 9:01 and leaving for Cabo in International Terminal 49 minutes later. What is best and fastest way to make it on time. Two younger people ready to run!

     

    The only way is to take the Plane Train. You simply have to go from your arrival concourse to Concourse E or F where you will depart. You do not actually have to go to a separate terminal. You will have plenty of time if your first flight is on-time.

     

    Thank you. The plane Train is back at the Domestic Terminal though correct? So we will need to essentially walk away from the concourse E or F to get on the train. Then the departures is on the 2nd floor so take the escalator?

     

    The Plane Train connects every concourse inside security - you don't have to go all the way back to the domestic terminal to access it. You can get on in your arrival concourse.

     

  • Transit time from Intl to Domestic South terminal

    Hello We are travelling from Paris CDG on Tue 18th Aug (AF0688) and arrive at ATL at 17:10 at the Intl terminal. Our connecting flight from ATL to MCO is scheduled at 18:55 (AF2716) from the South terminal. We were originally due to depart at 20:55 on flight AF8484 however the airline has changed the flight arrangements. Do we have enough time (1hr 45 min) to clear customs, passport control etc and get between the terminals before our flight to MCO or would we be better trying to arrange the later flight?

     

    That should be enough time. Note that you don't actually have to change terminals. You will arrive in Terminal E or F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then take the Plane Train directly to your departure concourse.

     

    Many thanks

    WE ARE SCHEDULED TO ARRIVE FROM HEATHROW ON VIRGIN ATLANTIC AT 2PM. WE HAVE A FLIGHT TO RICHMOND AT 3:45 PM. ON DELTA. I AM READING ON HERE ABOUT HAVING TO CLAIM BAGS BEFORE PROCEEDING TO OUR FLIGHT TO RICHMOND. IS THAT CORRECT OR WILL WE JUST HAVE TO CLEAR CUSTOMS AND THE BAGS TRANSFERRED AUTOMATICALLY?

     

    Yes, upon arriving in concourse E/F you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and then take the Plane train to your departure concourse.

    We will fry from the Dominican Republic to London via Atlanta and have 2h 20 mins for the transfer there. Would that time be sufficient? Also, do we have to collect our luggage and the re-check it again?

     

    Just to add to my question - both flights are with Delta.

     

    Yes, you will arrive in the E/F concourse, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and back to your departure gate which will also be in E/F.

     

    Many thanks, ZAP. Do you happen to know in case we miss our connection to London is it up to Delta to offer us an alternative free of charge flight? Both flights are on the same ticket.

     

    Yes, you will be rebooked on the next available flight to London free of charge. However, if the next available flight isn't until the next day they will not pay for a hotel in Atlanta unless your first flight was delayed due to a mechanical problem.

    Arrive in ATL on a delta flight from Cincinatti and have 40 mins to get to a virgin flight to London - is this enough time as am travelling with an elderly parent?

     

    That is barely enough time and leaves very little to spare in case your first flight is delayed. You will have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F.

     

    Thanks - seems bizarre that Delta have moved us onto this flight then as originally we had over an hour. As it is the airline that has done this flight change do you have any furthur advice please?

    We arrive from Manchester Delta airlines in Atlanta at 14.27 in International terminal with connecting flight to Newark at Delta again16.20 from South Terminal.Whats the procedure and is there enough time between flights?? Also what happens if arriving flight is late and connection missed?? Also on return journey we have 77 minuted between flight, both flights again Delta!..procedure and enough time??

     

    On your way to Newark, you will arrive in concourse E/F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, go through security and ride the plane train to your departure concourse. You have enough time. On your return to Manchester, all you have to do in Atlanta is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E/F where you will depart. No security or passport check. Again, you have enough time.

    I am arriving back to the US from Copenhagen stopping in Canada with Air Canada,aArriving in Atlanta at 6:52 pm and need to fly out with Delta to arrive at my home dedstination at 8:35 pm. Will I be able to get through cutoms and make my connecting flight with Delta

     

    I'm unclear on your itinerary. Did you purchase CPH-Toronto-Atlanta from Air Canada and then a separate ticket from Atlanta to somewhere else in the US? If so you will pre-clear US Immigration in Toronto. I can't answer this question well without a more clear picture of your itinerary.
