  • How much time do I need at Immigration office?
    Jun 29, 2015
    Hi, I'm flying from Frankfurt, Germany, to MSP and from there to Chicago Midway with Sun Country Airlines. At MSP I have to go through Immigration office due to my immigrant visa activation. I'll have a lay over of 2h 45Min, will that be enough time for the registration at the immigration office and will I catch my flight to Midway then?


    It should be possible. You can check in for your Sun Country flight online before you leave Germany to save some time. Both flights will be in the Humphrey Terminal.

    Hi, I will be arriving through delta flight at 6:10 pm from YXE and my next flight leaves to Amsterdam at 7:30 pm which is delta flight again. Do you guys think I have enough time to make this connection.


    That should be enough time. Because Saskatoon does not have US Immigration preclearance, in Minneapolis you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.


  • Connection in Minneapolis from Vancouver to Atlanta
    Jun 15, 2015
    Hi I have a connection in Minneapolis from Vancouver, Canada to Atlanta, and I have 50 minutes to make the connection. I'm wondering what the possibility of flights from vancouver to minneapolis being delayed is, and if I have enough time to make my connecting flight to Atlanta?


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. Your flight could be delayed up to 25 minutes and you'd still have a good chance of making your Atlanta flight. If it is delayed more and you miss it, Delta has lots of flights from MSP to Atlanta.


  • Do I go thru customs at Amsterdam?
    Jun 10, 2015
    I am flying from Omaha to Venice with stops in Minneapolis and Amsterdam. I have 1 hour to switch planes in Amsterdam. Will I need to go thru customs at this point?


    In Amsterdam you will go through Schengen passport control before entering the pier to board your flight to Venice. You don't have to do anything with your baggage.

    Hello, I am flying in to MSP from Iceland on Iceland Air, arriving 6:05pm. I would like to then take a flight leaving at 7:40pm on Delta (booked as a separate ticket). Would this be enough time to clear customs and change terminals if I only have carry-on luggage and sit near the front of the Iceland Air plane?


    My arrival is on a Sunday night in August.


    With Carry-on only that would probably be sufficient, but depends on the Icelandair flight arriving on-time. To save time check in online for your Delta flight before leaving Iceland.

  • MSP - LAX 1hour connection
    Jun 2, 2015
    Hi I'm planning to book a flight with Sun County AIrlines from Lansing to LAX via MSP. Connection is of 1 hour 5 minutes at 1:45 pm. Is this enough time to clear through customs, etc. I am from Australia and have no idea how much time it will take to get around the airports.


    You do not go through Customs when flying on flights within the United States. All you will have to do in MSP is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in the Humphrey Terminal. You will go through security in Lansing and will not have to go through security again in MSP.


  • From Amsterdam to San Antonio
    May 28, 2015
    I am arriving to MSP from Amsterdam. My final destination is San Antonio, TX. I have 1h 25 min between the arrival and the departure. Is it enough time to clear the customs and check in? Thanks


    You will already be checked in for your flight to San Antionio. In Minneapolis you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, and go through security. You should have enough time (barely) if your flight from Amsterdam is on-time.


  • YYZ to MSP and then connecting dlight
    May 10, 2015
    Hi I am flying from Japan to YYZ and then after 16 hrs of layover at YYZ, i make a flight to MSP. I heard that I can go through US custom at YYZ. Do I do that as soon as I land or right before I depart to MSP? Also at MSP, I need to swith canadian airline to delta. I have 1 hr layover. Is it enough time for me to pick up the laggage and then check into the second flight? Thanks for your advice!


    You will go through US Customs right before you depart to MSP. Canadian Airlines went bankrupt 15 years ago. Are you flying Air Canada from YYZ to MSP? If you purchased two separate tickets and have checked bags, 1 hour is NOT enough time for your transfer in MSP.


    Thank u for ur reaponse, Sir! Yes my mistake... I am taking air canada and then delta. So glad I checked here and got the advice before I made my reservation. I am going to make flight areangements to make sure I have enough time to do everything. Thank u again! So helpful!

    I'm flying from Edmonton, Canada and Lima is my final destination. I have a 1h 15 min layover in Minneapolis. I can pass US security and customs in Canada, so I still wonder if my layover is enough to catch my flight to Atlanta (my second layover). Is it enough? Maybe this is out off topic, but do you know if I have to pass security and customs in Atlanta?


    Yes, that should be plenty of time in Mineapolis - all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. In Atlanta all you have to do is take the Plane train from your arrival concourse to concourse E or F where you will depart. There us no US Immigration when exiting the country.

    Delta flight Thursday pm from Columbus CMH and connecting to Amsterdam AMS with just 60min connection time. Would this be sufficient/do I need to check bags again and immigration?


    There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Connection to Washington
    May 5, 2015
    Leaving YXE at 530am connecting in MSP for Washington DC, have 1 10 min. layover. Is that enough time to clear customs.


    That should be enough time. There will be no lines for immigration at MSP that early in the morning.


  • YQR to MSP to PHL = 87mins to clear customs?
    May 4, 2015
    Hi on June 20th the only way to get from YQR to PHL is with a tight connection in MSP. Leave YQR & land MSP @ 8:49am then depart to PHL @ 10:16am. Is this enough time? Will have check bag


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will probably be the only international arrival at that time of the morning in MSP so immigration and customs should be a breeze.

    Hi, I am travelling from Paris to Milwaukee the 11th of May, with a 1h45 layover in Minneapolis. The first flight is performed by AirFrance (AF 0694) and the second one is performed by Delta AirLine (AF8732). Will I have enough time to get to my next flight ? Is it likely to have a lot of waiting at US immigration ? And will I have to claim my bags in Minneapolis and re-check them for the flight to Milwaukee ? If I need to re-check my bags, is it easy to find the place where I must leave the bags ? Thanks.


    1 hr 45 minutes should be enough time. Yes, in Minneapolis you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk that will be immediately after customs.

    Arriving KL 6683 OKC-MSP leaving 1:05 minutes later to Amsterdam MSP-AMS KL 6058. Do I have to change terminals, will I make this connection?


    Both flights will be operated by Delta and be in the Lindbergh terminal. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.
