I'm still wondering about getting from F to A. I've read many posts with conflicting answers. Do the shuttles run on a regular basis? Is the walking access from F to E completed and easy access? What is the distance from F to A walking? THank you for responding. I seem to be having trouble with posting.
You have enough time to take the shuttle or walk. The Shuttles run almost constantly.
Thanks
Is 34 minutes enough time to transfer from terminal C to Terminal A to catch a connecting flight?
That's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
I've read a lot about airport shuttle is unreliable, and that you can't get from F to A without going through security. How often do shuttles run, and can you actually walk there and stay inside security? Thank you
Just realised how expensive it is to get a fast track...
Is 1hr 55min enough time between landing from an international flight in PHL, going through immigration and customs, getting bags, rechecking bags, going through security, and getting to Terminal B or C for an American Airlines flight? What is a good amount of time? Thanks.
If both tickets are on the same reservation then that is just enough time. If you're booking two separate reservations I'd want closer to 3 hours.
Hi, We are looking at flying via Philadelphia from London to Las vegas. The flight get in to Terminal A at philadelphia and takes off again at Terminal 0. We have 2hr 30 change over time. Would this be enough time and is it easy to change terminals? Where would we clear customs/security-here or in LV? If we have booked it as one through ticket would our baggage go straight through to LV? Thanks for help.
You will not depart from terminal 0 as there is no terminal 0. You will depart from Terminal A, B, or C. Yes, that is enough time. In Philadelphia 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. You have enough time.
Hello. I am flying tomorrow from Newark to Philly landing in F and have to catch my connecting flight in A to Portugal. Do I have to get my bag from baggage before I go to my other flight? Also I have a 52 minute layover. Is this enough to get from F to A?
No, you don't have to do anything with your bag. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is a shuttle inside security from F to A. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Thank you
We are traveling from St Maarten to
Newark NJ but we are connecting via PHL coming into Terminal A, leaving out of Terminal F will we have to claim luggage and go through customs and immigration PHL? Also we land at 7:07 and leave at 8:30.
Yes, 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 to Terminal F. This is a very difficult connection, bordering on impossible, unless the flight from St. Maarten is significantly early.
Hello,

I will be flying from Toronto to Manchester England via. PHL. I will be going from F to A in PHL... Will I need to collect my bags again in PHL given that this is booked as one whole trip or will I just have to make my way from F to A as security screening will of been done in Toronto?

Help appreciated!
No, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
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 AA.com for your departure terminal the day of your flight. Security should be open at around 3:15 AM.
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.
