Connection times at Salt Lake
 
I have a couple options for a summer trip. One has 35 minutes between flights and the other has 48 minutes. They will be Delta flights connecting with Skywest/Delta Connection. Both incoming flights have a 94/95% on time record. Is this possible???

I like connecting at SLC and have done it in short period of time, but I would want an hour.

There are multiple concourses and the small prop planes headed to the smaller airports leave from Concourse E. DL flights can come/go D, C, possibly even B. If you end up arriving/departing same concourse, then no problem.

Other problem is just getting off the plane. If you can sit near the door, then no big deal. If you are in the back on a large jet, just getting off can take 15 minutes.

To see what gates you (Probably) would be arriving from is to check each flight on Delta for today or tomorrow.

Gates change all the time, but if you keep checking you can get an idea of what's happening.

Hopefully, Delta wouldn't schedule it if it weren't possible.

I'm saying that, because next month I have 2 flights through SLC, with connections of about 45-50 minutes.

Getting an hour using DL through SLC is not always an option..

I am amazed how tight they do the connections, but that said I have never missed one of those 35 minute connections so I guess it works :)

Thanks for the input. I haven't finalized my plans yet, but if I do get one of these flights, I will report back on how the connection went.
