  • HOw bad?

    How bad can things get at PHL airport in November? Will there be delays? Will 4hr 40min work to switch to Frontier to American to go to Amsterdam? Do you do customs in the us? 1hr 50min Work in AMS to switch to Alitalita?

     

    In November, things are not too bad. In fact, it's one of the year's best months, as there is limited risk of thunderstorm and it's still a bit too early for high chances of snow. 4h40m is more than enough time in PHL. In Amsterdam, 1h50 is enough as long as your flight from PHL is on time.

     

  • Sint Maarten --> PHL --> London

    Hi! I'm traveling from the island of Sint Maarten to London, England (LHR) with a connecting flight at Philadelphia International. My layover is an hour and a half long. I know I'll have to go through customs when I land in the US. Do I also have to claim my checked bag? And if so, is an hour and a half enough time to go through customs and claim my bag? Thanks for the help!

     

    Yes, you also have to claim and re-check your bag after customs. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

    Thank you so much for your help and prompt reply! Fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly.

    We are traveling from Boston Logan to Cancun with a stop in Philadelphia. Is 50 min enough time to get the connection? Both flights are AA, their website says we get at terminal 0 and leave from terminal A but it seems there is no terminal 0 in Philly.. 😒

     

    You will arrive from Boston at either concourse A, B, or C, and depart from A. Fifty minutes is enough if your inbound flight is on time. You will simply have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Can you walk from terminal c to terminal f

     

    You could walk but it would require exiting security. They have a shuttle that takes you from Terminal F to Terminals A and C without having to exit security.

    I am flying from Indianapolis to London Heathrow via Philadelphia do I need to re check mt baggage, and is 55 mins enough time to make connecting flight

     

    You will simply walk (or take the shuttle if you're flying American Eagle from Indy) from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no rechecking of baggage. You have enough time.

    Once I land in PHL, do I need to go to baggage claim, get my bag, then go thru customs to get on my next flight? I have 1 1/2 hours between flights.

     

    Where are you flying into Philadelphia from? I can't answer your question without knowing that.

    My son is flying in through PHL on the way to Vegas,I have never been through PHL are there any tips that can help a make the transfer as easy as poss?

     

    It is not a difficult transfer. Just follow the signs. However, if he arrives on American Eagle (a regional jet), he will have to take a shuttle bus from Terminal F to his departing Terminal. Have him check his arrival and departure gate online before departing using a site like Flightview.

    Yes you should have enough time both ways. Your London flights will be in Terminal A and your Atlanta flights will be in Terminals A, B, or C.

    Is it short and easy to connect phl american to american eagle PHL to Portland Maine???

     

    It is not a terribly difficult connection. You will arrive at either Terminal A, B, or C, and will take a shuttle bus to Terminal F for your American Eagle flight. The two shuttle stations are located at gates A1 and C1. F you have 40 or more minutes, you will have no issues, barring a delay.

    Is it simple to use American Air terminals at PHL to connect with American air flights?? going PHL TO PORTLAND MAINE

     

    Yes, that should be a fairly easy connection. There's no need to post the same question twice.

     

  • Terminal A to Terminal E

    Later this year I will be arriving on an international flight into Terminal A. I need to catch a connecting flight on Frontier Airlines in Terminal E. These flights are booked on two separate tickets and I have five hours to make the connections which should be enough time. I know I will have to go through customs and then security again. What is the best way to get from Terminal A to the ticketing desk in Terminal E, with my baggage?

     

    The only way is to walk along the curbfront outside the terminals.

    Hi, I'm a UK citizen and will be coming home from Bermuda through PHL with a connection to Heathrow (return flight, I go out direct) will I have to go through USA security and collect my bag as if I was staying in the USA and then go back through check-in as if I were a new passenger? Thanks. Never done it this way before.

     

    In Bermuda you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs. In Philadelphia all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • 65 Minute Connection to Canada

    Hi there. I will be flying from Portland, ME through PHL to YYZ (Canada). My itinerary mentioned it would be a terminal change. Do you know what terminal I will have to switch to? Is 65min sufficient time to catch the bus and make it to the next terminal? I will not be checking any bags. Thanks!

     

    There may or may not be a terminal change, your flights could use Terminals B, C, or F. 65 minutes is enough time.
