  • 55 minutes between connecting flights
    Jul 12, 2015
    Does 55 min. give me enough time to get from terminal S to terminal I? Its a flight from New Orleans to Atl to Buenos Aires (Argentina).


    You don't actually have to change terminals. You just have to take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. You should have plenty of time if your first flight is on-time.


    do you furnish wheelchairs for people that need help getting to the plane?

    My first time flying out of ATL to SRQ. What's the easiest way to navigate the airport. Flying Delta.


    Just follow the overhead signs. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. It's a big airport but the layout is very simple.

    I am flying from ATL to London Gatwick with a layover at MCO with Delta. Do I go through domestic or International? Also, am I allowed to pack my full sized toiletry items in my checked bag? Thank you.


    Also, when arriving at MCO will I have to claim and recheck my bag or is it switched over to my next flight with Virgin?


    You can go to either, but I would say go to Domestic as your flight to Orlando will leave from that side. Assuming you purchased your tickets on one reservation, your bags will automatically be transferred in Orlando.


  • Flying in from London

    We are arriving from London at 2.40pm connecting with a flight to New Orleans scheduled to take off at 3.55. Will we have enough time to clear immigration, collect our baggage and make the flight?


    that is a good 15 minutes below the recommended time for that connection.


  • which terminal?

    I am flying out of Omaha, landing in Atlanta and have a 45min layover then getting on a Delta flight to Belize. Is this layover enough time??


    That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. All you have to to do is take the plane train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse, E or F.

    I will be arriving ATL from YYZ at 8.47am With Delta to catch the next Delta flight at 10.35am to SXM. Will I arrive and depart from same terminal? Do I need to clear security and is the layover enough to avail this flight?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. Both gates should be in the E or F concourses, which are connected. You do not have to go through security. You have plenty of time.


  • 1.50 connection time - enough?!

    I am arrivig into Atlanta on an international flight and leaving on a domestic flight less than 2 hours later. I have checked luggage and will need to collect in and recheck it apparently i.e. go through bag check and securty all over again (arg!). Will I have time, assuming my first flight arrives on time?


    Yes, that should be enough time. Assuming you purchased your tickets together you can re-check your bags immediately after customs at the transfer desk.


  • Do we have enough transfer time?

    Hello, We land with Delta DL81 at 2:55PM from Brussels. Our connecting flight is Delta DL 2545 to Orlando leaving at 4:55PM. We have to clear customs, but do we have to recheck our luggage? and do we have enough time?


    Yes, you will have to claim your luggage, go through Customs, and then re-check it then go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure concourse. You should have enough time.


    Thanx, do we have to recheck if we are flying Witherspoon same airline ?


    I'm assuming "witherspoon" was autocorrect for with the same. Yes, you have to claim your baggage in order to go through US Customs, regardless of what airlines you are flying. There will be a re-check desk right after you exit customs.


  • Is 23 hours of transit enough time to catch the flight for Florida?

    I am traveling for the first time in USA from Europe. And I will be at ATL airport at 3:38 pm and depart at 5:42 pm. Do I have sufficient time to make all the first immigrants things and finf my baggage, make find the check in????


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in concourse E/F, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US CUstoms, re-check your bags at the transfer desk immediately after, then go through security and take the plane train to your departure concourse.


  • Plane change - Southwest
    Feb 16, 2015
    Coming from Boston to Atlanta on Southwest and then leaving on Southwest to Tampa. Will I be staying in same concourse? Looks like Southwest uses Concourses C and D. Have 45 minutes if flight from Boston is on time. Will I make it if I have to change between concourses?


    All domestic Southwest flights are in Concourse C. You have enough time.


  • Check in Domestic or International Terminal
    Feb 15, 2015
    Departing from ATL airport to Cabo San Lucas, however have a connection in Dallas Fort Worth to Cabo. Do I check in at ATL Domestic or International terminal for my flight?


    Are you flying American Airlines? If so you have to check in in the Domestic Terminal, American does not have a counter in the International Terminal.


  • 1hr 15mins Domestic Connection
    Feb 9, 2015
    I'm not worried about my connection on my way to my destination but coming back I only have an hour and 15 minutes in ATL, and my seats are in towards the back on both of those flights (Row 34 on a 757-200 and Row 31 on an MD88) should I make my connection even if I possibly got to go from Concourse A to Concourse E?


    That should be enough time. You won't have to go from A to E - E is only used for international departures. The plane train connects all concourses inside security.


    Feb 9, 2015
    We have a 2hr 43min layover between Atlanta- New Orleans will this be enough to clear customs & immigration whilst collecting and rechecking baggage - any help would be appreciated. Thanks


    Yes, that will be enough time.


  • 40 mn connection time
    Feb 3, 2015
    we arrive from orlando with flght Af2898 : 18:30 Orlando, Orlando - 20:04 Atlanta, Hartsfield Jackson and 40mn later we have our flight for Paris AF 689 , is 40 mn coneection enough to catch our flight???


    First, please note that your first flight will be operated by Delta Air Lines. Yes that is barely enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will arrive at concourse T, A, B, or C and need to take the Plane Train to concourse E or F. All you have to do is walk to and take the train and then walk to your departure gate.
