We have a 38 minute layover at DTW. We will come coming into Gate B7 and leaving out of gate A8. Is that enough time to make the connection? Thanks!
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
We are traveling from LA to Paris connecting in DTW, delta and airfrance. we have only 55 min connecting. do we have to claim & recheck our bags? is 55 min enough?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Detroit is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in the McNamara Terminal. You have enough time.
Thank you,
Is an 1 hour enough time to get to arriving Delta flight from LA, changing to skywest flight to Bradley/Hartford Conn?
Yes, that is enough time. The second flight is just a Delta Connection flight. They are both in the McNamara Terminal. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Flying in from Tokyo arriving Gate A50 - Just one hour layover and connecting flight is Gate A75. How long to get through Customs? Will this connection work?
That's barely possible if everything goes perfectly.
Only 35 minutes between flights. Can this been done? It looks like the Skywest flight might deplane in B or C concourse and International flight to LHR might leave out of A concourse.
Yes, that is just enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Thank you for your response.
Returning to US from Montreal Flight 6245 at 8:07 pm connecting to Delta 4705 to GSP at 9:00 pm. Connect time is only 53 minutes. Is this adequate time ?
Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Detroit is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you for your response.
I arrive on Delta flight 1114 @ 7:45AM, then have a 43 min layover to connect to Delta flight 1569. How do I get to the departure gate? Do I have enough time?
The terminal layout is very simple. It's just one long hallway. Both flights will be on concourse A of the McNamara Terminal. You have plenty of time.
Hi. I have a flight from Elmira, NY on Delta (operated by GoJet Airlines) and make a connection in DTW to get to Nagoya, flying on Delta. Do I have to claim my bag and re-check it at the international terminal? Thanks.
No, Detroit does not have a separate "International Terminal". All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.
hello! i have flight from cancun to israel with connection of 2 hours on detroit. i am israeli citizen and i don't have visa.is it problem?
You need a US Transit Visa in order to make that connection.
Flying Delta from SEA to PVD with a 36 minute stop at DTW. Is that enough time to connect to next Delta flight? Return flight from Bradley to SEA has a 40 minute stop at DTW.
Yes, that is enough time but leaves no time to spare.
Thank you.
