Hello, I am flying into ATL from Frankfurt, Germany and have a connecting flight to Lima, Peru. Arrival into ATL is scheduled to be 3:39pm and the departing flight to Lima is 5:50pm. Question, do I need to go through immigration control as though I was staying in Atlanta or is there a special immigration desk air side ?
Yes, you have to go through regular US Immigration, Customs, and Security before boarding your flight to Peru. You should have enough time.
Hello. We are due to land internally into Atlanta from Orlando at circa 5pm. Then depart from Atlanta to Manchester uk at 7:10pm.
What's the best way of getting between gates and is this enough time.
Just take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. You should have plenty of time.
We will be flying into Atlanta from Frankfurt on Lufthansa and then on to Phoenix AZ on an American flight. We have plenty of time (almost 4 hrs), but just wondering what procedure we would follow.... once we go through immigration and customs, will we need to carry our luggage with us to the Domestic terminal and check everything in there or can that be done at the international terminal. Also, is it better to take the Plane Train or the shuttle from International to Domestic terminal. Thank you for your advice!
Yes, you will have to take the shuttle bus with your bags to the Domestic terminal to re-check them with American and go through security.
Thank you!
I would like to book a flight from Duesseldorf via Atlanta to Cancun. Connection time at ATL is 1:36 h. Is this enough?

Thank you
That will be barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. It leaves no time to spare.
We'll arrive domestic from Ft.lauderdale with DELTA/KLM and leave international to Amsterdam with KLM.
Will 1 hour and 10 minutes be enough?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart.
Thank you!
my first flight has been delayed and have a connecting flight in ATL. my delayed flight gets to gate D38 and i have 14 Min until my next one at gate T3. do i have enough time?
That will be pretty difficult if you indeed end up with only 14 minutes and the second flight isn't also delayed.
Hello. My parents are flying to Kabul. They fly out from Atlanta and have a connecting flight in Boston. Then they fly to Istanbul and finally land in Kabul.

My question is do they arrive at the international terminal or domestic in Atlanta? The ticket says Terminal N but I'm not sure which one that is.
Also, do they check their bags in at Atlanta or Boston?
Since their first flight is domestic they use the domestic terminal, specifically the North side (thus the N). They won't see their bags until they get to Kabul if everything is on the same reservation. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
My flight is from Charlotte NC to Orlando FL on August 25 (tomorrow at 6am). I arrive at gate E37 and have a connection flight at B25. Layover is 44 minutes. Will I make it on time?
That is possible. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
Hi, I am flying into Atlanta airport with Virgin Atlantic and have 1 hour 25 minutes until my connecting flight with Delta (to Savannah). I had a friend travel to Atlanta airport recently to fly on to Mexico and she said immigration took over 2 hours. This now has me worried that I will not have time to reach my connecting flight. Any advice/suggestions?
Yes, that is correct. You do NOT have enough time. You need a minimum of 2 hours to make your connection. Contact whoever booked your ticket and tell them that your connection is too short.
I'm connecting in Atlanta and have 47 minutes to get from D16 to A26 (Delta domestic, south terminal) Do you think I have time?
thanks, LS
That is just enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
