    I will be traveling from BTV to SJU. I have a 1 hour layover in PHL. I arrive at Terminal F and my next flight is in Terminal B. Will I have to go through security and will I have enough time?

     

    No, you do not have to go through security. You should have enough time.

    I will be travelling from Detroit to London connecting in Philadelphia. Arriving at terminal F and departing from termina A. Connection time is 1 hour 15 minutes. Will only be taking hand luggage. Will I have enough time.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from Detroit is on-time.

     

    Thank you

     

    I am flying from qatar going ti sju but i stop in phl at 8:00am and my next flight is at 948 do i have enough time

     

    Eri, realistically, no that's not enough time, but without checked bags it might be possible.

     

  • Time clearing Customs at PHL

    We will be flying from Dublin and clearing Customs at PHL. American changed our connecting flight to Orlando giving us only 1 hr. 40 min. Is this sufficient time? Thanks so much!

     

    Actually if you are flying from Dublin you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

     

    Thanks for letting us know this. Will we need to go thru security again?

     

    No, you will not.

     

    Thanks so much for allaying our fears of not having enough time. We very much appreciate it.

    On October 21 I will be flying into Philadelphia from Cancun. I have one hour and 15 minutes to get my connection to Pittsburgh. Is this adequate time?

     

    Realistically, no, that's probably not enough time unless your flight from Cancun arrives quite early.

     

  • 55min connection time terminal F to A on sunday morning

    Can i make it from terminal F to A on a sunday morning for 55 min connection time. Is the bus fast? How long will i wait for the bus? Is walking or running better than waiting? Do u have to go thru security if u walk it

     

    The buses run very frequently but they're not exactly fast. You no longer have to go through security if you walk.

     

    Figure i would i be in the clear next sunday since its a morning flight out of A. Do you know how long the shuttle takes to get to F to A

    How do I get from American flight to United international flight to Quebec, 1 hour 10 minutes to do the transfer,

     

    United doesn't fly from Philadelphia to Quebec. Where are you flying into Philadelphia from? Do you have checked bags? Is everything on the same reservation or two separate reservations? Please double check your reservation.

    My MIL is flying from Rome with a layover in PHL. Will she have to claim her luggage and go through security again at PHL airport? She has a 2 hour layover. Enough time?

     

    Yes, in Philadelphia she will go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to her departure gate.

    Hi. I have a flight that originates in Boston to PHL and an 1hr 24min layover to catch an international flight to the Dominican (PUJ). Do I have enough time to make the Dominican connecting flight? I think they said I need to go from Terminal B to A but I wasn't sure about needing to go through customs again.

     

    Yes, that is enough time. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Is 1hr 50 minutes enough time to connect in PHL? Same airline American ?

     

    Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do in Philadelphia on your way to Madrid is just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Would same hold true if I am arriving from toronto canada? Heading to Madrid with 1 hour 50 minute layover. Will I clear customs etc in toronto?

    We are coming back to US FROM Halifax and only have 1 1/2 hours before connection to Jax. Will that be enough time to get through immigration and customs?

     

    You will actually pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Halifax. All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    after clearing customs from an international flight, if you are not checking luggage and going to a domestic connection doo you have to go through security again?

     

    If you are not going to a connection, you do not have to go through security again. If you are going to a connection, you have to go through security, whether or not you have checked baggage.

     

    bummer....

    I am traveling from Greece to DFW via PHL. I understand I have to clear customs but will I need to go through security again. I purchase duty free items large than 3oz in liquid. Do I need to put them in luggage or am I safe to carry on?

     

    Yes, you will have to go through security again. Yes, you have to put any large liquid items in your checked baggage before you recheck it.

    On 9/29 we will be arriving from Quebec City at 12:27 pm and then departing for DFW at 2:30pm after American Airlines changed our flight times. We will have enough time to clear customs and make the flight?

  • Spain -Lima

    Hello. We are flying from Barcelona (Spain)to Lima with two connections in Philadelphia and Miami, the thing is that we have a 2 hour layout in Philadelphia and we are worried that we will not make it, we have been told that we need at least 3 hours, is that so? The two flight are with AA and we arrive at Gate A25 and depart at A3. Would you recomend getting a fast track? Thank you!!

     

    2 hours is possible. There is no "fast track". 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 in Philadelphia.
