We will be flying into ATL from MSP on a delta flight at 8:54 AM. When booking this flight, we had a 1.5 hour layover but they recently switched it to a 51 minute layover for our delta flight to SXM at 9:45 AM. Will this be enough time to make our connection? Is there anything we can do with the airline to ensure we make the connection once we are on the ground?
That is still enough time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart.
Hello, I will be arriving on from Argentina on 12SEP @ 0542... I need to connect to DFW, the flight leaves at 0754... Is that enough time? Both are Delta flights... I've never been to ATL airport so i dont know its layout... I've read about the Plane Train, which is guess will take me from one terminal to the other. Will i have to go through security again? And are those security lines long in ATL? Thank you very much.
Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in the international terminal, 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 directly to your departure concourse.
I am a little apprehensive between the terminology of terminals or concourse We have a delta flight into Atlanta from Orlando which says lands at terminal S We then have a virgin Atlantic out from terminal 1 Does this sound correct or are these concourse?
Those are Terminals but you don't ACTUALLY go to either of those terminals. You will arrive in Concourse T, A, B, or D and depart from Concourse E or F. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. I don't know why Delta insists on printing that information on everyone's itinerary, it confuses more people than it helps.
Hi Hello, I am flying into Tampa to Zagreb Croacia and have to Atlanta one hour connection flight.. How long is transportation from Terminal S to Terminal 1 time?? Next stop is Paris to Zagreb / Delta to AIR FRANCE
All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart and board your flight to Paris. You don't actually have to change terminals. You have enough time.
Flying from Atlanta to Dublin, Ireland on 5 Sept. How long to get thru security before we board? Any special things we need to bdaware of? How does it work?
If you are just starting your trip in Atlanta just get to the International Terminal 2 hours before your flight, check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate. It's just like a domestic flight except that you have to show your passport when you check in and when you board the plane.
First time doing this and we have no idea how it works, also re luggage. Arriving at domestic terminal with Delta from Miami and leaving from international terminal with KLM to Amsterdam. How to get there?
All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart. You don't have to do anything with your baggage in Atlanta on the way to Amsterdam.
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.
