  • Enough Layover time?
    Jan 27, 2014
    Next week I'll be flying from Brussels, Belgium to Philiadelphia and have a 2h 15min layover to get my flight to New York. Will this be enough time? I'm travelling with US Airways on both flights. And what kind of security control do I have to go through when I arrive in Philadelphia?


    Yes, that should be enough time but you may have to hurry. You will go through US Immigration, then claim your baggage, then go through US Customs, then re-check your baggage, then go up to the departures level and go through security. Then you will likely have to take a shuttle bus to Terminal F where most of the PHL-New York flights leave from.


    I'm arriving at Terminal A and my next flight is from Terminal C. Does this make a difference?


    Well if your departing flight is in C that makes it even easier, you can just walk from A to C.

    monday aug 27 we are from 6.30 am till 6.00 pm at the airport. any suggestion to do? shuttle to the citycentre? thanks Ann Broekman


    1. I suggest that you open - scroll down to the end and read "To get from the Airport to your destination", for transportation options into the city; return to main menu and select from QUICK LINKS both "Terminal Map" (has description of terminals & how to get around) and "Airport Layover Ideas". Know ahead of time where your connecting Terminal & gate is, and count in the time you needed to get to the city for your return. 3. On arrival at PHL it may be a good idea to pick up some pamphlets about the City at the information counter near the baggage claim area.
