Leaving from Portland, OR and going to Montreal, Quebec on Delta airlines, with a 50 minute layover at MSP. Traveling with a pet as a carry-on, and concerned about time. Will I pre-clear Canadian customs in Portland?
All you have to do in MSP is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in MSP. You go through Canadian Immigration and Customs in Quebec. There is no Canadian Preclearance in the US. You have enough time.
I'm leaving from Calgary, AB and going to St. Louis, Missouri, with a 50 minute connection time in Minneapolis, is that going to be enough time to get through?
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. All you have to do in MSP is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate assuming both flights are on Delta. You have enough time.
Arrive gate F16 tomorrow @ 9:10 AM, depart from gate C25 @ 10AM.....all Delta.
Your Best guess re: average time it takes to walk between gates. A couple of us have walking difficulties.
Thanks so much.
It will take 10-15 minutes.
This is the first time I've flown into MSP. I am arriving from IAH going to Philadelphia. I see I arrive at Term A and Depart Term 1. Since I've never flown in and looking at the Map of your airport I do not see Term 1. Could you give me some clarifications. I appreciate all you do, Thank you in advance.
Terminal A is your departure terminal from IAH. All you have to do in MSP is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in the Lindbergh Terminal.
Thank you so much!!
In early December I am flying from HND(Tokyo) to Toronto with a 52 min stopover in MSP. Originally the layover was supposed to be 2 1/2 hours but just found out Delta changed the MSP-YZZ flight recently giving me just a 52 minute stop over at MSP. Can anyone tell me if that's possible to make the connection?

They did offer to change the flight for free but the other possibilities tack on an extra five or six hours to the total travel time so I'm really reluctant to change it especially since I will be travelling alone with my three-year-old daughter. Any advice would be much appreciated!
That's not possible. You have to change to one of the other connections.
Flying from Vancouver BC to Atlanta, GA with a 1hr 8 min layover in MSP. Will I have enough time to get through US customs and make my connecting flight?

Flying from Vancouver, BC to MSP with 1hr 8min layover and then connecting flight to ATL. Will I have time to get through US customs and make my connection?
How much time does it take between these two terminals?
Those gates are both in the same terminal. You can walk between them in less than 10 minutes.
what is the time it takes to go from thermal 1gate b2 to c5 can it be done in 20 minutes
Yes, that's possible if everything goes smoothly.
My parents fly into MSP from Amsterdam. They will have to go through border security and then re-check their bag before they fly to GTF Montana. They have a 3 hour layover and don't speak English. Will they have enough time? Thank you
Yes, that should be plenty of time.
