    Need to connect from Terminal F To Terminal A to fly to Rome. I have 1 hr 35 min. connecting time. Is this enough time?

     

    That is enough time. There is a bus from F to A that runs inside security.

    We're flying back form Paris on Delta and connecting to Atlanta and have 1 hr 20 mins to connect from international to domestic. We will have carry ons only and have Global Entry and Pre Check. Is 80 mins enolugh time to connect? Assuming we land at TErmial A and depart to Atlanta from Terminals D or E. Thanks!

     

    With no checked bags and Global Entry, I think you have enough time if the flight from Paris is on-time.

     

    I'm flying BA from Heathrow to Philadelphia and then AA to Greenville SC through. I have 1hr 45 mins from landing to my flight departing. Do I go through customs and will I have enough time?

    traveling from Boston to Barcelona, with a 58minute layover in PHL, is that enough connection time?

     

    Yes, all you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate

     

    thanks. about how long is the walk? all are AA flights.

     

    It should be less than 10 minutes.

     

  • Customs clearance- how much time needed?

    I will be travellling back from Barcelona in May and connecxting thru Philadelphia. The flight I am looking at only has a 2 hour layover before my last flight option home that evening. Will 2 hours be enough to clear and get us to our short flight to Louisville with checked luggage?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • 30 min connection time - can i make it?

    I'm flying AA and I land from Chicago at 753a on a Thu and my connecting flight is 31 min later, at 8:24a, in the international terminal. Can I make it? I assume AA wouldn't serve this up as an option if it wasn't possible?

     

    It's possible if the first flight is on-time but leaves no time to spare. PHL doesn't have an "International Terminal".

     

    Ah, ok. Thanks! It only mentioned a terminal change so hopefully it's close and I can sit as close to the door as possible and just run.

     

    You'll probably arrive in A or B and depart from A.

    I arrive at PHL from LAX and have one hour to make a connection on American Eagle to Newport News. What type of transportation is available between terminals and how often does it run?

     

    There is a bus from A to F. If you depart from Terminal F, you can take it, it runs very frequently.

     

  • Punta Cana to Manchester England via Philladelphia Apt - US Immigratio

    My husband and I are travelling in June from Punta Cana DR back home to Manchester England via Phil Apt. We have a 1h22mins transfer ttime. We are travelling all the way through on AA, so should be checked through all the way through. We have UK passports. Do we need to collect bags, go through US customs and then re-check bags etc? If so , do we have enough time - will flights be to/from same terminal.?We can run if we have to!!

     

    Yo 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. This is a very difficult connection. Yes, both flights will be in Terminal A.

     

    Thanks for help!! Can you tell me why it is such a difficult connection if in the same terminal? Is there not a Fastrack for travellers in transit to connecting flights? I notice online news says that Pre-clearance will be available at Punta Cana apt in MAY 2017. We fly this route on July 03 2017..

     

    Ooops! I got the transfer time incorrect - it is actually 2h 5 mins! Does that help us make it through customs etc etc and make our connecting flight or is it still too difficult? Thanks again!

    I'm flying Manchester to Phili then on to Orlando both flights with AA. Landing in terminal A and departing from C. Do I need to collect my bags ? Or just walk to my departure gate after immigration?

     

    Yes, you will 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.

    We have a flight into Terminal F with a connection out of Terminal A-West. We only have 40 minutes for our layover. Is it faster to walk or take the shuttle?

     

    If you are fast walkers, walk, if not, take the shuttle.

     

  • Enough time to catch my connection?

    Hello, I'm coming from Bangkok with Qatar Airlines, passing through Doha, and also stopping in Philly. Finally, I need to catch my Montreal connection and I have only 2h20 stop. Is it enough to get my luggage, pass through Customs out, then check in my luggage and pass through Customs again and get to the gate in time? Thank in advance

     

    To add more relevant info. I'll arrive at Terminal A from Doha. I believe the flight to Montreal, Canada is also at Terminal A. Is it even required to do the check-out/customs and check-in/customs given it's in the same terminal? Thanks

     

    Yes, you will 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, which will probably NOT be in A.

     

    Hi Zap. Thank you for reply. I mentioned leaving from terminal A because today, when i looked for the flight numbers both were in terminal A. In any case, that's not so important as it is making the flight? Do you think it's possible? Thanks again

     

    Yes, I think it's possible.

    I will be travelling from Doha via Qatar Airways landing in Terminal A. I have a connection for 3.5 hours. My final destination is Ottawa Canada via American Airlines. Will I be required to do security - check baggage out and recheck them in or will my customs immigration take place in Ottawa ?

     

    Yes, in Philadelphia you will 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 enough time. If you are from a nation that requires a visa to enter the US, you will need a US Transit Visa.

    International flight to Dublin. Arriving in PHL Terminal F and have 1:10 before departure from Terminal A. Is this enough time? I am told the terminals are not close to each other.

     

    Yes, that is enough time. There is a shuttle from F to the other American terminals. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Hi, I am travelling from Manchester UK in may to Indianapolis and have a connecting flight to catch in Philadelphia I have just had notification of flight time change leaving me 1 hour 40 minutes to catch the connecting flight, the airline say this is enough time but I was just wondering if anyone could help with if they think it is. I think I arrive in terminal A and have to get to terminal F through security, baggage claim and security again this will only be my third flight and am bringing someone with me on their first flight so neither of us are very good at airports many thanks for any help.

     

    That is enough time. 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 and to your departure gate.

     

    Thank you

    Hello, I'll be flying from Los Angeles to PHL in April, late afternoon and have about an hour and 40 minutes between that flight and my next flight to Paris. Will I need to collect my bags and go through customs before my flight to Paris? Is this enough time?

     

    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. If both flights are on the same reservation, all you have to do on your way to Paris is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
