  • Immigration, customs, luggage handoff, security and get to gate time?

    I'm looking at Delta flights from China arriving at Detroit 6-8pm on Saturday, is 1hr 39mins enough time to connect to another domestic Delta flight?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Immigration times in DTW are generally pretty quick and all Delta flights are in the same terminal.

     

  • HOW CAN I CONNECT FROM McNAMARA TO NORTH TERMINAL?

    Hi, I will arrive from Paris at 16:20 at McNAMARA Termial but I have to change to North terminal to fly to Denver with Frontier Airlines. I guess there should be some transportation but I dont find it. Could you help me please?.

     

    There is a shuttle bus but it runs infrequently since few passengers have to go between the two terminals. I hope you have at least 2 hours for your transfer, preferably closer to 3.

     

  • 30 Minute Layover

    I'm traveling through DTW on Friday from ROC to SFO and have a 30 min layover on Delta. Flights are 3691 and 745. Will I make this?

     

    You will have to hope your first flight is on-time and hurry. You will likely arrive in the B Concourse of the McNamara Terminal and depart from the A Concourse. They are connected by an underground tunnel with a moving walkway. Your connection may take up to 20 minutes, so that leaves just 10 minutes to spare.

     

  • Transfertime for transit to Ft. Lauderdale

    On may 3rd I will arrive from Amsterdam at 10.40 a.m. with DL 251 and have to transfer with DL 1704 at 14.00 p.m. to Fort Lauderdale. What exactly I have to do when I arrive. Is the first time I have to transfer in U.S. and what I understood Detroit Airport is very big. Please help me.On what floors are Immigration, Luggage pick up, Customs, re-check desk and concourses?

     

    You will arrive in the center of the A concourse and go directly to US immigration, there's no way to get lost here. Then you will claim your bags, go through US Customs, and then re-check them with Delta, then you will go up to the departure level and go through security. Then you will go to your departure gate which will also be in the A concourse of the McNamara Terminal.

     

    Thx ZAP for your answer. So, if I understand quite right, US Immigration, luggage, US Customs and rechecking with Delta is all on the same where we arrive?

     

    I mean the same Floor. Sorry.

     

    Yes, you will go down some stairs after you get out of the jetway (it will be the only way to go) and everything you have to do will be down on that level until you have to go through security. There are plenty of signs.

     

    Is the tranfertime enough?

     

    Will you be so kind to tell me of the transfer time between the two planes is enough? Thank you ZAP for your help!

     

  • 44 min. layover- can we make it?

    We will have 44 mins. to make our next connection. We are flying Delta from Charleston,SC changing planes in Detroit before flying on to Buf,NY. Is this possible?

     

    Yes, if your first flight is on time it's quite possible. All Delta flights are connected inside security in the McNamara Terminal and the worst possible connection would take about 20 minutes.

     

    Thanks for the help. It shouldn't be a problem now because they have changed my flight to where we have an hour and 10 mins. layover.

    Arrive 6 Mar on Deltat DL3982 from Manchester, NH. at 9:30 am. Depart to Tokyo on Delta DL275 at 1:30 pm. Could you please provide a terminal map showing route from arrival area to departure area. Thank you very much.

     

    You will arrive in the A, B, or C concourse of the McNamara Terminal (likely B or C) and depart from the center part of the A concourse of the same terminal. All Delta gates at DTW are connected inside security. You will have a ton of time for your connection as it should take 20 minutes or less and you have 4 hours.
