  • Wondering on time for connecting flight
    Jan 18, 2015

    I will be flying in from DSM to ATL and have a connecting flight to catch to Providenciales, TC. I have a 40 min layover between my flights. Will that be enough time to go from arriving domestic flight to departing international flight? I have taken a look the gates for these flights today and it shows I will be coming into gate A9 and have to get over to gate F9. Also will I have to ride the train system to get to my connecting flight? Thank you

     

    The exact gates change every day. Yes, you will probably have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. You will depart from the E or F concourse. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

    Thank you

    Hi everyone, I could be flying from Montego Bay to Zurich Switzerland in August.I have 1h46min to catch the intercontinental to ZRH in Atlanta. Is this enough time and will my suitcase fly dfirectly to ZRH or do I have to claim it in ATL and check again. Do I have to go through security in ATL. Thanks in advance

     

    Upon arrival in Atlanta, 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 to your departure gate. You will barely have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

    ok thanks, so I will forget this idea, thanks a lot

    Yes, in Atlanta you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.

    I will be travelling with Delta from Bermuda, through Atlanta and on to New Orleans. I can book a connecting flight with only a 48 minute layover in ATL. Is this enough time to connect? I am not checking any luggage.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Bermuda so 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.

    We are flying Orlando to Atlanta then on to Memphis with 1 hour stayover with Delta. Will this be enough time to connect flights and also where will I disembark from the Orlando flight and where will I catch the Memphis flight. how long will it take us to reach the connecting flight gate. Is there enough time to do this in 1 hour. We are only taking Hand luggage. Thank you

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You won't know your exact gates until the day of your flight.

     

    Thank you ZAP (apologies for mis-spelling) appreciate your help. Do I then need to go through Customs and Border Procedures or will we stay in the same area On our tickets it states we arrive Atlanta at Terminal S and re-board for Memphis at Terminal S

     

    Orlando, Memphis, and Atlanta are all located in the United States. You do not have to go through customs or border procedures when flying domestically. Atlanta has numerous concourses, they are all connected inside security by the Plane Train. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    These posts have been really helpful. I'm travelling from Key West to London Heathrow with a transfer in Atlanta. Terminal S to terminal I according to the itinerary - Delta/Virgin. Will 40 minutes be enough and will luggage transfer automatically? Seems a bit tight to me!

     

    Yes, luggage will transfer automatically. All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart. It is tight but it is enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    You will likely arrive in A, B, or C and depart from E or F. All concourses are connected inside security by the Plane Train.

     

  • Flying from Chi to Freeport Bahamas thru Atanta

    We are flying Delta from Chicago ORD to ATL and have only 55 min to catch fly to Freeport Bahamas ( Delta Connections), is this enough time , do we have to go thru security ? , then we are coming back from Bahamas and have about the same time to get in the plane to Chicago , again is it enough time and do we have to go thru security then?

     

    All you have to do both times is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, no security needed. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. On your return you will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Freeport.

    Coming into Atlanta from London on BA. Transferring to Delta flight to go to Charleston. I will not be able to check-in online for Delta flight before I leave London. Can I check in with Delta at F and then drop off baggage there?

     

    No, since you are on a domestic flight you will have to take the shuttle to the domestic terminal to check your baggage with Delta.

     

    Thanks for the quick response. How much time should I allow from landing to getting the domestic flight

     

    At least 2 hours, preferably 2.5

    Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse.

    What terminal does Delta normally use when flying from Atlanta straight to Montego bay. Is it the international terminal or other. Please advise, thank you

     

    If you hold an Atlanta-Montego Bay ticket you should check in in the International Terminal.

    I leave from Fort Lauderdale to Atlanta, and then have two hours to catch my connecting flight to London. All with Virgin Atlantic and booked as one booking. Do I need to collect my bags or will it be automatically passed to my London bound flight? Are the terminals far to walk?

     

    You do not have to claim your bags. Your flight to Atlanta will be operated by Delta. All concourses are connected inside security by the Plane Train. You only have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to Concourse E or F where you will depart.

    Arriving Terminal E from CDG. Departing from Terminal S. What is connection time and route/

     

    E is not a terminal, it is a concourse. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security then take the Plane Train to your departure concourse. You don't actually have to go to "Terminal S".

    Hi I am flying into atl from jnb and according to the flights i land at terminal f02, and need to go through customs, collect baggage and then go to terminal s for a flight to dfw, i cant find terminal s on a airort ma, wher and how do i go/procced ?

     

    F is not a terminal, it is a concourse. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security then take the Plane Train to your departure concourse. You don't actually have to go to "Terminal S". You won't know your departure gate/concourse until the day of your flight.
