Hi, I am flying on Dec 13 from YVR to BWI on Delta, I have a 1 hour 7 minute layover in MSP. Do I go through customs in MSP? Is this enough time?
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in MSP is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I am flying from Fargo to Msp on Delta November 28th at 1:09 PM. I have 40 minutes to connect to my Delta flight to Amsterdamm. Will I be able to make this connection?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Will 30 min be enough lay over to catch a flight to Montreal ?
If the first flight is domestic that is enough time but it leaves no time to spare if the first flight is delayed.
I am returning a rental car and flying out of terminal 1 on Nov 17th. I have Pre check. How long do you think it will take to get from rental car through TSA pre check and to gate, with possible increased volume of holiday travel?
There's not much Holiday travel on November 17. I think you can arrive at a normal time, like an hour before your flight if you're not checking bags.
Both flights( JFK-MSP ans MSP-SEA) are from Sun country Airlines, is a 55 min transfer time in MSP enough? THANKS!
Yes, that is enough time if the flight from JFK is on-time.
Hi, I have a flight from ORD to MSP and then to YVR (Vancouver). Will I need to clear customs in MSP or when I land in YVR?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in MSP is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hey! On Dec 29th I am flying from YEG to MSP, then I'll have about 70 minute to catch my flight to AMS.

Would that be enough time, and do I need to recheck my baggage and go through customs again?
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Edmonton. All you have to do in MSP on your way to Amsterdam is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Hi there, I am doing a similar journey but would we not need to go through security in MSP even though we pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Canada?

Thank you in advance.
That is correct. The preclearance process in Canada satisfies the US's requirements for security, so your arrival into MSP is like on a domestic flight.
Thanks for the time you take out to answer these queries, much appreciated.
Hi - I will be traveling through MSP on Dec 15th (not sure if this qualifies as part of the busy holiday period?). I will be arriving from Amsterdam, NL and will need to clear customs, recheck bag and transfer to a domestic flight to Phoenix. Is two hours enough time for this process?
Dec 15th is not busy. Yes, that is enough time.
I'm flying from DCA to MSP on Delta, with a 53-minute connection time to a Delta flight to CDG. Is that enough time?
Yes, all you have to do on the way to Paris is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am going to be flying in from RAP and land at MSP. I have a 1.5 hour layover to get to my next flight which is going to Haneda Airport in Japan. Is this going to be enough time for me to get through everything?
All you have to do in MSP on your way to Tokyo is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.
Thank you kindly!
