  • international with terminal change
    Jul 29, 2016
    Planning a trip to Iceland and the return flights have an international flight arriving in terminal 2/Icelandair at 6:05p and a domestic connection back home in terminal 1 at 7:40p. Not planning to check luggage. Is this enough time to change terminals and make connecting flight? Thanks!


    If you are already checked in for your second flight, this would be barely enough time if the Icelandair flight is on-time.


    Thanks for the feedback - will look for an option with a little more wiggle room.


  • London-MSP-LAX Whats the procedure?
    Jul 27, 2016
    Flying in from London Heathrow via Delta for connection at MSP. 2 hour 20 mins stopover. Then connect for LAX. Is this enough time to make the connection? Do we go through US immigration? Do we need to collect our luggage and then have recheck this for our connecting flight?


    You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk right after, go through security and to your departure gate. you have enough time.


  • Fastest from B6 to G2

    See title


    Take the "shortcut" walkway over from C to G and then the G walkway up to G2. Don't bother with trying to take the tram up C, it's slow.


  • Paris to MSP to Phx

    Flying home from Paris to Phoenix with 1 hour 40 minute layover in Minneapolis; both flights Delta. Will we have to go through customs in Minneapolis? Will we have enough time? We will have one checked bag.


    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, then go through security and your departure gate. You should have enough time if the flight from Paris is on-time.

    Hi there, Will be leaving from Toronto, all flights are on Delta and on one ticket. Have a 49m layover, is this enough time? Will be checking in bags in Toronto, and pre-clearing US customs in Toronto and was told bags will be checked through to my final destination.


    Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Toronto is on-time. All you have to do in MSP is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    fastest way to go from G22 to A5


    Take the shortcut walkway over to C and then to A.

    I will be travelling from Iceland with Delta and have a 1 hour 20 min layover before connecting on with Delta and going on to Las Vegas, will this layover time be sufficient enough for me to clear customs and make my connecting flight???


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly


    Thank you for the information.

    Considering booking a return flight from Calgary YYC to STL by way of MSP on Delta. Is 50 minutes sufficient time to clear customs and change terminals if necessary?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary and all Delta flights are in the same Terminal in MSP. All you have to do in MSP is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


    Thank you so much, you are very helpful!


  • Delta then Airfrance
    Jul 11, 2016
    We are travelling through MSP - coming from Wichta using Delta and Heading to France using Air France . we have 50 minutes. Can we make it?and would our luggage make it?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Any idea if the luggage would make it?


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Connection time
    Jul 10, 2016
    Arriving 8-2016 from Tokyo on Delta with 1:45 domestic connection on another Delta flight. Is this sufficient time for connection


    Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Tokyo is on-time. MSP is a very uncongested and efficient airport to make a connection at.


  • How to re-check luggage after custom
    Jul 4, 2016
    We will arrive with Delta from Amsterdam to Minneapolis and will continue to Fairbanks with Delta. How do we re-check the luggage after custom? Is there a special re-check desk?


    Yes, there is a recheck desk where you can drop your bags right after you clear customs. You will then go through security and to your departure gate.


  • Term 2. To Term 1
    Jun 29, 2016
    Arriving on Iceair at Term 2 and realistically have one hour and a half to do the Intl arrival drill and make it to Term 1 for last flight of the night on AA. Have TSA Prechk and fast mover, Can I make this and is it faster to take a cab or the light rail between terminals ?


    With precheck and no checked bags you can do this. With checked bags I don't think it will be possible for you to get your bags to AA before the cutoff. A cab won't take you - you have to take the light rail, which slows you down (but the light rail is a much more direct route than the road route - which takes 15 to 20 minutes).


    This. Connection is three hours on paper, but unfortunately. Iceair is consistently 1-2 hrs late every night. I have never flown with them before and already know this is the last time. I'm screwed.


  • Connection LAS- MSP to MSP-Amsterdam (52 minutes)
    Jun 29, 2016
    will be flying from MSP to AMS onnFriday with 52 minutes to make the flight to Amsterdam. Will this be sufficient? Many thanks! I will bevarriving at msp from las vegas


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in MSP is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thanks! Do I need to collect and re-check in my luggage?


    No, you do not. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.


    Thanks so much for responding to my queries so expeditiously!


    In general, may I ask how far ( in walking time ) between arrival gate to departure gate for Amsterdam? I am going from LAS and only have around 50 min for connecting flight to Amsterdam, sunday, at MSP. I just wonder if my flight gets there later than the scheduled time, how much time do I need to board the flight to amsterdam on time. Thanks Marcel to ask the question that I would also like to ask and Thanks ZAP for your helpful answers here.


    The gates should not be more than a 10 minute walk or 2 or 3 minute jog apart.


    Great ! Thank you again!


  • Connection time sufficient?
    Jun 24, 2016
    my son and family are flying home and only have 45 min to make connection. With an 18 mo old and potentially short fuse they want to expedite the journey home from HI. Is 45 min sufficient for MSP-CID connection?


    Sorry I forgot to add i'd be using Delta for this itin.


    If the first flight is domestic, then yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.

    We are flying from Regina with 1st stopover at MSP. We have 1 hr 14 m to catch connection to New York. We will have to go through customs as we can't pre-clear in Regina. I've never been to MSP. Will we have enough time to clear customs, etc. Where do I go to find my checked bag? Thanks as this is all new to me!


    The baggage claim is right after you go through US Immigration. The process in MSP is very quick and simple. You have enough time if your flight from Regina is on-time.


    Thank you!!
