    I'm traveling from Vegas to Los Angeles to Philly and then home to Halifax. I have 1 hour and 10 min. to go from Term B to Term C in PHL. Do I have to go through Customs in Philadelphia or Halifax? If PHL is that enough time?

     

    You will go through Canadian Immigration when you get to Halifax. All you have to do in PHL is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

    Hi - Flying from Dublin into EWR with a 2 hour 5 minute connection in PHL. Will we have to collect our bags and re-check them in before travelling from Terminal A to Terminal F? All booked on same itinerary. First flight is operated by US Airways and connecting flight is operated by "Air Wisconsin dba US Airways Express"

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All you have to do in Philadelphia is take the shuttle bus from your arrival terminal to Terminal F. You should have plenty of ttime.

     

  • Munich - Philadelphia - Cincinnati connection

    Hello, I´m flying tomorrow morning from Munich to Philadelphia and there I have a 2hr 4min time gap to take the next flight to Cincinnati. My plane arrives at the Terminal A (I don´t know if East or West) and then I have to go to the Terminal F to take the next flight. The question is, will I make it on time or will I have to run like hell? Considering that I have to take my luggage, go through C&I, go through security and then go to terminal F, I´m not so sure. Plus, how often does the shuttle leave from Terminal A? is it possible to go by foot from terminal A to F? Because if I have to wait for the bus for too long, I might as well run for it.

     

    The shuttles to Terminal F are very frequent you have to take the shuttle, you can't walk there. You should have enough time if your flight from Munich is on-time.

    We will be flying from Manchester to Philadelphia Terminal A with a 2 hr 15 min wait until connecting flight to San Francisco leaving from Terminal B. Is there enough time and what a the procedures to go through?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Upon arrival you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, go to the departure level, go through security and walk to your departure gate.

    Hello, I am traveling from FRA to PHL in September with a gap of 1hr 45 min. Arriving in Terminal A and Departing in Terminal B. Will this be enough time to go through customs and make the next flight? What are the chances of the airport changing terminals or gates?

     

    That should be enough time. Any gate that a flight to RSW would depart from is directly connected to Terminal A.

    Flying US Airways from Boston to San Diego, with a 31 min connection at PHL. Will I have enough time to get to my connecting flight?

     

    If your first flight is on-time and you run, you can make it. But if it's delayed, you have a slim chance unless the second flight is also delayed.

     

    Thanks for your quick response! Thankfully, I was assigned a seat in the second row for my first flight so I'll keep my fingers crossed for no delays.

    With the shuttle you will likely barely have enough time if your flight from Halifax is on-time.

    No, all terminals at PHL are connected by walkways or a shuttle bus inside security. You should have enough time.

    I will flying from SCE to CDG with a 1h30 min layover in PHL. Both flights are on US airways. When I arrive at PHL, I have to connect from Terminal F to Terminal A. Will I have to claim my checked bag and then re-check it for my connecting flight?

     

    No, you will not have to claim your bags. You only need to take the shuttle bus from Terminal F to Terminal A and board your flight.

    How often does security area shuttle run (time interval)? Also, how long does the shuttle take from Terminal F to terminal A?

     

    The Shuttle runs almost constantly - lots of people use it. It will take maybe 15 minutes to get to Terminal A.

    My flight is on US Airways

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in halifax. You will likely arrive in Terminal F. You will have to take the shuttle bus, which runs inside security from Terminal F to your departure terminal.

     

  • Zurich to Phl to Phx: PHL terminals, security, time

    Arriving from Zurich on British Air with a 1 hr 55 min layover, departing on Brit Air operated by US Air: I would come in at Term A west? Leaving from A east? B? or C? I have to go through customs and immigration; do I also have to go through security (and is A to C outside security?)? Is that adequate time?

     

    Note that both flights will be operated by US Airways. Yes, everyone has to go through security after going through customs. You won't know your exact departure terminal until the day of your flight.

    Hullo I'll be flying from YQB to BOS in September with a 2hr layover in PHL. I'm an Australian citizen.Three part question: Will I go through immigration in PHL or BOS? Will I be claiming baggage between flights, and will two hours be enough time to make the connection? Cheers

     

    In Philadelphia, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. 2 hours should be enough time.
