    I will be flying from Winnipeg, Canada to Brisbane, Australia. My connecting flights are Minneapolis then Los Angeles. I am flying Delta for all flights. Will I need to pick up my bags and go through customs/immigration in Minneapolis or Los Angeles? I only have 1 hour layover for both my connecting flights....will this be enough time?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Winnipeg. You will not have to go through Immigration or touch your baggage again until you get to Australia. Your connections allow enough time as long as your flights are on-time.

     

    Thank you very much! I am just wondering..... how do you know all of this? Do you work for the airport? Thank you :)

     

    I'm an experienced traveler and former airline employee.

     

    Well thank you for sharing your knowledge :) All the best to you!

    Hello, im a non American who will be flying from LAX to MSP. I will have 70 min until my flight to AMS departs. (everything with Delta) Will this be enough time? What should i do so i don't miss my flight? I assume i don't have to do anything with my previously checked baggage, they will make sure it goes along with me?

     

    Yes, all you have to do in MSP is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All Delta gates are connected inside security. You should have plenty of time.

    You don't have to do anything with your baggage. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    Hi. I will be flying Amsterdam(AMS)-Minneapolis(MSP)-austin(AUS). I arrive at MSP 12:16pm and my flight to Austin leaves at 1:36pm. Will 1 hour and 20 minutes be enough time?

    Yes, you have the procedure correct. You should have enough time but do not have much time to spare.

    hello, I will be flying through MSP from Vancouver Canada and onwards to Amsterdam with Delta airlines all the way through. My connection time in MSP is 52 minutes and i'm wondering what my chances are of making this connection.? I am flying on Dec 23

     

    At Vancouver AP go through U.S. Customs clearance - arriving at MSP as a 'domestic arrival'. Once you understand the layout of the gate areas /concourses, you will make your transfer in time. Therefore, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/msp, click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down past the map to "Lindbergh Terminal, and read details of 'upper level' (as Delta is in all concourses, except Concourse E.

     

    Yes, you have enough time if your first flight is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    My daughter is flying from Paris to MSP on Delta/Air France. When she clear Passport and Customs, she will have to re-check her bag with Delta. Will she have to go through Security again to reach her connecting flight to SLC?

     

    Yes, any time you go through immigration, if you are connecting to another flight, you have to go through immigration afterwards.

     

  • From Jefferson bus to Delta check in

    Can one easily get from the bus to the check in? How?

     

    MSP has 2 terminals T1 Lindbergh & T2 Humphrey. The Jefferson Lines scheduled bus (visit: jeffersonlines.com) stop at the Lindbergh Terminal's Transit Center. Then take the tram and arrive at the Lindbergh Terminal's Tram Level; then proceed to the departures level. However, if you depart from the Humphrey Terminal you must take the light rail transit from the Lindbergh Terminal.
