  • Using TC Security Checkpoint after International flight arrival
    Sep 29, 2013
    I fly into PHL International Terminal several times per year. I have Global Entry so customs is no longer a problem. Last Tuesday clearing Security took 45 minutes - TA is not participating in Trusted Traveler Screening, but Trusted Traveler is implemented in TC. Is there an easy way to get from terminal A to Terminal C - basically going from TA Arrivals to TC departures - So I could use the TC Security checkpoint instead of the frequently disfunctional TA security checkpoint?


    You should be able to go out to the departures level and walk along the curbside to Terminal C.

    At PHL, free large US Airways shuttle buses make connect at post-security FROM Terminal F (gate F14) To Terminal C (gates C1).

    can i walk from terminal A-West to TB and how long will it take....i have a connecting flight and a one hour forty minute lay over is that enough


    At this time of the year your transfer time should be enough: On arrival at Terminal A-West, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag. Allow at least 35-45 minutes to connecting terminal. The Customs hall of TA-West connects to Concourse A-East (oopposite ticketing), which in turn leads to the Terminal B/C connector with (gates B1-16 & C16-31).


    ty for reply......just one more question how long does it take to walk to TB

  • arrive terminal D, change to depart terminal F
    Aug 28, 2013
    if i arrive on USAir in Terminal D, but have to change plane leaving from terminal F, what gate do i go to to catch the shuttle bus, and do i have to go through security again?


    At PHL, Terminal F is on the North side of the terminal complex - a distance from the other terminals. The US Airways shuttle only makes its runs to Terminal F from Gates C16 or A1. Therefore, you would have to take the bus to Terminal C's gate 16, then take the connector to Terminal D (gates D1-16).


    US Airways does not use Terminal D. Terminal D is United, Air Canada, American, Alaska, and Delta.


  • Flying from Frankfurt to Montreal
    Aug 18, 2013
    Hi, my daughter and I will be flying to Montreal via Philadelphia from Frankfurt/Germany (flights 701 and 3984) on August 22. We will have a layover of one hour and 44 minutes. We will arrive in Philadelphia at gate A and depart for Montreal at gate F. What will be the customs and security procedures for us and will we be able to make it? I read some stories online about Philadelphia airport and am a bit worried. Thanks for your help.


    You will clear immigration in Terminal A, claim your baggage, clear customs, and re-check your bags with US Airways. You'll then go back upstairs to go through security and then take the US Airways shuttle bus to Terminal F. You will have to hope your flight is on-time and hurry. However, if you do miss your connection, US Airways has two later flights to Montreal.


  • Transportation Terminal C to A

    We will be arriving 9/27, US AIR flt 796 from LAX @ Terminal C


    You can walk between Terminals C and A.

  • Baggage transfer
    Aug 12, 2013
    1 husband and I will be flying into terminal F. We must pickup our luggage and check in for Luthansa in terminal A. Being that my husband has respiratory problems can we take a cab to departures for terminal A? If not what other options do we have?


    Why do you have to pick up your baggage? Did you purchase two separate tickets? If you do have to claim your baggage in F and take it to A, an alternative to a cab or walking would be the SEPTA train which has an E/F station and a Terminal A station. However, the train only runs once every 30 minutes. Additionally, there is no ground transportation in Terminal F, so you will have to walk to terminal E anyway. At that point it may be worth it to just continue on to A at whatever pace your husband can handle. If you did purchase your tickets on one reservation, your bags should be checked through to Lufthansa and you can take US Airways' shuttle bus on the secure side from F to A.


  • Please help! 33min conenction time PHL- im a bit worried!
    Aug 12, 2013
    Please help guys if you can, flying into phl from dca with my parentsin Sept, 33mins connection time before onward flight. Im flying from dca with us airways via republic into phl and then with us airways from phl to dallas. we land phl 0856 and onward flight to dallas is 0933. I cant seem to find whether theres enough time despite airline saying it will be fine- its worrying me though. If anyone knows the airport, gates, connections etc Id be so grateful for your help!


    If your first flight is on-time it should indeed be enough time. You can walk between your gates.

  • Seattle to JAX? How much time to Terminal F
    Jul 29, 2013
    Hi! I have one hour from the time my flight arrives from Seattle (US Airway flight 76) in Philly, to get to Terminal F to fly on flight 3259 Airways Express. I will have a 2 year old and a stroller. Is there airport help to get me to Terminal F in time? What do you advise to help me get through the airport? I am a young mother, first time traveling with a child! Than you!


    How much time do you have. US Airways has a shuttle that runs on the secure side from their other terminals to Terminal F. However, even though US Airways 3259 is a US Airways Express flight it does not depart from Terminal F, it usually departs from Terminal B it appears.

    Coming in usair from Clt on flt 1510 and leaving for YQB on usair 4030. What terminals


    You will arrive in A, B, or C and depart from F. US Airways operates a shuttle bus that runs on the secure side between these terminals. Plan on about 30 mins for your connection.
