Traveling from Atlanta to Lisbon through Barajas Madrid

Planning a trip to Lisbon in July 2012. We will have a stopover in Madrid Barajas for 5 hours. Do we go through customs in Madrid and if so how much time is needed between flights in order to do this without being frantic? Do we need to claim our luggage . Flying to Madrid via Delta and to Lisbon via Air Europa they are both Sky miles partners if that make a difference.

Delta and Air Europa are members of the Skyteam Alliance, and code share.

You and your luggage should be checked through to your final destination, ensure you are given two boarding cards for each sector.

You'll pass through Spanish customs and immigration at Madrid of course. 5 hours will be more than enough time between flights if there situations to deal with.

Your port of entry in the European Union is Madrid, so that's where you'll have to go through emigration. Your luggage will go direct to Lisbon though, no need to claim it. Delta and AirEuropa use different terminals, but you can walk from one to the other. 5 Hours is more than enough.
