    I was wondering were we need to go through Immigration and Customs, in PHL or MIA?

    I'm traveling to Canada from sri lanka. We will have a transit in Doha and than to PHL and than to Toronto. Do we have to go through security when we get to PHL or will we go through American security in Doha? We only have 2 hours in PHL.

     

    In Philadelphia you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. If you are Sri Lankan citizens you will need a US Transit Visa.

     

    We're canadian citizens. Is two hours enough for all that? Also we're checking our baggage in from sri lanka. So do we still have to claim our bags in PHL?

     

    Yes, 2 hours should be enough time. Your bags will be tagged through to YYZ in Sri Lanka but you will still have to claim them in Philadelphia to go through US Customs.

     

  • Arriving at Terminal B and connecting to Terminal F

    My flight from Charleston will land at B15 at 7:55PM and my next flight leaves F31 at 9:00PM. Boarding starts at 8:30PM. Will I have to go through security again if I walk? On the shuttle (behind security I believe), how long would it take to get to the shuttle and then to my gate?

     

    No, you do not have to go through security. It should take you about 15 minutes to get between terminals on the shuttle.

    flying from buffalo to Philadelphia then flying out to Punta Cana. I have a 1 hour layover is that enough time? is the arrival gate and departure gate in Philadelphia close by? will be luggage be automatically transferred?

     

    Yes, your luggage will be transferred. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates in PHL are connected inside security. If you arrive in Terminal F then you'll take a shuttle to your departure terminal

    I will be flying from Toronto to Munich via PHL. Will I have to claim and recheck my luggages once in PHL?

     

    Assuming all tickets were purchased on the same reservation, no, you will not. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.

    I have 59 min to connect from terminal f us airways American airlines to terminal o? I can not find terminal o on map . Can anyone help

     

    There is no Terminal O. American Airlines flights use Terminal A. You just have to take the shuttle bus from Terminal F to your departure terminal. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

    Thak you

    Arriving from Albany on US Airways Express with one hour to make American flight to Dallas. I am assuming this is terminal F to A. Yes? And that I should take the shuttle. Yes? Will I have to clear security again? Will I make it? Many thanks.

     

    Yes, you take the shuttle, no you won't have to go through security in Philadelphia.

     

    Many thanks.

    First time transit in PHI and a little bit confused !! We fly with USairways abd arriving in terminal F with 1h39 of transit time. So after going tru immigration and duty, and put my luggage back on track , how i can take the USairways shuttle from F14 to A1 if i had already go out of all the controls ?? Do`es 1h39 is ok to do all contronls and transfer from terminal F to A ?? Its the first time i take a flight with connection so it is why i am so stress with it !!! Thanks for help !!

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. Your arrival into PHL will be like a domestic flight. So you can just take the shuttle from F to A. 1 hr 39 minutes is plenty of time.

     

    Sorry but i maid a mistake :( I am comming from Quebec airport where no US custom is available !! ...

     

    So you're flying from Quebec City? If so you won't arrive in Terminal F. There are no customs facilities in Terminal F. You will arrive in Terminal A, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, go through security and to your departure gate. You still have enough time.

     

    Thanks for rapid answer !! Its very apprciate.

    I fhave a connection (Nashville to PHL) then after i fly to Canada. Do i have to take my luggage at PHL or i only have to walk?

     

    If both tickets were bought on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your baggage in Philadelphia. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Hi, I am travelling with US Airways from Glasgow Airport (Scotland) into Philadelphia (PHL), then connecting a flight onto Buffalo NY with the same airline. Will I have to claim baggage then check-in again?? Thanks

     

    Yes, in Philadelphia you will arrive in Terminal A, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.

    Hi, We are flying from Detroit on us Airways arriving in Philidelphia, then departing on US airways to Manchester (UK) an hour later. Do we have to reclaim baggage and then check in again, or can we do it all in Detroit and avoid checking in and security?

     

    You will check your bags and go through security in Detroit. All you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You have enough time.

    hi, is 30 minutes enough to walk between terminal A and C (domestic flights from Miami to Detroit).

     

    Yes, that is enough time if your first flight is on-time and you hurry.

    Hi. I arrive to terminal A (from Barcelona) and have to connexion with terminal F (to Toronto). Have only 2 hours? Do I have enough time to get trough security? Do I have collect the suitcase? Is better to go walking or take the bus?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. 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 immediately after, then go through security and take the shuttle bus to Terminal F. You will go through Canadian immigration and Customs when you get to Toronto.

    Hi, on next Sunday my daughter (16 y.o.) will arrive (from Rome FCO) to PHL airport (terminal A) at. 3,50 pm. She has a connecting flight to Syracuse departing at 6.55 from terminal F . What does she have to do and in which order , in terms of baggage claim, custom , immigration and security controls before going to departure gate of terminal F? How long does it take to walk from terminal A to terminal F ? Thank in advance.

     

    She will arrive in Terminal A, go through US Immigration, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and take the train to concourse F. However, be aware that the Rome airport is a mess right now. With a 3 hour connection time there's a chance it won't be that late, but if it is there's a chance she'll miss her connection.
