I will be be very first time in Atlanta airport My layover is 56minutes flight Delta from Chicago arrives at termina S n next plane Delta to fort myers I also have at terminal S but im not aware about gates utill the very last moment will i manage to get on the next plane only Carey on baggage. Will i have to go through the security check any advices will be much appreciated
No you do not have to go through security. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. the Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You have enough time.
Hi..Im traveling from Baltimore Md to Atl and then on to Milwaukee Wi...My eticket says I'm going to Terminal S but I don't see it on the map. I am flying Delta and have a one hr 20 minute layover in Atl. I wanted to know if I'm landing at the same terminal I'm departing from or if I will need to take a scary train...also is there smoking anywhere in Terminal S? Flight 2572 arrival....Flight 1052 departure. Thank you!
You don't actually go to any terminal. You go straight from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Delta has gates in every concourse in ATL and the Plane Train connects every concourse inside security. Every concourse has 2 smoking areas. The train runs underground and isn't scary.
And if you do for some reason find the train scary, you can even walk in an underground pathway between the train tracks (well lit and actually has some nice artwork).
So...u have no way to tell if my arrival Gare is going to be near my departure gate?
You won't know your exact gates until the day of your flight. Delta uses gates throughout the airport.
Thank you!
We land at ATL from the UK and have 1 hour 26 minutes before internal connection to Savannah. Is this enough time and what is the baggage process?
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 arrival concourse. You realistically need at least 2 hours for that connection.
HI, WE ARE ARRIVING ON A DL FLIGHT FROM DCA, AND TAKING OFF 50 MINUTES LATER ON A FLIGHT TO ELEUTHERA, ALSO ON DELTA. IS THAT LIKELY TO BE SUFFICIENT TIME? ANY IDEA IF DL PLANS FOR CONNECTIONS THAT TIGHT TO BE NEAR THE ARRIVING PLANE? THANK YOU
You have enough time. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which should take 15 minutes or less. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security.
I will be arriving at terminal I, gate E34 and will be departing from terminal S, gate B17 approx. an hour and a half later. How do I get from my arrival gate to my departure gate . Never been to this airport before
You will arrive, 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 and walk to your departure gate.
Can someone help me
I am also arriving at terminal S and will depart from terminal I to Amsterdam, the layover is 40 minutes. Am nervous due to the comments I read. Never been to this airport before
A Panamanian national...flying Delta from PTY...1h25m "layover" until depart on Delta for ICT. Never been to ATL. Is that doable? Thanks.
That's not realistic. You realistically need at least 2 hours for an International to domestic connection in Atlanta.
Got my flight info; arriving to ATL to Terminal E. Flight info says Air France connection (to UK) is leaving via Terminal I. Is that the same as Terminal F?
Air France doesn't fly from Atlanta to the UK. If you are flying nonstop to the UK your flight will be on Delta or Virgin Atlantic. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse if your first flight is domestic. Where is your inbound flight from?
My in bound flight is from DFW and comes to terminal E.
Then I leave on Air France (operated by Delta) from "Terminal I"
I assume "Terminal I" is the international terminal F? There is no"Terminal I" listed on the airport map, but all my paperwork says "Terminal I."
The I Terminal (International) is listed on the Terminal map but internally it may be referred to as Concourse F.
We are flying into Atlanta from Austin on Delta connecting to an Air France flight with a 56 minute layover. Is that sufficient time? I am assuming that we will have to go through security a second time to enter international terminal. The first flight lists as Air France operated by Delta
You assume incorrectly. All you have to do is take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to your departure concourse (E or F) and board your flight. You have enough time.
Hi , we are flying from Heathrow to Atlanta and then on to Bahamas, have never had a connecting flight before, what is the process, getting panicky about delays from London and missing connecting flight etc
You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and then take the Plane Train to your departure concourse if it is not E or F.
