Hi. Having a trip from Medellin (colombia) to Miami to Philly to Paris. My connection time in Philly is one hour. Will it be enough for us to catch our plane to Paris ? Thanks a lot, I'm pretty worried.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am travelling from San Juan Puerto Rico to Manchester UK. I have 1hr 45 min between flights. WI'll this be enough time for customs, collect bags and Re check etc. ks.
Flights from Puerto Rico to the mainland US are considered domestic flights and there is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Philadelphia on the way to Manchester is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.
Traveling from Montreal to St-Martin via Philly. In Philly airport, do we need to claim baggage and run through security before taking next flight to St-Martin? And then on our way back, when in Philly Airport do we need to get our baggage and clear customs/security before next flight to Montreal? Thank you very much
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. On your way to St-Martin all you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. On the way back, 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.
Thanks ZAP. On our way back we have 1h40 in Philly airport to connect to Montreal flight. Do you think we will have enough time? When you are mentioning to re-check our bags at the re-check desk are we doing this at the Terminal A (our next flight to Montreal is from Terminal F). Thanks
You will re-check your bags at the re-check desk right after you clear Customs in Terminal A. That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thanks ZAP After dropping bags at the re-check desk and going through security of Terminal A should we take the shuttle to Terminal F to gain some time. Thank you again for your advice.
Yes, I would take the shuttle.
Thank you for your time and advice Greatly appreciated
I have a "20" minute connection tomorrow going to San Juan. Philly sucks, and I will likely have to sprint to shuttle and sprint to gate before it closes. Is this even legal? What's worse, frequent flier miles means they'll give us no options.
