    if i arrive in philadelphia from england uk and am on a connecting flight to charlotte -will 1 hr 35 be enough time for me to get through security etc on or around 19th october

     

    All international arrivals need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance, and (if proceeding with journey) re-check-in bags. Do make sure your first airline will transfer bags to the connecting airline's flight - if not you need to take your bag and check it in at the connecting terminal. Open www.ifly.com/phl and click on 'Terminal Map' - then scroll down to the text to find your arriving and departing terminal and how to connect.

     

  • enough time to catch connecting flight?

    We are arriving in December from Amsterdam (US 799, at 15.50) and have a connecting flight to San Juan (US 741, at 17.55) and are worried if we can make it in just 2h 5min through immigration, baggage claim, customs, re-checking luggage (where?), getting boarding passes (transfer desk or directly at the new gate?). Can anyone tell which waiting times we wiill have to expect and if we have to be concerened abobut getting our connecting flight?

     

    Two hours transfer time should suffice - unless you travel during Christmas time. Normal customs clearance/baggage claim re-check should not be more than 50 mins. You need not do anything else thereafter, but proceed to your connecting gate (watch the overhead screens), as you use the same Airline for both legs of your journey and you bags will be transferred.

     

    so we ARE travelling during Christmas time (Dec 25 or Dec 26) :-( - how long do you think it might take in the worst case and will we get our flight even though?

    Does anybody know how long it takes to get from Terminal E to Terminal A

     

    AT PHL, all terminals , except TF, are connected at their gate area by moving walkways - no need to go through security check; however, count at least on a 30-minute transfer.

    Arriving in PHL and traveling onward to Halifax from Concourse F; what is the best way to get from D to F? Walk or bus?

     

    1. A free shuttle bus, operated by US Airways , makes the following connections: at post-security areas between Terminals B/C (at gate C16) and Terminal F at gate F14). On arrival at D gates use the moving walkway to F gate F14. You won't have to go through security check again, but count on at least 30 mins transfer time. As all terminals, other than TF, are connected at post-security areas by moving walkways, and the shuttle bus connects directly to the F14 gate, transfer passengers do not need to re-enter security checks. A free shuttle bus, operated by US Airways , makes the following connections: at post-security areas between Terminals A-East/ A-West (at gate A1), and Terminal F (at gate F14), and between Terminals B/C (at gate C16) & F (gate F14). As all terminals, other than TF, are connected at post-security areas by moving walkways, and the shuttle bus connects directly to the F14 gate, transfer passengers do not need to re-enter security checks.

     

    Just to make sure I understand your message above correctly - if I take the walkways I don't have to go through security again but it takes 30 minutes? And if take the shuttle I won't have to go through security either? How long does it take by the shuttle?

     

    Duhh I was reading post security to mean that I would be outside of the secure area; when in fact it means after you have cleared security. Sorry

    Hello ! What is the normal amount of time needed to get from TA to TF. Arrival at 16:10 // Departure at 17:54. When the time allows, can I exit the Airport (where ?) to smoke outside and then re-enter the Airport ???

     

    Forgot to say, the Arrival is from Germany and the Departure is to GSO (Greensboro)

     

    As an international arrival at PHL, you need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through Customs clearance and re-check-in your bag at dedicated area. (Assuming that your first airline will transfer your bags to the connecting US Airways Express flight (otherwise you need to take your bag with you and check it in at TF's airline counter.) This procedures takes 35-50 mins. Thereafter, you need take the free shuttle bus, operated by US Airways, makes the following connections: at post-security areas between Terminals A-East/ A-West (at gate A1), and Terminal F (at gate F14) - add an extra 30 mins. for transport.
