  • Enough time if coming from Amtrak

    If coming from Amtrak 30th st Station and arriving at 5:23 AM Flight on Spirit Term A-East departing at 6:05? no checked luggage Or Carry on.

     

    you are on an Amtrak train arriving at 30th street 5:23 AM and are planning on getting on a flight leaving PHL at 6:05 AM? No, that would be completely impossible, even if Amtrak was on-time, which it never is. Also, 30th street station is 8 miles from PHL.

    Hi there four of us leaving Toronto Pearson heading to San Juan Puerto Rico with a stop over of 1 hour 30 minutes in Philadelphia. Will the terminals be the same? is this a smooth transition?

     

    also is there any good places to have breakfast?

     

    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. All gates are connected inside security. You have plenty of time.

    I'm flying from AMS to JAX, with a layover in PHL. The flight lands at 1:30pm and my next flight is at 4:10pm. I only have a carryon bag. What is the procedure? Do I have enough time?

     

    You will go through US Immigration, customs, and security and then to your departure gate. You have enough time.

    My American Airlines Flight to Montego Bay leave Pearson and connect in Philly.I need to know the connecting procedure in Philly. Do I need to collect and re-check my luggage.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in PHL is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you arrive in Terminal F it is connected to the other terminals inside security by a shuttle bus.

     

    Thanks for your quick response. Do I have to go through the regular security check(s) before boarding the shuttle.

     

    No, the shuttle connects the terminals INSIDE security.

     

  • 1 hour 10 minutes for YYZ - PHL - LHR?

    I booked a flight with a long layover in Philly to account for any issues, but American moved us to a later flight several months after I booked. We now just have 1 hour 10 minutes in Philly. Will that be enough time? We arrive in Terminal A, our flight to London departs from Terminal F. We are arriving from Toronto, so I don't think we have to go through customs and collect bags in Philly, correct? I'm wondering if we'll be ok with the rebook or if I should call and get put back on the earlier flight.

     

    You have your terminals reversed. You will arrive in F and depart from A. Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in PHL is take the shuttle bus from Terminal F to Terminal A. You have enough time.

    Hi we arrive at Terminal A at 16.29 from Cancun and then have to make a connecting flight at 18.20 at Terminal A to London. Do we have to recheck bags and will this be sufficient time?

     

    Yes, you will have to 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 should have just enough time.

     

    Thanks Zaf, we may rebook a later flight to be on the safe side

    My son arrives in Terminal A Gate 23 at 3:32pm from Barcelona. His connecting flight is in Terminal F Gate 31 and leaves at 5:55pm. Any pointers on what he has to do after his Barcelona flight arrives (customs, quick tips, etc.) Thanks!

     

    He will go through US Immigration, claim his bags, go through US Customs, re-check his bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the shuttle bus to his departure gate in Terminal F. He should have enough time.

     

    Thanks so much, ZAP. I'll tell him to hustle - that list helps immensely.

    I am arriving from Milwaukee at gate F29 going to Venice in Terminal A. If flight is on time, I will have 1.5 hours to make connection. Will that be enough time?

     

    You just have to take the shuttle bus from Terminal F to Terminal A inside security. You have enough time.

     

    Thank you very much for your quick response. How long will it take to take the shuttle between terminals. Thank you.

     

    Probably about 15 minutes.

    We are arriving at PHL from San Diego at 19.45 on American Airlines and have a connecting AA flight to Manchester UK at 20.55. Is this enough time?

     

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

     

    So do we not need to go through security again?

     

    We are flying from philly to Punta canta - leaving at 7am Saturday morning. Give the tsa issues, what time do we need to be at the airports? No customs leaving the us - right?

    Hi I will be travelling from Ottawa and will reach PHL at 8 am Terminal F. My connecting flight to Doha leaves from terminal A @10am. Is it enough to make the connection and do i need to claim my luggage and drop it off again for my onward flight?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa. You don't have to do anything with your bags in Philadelphia. You just have to take the shuttle bus from Terminal F to Terminal A inside security. You have enough time.

     

    Thanks ZAP

    Scheduled in September on AA from CDG to PHL. Arriving at 3:50 PM. Will be connecting to Delta for flight to ATL departing at 6:00 PM (separate reservation). Is this enough time? Does Delta have a bag drop after customs in PHL? Or do I have to haul my bags to Terminal D for check in?

     

    You will have to take your bags to Terminal D to recheck them with Delta. This is a very difficult connection. It depends on your flight from Paris arriving on-time and then lines at immigration and security being short.
