    hi there im flying from london heathrow to atlanta then on to tampa my transfer time is 1hr30mins is this long enough? any help with gates/security and geting there. many thanks nigel

     

    On your way to Tampa you will arrive in the E or 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. You have barely the minimum allowable connection time.

     

  • Only 70 minutes layover will it be enough

    I will be travelling from Memphis via Atlanta to Amsterdam. Will 70 minutes be enough? Do I need to go trough customs and pick up my luggage and check it in again>

     

    Yes, that is plenty of time. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart.

     

    Thank you for this quick and clear reply

    Hi, I will be travelling from AMS to MCO via ATL with KLM airlines. Arriving in ATL there will be 1:50 left to get from Terminal I to Terminal S, will this be enough time? Honestly, I couldnĀ“t make out the way at the online airport maps... On my way back (MCO-ATL-AMS) there will be 1:21 left to change planes. Will I make it in time? Thank you for responding.

     

    You don't actually have to change Terminals. On your way to Orlando you will arrive in the E or 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. On your return to Amsterdam, in Atlanta, you will just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart. On your way to Orlando you barely have enough time, but Delta has hourly flights from Atlanta to Orlando so you can be rebooked if you miss your connection. On your way back to Amsterdam you should have plenty of time.

     

  • Layover question

    All domestic flights in/out of Atl with 51 minute layover. All indications are I will probably be going from Concourse b to Concourse c, enough time? What is the time difference between using the Plane Train vs the Walkway?

     

    Definitely take the Plane Train. It should take you somewhere between 5 and 15 minutes for your connection.

    Delta have changed their lay over time. I now arrive from Miami to Atlanta airport at 6:28pm and have to connect with another Delta airline at 7:05pm - both arriving and departing from terminal S. Will I make the connection?

     

    It is enough time if your flight from Miami is on-time. All gates are connected inside security by the Plane Train.

    Hi, my daughter will arrive form La Guardia to Atlanta and she'll only have 1 hour 40 minutes to connect to her other flight (Atalnta - Gainesville FL). Can she make it?? It's her first time alone in a big airport and she doesn't speak english well. Thank you

    Hi, I have a flight with Delta from Pittsburgh to Munich, via Atlanta with layover time 40 min. Is it enough time from domestic flight to inter national flight? I have Indonesia passport btw, and for that flight, do I pass through immigration in Pittsburgh or Atlanta?

     

    You do not go through US Immigration when leaving the US. You will go through Schengen immigration when you get to Munich. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Concourse E or F, likely using the Plane Train. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time but there's no time to spare if it is delayed.

    I am flying with Delta from Amsterdam to Savannah with a transfer in Atlanta. Will 2 hours be enough as a transfer time??? I will travel with carry on only. On my way back I only have 40 min or should I get a flight with a 1,30 hours transfertime

     

    Yes, 2 hours should be enough time. 40 minutes is possible on the way back but I would personally go with the 90 minutes.

     

  • Meeting a savy arriving teen domestic traveler

    I have two very smart, young teens that are arriving from the west coast. Without getting a gate pass, where is the best place to meet them? They have carry-on baggage and will be able to follow the signs to the baggage claim area or main terminal. Any advice on best location to meet. I'll be at the airport about an hour before they arrive.

     

    In the domestic terminal there's a main escalator that every domestic arriving passenger comes up when arriving (except those who arrive in concourse T). You can wait there (there's a metal bar there that you're supposed to stand behind).

    Flying from San Jose Costa Rica connecting in ATL (1h:51min) to a domestic flight. Is this enough time to clear costumes and re check bags?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in the E or F gates, 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.

    I have a 12 yr old flying solo from LAX to ATL tomorrow on Southwest Airlines. What terminal will she arrive at? She'll have to navigate herself to the the plane train. I want to give her as much information as possible. I wish I could meet her at the gate but she is not flying as a UM.

     

    Southwest domestic flights arrive in concourse C and she should head to the domestic terminal. Teach her the sign for Baggage claim (a suitcase) and to follow that.

    Hi, I'm flyng from DFW to Atl to Rome, is 1 hour enough time to move from B7 to E12

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time if the first flight is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.

    I'm arriving in ATL from SRQ on Delta and will need to transit to Korean Air. Will I need to pick up my bags in the domestic terminal or can I transfer them all the way to Korea when I check in at SRQ?

     

    If both tickets were purchased on the same reservation then your bags will be checked through to Korean. All you have to do in Atlanta is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart.

    Hello! We are traveling from Chicago to Saint Lucia with a 50 minute layover in Atlanta. We will have carry-on bags and I am hoping we will have enough time!!! Will we have to go thru security again or will we just be able to go from our arrival gate to our departure gate?

     

    You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all gates inside security.
