MSP offers non-stop service to 155 destinations, including 128 domestic and 27 international markets.

The airport is in the process of a five-year expansion and improvement plan, which will include the expansion of the size of arrival and departure facilities, constructing a new parking facility, adding four new gates at Terminal 2-Humphrey, new restaurants and retails shops.
