Connection time

Connection time

We are flying Delta to MSP landing at 4:56 pm and have inter National flight to Heathrow departing at 5:54. With an hour connection time, will that be enough? Don't have gate info yet but does anyone know how far from domestic to international Gates?

Assuming your incoming flight is on time, you will have no problem at all. International and domestic gates are all integrated. You do not need to leave airside, just go to your next gate. Large but very efficient airport. You should also be able to look at 'typical' gates for your flights on other dates to get an idea.

Have fun.

Here's a handy map of the airport. I think you will be fine. There's a People Mover Tram along the C gates, and moving sidewalks along G.


If you haven't downloaded the Delta App, it's a handy tool. It will track your checked luggage if you have any, to make sure it follows you along your journey. Try tracking your flights a few days before to see if there is a pattern of what gate that incoming flight lands, and where your departure gates departs.

If all else fails, maybe have handy a list of possible connections to get you to Heathrow via Delta via Detroit, Atlanta, or NYC airports later that day, if you don't make your planned flight.
