  • Enough time???
    Jun 27, 2016
    My friend is coming in from Europe, landing at 4:40pm. She will need to get off the plane, through customs & Pick up her checked baggage. I have her booked on a 5:45 shuttle....Do you think 4:40 to 5:45 is enough time to catch the shuttle, or should I put her on a later shuttle (7:00pm)??? Thank you in advance!!


    As long as her flight is on-time she should be able to make the 5:45 shuttle.


    Thanks for the quick reply! My fingers are crossed that she doesn't get delayed on the way out & can catch that shuttle. Here's hoping! :)

    I will be flying from Paris to MSP on Thanksgiving weekend. I have a 1 hour and 15 minutes connection in MSP until I head to DFW. I will be traveling with a carry on only. Is that enough time to go through customs and catch my flight to DFW? Also, when I am done going through customs do I have to go back through TSA or do I go straight to my gate? I don't know if this is important to know, but I will be flying from Barcelona to Paris to Minneapolis to Dallas.


    With carry-ons only I think you can make it. Yes, you will have to go through security in MSP after you clear customs.


  • International connection MSP to Amsterdam
    Jun 25, 2016
    I will be flying from MSP to AMS onnFriday with 52 minutes to make the flight to Amsterdam. Will this be sufficient? Many thanks!


    I will be arriving at MSP from Las Vegas


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Las Vegas to MSP to Amsterdam - 55 mins layover

    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?


  • short layover

    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!

    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
    Dec 21, 2015
    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.
