  • Connecting Flight Time - Rusty with ATL
    Jul 1, 2013
    1
    Hi, I'm arriving in ATL and continuing on to CRW. My connection time is 1:08. I think my flight arriving in ATL will be in concourse A, my connection in concourse D. Will I have enough time to make my connection, with Plane Train beig downstairs, etc. I haven't been thru ATL in about 6 months, so I'm a little rusty. Please advise.

     

    Yes, you can use the plane train to get between any two gates in under a half hour.

    I am connecting from 1 southwest flight to another southwest flight and have an hour. Will that be enought if i walk instead of taking the plane train. We land at 10:35 and depart at 11:35.

     

    All Southwest flights not operated by Airtran are on the same concourse, C, so you wouldn't have to take the plane train anyway.

    My daughter is arriving from Chicago (18h30) heading to Johannesburg (19h30). how does she get to Gate E18 inless than 15 minutes?

     

    Well, from the times you posted, she has 60 minutes, not 15. She can take the PlaneTrain from the concourse she will arrive in (likely A, B or C, but possibly T or D) to concourse E. It can be done in less than 20 minutes.

    My daughter and her friend are flying solo for the first time tomorrow. Their flight arrives at ATL gate C7 and connects at D11. What's the simplest way to advise them to travel between gates that can be done in the 45 minute window they have between flights? Thank you, A worried mom

     

    They just take the Plane Train 1 stop from C to D. It's very simple and can be done in that time. Their gates may change before tomorrow, so they should be prepared for that, but the process is still the same, take the plane train between concourses.

     

    My fear is that they will find that confusing or miss their stop. Would it be possible for them to just walk between concourses?

     

    There's a walkway through the same tunnel that the train goes through. However, I think you really underestimate your daughter. It's a very simple system.

     

  • Terminal S to International Terminal

    My flight from West Palm Beach, FL gets into Terminal S at 4:50 pm and I leave for Madird from the international terminal at 5:50 - how do I get to the international terminal? how long should it take? will I have to go through customs etc. again?

     

    You will not arrive in "Terminal S" you will arrive in one of several domestic concourses. You will then just take the plane train from your arrival concourse to Concourse F for your international flight. There will be no customs or security in the international terminal. You'll go through immigration in Madrid.

    Coming to Delta for a flight to PBI West Palm Beach, do I have the person bringing me drop me off at Domestic or direct to Internationnqshgal terminal?

     

    Does the "planetrain" go all the way from T to Concourse F?

     

    Yes, the plane train goes to every concourse, T to F. Since PBI is domestic, get dropped off at the Domestic terminal.

     

  • Intl conx time at ATL F to domestic

    I am returning from Jamaica to Houston with a connection at Atlanta where we will clear US Customs. We only have an hour and 15 minutes due to a schedule change. Is this enough time to get through and make a connection? All on Delta. But there is a much later connection but 4 hour conx if we change to this.

     

    Honestly, it's probably not enough time. I'd request the later flight (which you can get changed to for free due to the schedule change). However, if you stick with your original connection, you can try to make it, then get put on that later flight if you miss it. The risk being if the later flight is full you'll get stuck in Atlanta.

     

    I took your advice & changed to the later conx. Thanks for the help! Better safe than sorry.

     

  • CLEAR CUSTOMS, CLAIM BAGGAGE, ETC.

    HI YOU ALL, I`M FLYING SUNDAY MAY 19 FROM PANAMA, ARRIVING AT THE INTERNATIONAL TERMINAL, I SUPPOSE, AND CONNECTING TO MONTREAL. I HAVE 1:21 BETWEEN ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE TO GO THRU CUSTOMS, CLAIM BAGGAGE, HAND IT OVER FOR CONNECTION. NOT SURE IF I HAVE TO PASS SECURITY CHECK TO TAKE THE OTHER FLIGHT AND IF I WILL HAVE TIME ENOUGH. WHAT DO YOU THINK?

