ATL Airport Survival Guide

The Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson Airport is the busiest airport in the world and here are 3 tips to help you travel through Atlanta with hopefully least amount of stress.

  1. ATL12 Hour Connection Time – I would recommend at least 2 hours between flights if you are just passing through Atlanta. This is a very big airport and you never know what might happen to delay your inbound flight. If you are returning from an international flight remember you need to claim any checked luggage and recheck them before continuing on to your connecting flight.
  2. Know the layout – The layout of the airport is in an easy layout. There are 7 terminals and they go in order of T, A, B, C, D, E, and F. F is the international terminal and there are check-in counters with security check points at  both the T and F terminals. To get to another terminal you can take the Plane Train or walk. It is about a 5 min walk between terminals and there are moving sidewalks.
  3. Avoid long TSA security lines – The security lines can be a little outrageous at times so be sure to give yourself enough time. TSA PreCheck can be a time saver. It also doesn’t hurt to ask a security agent which checkpoint has the shortest wait time.
