  • Enough time to connect?

    Our Delta flight from Regina was just changed to only give us a 25 minute layover before leaving for Florida?! Might that be a mistake? Do we go through customs there?


    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration and Customs in MSP. That connection is impossible. You need to contact Delta or your travel agent to be rebooked on a later flight to Florida.

    I am traveling from Saskatoon to Msp on dl4194 operated by Endeavor Air with arriving @ 9, then a 1hr 10min layover before continuing on to cancun on dl327 @ 10:10. Saskatoon apparently does not pre clear for us customs. Do I have enough time and will I have to collect my checked luggage.


    Yes, you should barely have enough time. Yes, you will have to collect your luggage to go through US customs then recheck it at the transfer desk.

    Coming on Delta Flight form Madison and arriving at 4:36a - connecting Delta Flight departing to Paris at 5:15P will I have enough time to get to connecting flight (42 minutes)? Should I pick up my luggage and recheck? Thakns


    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? What do I have to do at MSP? Immigration, claim my bags, customs, re-check my bag at transfer desk, go through security and then go to my departure gate? Any tips?


    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, 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.

    All Delta flights use the same terminal, the Lindbergh terminal and all gates in the Lindbergh terminal are connected inside security.
