NYC international round trip to Exuma Bahamas w/ connections

Hi I’m flying internationally from NYC to Exuma, Bahamas with a ATL connection

layover time is 1hr 28min going down

and 1hr 50 min returning

I understand returning I have to go through customs, security, and different terminal etc? is this going be enough time both ways to get a connecting flight?

If incoming is on time, you should be fine.

Your outbound flight ought to be fine. Id have reservations about the connection time for the return flight though. If there arent long lines or delays you should make it but if there's a wait at baggage claim or immigration you might miss your connection. As long as you're on one ticket though the airline will reroute you if you do miss that connection.

thanks for the info I was able to get Delta to change my return so I now have a 3 hr layover I think I should be ok now. How do I get to from the domestic terminal to international terminal ? Do I have to take a shuttle?

No you won't. See the top question on the right explaining this.
