  • Connecting 35 minutes
    Oct 2, 2015
    Flying from bmi to Dtw and connecting to tpa with 35 minutes to connect. Both flights are with Delta. Will we have enough time?


  • Do I have enough time?

    I am travelling on Delta from Tampa Bay and I have 45 minutes connecting time to catch my flight to Montréal, also with Delta. Is it enough?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thanks a lot, I really appreciate! Louis

    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both on Concourse A of the McNamara Terminal.


  • Connecting flights in Detroit

    Hello, My Delta flight arrives in Detroit from Newark at 12:49PM then our next flight also with Delta to Pellston departs at 1:50pm, I dont fly very often so was wanting to make sure this will be enough time as we cannot miss that connecting flight


    That should be enough time as long as your flight from Newark is on-time.


    Thanks, also would you know if they would transfer our check in luggage to the next plane or would we have to collect it once we land and check it in again?


  • Do I have to go through TSA check again between concourses A & B/C?
    Sep 12, 2015
    I know, it sounds stupid but is there another tsa checkpoint at the ends of the underground tunnel connecting concourse A to concourses B/C at Detroit? Also, is the tunnel easy to find from concourse B? I have a 43 minute layover and it appears that I might arrive in concourse B and have to depart from concourse A. I am nervous about having enough time to make my connecting domestic flight. As you can probably tell, I am not a frequent traveler and extremely nervous!


    Sorry, I forgot to add that this was for Detroit's McNamara airport.


    All gates in the McNamara terminal are connected inside security. The tunnel is inside security and easy to find.


    Thank you, I appreciate the response.

    I am traveling from AMS to SAT with a 1.42h layover in DTW. All flights are operated by Delta. I am non-US citizen, Is it enough time for connection and baggage claim and re-check? Thanks in advance.


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Is 35 minutes too short to change planes, Delta?
    Aug 29, 2015
    I can select Delta connection/Delta flights that give me 35 minutes to change planes, if on time. Is that enough time? I don't fly much and am really trying to avoid Atlanta for a changeover (I do have Charlotte as an option, possibly).


    That is enough time if your first flight is on-time but leaves no time to spare if it isn't.


  • Internation to Domestic Connection - 1 hours and 42 minutes
    Aug 20, 2015
    Hi there, I am flying from London Heathrow to Louisville, and I have a connecting flight in Detroit. Both flights are with Delta. I'm flight from London to DTW on flight DL21 that lands in Detroit at 6:01pm, then flight from DTW to Louisville (SDF) on flight DL Shuttle 3380 at 7:44pm, and therefore a layover duration of 1 hours and 42 minutes. I will just have a carry-on on me so I don't need to check-in anything. Would 1 hour and 42 minutes be enough to clear immigration and passport control and make my connecting flight to Louisville at DTW? Thanks for your help.


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.


    Thank you for your response, really appreciate it. In the unlikely event that the queue at the immigration and custom was too long and I end up missing my connecting flight, since both of my flights (LHR to DTW and DTW to SDF) are with Delta, would Delta put me on the next available flight to SDF for free? Thanks again for the great help.


    Yes, Delta would put you on the next available flight to SDF for free.


  • enough time for connection
    Aug 13, 2015
    My husband and I are flying into DTW on express jet airlines and have 30 minutes to make connecting delta fly? is that enough time?


    If they are both booked through Delta/Delta connection that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. All Delta/Delta Connection gates are in the McNamara Terminal and connected inside security.


  • International flight

    I am travelling from Hongkong to Detroit and have 45 mins to take another flight to Des Moines on 15th Aug through Delata Airlines. Is it enough time to go through immigration checks and board another flight.


    No, the minimum international to domestic connection time at Detroit is 90 minutes. Contact your travel agent or Delta to be rebooked.


  • Enough time to make connecting flight
    Aug 11, 2015
    I have an international student that is flying KLM/Delta from Amsterdam to Metro and needs to make a connector to O'hare flying Delta. Their flight from Amsterdam lands at 10:30 A.M. and his connector leaves at 12:10 P.M. from McNamara. Will that give them enough time to get through customs and make their connector to O'Hare?


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • 2h30min for layover from London to GreenBay
    Aug 11, 2015
    Is 2h 30min long enough to get through US Immigration, claim my bags, go through US Customs, re-check my bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to my departure gate?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.


  • Traveling just with Delta

    If I'm leaving from Syracuse going through Detroit and ending up in San Diego will I have to change terminals?


    No, all Delta flights use the McNamara Terminal. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • from rome to detroit to toronto
    Aug 8, 2015
    is my baggage transferred directly to the final destination or I have to clear custom at detorit?


    Yes, even though your bags will be tagged to YYZ, in Detroit you will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. You will go through Canadian immigration and customs when you get to Toronto.


  • Domestic to international transfer
    Aug 6, 2015
    We have an hour between a delta flight from Orlando and Virgin Atlantic to London Heathrow. U.S. The transfer in the airport between flights far and is this enough time for security etc. thanks


    You do not have to go through security or transfer anywhere in the airport. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in the A concourse of the McNamara Terminal. You have enough time if your flight from Orlando is on-time.
