  • Getting from Terminal F to Terminal A
    Oct 24, 2012
    1
    I arrive at Philadelphia at Terminal F at 5.19 but how do we get to Terminal A to catch our flight to LON at 10.10 and do we have to recheck in our luggage.

     

    At PHL, Terminal F is lcated on the North side of the terminal complex; you will need to take the free shuttle bus, operated by US Airways, which makes the following connections: at post-security areas between Terminals A-East/ A-West (at gate A1), and Terminal F (at gate F14). Terminal A-West is for transatlantic flights and has gates A14-26 - (this is the Terminal you will be arriving at on your way back, where you then need to go through customs clearance). Only international ARRIVALS need to go through customs/immigration process. Caution: You need to check with your first & second airline whether they will transfer your bags to your next leg of your journey - if not, you need to pick up bags, and re-check them in at your next departing airline's counter. Two hours will suffice in any case. (US Airways Express uses TF; British Airways, Lufthsa & US Airways use TA-West.

    I have about a half hour to change planes arrive TB and connect at TF to Lga. Need advice on how to make it.

     

    At PHL Airport all terminals, other than TF, are connected at post-security areas by moving walkways, and the shuttle bus connects directly to the F14 gate; transfer passengers do not need to re-enter security checks.

    we r flying in philadelhpia at 5:11 pm on terminal B from Raleigh with US airwais, and our next flight is to Istanbul from terminal A at 6:15 pm with USairways. what is the fastest way to get to there without missing our flight?

     

    Transfer passengers at PHL do not need to re-enter security checks, as Terminals B & TA-West & TA-East are connected at post-security. Simply walk to your connecting gate. US Airways uses both TA-West (gates A14-26) & TA-East (gates A1-13; the overhead screens on arrival will indicate your connecting gate.

    I will be flying into US Air Terminal B and departing US Air international Terminal B. How long does it take to get in between- is it by underground train, tram or bus? I only have an hour and 45 minutes. Thank you

     

    On arrival at Terminal B of PHL Airport, look at the overhead screens for your departing flight and gate number; then simply walk over to your connecting gate - Concourse B has gates B1-16.

     

  • Transfer from TD to TF

    I arrive on Alaska Airlines and need to transfer to U. S. Airways Express/Piedmont, which is listed for TF. I see mention of a shuttle from TA to TF - do I need a shuttle to get to TF from TD? If so which gate should I use from TD?

     

    While Terminals A through E are connected at their secured are, Terminal F is presently only accessible via US Airways; however this shuttle only serves Terminals A and Terminal B/C. Open http://www.phl.org/passengerinfo/Pages/shuttle.aspx Also look at the map at http://www.phl.org/passengerinfo/Documents/phlmap71312.swf

    arrive from manchester england at13.50.terminal a , depart 15.25 terminal b to charlotte.then on to fort myers , all on us airways . will i have timeand do my bags get transfered by the airport

     

    You will arrive at PHL Airport at Terminal A West, which houses an International Arrivals Hall and a Customs hall connected to TA-West Ticketing on one end, and Concourse A-East on the other (your connecting part of Terminal A). On arrival you go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance, then re-check-in bags where indicated. Then proceed to TA-East which has gates A1-13. On arrival at CLT Airport US Airways uses Terminals B, C, D & E - look at overhead screens to find your connecting terminal & gate. (for more information open www.ifly.com/clt and click on "Terminal Map under QUICK LINKS, scroll down to the detailed text for connections and terminal info.

  • connection time on 24th of December

    I'm traveling to Orlando with US Airlines on 24th of Dec, starting from Germany and stopping in Philadelphia. Since it's holiday, I'm worried I wont make it on time...I arrive at 4:10 pm leaving 6:05 pm. Is it possible to catch my connecting flight? Also on the way back on the 7th January, I have only 1:15 min, how is that?

     

    A 2-hr transfer time on arrival at PHL should suffice, unless your incoming plane is seriously late. All international arrival at the U.S. need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs, and - if continuing journey - re-check-in bags where indicated. Your arrival terminal will be at Terminal A-Wet (TA-West). As US Airways uses domestic Terminals TA-East (gates A1-13) and Terminals B/C (connected by shopping mall and having gates B1-16 & C16-31) you need to look at your ticket and on arrival at overhead screens for your departing gate. The terminals are connected at post-security areas by moving walkways. On your return you won't have to go through customs procedure and therefore need less time.

