    Arrive in ATL 0903, depart to Aruba at 1030. As far as I understand we go through customs in Aruba, is this correct? Do we need to retrieve luggage to take to international?


    There is no US Customs or Immigration when leaving the US. All you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, nothing with your bags.

    hey. was wondering if 3 hours is long enough to get from one flight to another. will be flying from the bahamas to euroupe. thank you


    Yes, that is enough time. If you are flying from Nassau or Freeport you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in the Bahamas.

    Im travelling as a Dutch citizen on the way back from Miami to Atlanta with Delta on a through ticket. In Atlanta I have a layover of 1 hour and 38 minutes until I board my next flight again with Delta to Dusseldorf, Germany. Where do I need to go once i've arrived in Atlanta and will I have enough time?


    All you have to do in Atlanta is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. There is no US customs when leaving the US.

    Delta arrivals experiencing 2-3hour wait for gate due to computer problems. Why does your website report no arrival delays?

    I am flying from New Orleans to Atlanta with Delta,then onto UK with Virgin Atlantic, anyone know the Terminal / gate numbers, and is it easy to do this transfer?


    You will arrive in Concourse T, A, B, or C. You will depart from Concourse F. All you have to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. You don't actually have to change terminals.


  • PENS to ATL to JFK to Milan

    We only have an hour layover in Atlanta. Will this be enough time since this is an international flight?


    Is "PENS" Pensacola? If so that's plenty of time. Flying from Atlanta to New York is not an International flight.


  • Flying my cat to ATL airport on Cargo

    I am flying my cat from London to ATL as declared cargo, since he is flying after us. Any idea where in ATL airport should I collect him from and how is the process to clear him through customs? appreciate any help!


    Ask the cargo agent when you drop the cat off. It would help if you posted what airline you are flying.


  • Rechecking baggage at Delta ticketing desk
    Jan 18, 2017
    I'm arriving on Delta 110 from Buenos Aires at 5:30 am and connecting to Louisville, Kentucky on Delta 2482 at 9:44 am on a multicity ticket, so my bags will not be tagged to SDF, but Atlanta only. After going through immigrations and Customs, I have to go to a Delta ticketing desk to recheck my baggage. Where is the Delta ticketing desk to recheck my baggage and how do I get there after immigrations and Customs? Thanks in advance!


    You can see if the Delta desk after customs can re-tag your bags. If not you will have to take the shuttle to the domestic terminal to have them re-tagged and then go through security there. Regardless, don't let go of your bags until you see an SDF tag go on them. Alternatively, you can ask the agent in BA if they can tag your bags through to SDF, then you can definitely re-check them in the International Terminal.

    Will be flying to Harrisburg, PA from the Bahamas. We will have a 5 hour layover in Atlanta. We have a 1 day pass to Delta Sky Club. Which Sky Club do you recommend for best FREE food and alcoholic drinks? Should we stay in the International one in Concourse F or travel to the domestic departure area? Looking to get the most value for money on our pass. Thanks


    I would stay in the International one.

    We are flying from Cincinnati to ATL and then on to Amsterdam, all booked on same reservation. Once I've checked bags in Cincinnati do I have to pick them up and check in again at International??


    No, all you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart and go to your departure gate and board your flight. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.


  • checking bags for different flight
    Dec 28, 2016
    I am traveling domestically to Atlanta on a delta ticket and have a different ticket on Air France for a flight to Nairobi that will connect through Paris. How do retrieve bags from the first flight and check them on the Air France ticket without going through security?


    You can't claim your bags without going through security. Show your Air France confirmation to the check-in agent at your origin city and they should be able to check your bags through to Nairobi.

    hello, I will arrive next Wednesday at 19:46 in ATL and leaving at 21:25 for Guatemala. Do i have to pass immigration, security ? do i have to pick up my luggage and check in again ? thanks for your assistance


    If your first flight is domestic all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If it is not domestic, where are you flying into Atlanta from?


    thank you. i am flying in from Paris France with AirFrance and leaving Atlanta to Guatemala with Delta Airlines. i will just be in transit.


    Yes you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags at the recheck desk then go through security and to your departure gate.
