    40 min connecting time in Nov. Should I be concerned?

     

    If your flight is on-time you'll be fine. Both flights will be on the same concourse (even though it's a big concourse). Connecting on Delta in DTW is very simple.

    I am travelling from Nagoya and I have 1hr and 20mins layover time in Detroit then will need to transfer to another plane going to Minneapolis. What are the processes that I would need to go through in order to get to my connecting flight? Is this layover time enough to pass through all the processes? Thanks!

     

    Your arrival at, and departure from DTW depends on which Terminal, Concourse & gate your airline(s) use; I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text, for all the necessary information. Your time stated should suffice.

    You will clear immigration in the lower level of the McNamara terminal, then just re-check your bags with delta after claiming them in immigration, then go upstairs to the departure level and go back through security and then to your departure gate for MSP. It's a very simple process at DTW. You should have enough time if your Nagoya flight is on-time. If you do miss your connections, Delta has a lot of DTW-MSP flights that you can be re-booked on.

     

  • Sioux Falls - DTW- to China on Delta

    Does anyone know what gates flights from Sioux Falls, SD usually arrive at in DTW? I'm an older traveler flying alone and concerned about making it to the proper connecting Delta gate for the flight to China.

     

    At DTW, your arrival at, and departure from the terminals & their concourses & gates depends on the airline you take: At the MacNamara Terminal is Delta, while at the North Terminal are Air Canada, AirTran, American, Frontier, Southwest, Spirit, United & US Airways. To familiarize yourself with the airport layout, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/dtw, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

     

    Your Sioux Falls flight will likely arrive at concourse B or C while your departure to China will leave from A. However, it's a very easy walk through a tunnel with moving walkways to get between the two. If you really have trouble getting around you can call Delta and ask for wheelchair service.

     

  • Will 1 hour be enough time

    Will 1 hour be enough time to change from domestic Delta flight to an international Delta flight at DTW ariport?

     

    If your first flight is on time, yes, that should be enough time. Connections on Delta in DTW are fairly easy.

    CMH-DTW-MNL 1hr and 6 mins layover - will this layover time enough all flights are operated by DELTA leaving CMH 01:35pm thanks in advance

     

    Yeah, that should be enough time - connections on Delta at DTW are pretty easy.

     

  • 1:37 for International to Domestic

    Just book a trip that connects through DTW; XXX-NRT-DTW-XXX, which is DLXXX connecting to a domestic Delta Connection leg. The layover time is 1:37 1. Is 1:37 enough in DTW? I've never connected this way through DTW before. 2. Is the process still: deboard, claim bags, go through customs/immigration, recheck bags, go through security again?

     

    Yes, that's the procedure - that should be enough time, barely.

     

  • international connection BOS to Taipei

    Returning from Taipei to DTW and going on to Boston, how much time do I need? My current schedule has me with 1.5 hours between flights. Is that enough to go thru passport control and clear customs? I assume I need to do that in DTW before going on to BOS. Is that correct?

     

    Yes, on arrival at DTW you need to go through customs clearance process which could now take longer due to the sequester. If you need to change terminals, or if you have 2 separate tickets for 2 airlines, your time would not suffice. I strongly suggest that you open www.ifly.com/dtw then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

     

    Assuming both of your tickets are on Delta (and they probably are since Delta is the only airline that flies from Detroit to Boston), then you will not have to change terminals.

     

  • International connection 50 minutes

    My route is Omaha-Detroit-Frankfurt (Germany) with Delta. I have international connection 50 minutes in Detroit in the same terminal EM. Is it enough time?

     

    There is no Terminal EM. DTW only has the McNamara & the North Terminal. Delta uses the McNamara Terminal, which has Concourses A, B & C with corresponding gates (i.e., gates A38-78; gates B1-21; gates C1-43). All concourses are accessible from level 2 of the main terminal. Your transfer time is sufficient. For detailed information, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/dtw, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the text.

     

    It's doable if your first flight is on-time. The Delta terminal in DTW has a fairly simple layout. If you miss your connection you'll probably get sent to Frankfurt on a later flight via Paris or Amsterdam.

     

    Thank you!

     

    EM stands for Ed McNamara

    Where is the fast bag drop for Spriit at DTW?

     

    The North Terminal at DTW has a very simple layout and all the Spirit counters are located together, just look for the fast bag drop signs.

    We arrive at Detroit at 3:11 pm from Milwaukee and have an international flight that leaves at 4:00 to Amsterdam. That seems very tight. Should I try to change flights?

     

    At DTW, the North Terminal with D gates serves Air Canada, AirTran, American, Frontier, Lufthansa, Royal Jordanian, Southwest, Spirit, United, US Airways & all charters. All other airlines are in the McNamara Terminal with A, B & C gates. If you would need to transfer between the 2 terminals, as you would need the shuttle (16-20 mins) and at connecting Terminal go through security check. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

    Both of your flights will be in the same Terminal (the McNamara Terminal). It's a doable connection. Also if you miss your flight to Amsterdam, there will be another later that evening.

     

  • Layover of 35 mins

    I'm flying from Columbus, Ohio to Toronto with layover time of 35 minutes. Both flights are Delta. Is that enough time? Do I have to go through security check in Detroit?

     

    No, you will not have to go through security in Detroit. All Delta gates in Detroit are connected beyond security. It's a tight connection so your first flight will need to be on-time, but if it is 35 minutes is enough.

     

    Thanks much!

    I'm flying from akron canton airport. Layover in Detroit for 51 min. Coming from gate C22 to A8. Is this enough time??

     

    Yes, connecting in DTW is pretty easy. It's a big terminal but there's a train if you have to go to either end of A. It shouldn't take more than 15 minutes.

    I am flying in on Delta from YOW (pre-cleared C&I) and connecting to FLL on Delta. Do I have to clear security again to make the connection?

     

    No, you don't have to go through security again. Pre-cleared flights from Canada are treated just like domestic flights.

     

  • Layerover time 34mins :C32 and A31

    Will arrive at gate C32 and within 34mins have to catch my connection to Chicago O'Hare at Gate A31. Is this possible to do or will I miss the connection? Are there TSA screening points between C32 and A31

     

    At DTW, Concourse has C1 through C43 and a connector to Concourse A: Concourse A has 1.5 miles of moving walkways. Concourse A has to the left gates A38-A1; to the right gates A40-78, and at its center the tunnel connecting to Concourse B to the left and Concourse C to the right.

     

    In view of what you have stated, do you think I have sufficient time (31 mins. ) to catch the connecting flight?

     

    It's enough time if your first flight is on time. You do not have to go through security again.

     

    Thank You!

     

  • Delta 1 hour 20 min layover DTW to DC

    International flight from Monterrey (Mexico) to DTW and then connected from DTW to DC. And I have only 1 hour 20 minutes. Does someone knows at what place is located the passport control, and if it's near to the pick up luggage and near to the customs clearance, and near to the re-check-in bags for connecting flight. Suggestions please?

     

    Your arrival & departure depends on which airlines you take. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/dtw then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.

     

    The only think I need to know is where is the location of the passport control and how far is the pick up luggage.
