  • Customs & Connected from St Maartin
    Feb 24, 2014
    Arriving us airways from St Maartin. Terminal B - Then have a connecting flight to Pittsburgh. Do I have to get my luggage and the go thru customs and then recheck my bags.. All flights with US AIR. I have 1 hr 10 min layover. Will this be enough time>


    Yes you will have to claim your baggage, go through customs and recheck then go through security. That will be very hard to do in just 70 mins. However US has lots of PHL-PIT flights if you miss your connection.


  • F to A?
    Feb 12, 2014
    I'm flying from Manchester NH to Rome via PHL next week. Is one hour enough time to get from F to A?


    Yes you should have enough time: Free large shuttle buses, operated by US Airways, connect from Terminal F (gate F14) to gate A1.


  • B to D
    Jan 20, 2014
    Is there a moving walkway between B and D, and how long does it take to go from B to D? Meeting my elderly mother at D and don't want to be late.


    Yes, there is a moving walkway - shouldn't take more than 10 minutes, 15 minutes at the most.


  • MSP-PHL-LHR connection and re-check
    Jan 18, 2014
    I will be arriving at PHL on a domestic flight with Delta (Terminal D), and then departing on a British Airways international flight to London Heathrow (Terminal A). My flights will be two separate bookings, so I assume I will have to claim my baggage, exit security to landside, check in with British Airways and go through security again. How long must I allow? And should I transfer to Terminal A airside and then exit security, or exit security at Terminal D and then transfer landside? Is there an easier way if I've checked in online and only need to bag-drop? I'm concerned that a couple of hours may not be enough to connect. Thank you.


    I would allow at least 2 hours, preferably 2.5 hours for your transfer. You can't transfer to A airside since you will have to claim your baggage in D.


    Also, Delta and British Airways do have an interline baggage agreement, so even though Delta is not obligated to check baggage through to BA, it doesn't hurt to ask the agent at your origin point. Be sure to have documentation for your BA flight.

  • International > domestic flight connection

    I will be travelling to Seattle from Madrid in mid-December, and I will be taking the connecting flight in Philadelphia. The flight from Madrid has an scheduled arrival at 04.05 PM and the flight to Seattle leaves at 5.55. Will 1 hour and 50 minutes be enough time to go though customs, secutiry and change terminals? Do yu know what procedure I'd have to follow in case I miss the second flight? Any information or previous experience will be helpful. Thank you.


    You will go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check desk. Then you'll go upstairs and through security. All terminals at PHL are connected beyond security and you will be able to walk to your gate from your arrival terminal. You should have plenty of time. If your flight is late and you miss your connection you will automatically be rebooked on the next available flight, possibly involving a connection elsewhere such as Phoenix if there is no later nonstop to Seattle.


  • Time to move between terminals.

    Hi! I am geting to Terminal C in Philadelphia from Grensboro at 16.50 and I am supposed to go to the terminal A to catch my flight to Madrid at 18.45. Is it enough time to do it? Will I have any kind of trouble? Thank you so much. I appreciate it.


    Yes, that should be plenty of time. They are connected beyond security by moving walkways.


    Thank you so much!

    Hi, I will be flying to Chicago via Philadelphia from Israel in a week from now. I wiill have a layover of about 2 hours. I will arrive in Philadelphia at gate A and depart for Chicago at gate C. How do I get to terminal C? When am I soppose to go throw customs and immigration? and do I need to go throw security again? Do you think it's anough time between the flights? Thanks a lot for your help.


    You will go through immigration in Philadelphia. Yes, you will go through security again after you re-check your bags with US Airways. You should have enough time but you won't have any time to waste. Terminals A and C are connected by a moving walkway.

  • A1 or C16 Shuttle from Terminal F
    Oct 31, 2013
    To connect flight From TF to TB, which is fastest: Shuttle to A1 or C16?


    Whichever the shuttle arrives at first.


  • UR Airways Terminal Shuttle
    Oct 22, 2013
    How often does the terminal shuttle run from Gate F to Gate C? Every 5 minutes? 10 minutes? I have a 45 minute layover on Sunday, with an incoming Air Wisconsin flight dba as US Airways Express arriving at 8:44 am and a departure flight of Republic Airlines dba US Airways Express at 9:29 am. It looks like from today's schedule that Air Wisconsin arrives at Terminal F and Republic Air at Terminal B or C. Will this give me enough time?


    It runs pretty continuously. There's a lot of people coming and going from F and the shuttle bus is the only real connection to the rest of the airport.


  • Domestic arrival C > Int'l departure A West - 50 mins?
    Oct 16, 2013
    I am looking at an itinerary that has me arriving on a domestic US air flight at C21 and departing for the UK from A21 just 50 minutes later. Is this possible?


    Yes, 50 mins is sufficient. Terminals A & B are connected by post-security walkway. Concourses B gates B1-B16, and Concourse C gates C16-C31 on opposite sides - are the two main US Airways terminals, connected by a shopping mall and a food court.


  • Arriving in Terminal B; Departing in Terminal A
    Dec 7, 2013
    We are flying US Airways RDU to PHL and then British Air PHL to LHR. US Airways will not do an interline transfer of luggage - hence, we must pick up our luggage in Terminal B and go to Terminal A to re-check it. How do we do this?


    Concourses B & A are connected at post-security areas by moving walkways. Both are right next to each others.




  • Terminal F to C
    Oct 13, 2013
    Hi I arriving at terminal F from Miami , and have a connection at Terminal B for Montreal connection of 45minutes ...all flight with Us Airways...I read some terrible review and now im freaking out that I will miss my connection i dont have custom to past only in Montreal the transfert between terminal F and C is easy ?? and will i have time to make my connection or no ???


    You are not clear At PHL you arrive at TF and need to connect to TC or TB? US Airways uses all three terminals. Free large shuttle buses, operated by US Airways , make the following connections at post-security areas, where they run fromTerminal F (gate F14) only to either gates C16 or A1; your transfer time will suffice.


  • Hi, help please
    Oct 10, 2013
    Hi, I am arriving at gate C 16 tomorrow from BDL at 1233 I depart for ORF at F 34, boarding time 130 so that gives me roughly 40 minutes to take the shuttle, USAir says no problem, guy at the airport was laughing at me. Help, please.


    The USAir shuttle bus departs AT C16, arriving at Terminal F at gate F14, signs will guide you to departing gate F34. If no airline arrival delay, you should be able to make your connection easily.
