Hello there, How long before my flight would you advise that I need to arrive at the airport? I am in Minneapolis for business and want to utilise as much of my time as possible before having to depart for the airport. Thanks!!
If it's a domestic flight and you don't have bags to check, an hour is sufficient.
Hi there! I'm returning to LHR from a trip to NYC via MSP during April. The layover is 1hr12mins. I'll have check in baggage as well as carry on. Do you know if i'll need to collect checked in baggage and check it back in again? And do you think 1hr12mins is enough time? Thanks
If both flights are on the same reservation you don't havet o do anything with your bags in MSP. Just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
I'm flying with Delta from SFO to Amsterdam and have 1 hour for the connecting flight in MSP. I have 1 check-in baggage. Do I need to check out my baggage, check it in, and go again through customs? Is 1 hr enough for these?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in MSP on your way to Amsterdam is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Flying from MSP, small layover in CDG (Paris) then on to Athens. Do we have to go through customs in Paris or can we just continue to our next terminal/gate for flight to Athens? We are flying Delta/Air France on both flights.
Since you will be entering the Schengen Area, of which both France and Greece are members, you will go through Schengen Entry passport control in Paris.
Traveling from Tokyo to New York. The layover is only about an hour. Is that enough time to get through immigration, pick up bags, go through customs, then re-check my bags and make the connecting flight to New York?
It's possible. It doesn't leave hardly any time to spare though. At almost any other airport in the US this wouldn't be possible but MSP is really easy.
I'm a US citizen flying Delta HNL -> MSP -> YYZ. Where will I need to clear customs? I have a short connection in MSP so I'm hoping it's anywhere but there.
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You will go through Canadian immigration and Customs when you get to Toronto. All you have to do at MSP is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
