I am flying to Philadelphia with America Airlines and then to London. I have only 55 minutes in Philadelphia before take off to London. Is that enough ?
If the first flight is domestic that is enough time.
I fly into Terminal F at 7:30am and fly out of Terminal A at 8:40 am. Is this enough time and how do I get from one terminal to the next? Also, do I have to go through security again? Thanks!
There is a shuttle bus that runs inside security. You have enough time.
Landing at F7 and departing C18 45 minutes later. Possible? Thanks
It's possible but leaves no time to spare.
Hi!

I'm EU citizen flying - Denver (DEN) 10:53 Philadelphia (PHL) 16:25 (terminal D) - (terminal A) Philadelphia (PHL) 17:45 Frankfurt (FRA) 07:35

Do I have enough time fo get the connction, I'm a little anxous..? (I'll only have cabin luggage)

thanks!
That should be enough time. If both flights are on the same reservation all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Flying to London from St Maarten (SXM) with stop in Philly. Is a 2hr10 connection enough time? Thank you!
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Okay thank you! Will I have to go through security again?
Oh just to say both flights with American Airlines
Yes, you will 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.
We fly in at terminal F15 at 7:50am and need to be at terminal A22 for a flight at 8:35am. Is this enough time? A little worried! Do we have to go through security again? Never been to this airport.
You do not have to go through security again. There is a shuttle that goes from F to A. However, this is still a very risky connection.
im arrving on AIR CANADA FLIGHT FROM MONTREAL.LEAVING ON american flight to DUBLIN
I HAVE 1- HOUR
Is it one reservation or two separate reservations?
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.
Thanks very much for that. Feel much easier now.
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
