we will have a 4+ hr layover at MSP in early June...before our flight to Amsterdam...any ideas how we can spend the time? besides eating, drinking or sleeping!
I'm flying in from Toronto with a layover in MSP for 2hr 50min to Honolulu. Will this be enough time? Also flying with Delta both flights, will I have to recheck my baggage or go through customs again when I am in MSP?

Thank you very much
That is plenty of time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in MSP is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I will arrive on Air Canada flight from Toronto at 3:52 p.m. and depart on a Delta flight at 5:45.
Will that be enough time to change gates and get through security?
Do you have checked bags or not?
Never been to Msp airport and have a flight to las vegas on delta with only 45 minute layover. WIll I be able to find where to go??
Where are you flying into MSP from?
from either Minot ND or Bismarck ND
That is enough time. MSP isn't a hard airport to navigate. Everything will be in the same terminal, just follow the signs to your departure gate.
thank you!!
Hi! We are a family of 3. Flight is from Tokyo HND to MSP then YXE. Would we need to clear up immigration and have our baggages pass thru customs in MSP? Thanks.
Yes, in MSP you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security.
I am flying from Iceland to Boise with a 90 minute layover in Minneapolis. Both flights will be on Delta. Is this enough time to go through immigration and security again.
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I land at 10:45 and boarding for my next flight is 10:40. Any chance I make my flight?
What is the actual departure time for your second flight - not when it starts boarding?
IS 31 mns layover enough to change planes coming from BWI to MSP and leaving to SEA?
It's possible. It obviously leaves no time to spare if the flight from BWI is delayed.
I am flying from Vancouver to Pittsburgh with a 1hr 45 min layover at Minneapolis. Is this enough time to make the connection. I have a British passport
Yes, that is plenty of time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in MSP.
Flying in from Narita, Tokyo to MSP, via Delta, arrive at 1320. Connecting from MSP to Windsor Locks Connecticut, via Delta, departing at 1508. Is the layover of 1h 48min sufficent to clear customs, security etc. And will I need to pick up my checked-in luggages at MSP, or its direct to Windsor Locks?
Yes, in MSP you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and then go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.
