    Hi everyone I'm travelling to Knoxville TN from London Heathrow with Virgin/Delta which involves a change of flight at Atlanta. As an international passenger with hold luggage, is an hour long enough between the Virgin Atlantic flight landing and the Delta flight leaving for me to transfer?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the Plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart.

     

    Thanks ZAP - very helpful - do you know whether or not I need to collect my hold luggage during the transfer, or if this is done automatically for me at Atlanta? Both there and on the way back to London?

     

    Also I'm aware I will need to go through security as a non-US citizen - how bad a delay does security add at ATL as part of that hour layover???

     

    You will not have to go through any special security in Atlanta on your way to London. I don't know where you heard that but it's not true. You also don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta on your way to London.

     

    Sorry I misread and thought you were just talking about the trip from Knoxville to London, on the way from London to Knoxville, in Atlanta, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the plane train to your departure gate.

     

    Also, an Hour is not enough time for an International to Domestic connection in Atlanta. The realistic minimum is 2 hours.

    I fly into ATL from Canada (YUL) at 9:16 on Delta and have a connecting flight at 10:11pm (55 minutes)in South Terminal.Is that enough time?

     

    You don't actually have to change terminals. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse and board your flight.

     

    Thanks

     

    Can we check our baggage all the way thru our connection flight or do we have to take it off and take it to the connection flight?

     

    You don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta.

    I booked a cheap tickets on Expedia and I didn't get the itinerary until after I paid for the tickets. I am flying Delta to Atlanta and only have 41 minutes till my flight departs at the international airport for Rome. Is this enough time???

     

    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time, you just take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to Concourse E or F where you depart. Obviously it leaves no time to spare if the first flight is delayed.

    My friend is coming to visit me in the Middle East. She has a layover of 2hrs once she arrives to Hartfield. Is this enough time to clear customs and make her connecting flight to the Netherlands(KLM)?

     

    She is flying from San Jose Costa Rica to ATL for a connecting flight. I am sure that she has to clear immigration/customs

     

    2 Hours is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    50 minute layover (not include disembarking) from what looks like C to E terminal. Should I look at trying to secure earlier flight out of SEA or will this be enough time. 1 passenger. Thank you very much

     

    C and E are concourses, not terminals. You have enough time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

     

  • TERMINAL C (FRONTIER) GATE N TO BAGGAGE CLAIM AREA = HOW LONG ?

    WHAT IS THE AMOUNT OF TIME TO ALLOW?

     

    You arrive in concourse D and will have to go to the North Side domestic baggage claim. It will take you about 10-15 minutes to get to the baggage claim.

    I arrive at the South Terminal at 9.27 am from Chicago and departs at 11.05 am from the North Terminal to Miami do I have sufficient time?

     

    You don't actually have to change terminals if you don't have checked bags, you can go straight from your arrival gate to your departure gate if you check in online for your second flight. However, if you do have checked bags you will have to claim them in the South side of the domestic terminal, take them to the second airline on the north side, re-check them, and go through security, which would be difficult to do in that time-frame. What airlines are you flying?

    Flying Virgin (VS109) out of MAN arriving into ATL at 14.45. Connecting Delta flight (DL2433) leaves for SFO at 16.25. Will 1.40hr connection time be sufficient? I would ideally like to have checked luggage, and will be able to use APC. Thanks.

     

    That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Flying from YYZ to MSY with a 1h layover in ATL. Is that enough time to clear customs (if I need to) and transfer planes? Flying carry on. Thanks!

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. 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. You have enough time.

     

    Thank you!

    Going to the Caribbean. Arrive it Atlanta with 1 hour layover. Changing from a Delta domestic to a Delta international flight with a checked bag. Is 1 hour enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time.

    Hi we will be flying from Aruba and connecting through Atlanta to fly back to the UK, can we clear passport control in Aruba for the US connection if we are not US citizens? Thanks

     

    Yes, everyone pre-clears US Immigration and Customs in Aruba.

    Sept 16th, MSY to ATL (VS5238) then ATL to LHR (VS4010). Both flights operated by Delta. Approx 50 minutes to make the connection flight. Is this possible?

     

    Yes, that is possible. All you have to do is go from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart on the Plane Train.

    Hi, I'm flying with Virgin Atlantic from Manchster, UK landing in ATL at 15:10 and I need to catch a flight to PDX at 16:46, is this possible? My second flight is operated by Delta but it was all one booking. This is my first time flying so far on my own and i'm really worried I wont make my flight!

     

    It's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.

     

  • International to Domestic Terminals Collecting Baggage

    I have a virgin flight from London to ATL that lands at 1:55PM into T4 and then I have a Delta flight (booked separately) from TS going to Austin at 4:22PM. Do I have enough time to go through immigration, collect my checked bag and get to the Domestic terminal to check into my delta flight?

     

    Atlanta does not have a Terminal 4. You will arrive in the E/F Gates and if your bags are tagged through to your final destination, take the shuttle to the Delta side of the Domestic Terminal, re-check your bag, and go through security. If you aren't able to get your bags tagged through this will be quite difficult.
