  • Transfer from terminal C to A

    Do I need to take a shuttle form terminal C to A or can I walk? Also will I make it in 30 minutes?

     

    You can walk. However, you will more likely have to run to make the connection in 30 minutes. Hope your first flight arrives early.

     

    Is there a shuttle & would that be quicker?

     

    No, it would not be quicker.

    Hi I am flying Cleveland to Philadelphia then PHL to Dublin Ireland. I have 1 hour 36 mins to transfer flights. Will this be enough time?

     

    Yes, that is plenty of time. If you arrive in Terminal F you will take a shuttle inside security to your departure gate in Terminal A. If you arrive in another terminal you can just walk to your departure gate.

    I have a 30 minute window to transfer from american to american but not sure which terminal. Is that enough time to go from Terminal A to Terminal B? it doesn't look far but not sure if i am cutting it close

     

    Yes, it is cutting it close but it is possible if the first flight is on-time.

    Our flight from Heawthrow airport london will land in Philadelphia at 8:10 PM. Our connecting flight to Raleigh is at 10:54 PM. Is 2 hours 40 minutes enough for baggage claim, immigration check and recheck the bags for the Raleigh flight

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

    Your luggage will go straight through. You may arrive in terminal F. If you do there is a shuttle inside security to A where you will depart.

     

  • connection in PHL between YQB and LHR

    Hi all, I'm planning a flight between Qu├ębec (YQB) and London (LHR) via PHL in June. AA propose me a connection of 2h15 at PHL. The flight from YQB would arrive in terminal F and the flight to London would leave from A-west. Will I have to pass us border ? I cannot find info about us customs facility in terminal F. Will my luggage follow or will I have to check them in back ? Thanks for help !

     

    Since Quebec City doesn't have preclearance you will both arrive and depart in A. Yes in Philadelphia you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through customs, re-check your bags at the recheck desk then go through security and to your departure gate.

     

    Thanks for your answer. What do you think about connection time (2h15) ? Ok or too short ? It would be around 8pm on a thursday.

     

    In case it would influence answer, I add that I'm not US Citizen (WVP country Citizen)

     

    That Should Still Be Enough Time.

     

  • Walking time from Terminal F to Terminal A

    Approximately how long would it take a healthy active 35-yr-old adult to walk briskly from the farthest Terminal F gate to the farthest Terminal A-West gate (with just a shoulder-bag carry-on)? I have a 65-minute connection on American Airlines (Toronto-Philly-Boston) this Sunday (~5 PM so probably very busy peak time). I think the flight coming from Toronto will arrive in Terminal F and the flight leaving for Boston will presumably depart from A/B/C. If the walk from F to A/B/C is doable in 30 minutes or less, I'd rather walk and know exactly how long it will take, than risk waiting indefinitely in line for shuttles. Thanks!

     

    If you walk you have to exit security, so you really should take the shuttle, they run almost constantly.

    I am scheduled to arrive at gate F14 at 10:55 a.m. and my connecting flight departs from gate F3 at 11:35 a.m. Is this doable? Will my luggage make it too?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. As long as your first flight is on-time this is an easy connection.

    How far between Terminal A and F. Only have one hour, can I walk between terminals? Is shuttle bus inside the terminal or have to go outside?

     

    The Shuttle bus connects those terminals inside security. It obviously runs outside, it's not safe to drive bus indoors, but you won't really be exposed to the elements. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

     

  • Connection Time From Terminal B to F

    I am due to arrive at Gate B9 at 4:45PM & depart from Gate F37 @ 5:39PM. How frequently do the shuttles run & where do I get on it? Can I reasonably expect to make the connection? Thanks! Jim

     

    The shuttles run pretty much constantly. You have enough time if your first flight is on-time, but there's not much time to spare. This map clearly shows the shuttle boarding locations - https://www.aa.com/i18n/aboutUs/whereWeFly/terminals/terminal_PHL.jsp

     

    The map shows shuttles to Terminal F from: (1) mid-way between Concourse A-East & Terminal B and (2) near Gate C16 & 17. Are these separate shuttles or does a shuttle pick up at one location & then pick up at the other location before going to Terminal F? If I am pressed for time & it goes to both locations, which is the last location picked up before going to Terminal F ??

    I have a flight from Pit to PHL then PHL to Minneapolis and I have never flown through PHL before. The layover is an hour and 26 minutes long and I always get lost! If I am in Terminal A-West do I have enough time to get to Terminal B? and is it just a walking area or is there a transit we have to take?

     

    That is plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. A and B are very close to each other.

  • Where do we go through immigration

    We fly from Manchester UK to Miami via Philadelphia, where will we clear customs, do we collect our luggage between flights.

     

    In Philadelphia you will arrive in Terminal A, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate which will be in Terminal A, B, or C.

     

  • Clearing immigration with visa - enough time?

    Hi, I'm travelling in late April from Manchester UK through Philadelphia, arriving 1340, with a 1540 flight on to Cleveland. I have a work visa so I cannot use electronic immigration lanes. Does this give me enough time? Thanks.

     

    Yes, I think that will still be enough time.

     

    Thanks, ZAP

    coming back from jamaica through philli and have a 90 min layover before plane to detroit departs. sounds too close?

     

    That's just right on the minimum time. So it's possible but carries some risk if your flight from Jamaica is delayed or if there are long lines.
