  • Coming from Japan and connection in MSP
    Jun 17, 2016
    Coming from Tokyo landing in MSP - flight is already delayed.- was suppose to land at 1:30 and connection to leave for YWG at 3:05 - with delay it will be 2:00 landing in MSP. Will 1 hour b enough to clear customs and connect?


    It's not impossible if things go smoothly once you arrive.


  • 31min with 7 people?

    Will 31min Connection work with 7 people? IN MSP?


    If both flights are domestic Delta flights, yes, it is possible.


  • Saskatoon to New Orleans
    Jun 9, 2016
    I land in MSP at 8:47 AM June 16th on a Delta flight and I'm checking a bag. Will I have to get my bag and then clear US customs before my next Delta flight at 10:10? Will I make it? Any tips to help me make it?


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


  • YQR - MSP - SFO 1hr27 minute connection
    Jun 9, 2016
    We have a 1hr 27 minute layover with Delta. Will need to clear US customs since you can't pre-clear in Regina. Will this be enough time? We won't have checked bags.


    That should be just about enough time.

    Flight 2087 leaves MCI and arrives at MSP at 1045. Flight 5068 leaves to Bismark ND in 30 min. Is this enough time on 22 June? If I miss it what then?


    30min should be enough time. If you miss your flight ask the person at the counter if there are seats available on DL4517 that leaves at 1:18pm. If your bags make it on the plane and you didn't call Bismark airport if needed to hold your bags. Your bags may get lost just a warning.

    Hi, we are planning a trip from Rome to San Antonio via MSP. The layover time is 1:57. We will have checked pets on board. Is this enough time to get everyone checked through the system?


    Yes about 2hr should be enough time in MSP.


  • Connecting from Canada
    Jun 4, 2016
    Let me make sure I've got this right: If I catch a flight in Montreal (going thru US Customs there), landing in Minneapolis (and going on to connecting flights within the US), I do NOT have to re-check my bags in MSP? I can just walk to the connecting gate?


    Yes will only have to go through customs in Montreal. If it's all on the same ticket and not separate tickets you will NOT have to recheck your bags.

  • Canada to MSP to ATL - 70 min layover
    May 23, 2016
    I will be flying in from Edmonton on a Saturday and only have an 1 hour 10 min layover before my flight for ATL leaves. Will I have enough time to get through customs and everything? I will have my 18 month old daughter with me and need to have time to change her and possibly grab food. Any help is greatly appreciated!


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Edmonton. All you have to do in MSP is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • Connecting flight Chicago midway to San Antonio
    May 19, 2016
    I have a connecting flight from Chicago midway to San Antonio. I stop in MSP with 45mins. Is this enough time??? I have terminal 1 when I land and when I leave to San Antonio


    Yes, should be plenty of time, as long as your flight is on time or about on time.


  • 1h 20min layover
    May 19, 2016
    Hi I am travelling from Saskatoon (YXE) to Washington (IAD) with a 1h 20min layover in Minneapolis. I am wondering whether that is enough time to catch my connecting flight? I know I would have to go through customs and I have never been to MSP so I am wondering if there would be guidance regarding routes to security and to my next gate?


    . If you fly from somewhere outside the US or Canada to an airport in the US or Canada, you will have to collect and recheck your luggage no matter where you're going on your second flight


  • Coming from UK - layover time enough?
    May 11, 2016
    Flying in from London (LHR) on my way to Austin (AUS), there's a 1h 43min layover at MSP - is this enough time to disembark, go through customs and passport control, and get to the connecting flight?


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • 1.16 enough time?
    May 12, 2016
    Flying from Amsterdam to Phoenix with a change in MSP, layover is 1.16. Is that enough time??


    No, that is below the minimum recommended international to domestic connection time.


    Ok so how have they been allowed to sell me that flight???


    I don't know - they shouldn't have.


    What is the recommended time?
