  • From terminal A to C - flight this suterday
    Nov 16, 2013
    Hi, I will be flying to Chicago via Philadelphia from Israel in a week from now. I wiill have a layover of about 2 hours. I will arrive in Philadelphia at gate A and depart for Chicago at gate C. How do I get to terminal C? When am I soppose to go throw customs and immigration? and do I need to go throw security again? Do you think it's anough time between the flights? Thanks a lot for your help.


    You will go through immigration in Philadelphia. Yes, you will go through security again after you re-check your bags with US Airways. You should have enough time but you won't have any time to waste. Terminals A and C are connected by a moving walkway.

    You will arrive at Terminal AEast; then use the moving walkway inside security to Terminal C - you have enough time.


  • A1 or C16 Shuttle from Terminal F
    Oct 31, 2013
    To connect flight From TF to TB, which is fastest: Shuttle to A1 or C16?


    Whichever the shuttle arrives at first.


  • UR Airways Terminal Shuttle
    Oct 22, 2013
    How often does the terminal shuttle run from Gate F to Gate C? Every 5 minutes? 10 minutes? I have a 45 minute layover on Sunday, with an incoming Air Wisconsin flight dba as US Airways Express arriving at 8:44 am and a departure flight of Republic Airlines dba US Airways Express at 9:29 am. It looks like from today's schedule that Air Wisconsin arrives at Terminal F and Republic Air at Terminal B or C. Will this give me enough time?


    It runs pretty continuously. There's a lot of people coming and going from F and the shuttle bus is the only real connection to the rest of the airport.


  • Domestic arrival C > Int'l departure A West - 50 mins?
    Oct 16, 2013
    I am looking at an itinerary that has me arriving on a domestic US air flight at C21 and departing for the UK from A21 just 50 minutes later. Is this possible?


    Yes, 50 mins is sufficient. Terminals A & B are connected by post-security walkway. Concourses B gates B1-B16, and Concourse C gates C16-C31 on opposite sides - are the two main US Airways terminals, connected by a shopping mall and a food court.


  • Arriving in Terminal B; Departing in Terminal A
    Dec 7, 2013
    We are flying US Airways RDU to PHL and then British Air PHL to LHR. US Airways will not do an interline transfer of luggage - hence, we must pick up our luggage in Terminal B and go to Terminal A to re-check it. How do we do this?


    Concourses B & A are connected at post-security areas by moving walkways. Both are right next to each others.




  • Terminal F to C
    Oct 13, 2013
    Hi I arriving at terminal F from Miami , and have a connection at Terminal B for Montreal connection of 45minutes ...all flight with Us Airways...I read some terrible review and now im freaking out that I will miss my connection i dont have custom to past only in Montreal the transfert between terminal F and C is easy ?? and will i have time to make my connection or no ???


    You are not clear At PHL you arrive at TF and need to connect to TC or TB? US Airways uses all three terminals. Free large shuttle buses, operated by US Airways , make the following connections at post-security areas, where they run fromTerminal F (gate F14) only to either gates C16 or A1; your transfer time will suffice.


  • Hi, help please
    Oct 10, 2013
    Hi, I am arriving at gate C 16 tomorrow from BDL at 1233 I depart for ORF at F 34, boarding time 130 so that gives me roughly 40 minutes to take the shuttle, USAir says no problem, guy at the airport was laughing at me. Help, please.


    The USAir shuttle bus departs AT C16, arriving at Terminal F at gate F14, signs will guide you to departing gate F34. If no airline arrival delay, you should be able to make your connection easily.


  • 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.


  • F TO C
    Sep 27, 2013


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


  • terminal A-west
    Sep 15, 2013
    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.
