  • International connection from Dublin

    American Airlines from Dublin connecting through Phili to Hartford. We pass custums in Dublin but only have an hour to get connecting flight. Will that work? (flight time was changed)

     

    Yes, that is enough time as long as the flight from Dublin is on-time. All you have to do in PHL is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Hi, I'm flying with american airlines from montreal to brussel, but i have a connection in philadelphia. Will i have to go through customs and immigration again in phialdelphia? will i have to passe through security in philadelphia? If so, i have 90 minutes in between flights, is it enough time? Thank you!

     

    hi I am flighing man (uk) to Orlando florida with a flight connection at philly both flights are American airlines landing at 1350 philly and dep 1550 philly to Orlando do I need to collect my bags and is the connection time enough its a bit shorter on the way back never done an indirect flight before cheers in advance

     

    Allison, You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates are connected inside security. You have enough time.

     

    jh, after arriving from Manchester you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time. On the return to Manchester all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Thank you !

     

    Thankyou

    I am flying from London to Philadelphia on Delta, and then picking up a connecting flight on Alaska. Once I clear customs, will I be required to go through TSA security before my flight on Alaska

     

    Yes, you will.

    I am planning on flying from Bangor, ME to Fort Myers, Florida with a connecting flight in Philadelphia. We are flying with American Airlines and will have 42 minutes to change planes in Philly. Do you think that will be enough time?

     

    It's enough time if the flight from Bangor is on-time but leaves no time to spare if it's delayed.

    All flights AA: Airlline has just changed the departure time (Harrisburg, PA) from 5:55 am to 6:30 which is what is now causing the 25 min. connection time. Now arriving from Harrisburg at 7:20 (Saturday), need to make connecting flight to Toronto at 7:45 - traveling partner is already scheduled for wheelchair assistance.Will we have enough time to make the connection?

     

    It's not impossible since both flights are likely in Terminal F, but it is a big enough change that you can have AA change or refund your ticket if you're uncomfortable with it. it certainly leaves no time to spare if the flight from Harrisburg is delayed.

    hello my complete flight ticket is from American Airlines and I will fly from BGR airport to PHL airport arriving to terminal F at 8:36 am. I have a flight connection to DFW to Mexico city at 9:17 am, do I have to pass security? because I have only 31 minutes of connection, but I would like to know how far is my arrival gate to my connecting gate please and if I have a possibility to make it! thank you

     

    No, you don't have to go through security, but you do have to go all the way from F to A. It is a very difficult connection unless your flight from Bangor arrives early.

    Hi, I will have to do an international connection at PHL. My flight is from Halifax(YHZ)-PHL operated by American Airlines arriving at 08.11 and leaves to DOH from PHL operated by Qatar Airways at 09.30. Would that give me enough time to do a connection?

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Halifax. All you have to do in Philadelphia is take the shuttle bus from Terminal F where you arrive to Terminal A where you depart. It runs inside security.

     

    Hi, I will have to do an international connection as well at PHL. I will be flying from DOH to PHL and from PHL to FWA. I will be arriving PHL by Qatar Airways at 7.40am and will be leaving to FWA by AA at 10.25. How am I suppose to do the connection in PHL? Will there be enough time because I will be landing at Terminal A and will have to board the plane at Terminal F. Please advice.

     

    GTW, In PHL 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 take the shuttle bus to Terminal F. You have enough time.

    Hi, I'll be arriving from CLT on AA with a 1 hr connection to a AA flight to GLA. I'm a little nervous about the short time frame. My first visit to PHL, any advice?

     

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

     

    Thanks!

    Arriving PHL in terminal C - departure to Montréal in terminal F within 40 mini treat -- possible to make that?

     

    It's possible but it certainly doesn't leave any time to spare.

     

  • Quebec City to ORD via PHL

    I'm flying back to the states from Quebec City (YQB). Since they don't have preclearance, I assume I'll have to clear customs in PHL. My layover before my flight to ORD is 1 hour 55 minutes. Will this be enough time?

     

    I'm flying AA

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

    I'm flying American flight 700 LAX to Philly and need to make connection to #3897 (Wisconsin Air) to Portland, ME. It says "terminal change" What does that mean and is there enough time with a 1 hour connection

     

    You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in PHL. Your flight to Portland will depart from Terminal F. There is a shuttle to Terminal F inside security. You should have enough time if your flight from LAX is on-time.

    I will be coming from DFW to PHL (AA) and arrive in PHL 7:20 PM. My flight (AA) will leave for Lisbon at 8:45 PM. Is 85 minutes enough time to make it?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in PHL on your way to Lisbon is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    hi will come from punta cana with aa791 at 5.02pm and then i have to catch connection flight to zuerich at 06.20pm. is this enough? what is the fasted way to get through? arriving and departing is on gate a! thanks a lot!

     

    You have 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. You have less than the minimum international to international connection time of 90 minutes and far less than the 2 hours I recommend.

     

  • Pittsburgh to Philadelphia to Cancun

    Hello, I'm flying out of Pittsburgh (with my family and 2 small children). I'm scheduled to arrive in Philadelphia at 8:41 AM and fly to Cancun at 10:05 AM. Is that enough time? Will we go through international security in Pittsburgh or Philadelphia? Thanks!

     

    There is no such thing as "International Security" You will go through regular security in Pittsburgh. In Philadelphia all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.

    I am traveling from BOS to MCO with a connecting flight in PHL. I do not have any information yet on what gate or terminal I will need to go through once I'm in PHL. My concern is will 38 min be enough ? Will they transfer our baggage as well?

     

    what airlines are you flying? If both tickets are on the same reservation then you don't have to do anything with your bags in PHL.

     

    Both are American Airlines, do you think they will most likely fall In the same terminal for arrival and departure?

     

    Both flights will be in Terminals A, B, or C. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the flight from Boston is on-time.

     

    Are flights leaving from Boston usually on time?
