    travelling domestic to philadelphia from atlanta then onto london heathrow we have 1hr 40 mins time to get from i think its terminal c to terminal a how far is it as both husband and i dodgy knees ,.another question is we are doing lhr to charlotte do we get baggage and do imiigration and recheck bags

     

    It's too too far and there are moving walkways. you have plenty of time on your way to London. On the way back, in Charlotte you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security.

    I will be flying into phl and have to wait a very long time for my ride. I am not taking another flight. my question is when I land in phl and get my checked baggage... what is there to do? are there any shops or somewhere to eat outside of security?

     

    There isn't much to do there if anything.

    Hi, have a flight American Airlines 2033 lands at terminal c (c31) and next connecting flight American Airlines 615 terminal a west (a26), the time is only 30 minutes in between. Would there be enough time? Also what would be the fastest way/route from terminal c to terminal a-west?

     

    The fastest way is to walk and yes that is barely enough time as long as the first flight is on-time.

    Hi, I will be flying from Greeville (SC) to Doha with connecting flight from Philadelphia. Flight from Greenville will land on Terminal F while departure flight to Doha is from Terminal A. Will appreciate if you can guide on transit process, do I have to pass through both from Immigration & security (OR) only security? Is 1hr 33min is sufficient time to catch Doha flight?

     

    You will have to go through neither. There us no US Immigration or customs when leaving the US. If both tickets are on the same reservation and bags are checked through you just have to take the shuttle bus inside security from Terminal F to Terminal A. You have plenty of time.

     

    Hi ZAP, Thanks so much for the quick response - appreciate it. Both the tickets are on same reservation and hopefully I will be able to check my baggage for end destination from Greenville airport. So once baggage is checked to end destination then I don't have to pass through any further scanning or security at Philadelphia airport, just take shuttle bus from terminal F to terminal A and that's it. Am I right?

     

    Yes, that is correct.

    Hi - I will be flying American Airlines from Chicago to Philadelphia, then catching an international flight to Barcelona. I believe both my arrival and departure are in Terminal A. Do we just walk from the arrival gate to the departure gate for our international flight or are there checkpoints/customs we go through between our two gates in Terminal A? Thanks for your help!

     

    All you have to do in PHL is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.

    Hi! I'l be travelling from Cancun to Paris with a connection in Philadelphia. I've a checked luggage. What will be the procedure? Wil I have enough time to get on the plane? Thanks

     

    You will arrive in Terminal A 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, also in Terminal A. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • Enough time if coming from Amtrak

    If coming from Amtrak 30th st Station and arriving at 5:23 AM Flight on Spirit Term A-East departing at 6:05? no checked luggage Or Carry on.

     

    you are on an Amtrak train arriving at 30th street 5:23 AM and are planning on getting on a flight leaving PHL at 6:05 AM? No, that would be completely impossible, even if Amtrak was on-time, which it never is. Also, 30th street station is 8 miles from PHL.

    Hi there four of us leaving Toronto Pearson heading to San Juan Puerto Rico with a stop over of 1 hour 30 minutes in Philadelphia. Will the terminals be the same? is this a smooth transition?

     

    also is there any good places to have breakfast?

     

    you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates are connected inside security. You have plenty of time.

    My American Airlines Flight to Montego Bay leave Pearson and connect in Philly.I need to know the connecting procedure in Philly. Do I need to collect and re-check my luggage.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in PHL is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you arrive in Terminal F it is connected to the other terminals inside security by a shuttle bus.

     

    Thanks for your quick response. Do I have to go through the regular security check(s) before boarding the shuttle.

     

    No, the shuttle connects the terminals INSIDE security.

     

  • 1 hour 10 minutes for YYZ - PHL - LHR?

    I booked a flight with a long layover in Philly to account for any issues, but American moved us to a later flight several months after I booked. We now just have 1 hour 10 minutes in Philly. Will that be enough time? We arrive in Terminal A, our flight to London departs from Terminal F. We are arriving from Toronto, so I don't think we have to go through customs and collect bags in Philly, correct? I'm wondering if we'll be ok with the rebook or if I should call and get put back on the earlier flight.

     

    You have your terminals reversed. You will arrive in F and depart from A. Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in PHL is take the shuttle bus from Terminal F to Terminal A. You have enough time.
