  • 31 Min Layover
    Oct 31, 2012
    1
    I have a Delta flight that is arriving at DTW at 9:29am tomorrow and my connection to Charleston is a Delta flight leaving at 10am. Based on what I know from looking at these flights' histories, the plane will land at gate A and my connection will be at gate c7. Is 31 minutes enough time to make my flight??

     

    On Arrival at the McNamara Terminal of DTW Airport, keep in mind that Concourse A has 1.5 miles of moving walkways. Also, the Express Tram stops at the South station near gate A11, the Terminal station in the center near the water feature, and the North station near gate A67. 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. Concourse C has gates C1-C43 on opposite sides - and the elevator between Concourses B & C leads to the Lower Level gates C1 to C7 (your connecting gate).

     

  • Is 1h20mn enough for a layover?
    Nov 6, 2012

    I'm flying with Delta from Paris (CDG) to DTW and then to Chicago Midway (MDW) on December. I have a 1h20mn layover in DTW. Knowing that I need to go through passport check, get my luggage, go through customs, check-in my luggage again and that i might be quite crowded at this time of the year, will I have enough time catch the plane to Chicago?

     

    Your arrival at, and departure from DTW Airport depends on which airlines you are using, and whether you need to transfer between McNamara & North Terminals. I strongly suggest you open www.ifly.com/dtw, then click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, and scroll down to the detailed text. Customs clearance itself can take anywhere from 35-65 mins.

     

    If coming from Paris you will be arriving into the McNamara terminal. if your flight to MDW is on Delta, then you just need to recheck after customs and then go upstairs, the across to the other concourse for your flight to MDW. This is doable if your flight from Paris is on time. If your flight to MDW is on Southwest you will have to go to the North Terminal with your bags and recheck at the Southwest ticket counter in the North Terminal. I highly recommend that you rebook for a later flight if your DTW-MDW flight is on Southwest

     

  • 1.5hr enough for international flight?

    I'm flying from Shanghai, China to DTW and then to JFK. Both are Delta. I have 1.5hrs layover. Is that enough for me to go through the custom? Thank you.

     

    On arrival at DTW - McNamara Terminal, you go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance and re-check-in your bag - that should take you 35-50 mins at most; escalators take you to level 2, go through security check and on to either Concourses A, B or C (check overhead screens for your departing flight number & gate): Concourse A, reached from level 2, has 1.5 miles of moving walkways . Additionally, the Express Tram stops at the South station near gate A11, the Terminal station in the center near the water feature, and the North station near gate A67. 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. Concourse B at right has gates B1-21on opposite sides. Concourse C at left has C1 through C43 on opposite sides. An elevator between Concourses B & C leads to the Lower Level gates C1 to C7.

     

  • Clear customs / change planes
    Oct 4, 2012

    Later this month I will be flying to DTW from Frankfurt Germany on DELTA 143 and changing to DELTA 4039 to Toronto. Is 2 hours enough time to clear customs and get to new aircraft?

     

    1. On arrival at DTW Airport at the McNamara Terminal, at lower level, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag (the tag should indicate layover and final destination Airport Codes). You can connect to your departing gates by moving walkways or by taking the Express Tram. 2. Your connecting flight is either at Concourses A, B or C (with corresponding gate numbers) - the overhead screen on arrival and your ticket should indicate flight number and gate. Note that Concourse A has 1.5 miles of moving walkways; the Express Tram stops at its south station near gate A11, in the center near the water feature (where you would arrive from the main terminal), and at the North station near gate A67. Also, a tunnel connects A, B & C concourses. 2 hours will suffice.

     

  • Layover time

    My mother will be flying into Detroit via Delta with a 50 minute layover leaving via Delta Connection. She will be require wheelchair assistance. Will this be enough time?

     

    When making airline reservations it is expedient to state special needs, including wheelchair assistance. If that is too late, I suggest you ask the flight attendant to contact your Delta desk at DTW to arrange for Skycap service.

    IS 30 MIN LONG ENOUGH TO CHANGE PLANES ON DELTA FLIGHT?

