I have a connection flight from BHM to ATL w 56 mins. First time in ATL airport so no idea how it works. On the way back I have a layover from LAX to ATL w only 40 minutes, which is cutting it close. The flights are both domestic and flying delta. The planes are Boeing 757 and 737, so maybe the terminals will be close? Will I make it??
Your flights will likely be in concourses T, A, or B. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
I have a flight from charlotte NC to Santo Domingo. My layover is in Atlanta for 52 minutes. Flight was booked through delta. Both flights are delta flights . Will I have enough time to make my connecting flight and will I have to pick up my checked bags and check them again?
No, you won't have to do anything with your bags on the way to Santo Domingo. Just go from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse on the Plane Train. You have enough time.
flying from Milw to Punta Cana thru Atlanta via Delta. 1 hr 25 min between connecting flights. Have never been to this airport. Please help with ideas on how to get from Terminal S upon landing to the international terminal and do we have enough time. On the way back we have a 4 hr layover, so not so concerned and will already know what to do... hopefully. Any advice appreciated.
You have plenty of time .Terminal ABCDEF.Most international flights leaves from Terminal F. It does not matter which Terminal you land in A-D.example d is closer to F andC is close to F . Let's assume worst case scenario that you landed on A Terminal just head straight to flytrain and take fly train to F and that should not take you more than 30 minutes.
Thanks Bmm. Feeling a little better about this now!
Im leaving from Atlanta on Delta to San Jose Costa Rica will I be going to the domestic or international terminal, and if I am leaving my car at the air port how far in advance should I get there before my flight?
You will go to the international terminal.
My flight Delta63 arrived on time from Rome. I have to take flight Delta2025 to Miami. Will I make it on time through immigration so I don't miss my flight??
You have barely enough time. If you miss your connection, Delta has almost hourly flights from Atlanta to Miami.
Hi, I will land in ATL South Terminal at 19.52 from Austin. I need to catch my connecting flight to Reagan Washington at 20.44. Both flights are using Delta, under the same reservation, but have different flight number. So I guess they'll be using different planes.
1. Can I make it in time for the connection?
2. Can I check-in my luggages in Austin and only check them out in Reagan Washington? Or do I need to check out in Atlanta and check them in again?
3. Will I get both boarding passes (Austin - Atlanta and Atlanta - Reagan Washington) when I check in in Austin?
4. Will both gates (arrival and departure) be near? I'm worried of missing my connection to Reagan Washington.
Thank you.
Yes, you can make the connection. You don't need to do anything with your bags in Atlanta. You will be issued both boarding passes when you check in in Austin. All gates in Atlanta are connected inside security by the Plane Train. You can make it.
I fly out of Toronto and have a connection to Santo Domingo in Atlanta. Do I go through US customs in Toronto or in Atlanta? Will my checked bags be sent through or do I have to pick them up in Atlanta?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Atlanta on your way to Santo Domingo is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
My brother is traveling to Atlanta and has a connecting flight from Atlanta to Kansas city.he will arrive Atlanta at 5:30 Pm and has just 1 hour 50minutes for immigration.
1.please let me know how much time it takes for immigration usually.
2.what is the fastest way to go to terminal S .
3. Can he get any assistance from airport staff to make it faster.
4.will b very helpful if we can get some detailed picture of the whole process.
Hoping for a reply.thanks in advance.
He doesn't actually have to change terminals. If both flights are on the same reservation, when you arrive, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and then go through security and take the Plane Train directly to your departure concourse. There is no assistance for people who aren't handicapped. Where is he coming from?
Hi! My flight is going from: Belgrade, Serbia- Brussels, Belgium-Atlanta, GA- Portland, OR.
I am arriving in Atlanta 14:19, and my flight to Portland is at 16:59. Do I have enough time to make a connection? And do I need first to pick up my baggage and later to check them again for the flight to Portland?
Thank you in advance!

What is the fastest method to go from the International Terminal to the Domestic South Terminal? I have very short layover time in ATL to switch from international to domestic flight.
I heard there's Plane Train and Shuttle. Which is more frequent and convenient to take? How long does it take from point to point?
Thank you.
