    arriving from heathrow 16.20 to atlanta then leaving 17.50 to memphis how on earth will we cope and do we have time to clear customs , collect bags etc. we are OAPs !

     

    That is enough time if everything goes smoothly. If you miss your connection, Delta will have at least four other flights to Memphis that afternoon/evening.

    Can I preclear U S customs in Bahamas to arrive home in Atlanta?

     

    Yes, if you are flying from Nassau or Freeport you WILL. If you are coming from Marsh Harbour or Georgetown you will go through US Immigration and Customs in Atlanta.

    Hi , I'm travelling from Monterrey, Mexico on Delta Airlines , arriving iin ATL at terminal I on 29th at 12.03pm , my connecting flight to Dallas leaves at 1.50 pm .Reservation is on same flight ticket. Query : When I land in Atlanta , Would I need to pass through immigration , collect bags , pass through customs and recheck-in the bag to Dallas ? Do I have enough time for my connection ? What is terminal I and terminal S ? How do i transfer between the terminals I to S ? thanks

     

    You will arrive in Concourse E or F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure concourse on the Plane Train. You don't actually have to go to Terminal S. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

    Much appreciated

    I will be traveling from Kingston, Jamaica to New York through ATL and I wanted to know the arriving concourse and the departing concourse so I can plan activities. 8hr layover. What do I need to know?

     

    You will arrive in Concourse E or F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security and then take the plane train to your departure concourse. You could depart from concourse T, A, or B.

     

    Thank You!

     

  • Am I able to reserve an electric cart in advance?

    my elderly parents are flying into ATL airport and my dad has a hurt knee/knee brace. would I be able to reserve an electric cart to assist in taking them from the gate to baggage claim in any way? Who do I call?

     

    Electric aren't a thing in Atlanta because you have to go through a tunnel with a train to get between concourses and to the terminal, and electric carts can't go on that train. You have to request wheelchair service by calling his airline.

    How do I get assistance moving a handicap traveler to a connecting flight?

     

    You need to call the airline that the traveler is flying and add a wheelchair request to their reservation.

    where is the best place to meet people coming in international. I arrive 2 hrs earlier than they do, so i can go to concourse E or F. but where should I tell them to meet me???

     

    You could go to the international terminal and exit security and then meet them on the arrivals level of the International Terminal.

    Hello! I am traveling international to New York through Atlanta. I am traveling with my dog, and I am aware I have to go through customs, get my bag, have my dogs' documents checked and then go to my next flight. The layover is two and a half hours, is that enough time for me to take him to the pet relief area outside baggage claim? Thank you!

     

    That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

    Hi, I am traveling to Pittsburgh with a layover in Atlanta of about 2 hours. I'll arrive from an international flight so I understand I'll have to go through immigration and then claim my bags and check in again. Does anyone know how this process is done, will I have to take the shuttle for my domestic flight? Confused with the Atlanta shuttle.

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation you will already be checked in for your flight to Pittsburgh. In Atlanta, 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 enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • 1 hour 7 min layover from Nassau, Connection in Atlanta to Milwaukee

    We are flying back to WI from Nassau Bahamas trip with a connection in Atlanta. All flights are through Delta but we only have 1 hour and 7 min layover in Atlanta to go back to Milwaukee. We are thinking we should try to avoid checking bags because we will have to recheck them in Atlanta and go through customs which would not be enough time. Would you agree? If we don't check bags do you think we could make a 1 hour 7 min layover from Nassau drop off to Milwaukee boarding?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau. If you check bags you won't have to do anything with them in Atlanta. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Hello I am going to travel From Amsterdam Europe to Kingston, Jmaica in December. I have 1:45 to make a plane change. Is it enough? Also What is the procedure I have to take? I need to go through the customs, claim baggage, give baggage away and then again security check? I hope the arrive and the departure will be from the E terminal. I am just transiting the US and the flight should be on one ticket. Thank you.

     

    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 to your departure gate. Both gates will be in E or F. You have just enough time.

    I am flying from Atlanta but have to transit at JFK and continue to Venice, Italy. Can I check my luggage all the way to Venice, Italy or do I have to reclaim and recheck in at JFK. All my flights are made with the same reservation.

     

    On your way to Venice you don't have to do anything with your bags at JFK.

     

    Is 45 min layover enough time to make flight from Atlanta to Las Vegas?

     

    I am flying out of Atlanta to Toronto 7:15pm. What time should I arrive at the airport? Do I clear customs in Atlanta or Toronto? Thanhs.

    We are flying to Tampa from London via Atlanta. How far is the departure terminal from our arrival terminal. We have 1 hr 30 mins to do this, is this enough time ? Will our hold luggage automatically be transferred and do we need to go through security or will this be done at our final destination ? Many thanks.

     

    You will arrive in Concourse E or F, 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 to your departure gate. This is a difficult connection. If you miss your connection, Delta has hourly flights from Atlanta to Tampa. All you will do in Tampa is claim your bags.

     

    Thankyou so much
