I Will go from Jacksonville to Amsterdam through Philadelphia. Is 1:30 hours enough to go from onze gate to the other?
Yes, that is plenty of time.
I am flying from Toronto International Airport to PHIL with American Airlines and then onto Manchester UK with Iberia (booked together). I have 1h30 to transfer in PHIL, is this enough time? Will I have to collect my bags and check in again, or are bags forwarded automatically? Do I need an ESTA for my connection? (Note I am a UK citizen with a Canadian study permit). Thanks.
Note that your flight to Manchester will also be operated by American. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I have a 6:00 a.m. Flight from Boston to PHL on AA, arriving at 7:25. Connecting flight to FLL leaves at 8:15. If both are in Terminal B I guess it should be okay, but if connection is in Terminal C will we make it??? Thank you!!
Yes, that is enough time, all gates at PHL are connected inside security.
Hello on my way back to Europe I only have a 50 min layover in PHI, I arrive with united and the other is with Lufthansa I did buy the tickets together so you think the 50min is reasonable and if they are taking care of the suitcases? Kind regards Sylvia
Yes, that's possible although you will have quite a long walk in Philadelphia.
I'm flying into PHL from SFO at 16.38 on American Airlines. Not sure which terminal I will arrive at (B?), but then I need to transfer to a British Airways flight to London at Terminal A, which leaves at 18.40. My flight from SFO has a BA flight number. Do I have to pass through customs at PHL, or will I do this at SFO. Can I check my bags all the way through? If I do need to go through customs at PHL, will I make it?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. If all flights are on the same reservation you just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in PHL. You have plenty of time.
Hi, my friend and I will fly from Boston to Munich (Germany) via PHL with AA. Our Boston flight is scheduled to arrive at 5:58 pm with our connecting AA flight to Munich leaving at 6:55 pm. I don't know terminals/gates yet, but is this generally doable? Thanks
Yes, that should be possible if the flight from Boston is on-time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
My AA flights have just been changed, as well as my layover of 3 hours to 1 1/2 hours. I'm flying from Punta Cana to Maine via PHL. Will this be enough time?
It's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
my daughter is flying from MAN to PHIL and then onto MONTREAL. She has two hours to get from term A to term F is this enough time and what is the process?
She will arrive in A, go through US Immigration, claim her bags, got through US Customs, re-check her bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take a shuttle bus to F.
I am flying in from Memphis TN on my way to Hartford Ct. I have an hour layover. I need to get from Terminal c to Terminal F. Will this work?
Yes, that is enough time.
I am arriving at PHL at 17:07 from Baltimore (with American, terminal F), and I have a connection to A West (A22) for Paris at 6:30 (again American). Is that enough time to go from F to A West?
Yes, that is enough time. There is a shuttle from F to A inside security.
