  • International connection 50 minutes
    Mar 29, 2013

    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.

    At DTW, 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. You have sufficient time for transfer.

    I am flying into Detroit out of Toronto Pearson on a Saturday. I am going on to Los Angelos. Will my stopover of only 100 mins. be enough time to catch my flight when I am not familiar with this airport. Please help if you can. Thanks

     

    Glad to oblige! 1. If using different airlines, make sure your bags are automatically being transferred - if not, you would have to check them in at their airline counter before proceeding to your next gate. 2. Use Toronto's U.S. customs clearance, saving you time at DTW. 3. Detroit has two terminals - the McNamara with A, B & C gates, and the North Terminal with D gates. Your ticket and the overhead screens on arrival will indicate your connecting gate. For transfer options, and terminal details, click on www.ifly.com/dtw, and click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the detailed text below the map. Your time will suffice.

     

    Assuming both of your flights are on Delta, you have plenty of time

     

  • 1:30 enough to fly out internationally?
    Dec 6, 2012

    I have a domestic flight into Detroit via Delta @ Terminal M. My outbound international flight is by Air France also @ Terminal M. Will an hour and a half be enough since I do not have to do customs? Please help! I appreciate your effort!

     

    Delta uses the McNamara Terminal which has Concourses A, B & C, with corresponding gates. Note that Concourse A of McNamara has 1.5 miles of moving walkways, but also uses the Express Tram serving 3 stations - the South station near gate A11, the Terminal station in the center near the water feature, and the North station near gate A67. 3. Concouses B (left) & C (right) can only be reached from Concourse A, at its center, by using the tunnel. Note: C gates C1-C7 are on the lower level, reached in the center of B/C via escalator. Your boarding pass and the overhead screen will indicate flight and gate number. Only international arrivals need to go through customs procedure. You have plenty of time!
