location map for MSP airport

Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) is not part of any city but is nestled among several. The airport is surrounded by Minneapolis, St. Paul and the suburban cities of Bloomington, Eagan, Mendota Heights and Richfield.

MSP has one airfield with four runways and two terminal buildings - Terminal 1-Lindbergh and Terminal 2-Humphrey - each with adjoining parking ramps. Travelers who need to transfer from one terminal to the other use the light rail transit service. There is no pedestrian access between the buildings.

Terminal 1-Lindbergh or Terminal 2-Humphrey?

The most important piece of information you need to know when planning a trip to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport is: which terminal building should you come to - Terminal 1-Lindbergh or Terminal 2-Humphrey? The Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport is unique in that the airport's terminals are not connected by a shared roadway system. That means, if you come to the wrong terminal by anything other than the light rail transit system, you'll need to get back on the highway and drive to the correct terminal.

So plan ahead. Know which airline you (or your loved one) is flying and which terminal building it flies from. A list of airlines serving MSP can be found in the Airlines section of this Web site.
