  • limited transfer time
    Jun 28, 2014
    We arrive in Detroit on Delta with only 40 min to transfer to international flight to Paris on Air France (in November). Is this enough time?


    All Delta gates are connected inside security in the McNamara Terminal. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time but little time to spare for any delays.

    Is there enough time from BOS to DTW to MANILA: DL 159 to DL 629 on a 54-minute layover? Thanks!


    Yes, it should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. Both flights will be on concourse A of the McNamara terminal.

  • Layover time
    Jun 10, 2014
    I'm flying from day to hpn via dtw both flights are delta operated connections, delta connections, I have 90 min layover during the middle of the week in early November should I expect weather, ie snow, delays if so is 90 mins a long enough time?


    Almost definitely faster to take the Skylink. The Skylink is really fast and the station would be on the way anyway.

  • Where do I spend time in Customs?
    May 26, 2014
    Hello, I fly tomorrow from Portland ME to DTW Airport and transfer to a Toronto flight. Is my first travel leg considered national or international? Will I need to allow time in Portland to go through customs or will that all happen in Detroit where I have a 45 min connection time.


    You will go through Canadian immigration when you get to Toronto. All you have to do in DTW is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Terminal Connection: time for layover
    May 26, 2014
    Dear Sir or Madam, I am arriving in DTW from LAX by DELTA 539 and have to change the plane to DELTA 1088 to New York, EWR. I have only 40 minutes on order to change a plane and I wonder if I should go through any checking or custom? Additionally, will my checked in bags forwarded or I have to do that by myself? Thank you very much in advance for your help.


    You arrive at DTW at the McNamara Terminal, which has Concourses & gates A, B & C. A tunnel connects in the center between Concourse A (near gate 38) and Concourses B & C (at Gates C1 of the lower level). Follow signs. Only international arrivals at US Airports need to go through customs clearance. Your bags will be checked through. Your transfer time should suffice.


  • DTW connection time
    May 26, 2014
    Hello! I'm sorry if something like that was already asked and answered, I just want to double check my informations about a connecting flight in Detroit. Arriving from YUL (montreal), going to Seoul, I will have a connection in Detroit, with 1h19min to spare. Delta Flights all the way. From what I've read, I will get pre-cleared in Canada and will depart from the same terminal since I have Delta flights? Is that right? Is that enough? Thanks a lot!!


    Yes you go through US Customs Clearance at YUL and will arrive & depart at DTW's McNamara Terminal, which has Concourses A, B & C with corresponding gates. The overhead screens on arrival. will indicate flight & gate number. 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 gate 1 and 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.


    ok thanks! Should be enough time then!


  • 1 hour layover
    May 23, 2014
    I'm flying from Canada to San Francisco with a one hour layover in Detroit. Do I need to go through customs in Detroit, and is one hour enough time?


    Where in Canada are you coming from? Most major airports in Canada have US Immigration pre-clearance. If the airport you're flying from does have it, you will pre-clear US Immigration there and all you will have to do in Detroit is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If both of your flights are on Delta all their gates are connected within security.


    I'm flying from Halifax, and it looks like they do have pre-clearance: http://hiaa.ca/travel-checklist/travel-to-the-us/ Thanks for the info!


  • 52 minute connection time
    May 20, 2014
    Arriving from Las Vegas on DELTA 1389 at 8:58pm. Connecting to DELTA 4112 (Endeavor) to Ottawa, Canada at 9:50pm. Is 52 minutes enough to make the connection? This a Wednesday in early June.


    Your transfer time should suffice. However, the McNamara Terminal with its Concourses A, B & C is huge. To find out how to connect between its Concourses, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/dtw, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


    Yes, you should have enough time. You will arrive in Concourse A and depart from B or C, which are connected by an underground tunnel with moving walkway. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Do I have enough time
    May 6, 2014
    Flight arriving at 8:07 (Delta 1357) Next one leaves at 8:37 (Delta 4056/Endeavor Air) Is that enough time?


    It is enough time but it leaves very little time for delays. You will arrive in the A concourse and likely depart from the B/C concourse, which are connected by an underground tunnel inside security.


    Thank you! I will wear my running shoes.
