I am arriving into Philadelphia airport this evening and have one hour to get from terminal F to terminal C. Can you tell me the easiest and quickest way to get from Terminal F (Gate F38) to Terminal C (Gate C25) while staying in secured area so we don't have to go back through security?
You can take the shuttle or walk. Both keep you inside the secure area. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I will be arriving from Albany, NY Terminal F and only have 50 mins to get to terminal B for flight to Indianapolis. Is it enough time to walk from one terminal to the next for a senior citizen? and how do you get there (B) from here (F)?
You can walk or take a shuttle to C and then walk to B. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
I will be arriving into PHIL Airport from Grand Rapids Mi on flight American Airlines 4895 at 9:51AM which I see is Terminal F and have a connecting flight American Airlines 805 out of Phil at 10:40Am which is 51 minutes leaving from Terminal A to Cancun. Should I walk or take the shuttle? Thanks
You could do either. I would probably take the shuttle.
If I arrive at Concourse A West can I walk to Terminal F while remaining in secured space? And about how long does it take to make that walk?
Yes, you can walk or take the shuttle if your arrival is domestic all inside security. It's a 15-20 minute walk, the shuttle is slightly faster.
In January my daughter will be travelling the following route from the UK:
Aberdeen to Heathrow to Philly then onwards to Burlington, Vermont. She has not travelled long haul before. She is travelling on one ticket and her baggage should be checked straight through from Aberdeen to Burlington.
Flight nos are:
BA0067 from Heathrow to PHL, arriving Terminal A, at 1555 hrs, then
AA4597 (American Eagle), departing Terminal (?unknown) at 2045
We have allowed plenty time to make the connection but are unsure how she gets from one terminal to another and/or if she will have to clear customs/security when she arrives at PHL?
Any advice appreciated.
In Philadelphia she will go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and then walk to Terminal C where her flight to Burlington will depart.
Thank you, a big help and very much appreciated.
I'm flying into Philly tomorrow from Albany, NY via AA. Only have 1hour and 15 minutes to catch my flight to Aruba. Do I need to go thru Customs when I get to Philly? I noticed my reservation states I need to change terminals but not sure what gate I land at and what terminal I need to go to catch my Aruba flight. Is the 1.25 hours enough time to go thru Customs ( if I have to) and change terminals?
There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All Terminals and gates are connected inside security. You have enough time.
I am arriving from Burlington Vermont on AMERICAN EAGLE flight 4905 and I have to change terminals to connect to AMERICAN AIRLINES flight 2022 to fly to Fort Lauderdale. Which terminal do I land at and which terminal do I depart from and how long will it take. Thank you
You arrive in Terminal F and depart from Terminal A, B, or C.
Hi,

I am looking at flights from burlington to Tampa but the flight i found has a 43 mins connection in PHL... i find that VERY short. But never gone to this airport before.. any suggestion if i should take it ? Both Flights are on AA. Flight is in December.. therefore temperature might not help...

Thanks

Alex
It's possible, but it doesn't leave any time to spare.
Hi, I'm due to arrive into PHL at 13:30 on 19th Dec with AA. With a connecting flight to TPA also with AA departing at 15:25. Is this a long enough layover?
I forgot to say,I'm a uk national flying in from LHR
That is enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Cheers mate.
I have only a 48-minute layover on 10/17/17 to get from gate B11 to gate F36. Is it better to walk or take the shuttle? I'm a fast walker. About how many minutes to walk?
It's about a 15 minute walk. I'd personally walk since you are a fast walker.
