    Hi, we are travelling from amsterdam changing planes at atlanta then carrying on to orlando all booked on KLM operated by Delta we only have one and half hours to make the connection is this enough time ? we were told our cases would be transferred right through to Orlando but reading other comments i am now not so sure ?

     

    In Atlanta 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 re-check desk, then go through security and take the plane train to your departure concourse and gate. You have just enough if everything goes smoothly, but Delta has hourly flights from Atlanta to Orlando if you miss your connection.

     

    thank you for taking the time to respond :) you have been a great help

    I'm flying in with children to atl from nc than reloading to Cancun Mexico. My questions all flights are delta are we going to have to transport our luggage at any point going or returning thru terminals? Thanks

     

    You should be fine! I am from Atlanta, so I am not sure about the return connection. Going you will just transfer to your new flight and your bags will go on to Cancun. When you return, you will go back through security, customs then possibly (this is the part I don't recall) get your bags and recheck them. The recheck place is right there, so you won't be lugging them throughout the airport. Have fun! We are heading to Cancun in April with our 2 children. We splurged for global entry and it has been wonderful!

     

    Yes, on your way to Cancun you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. On your way back you will 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 gate.

    I am arriving from Heathrow at 4.05pm on July 2nd and have a connecting fight to Kansas City departing at 5.45pm. Is 1hour 40 minutes enough time?

     

    That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    What's the minimum connection time needed between flights - assuming the gates are far apart?

     

    Assuming the first flight is domestic, I would recommend no less than 45 minutes.

    Flying in from the Bahamas to ATL then onto Uk. Do I have to reclaim bags or do they go straight through? Looks like 2 hour between flights

     

    Where in the Bahamas are you coming from? If you are coming from Freeport or Nassau you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Freeport or Nassau. If you are coming from Georgetown or Marsh Harbour then you will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs. Either way you should have enough time.

    Travelling Louisville - Atlanta - Johannesburg on Delta Arrive 18:30, Depart 20:29. Do I need to collect luggage and clear security in Atlanta? Is there enough time to get from Terminal I to S

     

    You don't have to change terminals. All you have to do on your way to Johannesburg in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in concourse E or F. The plane train connects all concourses inside security. You have plenty of time.

    Hi, I arrive from DFW to ATL at 4:38pm with Delta, and then fly to London Heathrow with Virgin which leaves at 5:45pm. Is the 1hr7min layover enough time? And will i have to collect baggage etc? It was all booked as one booking

     

    No you don't have to do anything with your baggage. You just have to take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. You have enough time.

    Arriving from Allentown, delta flight and must connect for an international flight to Roatan, also delta, all same ticket. I have only a 1 hr layover. Will I make my connecting flight and can you navigate me.

     

    All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse (E or F) and board your flight to Roatan.

    I have a customer who has been booked on a Delta/Virgin codes share they are arriving ATL on the VS flight at 1510hrs and departing for FLL on the Delta flight at 1900hrs will they have to collect their luggage and check in again with it Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. They will arrive in concourse E/F, go through US Immigration, claim their bags, go through US Customs, re-check their bags immediately after at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the plane train to their departure concourse.

    We are flying from DTW (Detroit) to ALT (Atlanta) to EYW (Key West. Our connecting flight has a 36 min layover. Is this doable in ATL?

     

    It's doable but it leaves no time to spare if the first flight is delayed at all.

    My trip to Europe originates in Savannah to TL and then I change planes to fly to Paris. Can I just check my bags once in Savannah or do I have to retrieve them in Atlanta and go through International Check In again?

     

    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 concourse E or F where you will depart.

    I'm flying from Detroit to layover in Atlanta. We have a 45 min layover before connecting a international flight to Madrid. Flying delta, will I have to claim my baggage and check back in before flying international? Tickets was booked as one round trip for two.

     

    No, you don't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E/F where you will depart.

     

    Thank you so much for your help.

    Looking at a flight from Toronto to Atlanta to San Juan. Says arrives at Terminal 1 and departs Terminal S. Is one hour enough time and how far apart are the terminals. Can't find "Terminal S" on the airport terminal map. Thanks.

     

    You don't actually have to change terminals. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. It connects all concourses inside security.

    Flight to Charlotte, NC from Milwaukee, WI going thru ATL - how much time is necessary between flights to catch next one out?

     

    30 minutes is possible but I wouldn't try it myself. 45 minutes is solidly doable. An hour is comfortable.

     

  • 1h52m layover (DUS > ATL > DAL)

    We will be flying from Dusseldorf to ATL and have a 1h52m layover for our flight to DAL. I know the procedure of clearing US Immigration, claiming our bags, clear US Customs, dropping bags and clearing security. I just wonder if this is enough time. Also, where exactly do we claim our luggage? I see two different luggage claim spots on the maps (one is called international and the other one F). Thanks for the help.

     

    You should have enough time. Just follow the signs to the correct baggage claim. It will be right after you clear immigration.
