International or Domestic Terminal at ATL

Explorer C

Flying to Cancun from ATL via Hobby and then returning to ATL via Ft Lauderdale. Anyone know which terminal for either end? Found some old posts saying it still goes through domestic, but then returns to international. That was 4+ years ago, though, so would like some confirmation and advice so I can plan and book parking accordingly. Thanks!

The international flights still depart from the domestic terminal. 


The arrival flight since it is coming from FLL will also use the domestic terminal. (i.e. there will potentially be a bunch of people getting on in FLL that are not subject to customs - therefore you must be going through customs in FLL.)


I don't believe Southwest has any gates at the international terminal in ATL, so they must be either inbound connections through FLL, HOU, etc. or from pre-cleared origin airports.
