  • Las Vegas to MSP to Amsterdam - 55 mins layover
    May 25, 2016
    I will be flying from Las Vegas in June and only have 55 mins layover before my flight for Amsterdam leaves. Will I have enough time?

    I am flying DL2163 with one carryon arriving msp from pdx. The layover is 46 minutes and then flies out of msp to cdg on DL169. Is that enough says it is, but I am certainly not able to run.


    Yes it is possible as long as your flight from Portland is on-time.

    I would like to fly delta would a 1hr layover give me time to take my service dog out, i'd like to give her 10 minutes, have tsa pre-check


    With precheck it might maybe be possible. There's no guarantees.


    Thank you. I found a longer layover.


  • 35 minute layover for domestic to international flight!
    Apr 10, 2016
    Delta had a flight change and now I have only 35 minutes between the flight from lincoln to Minneapolis and the international flight from Minneapolis to Amsterdam. I called and now I have a choice to take an earlier flight but have 7 hours layover. Is 35 minutes doable???


    35 minutes is possible. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate and MSP isn't that big. However, obviously it leaves no time to spare if the flight from Lincoln is delayed.

    Flying from Saskatoon to Newark with 1h35m in MSP. Flying Delta for both flights, will I have any trouble making it to my gate before boarding without checked baggage, or in the case that I am forced to check my slightly larger carry on, with a checked bag?


    You should have enough time. Immigration at MSP is pretty much never crowded.


  • Clearing customs time

    I have a 1 hour 20 minute layover at MSP on an international round trip flight. Will that be enough time to clear customs and catch my connecting flight with 2 young children in tow?


    Where are you flying from and where are you flying to? What time are you arriving?


    Arrival from CDG at 12:55 and heading to SAT at 14:20 with both flights at terminal 1.


    It's probably enough time but it doesn't leave much to spare. Nominally the minimum International to Domestic connection time is 90 minutes but you can often get away with less at MSP because it doesn't see many international arrivals so immigration is rarely crowded.

    Flying delta from winnipeg. Connecting flight in minneapolis to ft myers. Do we have to claim baggage in minneapolis to get connecting flight


    You will preclear US immigration and customs in Winnipeg. You don't have to do anything with your bags in MSP. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    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.

    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.
