Hello,
I have a flight from Nagoya to Detroit with a 6 hour layover in DTW before catching a flight from Detroit to São Paulo, Brazil. I was wondering whether it would be possible for me to get out of the airport for a few hours and come back in time for the next flight. I'm an american citizen, so I wouldn't need any visas to enter the country. Will there be any problems with security, checking any baggages, etc.?

Thanks!
Hi,

I will be flying out from Montreal to Indianapolis on November 23rd with a 1h and 20 minutes layover in Detroit. Is that enough time? Both flights are Delta.

Thanks
Hi. I have a 2 hour and 10 minute layover coming from ICN (Korea) and heading to MCO (FL) on May 23 (both flights are Delta.) I'll be traveling with an infant...

Are we cutting it close, or should we have enough time to clear immigration and customs, recheck bags, and go through security? (My husband will be there also.)
Yes, that should be enough time.
Hi, I'll be arriving from Toronto, with a layover at Detroit of 1:15 hours (5-6pm on a Tuesday), and then going to Munich, Germany. Will that be enough time? Will I have to go through security?
If both flights are on Delta that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.
Good day! I have a 1.5 hour connection in Detroit from AMS and final destination is MDW. Do we have to claim our baggage and recheck them after immigration and security ? Thanks
Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
