I will be flying from Toronto to Philly, with a further connection. When I land in Philly, I will go through customs there and then do I collect my luggage or will that automatically go to my final destination?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate if both flights are on American.
I will be landing at Terminal D @ 5:18 PM and my connection at Terminal F @ 6: PM. There is almost 40 min. between each flight. Do I have enough time to walk or take the shutle?
No flights to San Juan leave from Terminal F, so you have the terminals mixed up. If both flights are on American, you just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have just enough time.
Thank you, I was wrong. Arrive at Terminal F, but departure is from Terminal A. OK
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I ARRIVE IN PHL FROM BARCELONA, SPAIN AT 3:55 PM. I NEED TO CATCH A FLIGHT TO PHOENIX AT 5:30 PM. I HAVE ONLY CARRYON LUGGAGE. WILL I BE ABLE TO MAKE THIS CONNECTION?
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thank you!
My connecting international flight leaves from terminal A but my arriving domestic flight arrives at terminal F - can you make the international flight with 1 hour 10 minutes? Do I have to go through security at PHL or is this a straight terminal change without security clearance? Thanks
Yes, you can do that. You can go from F to A via shuttle or walking without having to go through security.
Hi, can someone tell me if a layover of 1h20 is enough to connect a flight from los Angeles, to Philadelphia, final destination Montreal
Yes, all you have to do in PHL is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
How long do I need to allow for transferring at PHL from a flight from London LHR to the terminal/gate for my connecting flight to PHF? I have an elderly companion who walks slowly.
I would want at least 2 hours.
Thankyou, that's very helpful.
How long does it take to go from terminal B gate B5 to terminal F gate F15
On the shuttle or walking it will take 10-20 minutes.
I take AA from SJU to PHL connecting to YYZ. Arriving PHL at 5:05 pm. Layover for 1 hr 30 min and departing from PHL to YYZ at 6:35 pm. Q1. is 1.5 hr layover enough, 2. do we need for baggage clearance and go through immigration?, 3.do we need to change to another terminal. we are non US Citizen .thank you
There is no US Immigration when leaving the US and flights from Puerto Rico to the mainland are domestic flights. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Philadelphia. You have enough time.
I have 50 minutes to get from terminal B to F. I am extremely worried I won't make it. I have a bum knee but I keep reading that the shuttles usually take longer. Any suggestions? Can I get someone with a cart to take me? I have no proof of my torn ligaments but it is very hard to walk (fast) as I cannot fully extend or bend my knee. Also, I am reading I have to go thru security again?? That was not the case when I flew in and out two weeks ago.
Yes, you don't need any "proof" to request wheelchair service. You do NOT have to go through security again.
Coming from Rome on October 10 3:55pm, connection to Houston 6:31pm. Will this be enough time to go through immigration and customs (US citizens)?
Yes, that is enough time. However be aware that there will almost definitely be a schedule change between now and October.
