Domestic Terminal

International Terminal

ATL Airport Terminals

ATL operates from 2 terminals — the domestic terminal on the west side of the airport and the international terminal located on the east side.

Flights arrive and depart from a total of 192 gates split across 7 concourses: T, A, B, C, D, E, and F. Passengers can travel between concourses using the Transportation Mall (pedestrian tunnel) with moving walkways or by riding the Plane Train.

When you’re flying international or domestic, you’ll need to check-in at the respective terminal. If necessary, you can travel between the two using the Plane Train or by the shuttle bus that departs from outside the terminals.

The ATL SkyTrain connects the domestic terminal to the Gateway Center, which has 3 airport hotels and the Georgia International Convention Center, before moving on to the west parking deck. The final stop is the rental car center, which is located about 5 minutes away from the domestic terminal, and then the SkyTrain loops back to the airport.

Hot Tip: Check out our article on how to get between terminals at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

Inter-terminal Transport

Walking

Passengers can walk between the domestic terminal and concourse T and from the international terminal to concourses F and E. For all other journeys, passengers must ride the Plane Train or terminal shuttle bus.

Plane Train (Inside the Secure Area)

The Plane Train stops at concourse T of the domestic terminal and at concourses A, B, C, D, E, and F, where travelers can get a connection to the international terminal. Trains depart every 2 minutes from the lower level.

Terminal Shuttle Bus (Outside the Secure Area)

Passengers that are unable to check in, clear security, and ride the Plane Train between the 2 terminals can ride the terminal shuttle bus. Shuttles depart every 15 minutes from the following locations:

  • Domestic Terminal: West curb of the ground transportation area (exit through doors W-1 or W-2).
  • International Terminal: Arrivals level outside doors A1 and A2.

Hot Tip: It’s wise to use one of these transportation options, as the farthest points between the domestic and international terminals can be up to 2 miles apart.

SkyTrain (Outside the Secure Area)

The ATL SkyTrain is accessible from the domestic terminal and stops at the following locations:

  • Gateway Center, which has 3 airport hotels and the Georgia International Convention Center
  • West parking deck
  • Rental car center

Security and Customs at ATL

As the busiest airport in the world, ATL is known for its long lines at security and customs. This is despite it being the first airport to roll out automated screening lanes.

On the day of your flight, you can check ATL security wait times on the airport’s website which is updated frequently, and set up an email alert with Trak-a-Line should these wait times change so you can plan your time accordingly. The security checkpoints are open at these times:

SCROLL FOR MORE
TerminalCheckpointHours of Operation
DomesticMain24/7
DomesticNorth 4:15 a.m. to 8 p.m.
DomesticSouth (PreCheck lanes only)Check the TSA schedule
InternationalMain5:30 a.m. to 12 a.m.

ATL recommends that you arrive at least 2 hours before your flight if flying domestically and 3 hours for international flights to allow enough time to clear security.

There are some programs you should consider enrolling in that aim to speed up security and customs through ATL (and other participating airports):

TSA PreCheck

U.S. citizens can apply for TSA PreCheck, an expedited screening program in which ATL participates. Applicants need to apply online, pay a $78 fee, and schedule an appointment at an enrollment center for a 10-minute interview, which includes a background check and fingerprinting.

TSA PreCheck opening hours vary, so check the TSA schedule for more information.

ATL has an enrollment center located in Concourse A, open Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. If your application is successful, then you’ll receive a Known Traveler Number.

Enrollment in TSA PreCheck allows you to use the TSA PreCheck lanes at ATL security and to NOT remove your shoes, light jacket, belt, liquids, or laptop.

Global Entry

ATL also participates in the Global Entry program, which expedites entry to the U.S. for U.S. citizens returning from international travel. Global Entry members are able to use entry kiosks at ATL by scanning their passport or U.S. residency card.

There’s a Global Entry enrollment center at ATL in the international terminal, Arrivals Level U, which also conducts interviews for conditionally approved applicants to become fully approved. The enrollment center is open daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and enrollment on arrival is available daily from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Mobile Passport

ATL has designated Mobile Passport Control lines which you can use once you’ve pre-registered. Simply set up a profile using your passport information and answer 5 questions about your trip.

Once you’ve arrived at ATL (or any participating airport), submit your data through the app, and you’ll receive an instant receipt which can be used for up to 4 hours after submission.

CLEAR

ATL also participates in CLEAR, which is a program for expedited security clearance using eye and fingerprint scanning instead of showing an ID at the security checkpoint. CLEAR lanes are available in both the domestic and international terminals during the following hours:

SCROLL FOR MORE
TerminalCheckpointHours of Operation
DomesticMain5 a.m. to 8 p.m. (CLEAR lanes and enrollment)
