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.

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.
Transiting from shanghai to toronto through detroit, will I collect my bags and go through customs in detroit before connecting for toronto
Yes, in Detroit you will have to 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.
We are arriving in DTW via Alaska Air (North Terminal) and depart Delta (McNamara) with 80 min layover if on time. I am concerned about the re screening time. Do we have enough time to make our connecting flight?
It will be very difficult, bordering on impossible, especially if you have checked bags to transfer.
I will be arriving from MDT and have less than an hour to make a connection in DTW to get to Denver, flying on Delta. Is that enough time? I am in shape but if my flight is even a little bit late arriving, is that safe?
Yes, that is enough time. All Delta flights are in the same terminal.
On May 25, I have an early morning flight on Delta from Phoenix to Detroit. Once I land in Detroit, I will have exactly 1 hour to connect to a flight headed to Cincinnati via a Delta Connection (operated by Endeavor Air). Will the one hour be enough time to make the connection? Thanks.
Yes, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
