My Mom and I are flying on Delta Flight Number DL 864 on Monday 16 Oct 2017. She's 94 years old my need some assistance. Which parking garage should we take for the shortest possible route to the Check in counter?
Is it possible to walk (rather than take a rather long shuttle ride) from long-term parking to Terminal F, which appears quite near to the south end of the parking lot?
Well, I answered my own question. Yes, you can walk from long-term parking to Terminal F, and presumably from there to other terminals. There is a sidewalk starting at the southeast edge of the lot (by the car entrance there) that goes right to Terminal F in a 5 minute walk. Of course, it may take you longer to walk INSIDE the lot to get to that sidewalk, depending on where you've parked. And it may be a bit hard on your luggage wheels!
What a great idea - Philadelphia Airport has a so-called 'Cell Phone Waiting Lot' for drivers who are picking up an arriving passenger there. The lot can be easly reached from I-95 & Rute 291 with easy signs guiding you to it, and only a one-minute drive from the lot to the baggage claim area.
Note that none of the garages at PHL Airport can accommodate vehicles exceeding 6 feet in height; if you need to park under 24 hours you can use the ground level of the garages at short-term rates; however, if you need to park longer than 24 hours, park in the Economy lot, which is north of Terminal F
