Hello there
Please would you let me now what the distance is from Terminal E and F and how long it usually takes to clear immigration and customs from one international flight to another.
Thank you soo very much!
You need at least 2.5 hours between flights, preferably closer to 3.
We are flying from Atlanta to
Greenville/Spartanburg with Southwest. I know we will be at terminal C but was wondering if you know what gate we go to? Thanks
You fly out of Concourse C. You don't find out your exact gate until the day of your flight but they're all near each other.
Hello,

I'll be flying in from PDX on DL 993 at 8:49 PM and heading to Argentina on DL 101 at 10:20 PM on Wednesday the 11th. Do I need to be concerned about that short of a layover at this airport?

Thanks!
That's plenty of time. 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.
I will be landing (hopefully on time) in Atlanta at 5:10 from Chicago/Midway and only have 40 minutes to get to my international flight (DL 14)in the new terminal. Is this enough time or should I be rebooking my flight? I am sixty and can only move so fast. Thank you
It's possible but leaves no time to spare if the first flight is delayed.
we have a flight on 11/22 mco-atl 7:30PM arriving atl 9:04PM connecting to KLM at 10:25PM (1hour 21 minute) is it possible for us to make our connection being an international flight and at least 4 people are on that flight to Amsterdam does klm every hold the flight for a short time... thanks
You have plenty of time. 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.
Zao thanks for the info.... put my mind at rest
Is southwest airlines on the blue side of Hartsfield airport?
Yes, they are on the N side.
We are connecting at ATL with 3 hours between flights. We have 3 small kids (age 1-4). I don't think we have time to go outside of the airport. Any suggestion what to do in the airport? I heard there is a play area for kid in ATL, but i can't find the location in the airport website. thx!
Arrive ATL with Delta from ECP with suitcases and then depart ATL with British Airways. Please let me know the steps in the transfer process? Delta and BA are not partners so will have to physically transfer suitcases. Thank you for any help you can provide.
You will take the Plane Train to the domestic S terminal, claim your bags, then take a shuttle bus to the international Terminal, re-check your bags with British Airways, then go through security and to your departure gate. I recommend at least 2.5 hours for this process.
Thank you very much for the information.
I can't believe I can't find anything on how to get between terminals. One maps shows them disconnected - take a bus? a train? Another map shows them connected - walk? Our daughter's domestic Delta flight says it arrives at terminal E (but everything I read says that's international.) Her connecting flight leaves from termainl B - and some posts say 90 mins is tight, but she only has 45 minutes! So are there walkways? Trams? Buses??? It shouldn't be so difficult to find information. Thanks for any help!!
E and B are concourses not terminals. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security underground. 45 minutes is enough time for a domestic to domestic connection, but it doesn't leave much time to spare.
My apologies for mistyping - yes, I meant 'concourse' - I was trying to get information quickly for our daughter - I should have proofread the post. Thank you for explaining the Plane Train - I thought that was to connect the *terminals* so I didn't know the method of travel between concourses. As it turns out, she *did* make the connecting flight, more efficiently without my help anyway ; )
Delta has rescheduled our flight from PBI to Atlanta. We now have 59 minutes before our flight to Amsterdam departs. Can we make it?
Yes, all you have to do in Atlanta on the way to Amsterdam is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you depart and board your flight.
