My wife and I must move from terminal A (A3) to terminal B (B10) in a short period of time. She cannot walk quickly. How long is the walk? Is there a need to take a bus?
hello my children under 12 year old travel in the unite states need passport ? thank you
Children do not need any identification to travel domestically. Children of any age need a passport to travel internationally.
I'm picking up relatives and need to know where to pick them up.
International flights from non-precleared airports arrive in Terminal A. Where are they coming from?
Do skycaps at PHL accept cash for airline luggage charges
It depends on the airline, but most airlines to NOT accept cash for checked bags.
I'm flying to Mesa AZ on Friday the 28th. Flight at 5 am. Anyone have any idea what wait times are like for Delta in the early morning?
Delta does not fly to Mesa, Arizona nor do they fly nonstop from Philadelphia to anywhere in Arizona. Security wait times very early in the morning are generally short everywhere.
how far from a to c
In Philadelphia you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. C is less than a 10 minute walk from the security checkpoint in A. You have enough time for your connection if you have at least 90 minutes.
thank u very much for your quick response cheers
I have a friend coming into Philly from Amsterdam at 1.35pm on Tues Aug 13th. Where would be the best place for me to meet her after she gets her bags and goes through customs?
She will arrive in the lower level of Terminal A.
After arriving from BCN in PHIL, do I collect my bags, go through customs, check my bags for next flight and go through security?
Yes, that is the procedure. You will go through US Immigration first though.
I will be travelling from Ottawa with AA and will have 2 hrs before my flight to Doha. Do i need to pick my checked luggage and recheck them. Kinda confused when we pick the luggage and when we dont while connecting through US airports.
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa. If both tickets are on the same reservation all you have to do in PHL is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate (likely on the shuttle bus).
I will be arriving from Ottawa with AA connecting to Doha on a 2 hr layover. Do i need to pick my checked luggage and recheck them again? Kinda confused when do we pick the luggage and when we dont need to while connecting through US airports
