    Hi, One more question: flying Halifax- PHL AmerEagle, terminal change to fly to SJU. I assume we have to clear US customs/imm in PHL. Connection time 90 minutes enough? thx!


    You assume incorrectly. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Halifax. All you have to do in PHL is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thank you!

    Hi, flying AA from SJU to PHL. Terminal change to A. Eagle flight to Halifax with 75minutes. Enough?


    You will arrive in Terminal A, B, or C and depart from Terminal C or F. If you need to go to F there is a shuttle inside security. if connecting between A/B/C you can just walk. You have enough time.

    I have about a two hour layover and I have to go from Terminal F to Terminal A. Is that enough time? Will I have to go through security again?


    Yes, that is plenty of time. There is a shuttle inside security from Terminal F to Terminal A.


  • clearing customs time from LHR
    Jun 13, 2016
    I have 3 hours between my arrival time in PHL from London until my flight to MSP. Is that enough time to clear customs, get thru security and then be at the gate to catch my flight?


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • 62 minute layover
    Jun 13, 2016
    if I arrive from American eagle and have a 62 min layover to leave with American airlines to Orlando is that enough time. I read American eagle uses terminal f and American airlines uses a b or c


    Some American Eagle flights use Terminals B and C. American uses A, B, and C. You have enough time. If you have to go to F there is a shuttle inside security and all other terminals are connected inside security by walkways.


    thank you


  • 1 hour connection between int. flights

    Hello Im traveling end of july from providenciales through PHL to Zurich. I only have 1 hour between the two flights. Will this be enough time? Both supposed to be at Terminal A


    No, that is not enough time to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security.


  • connection to Providence
    Jun 13, 2016
    I am landing at terminal A from Rome on July 25th at 4pm and connect to a flight to Providence at 6pm but from terminal F. Will I have time to get my bag, clear customs and make that flight?? Thanks


    Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • 1 Hour between Flights
    Jun 6, 2016
    Hi--I am flying on American Airlines from San Diego to Lisbon (through Philadephia) on the 15th. We have only 1 hour layover between our scheduled arrival in Philadelphia and our flight to Lisbon. I believe that the flight from San Diego to Philadelphia typically arrives at Terminal B or C, and that the flight from Philadelphia to Lisbon normally departs from Terminal A. We will be checking luggage. Is that enough of a connection time?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • domestic layover
    Jun 6, 2016
    are all american airline gates in same terminal so a 45 min layover could work ?


    American and American Eagle uses gates in Terminals A, B, C, and F. All gates in Philadelphia are connected inside security.


  • Baggage rechecking on stopover
    Jun 19, 2016
    Hi. We're flying from Manchester to Orlando in October, via Philadelphia. Will we need to collect our luggage in Philadelphia and re-check it in for our flight on to Orlando? Thanks


    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.




  • Transfer from domestic to international
    Jun 7, 2016
    Hi. We're travelling with American Airlines from MCO on the 27th Aug, arriving PHI 1952 (they just changed the flight). We have a connection at 2100 to Manchester UK. Is 1 hr and 8 min enough time? Thanks


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    That's great, thanks for your help!


  • Terminal A to CC, 4 hours enough? (DFW to LHR to BOM)
    Jun 5, 2016
    AA arrival on Terminal A and BA departure from Terminal C,,is 4 hours enough time? there is a shuttle service from A to C?


    British Airways flights do not depart from Terminal C at PHL, they depart from Terminal A. Perhaps you will arrive in Terminal C. Regardless it is an easy walk from C to A and all gates at PHL are connected inside security. Only Terminal F requires using a shuttle.


    My bad...u r right...thx..


  • Enough time?
    Jun 2, 2016
    I am connecting through PHL from San Diego AA to London on BA. I have an 1.5 hour layover. Assuming no flight delays, will i have enough time? Thanks.


    Yes, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


    Thanks for the reply, but will I have to recheck bags? The arriving flight is a British Airways flight operated by AA and the departure flight is just BA, so I'm i little confused about switching airlines. Thanks again.


    As long as everything is on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bags in Philadelphia on the way to London.


  • Qatar - PHL - Montreal
    May 31, 2016
    Hi, I am arriving on a flight from Qatar, landing at Gate A-West at 7:30am. My connecting flight to Montreal is on Air Canada, departing at 10:40am. Is there enough time to get to Terminal D? Will I have to clear customs / collect bags / check bags again? Apologies in advance if this has been asked previously... Thanks.


    Yes, that should be enough time. There is no need to ask the same question multiple times.


  • Half Hour Layover
    May 30, 2016
    My spouse booked a trip with a layover in Philadelphia. We arrive in PHL at 7:21am with the next flight leaving at 7:55am. Is this even possible?


    btw: it's all domestic flights. Flying from RI to CA.


    Possible, but I would be nervous. Morning flights are more likely to be on time. If your first flight is long, you may arrive early. The departing flight will begin boarding about the time you land. If you have checked baggage, it may not make it. Or it might make it, while you don't. If you are on the back of the plane it can take 15 (nerve-wracking) minutes just to get off. If the same airline is used, then both gates MIGHT be in the same terminal. Hopefully these are both domestic flights. If you miss the connection, I think they would likely put you on the next one out.
