Atlanta Hartsfield/ Jackson Airport Arrival Instructions for JSU ELI Students
PRINT THIS INFORMATION AND TAKE IT WITH YOU WHEN YOU TRAVEL.

Where will I meet the ELI staff member?
We usually will have a sign with your name on it (in English letters) and wait for you at your baggage claim carousel, or we will meet you at the top of the very long escalator at the end of the airport's underground train system.
What if my arrival time or flight number changes?
Please contact the ELI as soon as you know of the change. Please remember to give the new flight information to the ELI.
What if I cannot find the ELI staff member who is picking me up from the airport?
Please wait at the baggage carousel until everyone from your flight is gone. If you still cannot find the ELI staff member, call one of the numbers above.
What if I lose my luggage?
Although losing luggage is not a frequent occurrence, it does sometimes happen. If you do lose your luggage, the ELI representative will help you fill out the necessary forms for the airline to return it to you. It usually takes between 24-72 hours before lost luggage is found and delivered to you (usually at no cost), so pack at least one change of clothes and necessary personal items in your carry-on luggage just in case. Also, put the ELI address on and in your luggage. If it is lost, then it will be delivered to us and not returned to your home country.
