Once a major gateway airport for destinations in Asia, Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport is now Delta Air Lines’ second busiest hub (after Atlanta) and a hub for hometown Sun Country Airlines. The airport is about 10 miles south of downtown Minneapolis and 12 miles southwest from downtown St. Paul.
The passenger complex at Minneapolis-St. Paul airport is made up of two terminals that are about a mile apart on different sides of the airfield. Terminal 1, the Lindbergh Terminal has seven concourses labeled A-G. Terminal 2, the Humphrey Terminal has the H concourse.
Airlines in Terminal 1 are: Air Canada, Air France, Alaska, American, Delta, Denver Air Connection, KLM Royal Dutch, Spirit and United.
Airlines in Terminal 2 are: Allegiant, Condor, Frontier, Icelandair, JetBlue, Southwest and Sun Country.
Metro Blue Line trains travel between the two terminals about every 10-20 minutes, depending on time of day. The ride between the terminals is free but passengers must leave the TSA secure area to reach the train stops, which are at the ground level. Beyond the airport, passengers pay fare to continue on the Blue Line north to downtown Minneapolis and south to the Mall of America. Metro Transit bus Route 54 travels to downtown St. Paul.
Other ground transportation options leaving the airport include taxis, app-based ride services, van and shuttle services, intercity buses and car rental companies. Information about the options and where to find them in the airport is here.
Delta Air Lines flights arrive and depart MSP Terminal 1 at the A, B, C, D, F and G gates. Connecting passengers can use walkways, moving walkways and trams to reach all other Delta gates without leaving the TSA secure area.
Sun Country Airlines flights arrive and depart MSP Terminal 2 using the H gates. Connections to other Sun Country flights can be made without leaving the TSA secure area.
Minneapolis and neighboring Saint Paul are the urban core of the Twin Cities, gateway to the clean air and all of the outdoor possibilities of Minnesota. And just 19 minutes from downtown Minneapolis is the Mall of America.
When a New York newspaper in 1885 described Minnesota and Saint Paul, the state’s capital city, as “another Siberia, unfit for human habitation,” local business leaders considered that a challenge. Working with the City of Montreal, which had already established a winter carnival but couldn’t do it in 1886 due to a small pox epidemic, the Minnesotans started their own winter celebration, complete with an ice palace, a king and queen, a parade, outdoor sports events and ice sculptures. The St. Paul Winter Carnival now attracts more than 250,000 attendees annually in late January/early February. Learn more about the next carnival here.
