  • Connecting flight from dtw to den
    Aug 25, 2016
    We are flying from PLN to DTW on Sky West Connect flight 7426 arrival time about 8a.m. the departure time is 8:36a.m. flight 1511 to DEN. Will it be in the same terminal? How do I find info on that? Times are real close. Eeks.


    Yes, both flights will be in the McNamara Terminal. You will arrive in concourse B or C (likely C) and depart from Concourse A. They are connected inside security by an underground walkway. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Enough time to change planes?
    Aug 25, 2016
    Hi, I am flying from London Heathrow to Toronto, via Detroit Metro. I have 1.5 hours to change planes, is this enough time and do I need to clear customs? Any advice on the transit would be appreciated. Thanks


    All you need to clear customs is a passport. As for the connection, this will be very tight. In all likelihood, this is not enough time to catch your flight unless your plane from London is early. If you miss your flight in DTW, Delta will rebook you on the next flight to Toronto. (I'm assuming that this is booked on one ticket through Delta. If not, let me know)


    1.5 hours is usually sufficient for an International to International connection at DTW.

    Is one hour enough to transfer between flights?


    If the first flight is domestic and on-time, yes, that is enough time.

    I bought a round trip ticket delta 952 delta 473 delta 275 delta 276 delta 1906 that is dca to nyc then nyc to narita then narita to manila. my luggage went straight to manila. How come on my way back now I have to claim my luggage at Detroit for a flight back to BWI?


    You have to claim your bags in Detroit on the way back from Manila in order to clear US Customs with your bags at your point of entry.


  • LAX - DTW - Amsterdam Delta
    Aug 13, 2016
    We arrive in DTW at 7:09pm and need to catch our connecting international flight by 8:22pm. Both flights are Delta. Is 1 hours and 13 mins (73 minutes) enough time or would we miss our flight? A little worried here.


    Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do in DTW is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both on Concourse A of the McNamara Terminal.


  • International Flight Connection at DTW

    Hi we are traveling from MCI (KC) to DTW then to CDG (Paris) via Air France. Our layover time is 1h31 at DTW. It says the arrival flight to DTW and departing flight from DTW arrive at Terminal EM. Do we have to go through security upon arrival to DTW or just find our next gate?


    All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will check in with Delta in Kansas City. You won't find an Air France desk anywhere in Kansas City. You have plenty of time.


    Thank you so much ZAP!


  • From Mco to DTw and on to LHR

    Hi we fly in to DTw and have 1 hour until our next flight to lhr. Is that enough time?


    Yes, all you have to do in Detroit is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Hi Scotch. We're doing the same next month and I'm wondering how your transfer went; was there enough time and did you have to collect baggage or was it transferred automatically? Regards.


  • Terminal Question

    I am flying into Detroit on Delta , only an 43 mins between flights, Is that enough time to make a connecting delta flight to San Antonio?


    If you are flying into Detroit on a domestic flight, yes, that is enough time.


    Thank you, yes, I am flying in from Hartford, CT. I have never been to that airport, so a little worried not having a long layover


    It's a very simple layout.

    I am flying BTV - DTW - SAN i only have 34 minutes in Detroit will I make my flight?


    It's enough time if the flight from Burlington is on-time. Obviously there's no time to spare if it's not.


    Is it in the same terminal - just walk to gate?? Not sure how on time the BTV flight is to DTW... :-[


    Yes, all Delta flights are in the McNamara Terminal. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I will be there on 5-Aug 2:00PM and next flight is 3:30PM. there will be 1.3hrs for me to make it. Is that time enough to make it? Do i need to know something to make it done?


    Are you flying NRT-DTW-BWI? If so that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    We are flying delta with toddler leaving IAH connecting in Dwt to JFK with a layover of 1 hr. Will this be enough TIME? Our final destination is Israel leaving JFK 2 hours after landing. Thank you all


    That is plenty of time. If both flights are on Delta all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Help on connecting between terminals
    Jul 24, 2016
    I'm flying into DTW landing at North terminal on American at 11:02 am My connecting flight is at McNamara Terminal on Delta Express to Pellston leaving at 12:15 pm. Is ther anyway to make that connection even if I carry my bag on?


    With a carry on you might have a chance if you catch the shuttle bus perfectly, but it'll be very difficult.


  • from Seoul, Korea to Detroit, then to Houston
    Jul 24, 2016
    Hi, I am a Korean citizen who needs to fly from Seoul to Houston via Detroit airport on August 10. I am using Delta and have a 2:10 layover in Detroit. I am a bit worried whether I have enough time to go through immigration, claim my bags, and recheck them again.


    That should be enough time. Detroit is an easy airport to make a connection at.

    I will be traveling from AMS to DTW with 1 hour and 45 mins of layover time. Is this enough time to clear customs, catch the bus, re-check my bags and make my flight as long as the flight departs AMS on time? Thanks for your help in advance.


    What airline are you flying out of DTW? DTW does not have separate international and domestic terminals - you should not have to take a bus. If both flights are on Delta you have enough time.


    I would be flying Delta in and out. I'm a little confused when looking at the layout of the airport. It's my first time flying in there also. I'm used to flying in and out of ATL but wanted to try something new. One other question... So, flying in and out on Delta would I have to re-check my bags?


    Yes, both of your flights will be in the McNamara Terminal. You will arrive, 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.


    Sounds pretty painless and from what I have seen on previous post is that Immigration and Customs is pretty quick around mid morning. The flight will either be mid Sept or the end of Sept. Not 100% right now. Thanks for your help and the quick responses.
