Guide to Atlanta Airport During the Holiday Rush

November 20, 2011 - Atlanta Journal Constitution - By Kelly Yamanouchi -- It’s time for the holiday rush with some changes in security measures, as well. Travelers should be prepared for the possibility of imaging machines, pat-downs and delays. Here are a few things fliers need to know as they navigate the Atlanta Airport:

Be early
- Delta Air Lines is advising travelers to get to the airport three hours in advance of international flights and up to two hours in advance of domestic flights. Check with your airline for more specific suggestions.

- For Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport information, go to atlanta-airport.com or call 1-800-897-1910.

Security lines
- Hartsfield-Jackson’s main security checkpoint is on one end of the main terminal and has 22 lanes for passengers flying out. A maze line leads to the checkpoint. The line usually moves slowly but steadily. The airport has four lanes at a Terminal South checkpoint and six lanes at a Terminal North checkpoint. Signs will direct travelers to three types of lanes they can choose from: Black Diamond for expert, elite or frequent business travelers; Blue Square for more casual travelers with carry-on baggage and a basic understanding of security requirements; and Green Circle for those with special needs or those traveling with young children in strollers.

- The TSA this year also launched a new “trusted traveler” program at Hartsfield-Jackson and a few other airports, allowing some travelers such as the most frequent fliers on Delta to opt into the “PreCheck” program for a chance at expedited screening. The PreCheck lane is one of the lanes at the South security checkpoint at Hartsfield-Jackson.

- You must have a boarding pass and photo ID to go through security and on to the gate concourses.