     

    While Delta uses the McNamara Terminal, I cannot tell you which gate you arrive at or depart from (A,B, or C gates). 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. Concourse B, gates B1-21, (left) and Concourse C, gates 1-43 (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. Half an hour would suffice - however, if you are an international arrival and need to go through customs clearance, you would not make it.

    On 20 Oct we are flying Delta Flt 1969 to Detroit Connecting with Delta Flt 2048 to NYC LaGuardia. We have approx 50 minutes Between flights. Is that enough time?

     

    Delta uses the McNamara Terminal, which has Concourses & corresponding gates A, B & C. Your ticket and the overhead screens on arrival at DTW will indicate flight number & gate. This is the concourse layout: Concourse A, reached from level 2, has 1.5 miles of moving walkways . Additionally, the Express Tram stops at the South station near gate A11, the Terminal station in the center near the water feature, and the North station near gate A67. 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. Concourse B at right has gates B1-21on opposite sides. Concourse C at left has C1 through C43 on opposite sides. An elevator between Concourses B & C leads to the Lower Level gates C1 to C7. 50 mins will suffice for transfer.

    Delta uses the McNamara terminals at DTW Airport. Its Concourses/gates are laid out as follow: Concourse A, reached from level 2, has 1.5 miles of moving walkways . Additionally, the Express Tram stops at the South station near gate A11, the Terminal station in the center near the water feature, and the North station near gate A67. 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.

    at DTW Airport Delta uses the McNamara terminal. On arrival look at overhead screen to find your Quebec connection (flight number & gate): Councourses & Gates: Concourse A, reached from level 2, has 1.5 miles of moving walkways . Additionally, the Express Tram stops at the South station near gate A11, the Terminal station in the center near the water feature, and the North station near gate A67.

  • Terminals & Gates

    Arriving on Delta Flt 57 from London connecting with Delta Flt 5149 to DC. Whish Terminal & Gates do I arrive and depart from? How do I get from one to the other?

     

    1. All international arrivals need to go through passport control, pick up luggage & go through customs clearance, then re-check-in bags for connecting flight. I cannot give you the gate number you arrive at /depart from; however, you will arrive at the McNamara Terminal at either Concourses A, B or C, which have corresponding gates. 2. Concourse A, reached from level 2, has 1.5 miles of moving walkways . Additionally, the Express Tram stops at the South station near gate A11, the Terminal station in the center near the water feature, and the North station near gate A67. 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. Concourse B at right has gates B1-21on opposite sides. Concourse C at left has C1 through C43 on opposite sides. An elevator between Concourses B & C leads to the Lower Level gates C1 to C7.

    What is Terminal EM. Cannot find it on the terminal map

     

    DTW Airport has a North Terminal and the McNamara Terminal. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/dtw and click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the detailed text.

     

  • How to get from B19 to A8?
    Sep 5, 2012
    2
    We have a 42 minute layover to get from gate B19 TO Gate A8. How do I get from the B concourse to the A terminal? Are they on different levels? How long do you think it would take to walk (with a 2-year-old in a stroller)? Any help would be appreciated!

     

    Upon arrival at DTW, McNmara Terminal, Concourse A, gate A8, take either: the Express Tram at Gate A11; gett off at the Terminal Station located at the Water Feature between gates A38-40. You need to take the tunnel there to get to Concourse B/C (B to the left - first gate B1, 3,5,7,11,15 & B19. - OR- use the moving walkways at Concourse A up to gate A38 and then take the same tunnel to your B gate. 40 mins should be plenty for you.

     

    I'm going from b19 TO a6. Any chance you can reverse that for me? :)

  • How many minutes from gate to gate
    Aug 22, 2012
    1
    How long will it take a slow-ish walker to get from C6 to C30?

     

    This is the layout of Concourse C at DTW: Concourse C serves American Airlines; at left leads gates C8 through C43. These gate areas are arranged in five clusters, four of which have three gates on each side, the last cluster has gates C32-43. An elevator between Concourses B & C leads to the Lower Level gates C1 to C7. - As you can see you arrive on the lower level and need to take the elevator up, then proceed to the cluster with gate 30. Impossible to give you connecting time.
