    Flying Delta from Tucson to MSP. We have 50 min. to get to Delta flight to BMI. Is this enough time?


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


  • Connection time between GRR and LAX fligths
    Sep 6, 2016
    Delta changed my itinerary cutting down my layover time in MSP from an hour to 34 minutes. I am flying in to MSP from GRR and on to LAX from MSP with 34 minutes time between both. Both flights are Delta. Will that be sufficient time to make the connection? Thanks!


    Yes, that is just enough time if the flight from Grand Rapids is on-time.


  • Travel time from gate C16 to D3
    Sep 6, 2016
    Is 30 minutes sufficient layover time to walk from MSP gate C16 to D3? Flight from RIC to HNL with MSP connection. Expected worst case is gates C16 to D3. Thanks.


    That is just enough time to if the flight from Richmond is on-time.

    I am flying delta to Minneaplolis then switching airlines to Florida do I need to recheck bags?


    What airline are you flying to Florida? Where are you flying into Minneapolis from?


    Winnipeg to Minnespolis ( delta -clear customs in wpg) min to Fort Lauderdale - air Canafa 70 minutes to connect!!


    Air Canada doesn't fly from Minneapolis to Ft. Lauderdale. Please double check your reservation.


    You are correct . I am sorry about that! I phoned Delta ,they say no worries all will work fine. Thx


  • Customs

    I am wondering if my fiancé an I will have enough time to go through customs and get to our next flight. We leave Bismarck and get to MSP at 6:26 am our flight from MSP leaves at 7:10 am for Cancun.


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in MSP on your way to Cancun is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Afternoon connection

    Flying round trip BWI-Minot. Flying the BWI-MSP route with Spirit and the MSP-MOT route with Delta, tickets booked separately. 1 hour 27 min connection on the way there and 1 hour 50 min connection on return. Are those enough?


    With checked bags, no chance. With no checked bags that's just enough time. You will have to change terminals in MSP which is somewhat difficult to do.


    I will have to change terminals? The MSP Airport website and a flight tracker tell me that Spirit flies into MSP at Concourse E of Term 1 and Delta Connection flies into Concourses A&B of Term 1. If it's the same terminal, can I make the connection? With checked bags.


    Sorry didn't mean to name myself Andy just been looking thru some older forums and saw the name. for some reason wrote it as my name lol. but id appreciate ur help andy or zap


    Sorry, you are right, Spirit is the only Low-Cost Carrier to use Terminal 1, the rest use Terminal 2. This is still a bit difficult with checked baggage.


  • Enough time to clear immigration and recheck luggage?
    Sep 6, 2016
    We are flying in on a Monday in September with Delta from Amsterdam, mid afternoon, and then on to Phoenix with Delta. Layover time is 1hr 15mins - do we have enough time to clear immigration/customs and recheck luggage?


    Sorry - should have mentioned that both flights appear to arrive/depart from Terminal 1. Thanks.


    And we are travelling Business if that helps? Thanks.


    Flying business class that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    I have read for business, but for economy class? Would it be possible to catch the flight with all immigration and baggage re-check if we are flying to Denver? Thank you in advance!


  • Delta -KEF to MSP-to Delta LAX with 1:40 time. Possible?
    Aug 19, 2016
    Need to know if we have enough connecting time coming back from KEF to LAX


    Yes, that should be just enough time if the flight from Reykjavik is on-time.


    What is the minimum connection time to make the LAX flight?


    85-90 minutes is the bare minimum


  • International: Transiting MSP to PDX
    Aug 17, 2016
    I will be flying from Rome FCO and will have to clear passport control/customs. I will only have checked luggage. I will have 1 hr 17 minutes to make my Alaska Air flight to PDX. Is this possible? Many thanks in advance.


    With checked luggage this is a difficult connection.


    Oops, I meant only carry on luggage. Is that doable?


    Yes, then that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • LAX to MSP to KEF
    Aug 15, 2016
    1 hour 20 minute connection time enough?


    If both flights are on Delta on the same reservation, then yes, that is enough time. If it's not that you need to post what airlines you are flying.


    Delta there and back.


    You have enough time. All you will need to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, which likely be in Concourse G.


  • international with terminal change

    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
    Jul 24, 2016
    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
    Jul 23, 2016
    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.
