Booked a flight with Delta from Saskatoon, Canada to Queretaro, Mexico with stops at Minneapolis & Atlanta. In Minneapolis will have to get checked luggage & clear customs, in Atlanta I land at Terminal S & have 1 hr 50 min before departing from Terminal I ( flight operated by Aeromexico Connect), will I have to get my checked luggage again or will it automatically be transferred to my connecting flight? How do you get from Terminal S to Terminal I & approximately how long does it take?
Appreciate any information you can provide
Yes, in Minneapolis you will 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 to your departure gate. In Atlanta all you have to do is go from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse on the Plane Train. You have plenty of time.

Yes, that is enough time. Do you have any particular questions?
What Terminal is Southwest Airlines?
You check in in the Domestic Terminal North Side and then their gates are in Concourse C.
Arriving from Paris at terminal I flight DL 83 , connecting with flight DL 1133 to Los Angeles departing from terminal S how much time needed between terminals?
You don't actually change terminals. You arrive in concourse E or F, 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 to your departure concourse. I recommend at least 2 hours.
I am flying on a Saturday from Yyz in Toronto to ATL arriving at Terminal I and connecting to ECP Florida from terminal S with only 49 min. Is it possible to make this connection, I am very worried about the short time and such a large airport with the change in terminals, help!!
Yes, you will have enough time for the connection since you are doing Custom and Immigration at Toronto Pearson International Airport. You flight will land as domestic and your luggages will go directly to your final destination. To change concourse, you just need to take the internal train at ATL which will take you 5 min at most. No need to do TSA again.
Arriving in ATL on a delta flight; leaving on a southwest flight. What is the best way to get from delta's terminal to southwest's terminal? Will I have to go through security again?
Do you have checked bags or not? Is the Delta flight International or Domestic? I can't answer your question without that information.
I will have checked bags. It is a domestic flight. Thanks
Then you will need to take the Plane Train to the main terminal, claim your bag on the South side of it, then bring it over to the North side and re-check it with Southwest, then go through security and take the Plane Train to your departure gate in Concourse C.
Saturday morning January 20th we are flying from West Palm Beach to Detroit with a stop at Atlanta. Does anyone know which terminal/gate the flight from West Palm arriving at 10:55am and which terminal/gate the departing flight is for Detroit at 11:50? The flight times seem really close.
You gates will be available on Delta.com or the Delta app tomorrow. All gates are connected inside security by the Plane Train. Your gates will likely be in concourses T, A, or B. You have enough time.
My wife and I are travelling to St Lucia, with a stop in Atlanta. We change planes going from Concourse B to E. B-3 to E-34. The problem is, if the flight is on time, we only have 50 min. to make the connection and we are both in our 60's. is it enough time?
Yes, that is enough time if the flight is on-time. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
Thanks Zap, I worry about that too.
My 83year old non-English speaking French neighbour is travelling alone from Paris to New Orleans, changing to her Delta connecting flight at Atlanta. Are there any services that could help through passport control to her next flight? If so is there a cost? My thanks!
There is no such service. Lots of French speaking people transit Atlanta, so she shouldn't have much difficulty.
Given the distance from international arrivals to domestic terminal south departure, is there a separate lane through passport/customs for transit passengers? (Still asking for 83 year old non English speaking lady travelling alone)
She doesn't actually go to the domestic terminal. After clearing customs and security in the international terminal she goes straight to her departure concourse and gate on the plane train. 80-90% of arriving passengers are transit passengers, so there is no separate line.
Hi I'm looking to book a flight with virgin from MCO to Manchester(UK) via ATL
This domestic flight is operated by delta but it's saying 41min connection time. Is that enough time to transfer flights for ourselves and our checked bagged?
Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You just take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure gate in Concourse E or F.
