  • 1hr10min layover

    Hi, my family and I are traveling from Calgary to Minneapolis in December with Delta, and then continuing on to Amsterdam with KLM. We have a 1 hour and 10 mins between the flights (they say that there in the same terminal right now). Will that be enough time for us and our checked bags to get through?


    Actually, I just checked and both our flights are with delta


    Yes, that is plenty of time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary.


  • Is a 55 minute connection enough?

    Hi, I am travelling from YWG Winnipeg to LHR London with only a 55 minute stop in MSP Minneapolis. Will this be enough time? I will have 2 checked in bags also but I am hoping that I will not see them until i land in London. Any help will be greatly appreciated


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Winnipeg. All you have to do in MSP is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • Is 36 min Layover enough?

    I'm traveling Delta, Omaha > Minneapolis and then Minneapolis > Great Falls, MT. Is a 36 minute lay over with Delta enough? Are the flights in the same terminal? Thanks for your help!


    Yes, all Delta flights in Minneapolis are in the Lindbergh Terminal. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time if your Omaha flight is on-time, but it obviously leaves little time to spare if it's delayed.

    Please describe your itinerary in better detail. Where are you flying from and to? What airlines are you flying?


  • Layover 55 minutes, flying from San Diego to Amsterdam (DELTA)
    Apr 13, 2015
    Hello, I am flying from San Diego to Minneapolis, where I will have a layover of 55 minutes to catch my connecting flight to Amsterdam. I'm officially flying with KLM, but both flights are executed by Delta. I am a little worried, as I am afraid I will not have enough time, especially if I still have to go through security. I suppose I will not have to do anything with my bags, as that will be taken care of in San Diego, but will I have to take the concourse tram and do a security check again? Thanks for advising.


    You will not have to go through security in Minneapolis. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time if your first flight is on-time.


  • enough time?
    Mar 27, 2015
    I will be flying into msp at 8:00 am with a two and a half hour layover. Would I have enough time to meet a friend at the hot dish restaurant for a drink, re enter through security and get to my Delta gate?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Delta international flight

    I fly in to MSP on Delta from DFW at 10:35 and then fly out of MSP on Deltas at 11:32 to Narita Japan. Delta uses only Terminal one is that correct? So I just have to walk over to my next gate and not have to change terminals?


    Yes, Delta uses the Lindbergh terminal for all flights. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • International layover just 90 mins

    What is the minimum time needed for processing Immigration, Baggage, Customs, Drop-off and Security to catch a flight to Boise after arrival from London Heathrow; is 90 mins enough?


    Yes, 90 minutes is the minimum time.


  • Connecting between BOS and Billings
    Nov 12, 2013
    Which terminals does Delta use for incoming flights from Boston and outgoing flights to Billings? Is there a tram that connects the two terminals? Is 50 minutes enough layover time?


    All Delta flights are in the Lindbergh terminal and all gates are connected beyond security. 50 minutes is enough time.
