  • from phl to clt early flt
    Aug 1, 2016
    leaving phl at 5:10 AM sept 10th going to clt and ongoing to Aruba. Which terminal domestic or international, and what time does tsa open at either terminal?


    PHL does not have a "domestic" and "international" terminal. It has six terminals, A through F. Look on for your departure terminal the day of your flight. Security should be open at around 3:15 AM.


  • Can you walk from Terminal F to Terminal B
    Jul 31, 2016
    Only have 45 minutes to get from F to B. What is fastest way. Afraid a shuttle would be confusing and can't risk getting on wrong one so is it walkable?? Please respond ASAP as going tomorrow


    It is walkable (only recently) but it's long. The shuttle is not confusing and you don't have to worry about getting on the wrong one.


  • Transfer terminal A to F

    Hi, I am flying from London to Cleveland through Philadelphia and have 1h layover. Is that enough time to get from A to F, what is the quickest way? Only have a carry-on, so no need to go through customs? Thanks


    You will have to go through US Immigration, customs and security. That is not enough time for an International to Domestic connection through PHL, you need to contact whoever you booked that ticket through and get it changed to at least 90 minutes, preferably 2 hours.

    HI, I have a flight from LAX into Philly, arriving at 7:29pm. I then have a flight to Halifax at 8:25pm. So I have 56 minutes for that connection. Will this be enough time? Thanks


    Yes, that should be enough time.


    Thank you!

    Hi, Im flying LAS-PHI-SBY.... Im landing in PHI at 8:36 AM terminal A 21 and i have connected flight to SBY from F 19 at 9:30 AM... Is it possible to make it in this short time? What is the shortest way to get from A to F? What can i do if i will miss the flight? I will have to buy new ticket? Thank you for your answer


    I'm sorry not PHI but PHL ... and i have just carry on bag


    Yes, that is possible. The fastest way is the shuttle bus. If you miss your connection you will be rebooked on the next available flight to Salisbury.

    Hi, I'm traveling from Barcelona to Miami connecting in Philadelphia,do I have to recheck my Luggage? both flight are in the same ticket. thanks


    Yes, 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.

    I am arriving on american eagle terminal F gate 3 and departing from Terminal A gate 25. I have a 55 minute connection .. will this be enough time .. whats the fastest way to make the connection. THANKS


    The fastest way is the shuttle bus. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Flights from Seattle, Wa to PHL then to Paris
    Jul 21, 2016
    I arrive from Seattle to PHL at 4:46 PM on Alaska Air flight 32 for connection flight American 754 to Paris at 6:20 PM. Is that enough time?


    Are your tickets on one reservation or two separate reservations? Do you have checked bags?


    One reservation and we plan to carry on - no checked bags.


    Then that is enough time. All you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • which terminal
    Jul 20, 2016
    Hi I am flighing American Airlines from Manchester uk then change at Philadelphia and then board American Airlines to Orlando any idea which terminal I will be arriving and departing from and if there is a terminal change


    You will arrive in Terminal A, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security. Your flight to Orlando will depart from Terminal A, B, or C. They are all connected both inside and outside security.


  • Terminal C to F
    Jul 19, 2016
    I have to get from terminal C to F in 45 minutes. No checked bags only a carry on. Enough time?


    Yes, that is possible, but it obviously leaves very little time to spare.


  • Directions from Terminal F to Terminal C
    Jul 22, 2016
    I need the fastest directions to get from Terminal F to Terminal C. Can anyone help.


    It really depends how fast you can walk. You can walk/run now inside security between them. if you move quickly then you can probably make it in 5-10 minutes. You can also take the shuttle bus, but that requires a bit of a backtrack to get to C.


    Going from PHL gate F20 to B3 in 90 minutes, what are chances?


  • Arrive B3. Depart C18
    Jul 17, 2016
    Estimate time from B to C


    It should take 10 minutes or less.

    Hi, I'm traveling from Atlanta to Toronto connecting in Philly,do I have to recheck my Luggage in Philly. Thanks


    If both flights are on the same reservation, no, you do not. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You will go through Canadian immigration and customs when you get to Toronto.


    Thanks so much


  • PHL to PVD
    Jul 15, 2016
    I will be arriving at Gate B and need to get to Gate F. How long does that usually take? If my flight is on-time I will have roughly 1 hour.


    about an 1hr should be enough time.


  • Short Connection Time
    Jul 14, 2016
    We will be arriving from DFW to PHL at 11:40 am in Terminal B- gate B9 and will have 40 minutes to make our connecting flight to BOS by 12:20pm in Terminal C- gate C22. Will that be enough time for 7 people (including 3 grandparents who will not be able to run) to make our connecting flight as long as there are no delays?


    Yes, that is enough time if your first flight is on-time. Obviously it doesn't leave much time to spare if it isn't. AA has frequent flights from PHL to Boston if you miss your connection, however it may take awhile for them to rebook 7 people.
