My son (17 years old) will land Terminal A from Paris and will take off from Terminal F to Milwaukee. He has 1H50. Does he need to do clear customs at Philadelphia or is it just a transfer? 1H50 is enough to do the transfer with the shuttle?
Help! I arrive at 251pm at Gate B8 & need to get to Gate F5 by 350pm on Friday. 1) is that possible? 2) What is the faster way to do that?

Thanks for the help!
Yes, that is possible. The fastest way is probably to walk.
Great. Thanks for the help!
I am slightly disabled. What is the best and fastest way to make my connection?
Are there taxis inside the airport for handicapped people?
You need to contact your airline and request wheelchair service. The airlines are in charge of that, not the airport.
Hi, have a connecting flight at PHL.
Arriving with a BA flight from LHR at terminal A, connecting to CUN with an AA flight from the same terminal (A). How does the security check work, I have 2hrs in between the flights, enough time?
You have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security, and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
We have a 1 hour connection arriving Terminal F going to Terminal C. Is it quicker to walk or take shuttle. Is walk all inside the airport
It's faster to walk to C. Yes, you can walk all inside security.
I will be arriving from the UK into PHL on an American Airlines flight, Assuming Terminal A for US Immigration and Customs. I then will be connecting to a Delta domestic flight. When I pick up my bags from American, will I be able to check them in At Terminal A or will I need to take them to Delta ticketing in Terminal E and if so how do I go from A to E?
You will have to take your bags to Terminal E to check them with Delta. The only way is to walk along the curbfront.
How long will it take to get from terminal F to terminal A? Thank you!
15-20 minutes on the shuttle.
How long to get from terminal C to terminal A? Do I need to go through security again?

Thank you!
You do not have to go through security again. You can walk it in 10-15 minutes.
I am flying to Montreal from Florida changing planes in PHL. My plane lands at 9:33 terminal B. Plane takes off Terminal A at 11:05. Do I have to go get my bags at baggage claim and then go through customs to recheck them and will I have enough time to do that? I have never been to this airport and don't know my way around and haven't been on many international flights. Thank you.
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time. Your flight to Montreal will actually likely depart from Terminal F.
Thank you, I am wondering why my itinerary tells me baggage D and leaving out of Terminal A. I will look again when it is closer to my flight. Thanks again!