    I have a long layover between my international and domestic flights. I asked a friend if she'd meet me for dinner. All the restaurants appear to be after security. I'd rather not leave the airport. Any ideas?

    If I am flying with Delta should i go to terminal D or E because i am going out of D10 but they said their ticketing services are in E ?

     

    At PHL, Delta's ticketing counter is in Terminal E, while gates and baggage claim are in TD; After check-in at TE, use the moving walkway connector to TD - follow signs, which has gates 1-16.

    if i arrive in philadelphia from england uk and am on a connecting flight to charlotte -will 1 hr 35 be enough time for me to get through security etc on or around 19th october

     

    All international arrivals need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through customs clearance, and (if proceeding with journey) re-check-in bags. Do make sure your first airline will transfer bags to the connecting airline's flight - if not you need to take your bag and check it in at the connecting terminal. Open www.ifly.com/phl and click on 'Terminal Map' - then scroll down to the text to find your arriving and departing terminal and how to connect.

     

  • enough time to catch connecting flight?

    We are arriving in December from Amsterdam (US 799, at 15.50) and have a connecting flight to San Juan (US 741, at 17.55) and are worried if we can make it in just 2h 5min through immigration, baggage claim, customs, re-checking luggage (where?), getting boarding passes (transfer desk or directly at the new gate?). Can anyone tell which waiting times we wiill have to expect and if we have to be concerened abobut getting our connecting flight?

     

    Two hours transfer time should suffice - unless you travel during Christmas time. Normal customs clearance/baggage claim re-check should not be more than 50 mins. You need not do anything else thereafter, but proceed to your connecting gate (watch the overhead screens), as you use the same Airline for both legs of your journey and you bags will be transferred.

     

    so we ARE travelling during Christmas time (Dec 25 or Dec 26) :-( - how long do you think it might take in the worst case and will we get our flight even though?

    Does anybody know how long it takes to get from Terminal E to Terminal A

     

    AT PHL, all terminals , except TF, are connected at their gate area by moving walkways - no need to go through security check; however, count at least on a 30-minute transfer.

     

  • Concourse D to Concourse F

    Arriving in PHL and traveling onward to Halifax from Concourse F; what is the best way to get from D to F? Walk or bus?

     

    1. A free shuttle bus, operated by US Airways , makes the following connections: at post-security areas between Terminals B/C (at gate C16) and Terminal F at gate F14). On arrival at D gates use the moving walkway to F gate F14. You won't have to go through security check again, but count on at least 30 mins transfer time. As all terminals, other than TF, are connected at post-security areas by moving walkways, and the shuttle bus connects directly to the F14 gate, transfer passengers do not need to re-enter security checks. A free shuttle bus, operated by US Airways , makes the following connections: at post-security areas between Terminals A-East/ A-West (at gate A1), and Terminal F (at gate F14), and between Terminals B/C (at gate C16) & F (gate F14). As all terminals, other than TF, are connected at post-security areas by moving walkways, and the shuttle bus connects directly to the F14 gate, transfer passengers do not need to re-enter security checks.

     

    Just to make sure I understand your message above correctly - if I take the walkways I don't have to go through security again but it takes 30 minutes? And if take the shuttle I won't have to go through security either? How long does it take by the shuttle?

     

    Duhh I was reading post security to mean that I would be outside of the secure area; when in fact it means after you have cleared security. Sorry

    Hello ! What is the normal amount of time needed to get from TA to TF. Arrival at 16:10 // Departure at 17:54. When the time allows, can I exit the Airport (where ?) to smoke outside and then re-enter the Airport ???

     

    Forgot to say, the Arrival is from Germany and the Departure is to GSO (Greensboro)

     

    As an international arrival at PHL, you need to go through passport check, pick up bags, go through Customs clearance and re-check-in your bag at dedicated area. (Assuming that your first airline will transfer your bags to the connecting US Airways Express flight (otherwise you need to take your bag with you and check it in at TF's airline counter.) This procedures takes 35-50 mins. Thereafter, you need take the free shuttle bus, operated by US Airways, makes the following connections: at post-security areas between Terminals A-East/ A-West (at gate A1), and Terminal F (at gate F14) - add an extra 30 mins. for transport.
