Transfer Domestic to Transatlantic at Minneapolis Airport - time needed?

by maria_hz

My parents-in-law are flying from Europe (Finland, to be more specific) to the US in June. For the return flight, my mother-in-law is somewhat worried about the time between connections; there is 1.5 hours between landing (flying Missoula -> Minneapolis) and the transatlantic connection (Minneapolis > Amsterdam, Holland).

Is there anything to be worried about? Is this enough time to move between (possibly) terminals and gates? They are both 60+ and my mother-in-law has a knee condition so they have to have time to walk in a normal fashion.

Thanks a lot for your help!

That is plenty of time if it is a through ticket, not needing to recheck-in.
Ask the airline for a golf cart transfer.

You might wish to view the web site for the Minneapolis airport with your mother-in-law. That way, she will have a little more familiarity with the airport, and you should be able to research any questions before they make the return trip. The web site is: www.mspairport.com. Gary

You can alert the airline to the situation and request either a wheelchair or an electric cart. ( I missed a connection in Minneapolis one time- had knee surgery and requested a cart, but the cart's battery ran down and I missed my connection by just a few minutes- I doubt that happens often, though) They should have enough time, but if they want to be perfectly comfortable, have time for a restroom break, etc., I'd request a wheelchair and relieve their anxiety.

The web site I mentioned earlier has links specifically dealing with both wheelchairs and cart service. Gary

You will want to check and make sure the domestic arrival gate is inside the same security ring as the international departure gate. I have never flown from there, but there are some airports that have such gates in different security rings.

It they are inside the same ring then I would be very comfortable with 1.5 hours between fligths. Even if they aren't I doubt Minneapolis airport is that huge that 1.5 hours layoff won't be enough; since you won't have to check bags but just walk through the security check point.

It is a pretty big airport James. It is NorthWest's hub. Lots of moving sidewalks and some decent food.
NorthWest(KLM) Missoula to Amsterdam uses the same terminal which is L.
Contact NW in the US and KLM in Europe, or their travel agent, to request a distance wheelchair, the airport itself won't help you with that

There are 2 terminals. The Humphrey, which is for small airlines and charter airline, such as ATA, Sun Country. The main terminal, which is the Lindbergh terminal that is used by the larger airlines. There is an underground light rail connection between the terminals which located about a mile apart.

If you are connecting from a flight in the Lindbergh terminal, you will not need to clear security again. But if you are going from terminal to terminal you will need to go clear security again. So unless they are going from terminal to terminal, they should have plenty of time.

Thanks all of you for your help!
I forget what airline they are flying in on, but the one to Amsterdam is KLM.
Checking the website is a good idea, will do that.

Travel Tips for Minneapolis

First of all, I think St....

by msp_ssa

First of all, I think St. Anthony Falls and the Stone Arch Bridge is a good place to start when visiting Minneapolis, since this is where the city started. Then a drive along Lake St. offers a lot as to where Minneapolis is heading. Restaurants and shops galore, if you can't find what you're looking for here then Minneapolis probably doesn't have it. My fondest memories of Minneapolis are from the pick up games I used to play in thoughout the city's beautiful green parks. Whether it was 2 people per side or 15, you could count on a multitude of accents and languages being shouted out from player to player. Not something most people associate with the Upper Midwest. Racing through puddles left from the winter snow in early spring to crunchy red, yellow and orange leaves in the fall, the spectrum of weather conditions matched the diversity of the players nicely.

Architecture: Thrivent Financial Building

by yooperprof

This 17 story glass structure houses the HQ of the a large Lutheran-oriented financial services company. This is the side of the building with windows; the other side presents an almost blank wall (17 stories high) to the street! It's a 1981 design from one of the studios of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, located at the corner of 6th Street and Fourth Ave.

Vera's Garden

by yooperprof

Vera's Garden is a community-space maintained in association with Vera's cafe, right next door. It's located on the embankment overlooking one of Minneapolis's rail-trails, on a former Soo line railway bed. Since 2002, volunteers have spent hundreds of hours annually turning this slope into a beautiful urban garden.

At Lyndale and 29th.

University of Minnesota Gophers Sports

by Aprl24

The University of Minnesota has a great athletic department and it's sports teams are definately worth seeing. On any given night or day during the school year, you can catch a Gopher game. Doesn't matter what sport - it's just a fun time and a great way to see a different part of Minnesota.

The U of M campus is lively, has numerous restaurants and shops for before or after the game, and there is plenty of parking in ramps and lots.

M-I-N-N-E-S-O-T-A, Minnesota! Minnesota! Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyy Gophers!

In the Heart of the City

by JD3E3X1

For a quiet picnic or afternoon walk by the river, check out Nicollet Island. It's easily accessed by foot, car, or bike. The island is sitting in literally the heart of the city, the Mississippi River, and offers a great view of the river, surrounding wildlife, and urban skyline. The history if the island is deep and worth checking into; I can't site specifics here, but it was a burial place for the first inhabitants of the island. The bridges that span the river are well worth walking. This is one of my all-time favorite spots in the city that I love.