     

    ADDITIONAL INFO: FLYING DELTA ON BOTH LEGS. ARRIVAL TIME IS 1:24 P.M.

     

    Your transfer time at ATL will suffice. After debarkation, passengers walk the corridor towards the escalators taking them to the Arrivals level, where they go through customs & Immigration, then proceed to the baggage claim area which has 7 carousels. (a) Connecting passengers recheck-in their bags by proceeding to the transit area past baggage claim and turning left to baggage recheck counters, then follow signs to Concourse F Plane Train station, which connects all concourses (with gates E, D, C, B, A & T).

    Enough time to get from gate A6 to gate E29 plane scheduled arr atl 9:00 at gate A6 next leaves fron E29 at 9:45 if all on time. Enough time or should I resched?

     

    If your first flight is on-time and you hurry it should barely be enough time. You take the plane train almost its entire length. I wouldn't re-book as long as there are later flights to your destination that day out of ATL.

     

  • 50 min enough to connect A32 to C43

    Is 50 min adequate to connect and do we walk or catch train? First time going thru this airport. Connection is around noon on a Sunday. Thanks!

     

    You take the plane train between concourses. It should take 15-20 minutes to get between those two gates.

    Hi! My parents are flying next week from Warsaw-Paris-Atlanta-Wichita. They have to go through immigration check in Atlanta and then get somehow to domestic terminal. Could someone give me a brief description of what should they look for in terms of directions? They do not speak english and I am afraid they are going to get lost. How do they get to the "Plane Train" ? Any information or maps would be very helpful!

     

    I should mention that they are flying Air France to Atlanta and arriving at Terminal I , they have about 2 hrs to get through immigration, their connecting flight is operated by Delta Air Lines and departs from Terminal S. I bought tickets about a month ago so I am not sure if the flight from Atlanta to Wichita will still be from the Terminal S?

     

    They will go through immigration in the International terminal. Then they just have to re-check their bags with Delta in that terminal, go through security there, and take the Plane Train to the concourse for their Wichita flight. They don't have to actually go to the main Domestic terminal - they can go straight to their concourse.

     

    Where is the Plane Train located? Do they have to take stairs upstairs downstairs? Are there hanging signs "Plane Train"?

     

    The plane train runs underground between all the concourses. It's fairly obvious. They will likely go downstairs at their arriving gate in order to go through immigration.

    have 40 min is this enough time as I can't run

     

    Take the Airtrain to your next departure area. For terminal & gate details,I suggest you open www.ifly.com/atl then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

    I'm flying from newport news to Atlanta then to Dallas. First time flyer and atl airport is use so advice would be great. I arrive at Atlanta terminal S at 847pm and depart terminal S at 10pm. How do I know which concourse, it's not on my itinerary? Also.. Any other tips would be great.

     

    You can get the concourses from Delta.com the day of your flight. All the concourses at ATL are connected by the plane train and it's a very simple connection procedure.

     

    Thanks so much.

    Hi! I have an international flight arriving at 5:50 AM, connecting flight to DTW is 7:25 AM. Will I have enough time to collect bags, clear customs and make my flight?? How far is the domestic terminal from International? I'm a US passport holder...if that helps?

     

    Can you be more specific about where you're connecting and what airline(s) you are flying?

     

  • Domestic South To International Terminal

    we will have 1 hr and 5 min to go from Domestic south terminal Delta Airline to International Terminal. Is it enough time? Which is the shortest way? We will arrive in ATL at 9:00am. This is our first time using ATL airport. Thanks!!

     

    Your domestic flight will arrive at one of the lettered concourses, not the south terminal. You just have to take the plane train from the concourse you come in to to concourse E where your international flight will depart from.

     

    I saw on ATL website. They have terminal F for international. Since we have really short connection time for international flight, we want to plan ahead. Please advice.

     

    Delta uses both E and F for international flights.

     

    I am coming in to ATL from Nassau on 5/27 at 7:30 pm and connecting to a flight to CLT at 8:50 - is this a problem with my connection time?
