  • Do I have enough time
    Aug 2, 2016

    Hi, I am not a US Citizen. I will be landing at terminal I, from London at 13:55 in mid-October. I, obviously, need to get through immigration, collect and transit my luggage and am due to be departing for Tampa from terminal S at 15:30. Should this give me enough time? I know that it can often take a lot of time to get through US immigration. Thank you

     

    You don't actually have to change terminals. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then go through security and take the Plane Train directly to your departure concourse and walk to your departure gate. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly. If you miss your connection, Delta has hourly flights from Atlanta to Tampa that you can be rebooked on.

     

  • International Arrival with 1 hr 38 minute layor

    OK, what about arrival from Managua, Nicaragua with 1 hr 38 to get through customs and catch domestic connector to Des Moines, all on Delta?

     

    That is enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • FROM International terminal to domestic terminal?

    Hi, I'll be arriving in the International terminal from Bermuda, and my connection is in the domestic terminal. What's the process? Will I have to collect baggage, and exit and enter security again? I do clear US Customs in Bermuda beforehand. Thanks

     

    also, both of these flights are on Delta - (Bermuda to Atlanta to California)

     

    Since you preclear US Immigration and Customs in Bermuda you don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta. All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse and go to your departure gate.

     

    Thanks!

    I'm flying to Paris from Jacksonville FL, I have a flight connection in ATL a ONE hour and ONE minute layover, I'm landing at terminal S at 4:49 pm and taking off at terminal I at 5:50 pm on a Thursday, am I going to have to go through security check again in ATL, is 1h 1m enough time to get to terminal I, and how am I gonna get to terminal I, thank you!

     

    You don't actually have to change terminals. All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. You don't have to go through security. You have enough time.

     

  • 1 hour 15 minute layover in ATL - Tips?
    Jul 27, 2016

    We're flying into ATL this Saturday from LGA (Laguardia). Flight lands at 8:20am and then we have a flight out of ATL into St Lucia at 9:35am. 1 hour 15 minute layover. We're New Yorkers so used to walking fast and navigating trains, but still nervous about this short layover time. I was able to get us seats towards the front of the plane on our flight into ATL (row 9) so hopefully we can get off the plane relatively quickly. Any other tips? Is the airport very busy this early on a Saturday?

     

    Saturday is the least busy day. You should have enough time as long as your flight from New York is anywhere close to on-time.

     

  • Questions of time and how to proceed

    Hi, we fly from Omaha to San Jose (Costa Rica) with exactly one hour layover in Atlanta. This is why I'm a little bit nervous, it's vacation. Is this enough time, do we have to grab our bags, pass security or US Customs? The booking says we arrive at Terminal S and leave from Terminal I. Both I can't find at the terminal map. The second flights are from Liberia (Costa Rica) to Amsterdam, layover in Atlanta is three hours. Same questions about our bags, security, US customs, time. All flights are booked and operated by Delta, except the last flight is operated by KLM. Thanks!

     

    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You don't actually have to change terminals. 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. On your way to Amsterdam, you will arrive in Atlanta, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate. For both connections you have enough time.

    Hi. I'm arriving 14 October on VS103 and taking DL 2396.

     

    What time do you arrive and depart?

     

    Hi. VS103 arrives 13:55. DL2396 departs 15:35.

     

    That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will arrive, 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 concourse.

    I am flying from Houston Hobby and arrive at Terminal S, I then am catching a connecting Virgin Atlantic flight 1 hour and 10 minutes later to Manchester from I terminal. Will I make my flight? Cheers

     

    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 depart. You have enough time if the flight from Houston is on-time.

    That should be plenty of time with Global Entry.

     

  • 41 minute layover flying ATL - LHR

    I have a 41 minute layover flying from Fort Myers to London, my flight from RSW to ATL is with Delta, but my flight from ATL is with Virgin. Will I have to recheck my bags? Is that enough time to connect to my flight? Feels incredibly close. Thank you.

     

    No, you do not have to do anything with your bags. You just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart and board your flight. It is possible, but it obviously leaves no time to spare if the flight from Fort Myers is delayed.

    is there any way to know arr and dep gate ahead of time? flying delta

     

    You won't know until the day of the flight, but it doesn't matter much, the Plane Train connects all gates inside security and you can get from any gate to any gate in about 15 minutes.

    Hi, I'm traveling to Cartagena in Colombia from Montreal Canada with a layover in Atlanta. All flights are with Delta. Will I have to pass security again or simply take the train between gates? I have a 40min layover, will that be enough?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You do not have to go through security. You should have enough time.

     

    Thanks!

     

  • DUB - ATL - LAX

    Hi, I'm flying from Dublin to LAX with a connection of 2h30m in ATL. Will I have to recheck my bags and go through security/US customs again or can I go straight to the departure gate for my next flight? I'm flying with Air France, all flights under the same reservation. Thanks.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse and board your flight. Both flights will be operated by Delta, so check in with Delta in Dublin, not Air France.

     

    Perfect, thank you!
