We have a connecting flight with a 49 minute layover in Atlanta prior to our flight to London. How do you recommend we get from Terminal S to Terminal I? The Flights are Delta 80 landing in Atlanta and Delta 28 to London. Thanks!
You don't actually have to change terminals. You just take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart. You have enough time.
Hi- My family is traveling on Delta from Ord to ATL where we have a 43-minute layover to catch our international Delta flight to SXM (the flights were purchased together). If the first flight is on-time, will we make it? I'm hoping our luggage will be transferred for us and we won't have to go through security to make the connection. Is this accurate and do you have any time saving suggestions? Thank you so much- we can use all the advice we can get!!! This is making me super nervous- lol.
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. Correct, you don't have to do anything with your bags or go through security in Atlanta on the way to St. Maarten.
Thank you for your reply! That makes me feel much less anxious.

Take care,
Hi I arrive on Sunday at 20.39 to Atlanta from New Orleans my connecting flight to London is scheduled to leave at 21.33 from Atlanta, leaving me 54 mins - is this enough time?
Also will I need to collect and recheck my bags?

That is enough time. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse. You don't have to do anything with your bags.

I arrive into atland on Sunday from New Orleans at 20.39 my connecting flight to London is at 21.33 both with delta. Leaving me 54 mins between connections.
Today I missed my connecting flight from JFK to New Orleans due to delays at security and had to pay 75 dollars for a new flight.

Will I have enough time between my New Orleans and Atlanta flight to London?? Also will I have to reclaim my bag and do the drop off again?

You won't have to do anything with your bags in Atlanta. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate on the Plane Train.

Mother & toddler travelling from London to Louisville (SDF) via Atlanta.Will arrive at international terminal and then next flight is from Terminal S. After immigration & custom
1. How to get to Domestic Term-South (connecting flight)

2. Is there any recheck baggage counter near/next to customs where luggages can be checked in again to avoid carrying luggage through plain train to south terminal?

3. Any facility that can be availed to avoid carrying luggage ? except for wheel chair assistance
After you clear customs you will re-check your bag at the re-check desk right after clearing customs, then go through security and take the Plane Train directly to your departure concourse, no need to actually go to the S Terminal.
I'm traveling from Santiago, Chile (SCL) on August 11th to LAX. I have a connection in ATL. According to my itinerary, I have 1h 52m layover between my international flight from SCL and my domestic flight to LAX. Is that enough time to get through customs, claim and recheck my luggage and a go through security? I'm flying Delta and with a J1 visa. Thanks in advance.
Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
We have 1 hr 42 minute layover. Coming from Cancun to catch connection to Cincinnati early on a Sunday morning. Is this enough time?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
17-yr old has a 90-minute layover between arriving from Paris and boarding domestic flight to Norfolk in South Terminal. Is this enough time to get through customs/immigration, claim and recheck bags, and go through security in South Terminal?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. She will arrive in Concourse E or F, go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through security, re-check her bags at the re-check desk, then take the Plane Train directly to her departure concourse. She doesn't actually have to go to the South Terminal.
Good to know, thanks. Her ticket says "south terminal" as the point of departure for Norfolk flight, but I am not familiar with the ATL airport so wasn't sure where everything was in relation to each other. Is the "re-check desk" the same as checking in for anyone just going from ATL to domestic locations or is there actually a different place for international inbound travelers making domestic connections?
We are scheduled in Sept to fly Delta from MCO to ATL and connect to Delta from ATL to AMS. My wife is disabled and we have scheduled assistance between flights. However just noticed that the layover is only 40mins. Will assistance get us there on time?
They'll do their best.
I have a 61 minute layover, arriving on Delta Boeing-757 (Terminal A, I assume?) and connecting to Virgin. is this enough time? How long does the tram take from Terminal A to F? If not Terminal A, where does Hartsfield generally park their 757s?
You could arrive at T, A or B. The Plane Train takes less than 15 minutes to get to F. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Thank you!
