  • Connection to Aruba
    Apr 6, 2015
    Hello. I am concerned if i will be able to make my connection to Aruba (ETD 10:30am) as i would be arriving in a domestic flight to Atlanta from Fort Lauderdale (ETA 7:34am). Is that enough time to make it? If not, i would have to take a flight to Atlanta the previous night and be in the airport for almost 11 hours :(


    That is PLENTY of time if I'm understanding correctly that you will have nearly 3 hours to make your connection. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Atlanta to Antigua
    Apr 3, 2015
    I arrive in Terminal B and my connecting flight to Antigua is said to be at T07. Do I go to Terminal T or to international flights in Terminal E and F? Do I have to take a train then? I have 1 hour between flights.


    No nonstop flight from Atlanta to Antigua on Delta would depart from Concourse T. What airlines are you flying? Where are you coming from?


    I am coming from DC with the one stop in Atlanta.


    Sorry, forgot to tell you that I am flying with Delta. Flight starts in DC, stops in Atlanta, and we get another Delta flight to Antigua.


    OK, so you will arrive in one of the concourses, T, A, B, or C and you will depart from concourse E or F. You will take the plane train between concourses. 1 hour is enough time. You don't actually have to change "terminals".


  • Cincinatti - ATL - London
    Apr 2, 2015
    I have a flight travelling from Cincinatti to Atlanta with 40mins to connect to a Virgin flight to London. Cincinatti to Atlanta is with Delta. I am a UK citizen. Will 40 mins be enough time to catch the flight to London?


    Yes, it should barely be enough time. you just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to the E or F concourse where your flight to London will depart. It leaves no time to spare for any delays.


  • Worried about making our flight connection
    Mar 30, 2015
    We will be flying into ATL on Delta from Detroit. I searched for days for the perfect flight with enough layover time in ATL. Found it, booked it. Just received an email telling me now instead of almost 2 hours, it is down to 43 minutes. I will have my 84 year old Mother with me, there is no way she can handle running to find our gate. I wish I knew which gates we would be dealing with. Is there anyway to have a cart/shuttle reserved to take us? Thank you


    You can request wheelchair service. Otherwise you can also call Delta and request an earlier flight from Detroit if there is one. There are lots of flights from Detroit to Atlanta on Delta. They should be required to accomodate you as this was an involuntary schedule change.


    You can go to the ATL airport website and enter your airline plus flight number (both found on confirmation email/letter) for your arriving and departing flight and it will tell you which gate.


    Exact gates change daily and the exact gates won't be known until the day of your flight.


  • Connections and Terminal

    I'm travelling through Atlanta Airport to Rome and I have 1 hr layover in Atlanta. I have 2 kids and I'm pregnant. Is this enough time to connect, both flight are on Delta Airlines. And is there any way I can know which terminal I'll be arriving at and which terminal I'm leaving from?? TIA


    where are you flying into Atlanta from? All you have to do in Atlanta is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to the E or F concourse where your flight to Rome will depart. You should have plenty of time if your first flight is on-time.


    We're flying from Jacksonville Airport. Thank you :)


    Then yes, you should have enough time.


  • Enough time for customs and immigration?
    Mar 26, 2015
    I have booked a tour of Italy with Tauck and they made the flight arrangements - Delta 193 and Delta 2558 - from Venice, Italy to Houston with a one hour 36 min layover in Atlanta. I have a concern that this isn't enough time to make it through customs and immigration? there are later flights available into Houston but I plan to work the next day and would like to get into Houston as early as possible and have a two hour drive from Houston. Should I take a chance and hope I can get a later flight if I don't make the connection.


    That should be enough time. However, if the flight arrangements are still changeable you may want to look into flying Venice-Amsterdam-Houston and see if that is available for the same fare.


  • Connection times with 2 separate tickets
    Mar 18, 2015
    I will fly into ATL on a ticket bought by my company and continue my journey onto the west coast with a separate ticket I have purchased myself. In a worst case, I will have to collect my baggage and re check in for the second flight. How much time should I allow for the connection? If I get the second ticket with the same airline (Delta), do you think that they could check me in for both flights even with different tickets so I wouldn't have to collect my luggage?


    they may check your bag through to your final destination but are not obligated to. I would leave at least 2 hours for your connection, assuming both flights are domestic.


  • Phoenix-Atlanta-Paris France
    Mar 17, 2015
    I am flying from Phoenix to Atlanta (Delta) and transfer to Paris (Air France) and layover is only 55 minutes according to the ticket information in AirFrance website. DL and AF are code-shared. Is it enough time to move along the concourse? Do I need to go through security again when entering into international terminal? or are all the concourses connected within one security area requiring no more hassles with TSA?


    You will not have to go through security in Atlanta. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • is it enough time?

  • Domestic flights layover length
    Mar 14, 2015
    I am flying from Phoenix to Atlanta then on to Greensboro. The layover time between my two flights is only 35 minutes. Will these flights be in the same terminal? I am concerned about making my flight to Greensboro. Thanks!


    All gates in Atlanta are connected inside security by the Plane Train. You barely have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Arrive from Barcelona with only 1 hr 20 minutes to connect to Houston
    Mar 11, 2015
    Hello iFly --- We will be returning home to Houston, TX from Barcelona, Spain and have only 1 hour 20 minutes connection. Is this enough time to arrive in the International terminal, go through Immigration, Customs and Security, and get to the domestic departure gates for Houston TX? Thank you in advance.


    That is 10 minutes below the minimum connection time for International to Domestic. You have a chance, but it will be difficult. You can contact your travel agent or Delta and request a later flight or you can try it and if you miss your connection you will be rebooked on the next available flight to Houston.


  • Flying to Hong Kong from Atlanta
    Mar 10, 2015
    Hi, I am flying from Atlanta to Chicago, then connection flight from Chicago to Hong Kong. Do I go to the international terminal or the domestic terminal?


    If you are flying United or American to Chicago, you go to the Domestic Terminal in Atlanta. American and United don't have counters in the International Terminal.

    I am flying to Atlanta arriving from Toronto, terminal I at 9:32. Catching my next flight at 10:55 Terminal S. do I have enough time?


    You do not actually have to change terminals or go to the S. Terminal. You just have to ride the Plane Train from concourse E or F where you will arrive to your departure concourse (T, A, B, or C). You should have plenty of time. You will not have to go through security.


  • Layover
    Mar 9, 2015
    Traveling to Rome to Atlanta then to Sacramento.2 hour 10 min layover in Atlanta is that enough time to get luggage and go through to customs to catch flight to Sacramento. Or will luggage be transfered for us due to all flights on one ticket (all Delta flights).


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in the E/F concourse, 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 take the plane train to your departure concourse and gate.

    Hi, going to orlando from montreal, through atlanta. Arriving in atlanta on delta flight 5207 at 6:08. Then departing atlanta on delta flight 1669 at 6:55. Is that enough time? Do i have to get bagage and recheck in or will that go through on its own?typically, what terminal do i arrive and depart and what is the best way to make sure i c ,atch my flight (i am with a 3 year old)!


    You will preclear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. You don't have to do anything with your baggage, you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.
