Hi, we're flying from Manchester UK to Terminal S Atlanta, then we have 2 hrs 20mins to transfer to a flight from Terminal S to Indianapolis. is 2hrs 20mins enough time on a Saturday afternoon.? thanks
I am flying to Atlanta on Delta terminal S and going to terminal I to fly out to Tokyo. I did not see any of these terminals on the map of the airport. How do I know what the real terminals are and how do I get from one to another? Thank You
You will arrive in Concourse T, A, B, C, or D and depart from concourse E or F. You just have to take the Plane Train (which runs underground) from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse.
I am flying into ATL on a flight that normally comes in in Terminal B. I have a connection that normally leaves from Terminal C. I have about an hour and a half and I do have TSA precheck. Easy enough except one thing. I have to escort a child from Terminal B to relatives who will be picking him up. Is there a specific door I should head for to make this as quick as possible?
B and C are concourses, not Terminals. You will have to take him on the Plane Train to the domestic terminal, and up the escalator to meet the relatives. However, if you go up the escalator you will have to go back through security as you can't go down the escalator. How old is the child? Can he or she manage going up an escalator themselves if you can confirm using your phone that the relatives are waiting for him at the top? If so that would save you a lot of time.
Do you mean that if I stay at the bottom of the escalator I won't have to go through security? If the top of the escalator is visible to me and I can see him meet up with the family, I could stay at the bottom. Is there no curbside pickup at the concourses?
The concourses are just gate areas located in the middle of aircraft apron. They don't have curbs, let alone curbfront pickup. They are connected to the terminals by the Plane Train which runs underground. Yes, I'm pretty sure you can see the top of the escalator from the bottom.
I have a connecting flight Amsterdam-Atlanta-Cancun (AMS-ATL-CUN) and the connection gap at ATL is 1 hour 40 minutes. I do not need to recheck my baggage, but i am wondering if it is enough time to change flights? and also is it enough time for airlines to pass my baggage so it doesn't got lost?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security.
Arriving in ATL on Sat, 4/22 on Delta Flt 2801 at 8:19a and the connecting flight to MCO is Delta Flt 1883 at 8:55. Will I have enough time to make it to the gate with only 36 minutes between flights? I'm traveling with an older person who can't walk very fast. Are the gates close to each other?
You won't know your gates until the day of your flight. It's possible but doesn't leave much time to spare. if you miss your connection, Delta has hourly flights from Atlanta to Orlando that you can be rebooked on.
