    I am from Nepal. I will arrive to PHL (terminal A) from Doha around 8 in morning. I've 2 hour layover. Then i need to catch another flight to denver from terminal B. Is two hour time is enough to go to custom, baggage claim, immigration, security checking? Will USairways allow me another flight incase if i miss the flight?


    Yes, 2 hours should be enough time. And yes, if you miss your flight due to delays at Immigration or a delayed inbound flight, you will be rebooked on the next available flight to Denver.


  • flight from Montreal to Doha via philadelphia
    Oct 7, 2014
    My daughter is travelling to Doha from Montreal via Philadelphia. She arrives at Terminal F on Air Wisconsin and has to get to Terminal A for her Doha flight on Qatar Airways. She bought her ticket all together. Does she have to clear customs in Philadelphia or can she do that in Montreal? Will she have to claim her bags and recheck them in? If she has a french passport does she need and Esta if she is just transiting in the US?


    She will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. All she has to do in PHL is go from her arrival gate to her departure gate, which are connected by a shuttle bus inside security. Yes, she does have to complete ESTA from what I can tell.


    Thank you :)

    I'm flying from Nashville TN to Binghamton NY with a connecting flight in Philidelphia I have a 59 min layover will this be enough time for me to catch the connecting flight?


    Yes, that should be enough time. Your flight to Binghampton will likely leave from terminal F, which is connected to the other terminals by a shuttle bus inside security.

    My flight from Miami will land in the B concourse at 10:14PM. I then have to catch a flight to Baltimore at 10:55PM. Do I have enough time? Do shuttles run as frequently that late at night?


    Yes, the shuttles run any time there are flights. It should be enough time as long as your first flight is on-time.

    Hi, I am landing in Philly from Boston (terminal b) and then connecingt to Halifax canada (terminal c). Is 35 min enough time?


    Yes, that is very doable. All gates are connected inside security by walkways. However it obviously doesn't leave much time to spare in the case of delays.


  • logistical question

    Arriving from Budapest (via London) in PHL, then connecting to a Denver flight. Assuming I will have to go through customs in PHL then recheck bag (?). And how long do I need to get from Terminal A to E (I think it's E; it's a Southwest flight to Denver). Thanks for the input/info


    If you're flying Southwest to Denver then you cannot drop your bag at the re-check desk after clearing customs. You will have to take it with you to Terminal E to the Southwest check-in counter. Southwest does not have Interline agreements with any other airlines. You need at least 2 hours for your transfer, preferably 2.5 hours.


  • Is it One Hour Enough to Go from Terminal B to Terminal F?
    Sep 24, 2014
    I'll take a flight from SFO to Montreal w/ a stop at PHL. I have less than an hour to walk from Terminal B to Terminal F. Will my carry on need to be checked again? Will I have enough time to take the next flight?


    You actually can't walk from Terminal B to Terminal F. Instead there is a shuttle that runs inside security. You have enough time. If your bag didn't fit in the overhead or under the seat on the way from Montreal it probably won't fit on the way back either.


  • New Terminal F
    Sep 23, 2014
    Is it true Terminal F does not have a TSA Pre-Check? Are there any tips concerning getting through security more quickly?


    Terminal F does not have security checkpoints at all. You access it via a shuttle bus from the other terminals.


  • Toronto to Kuala Lumpur via PHL
    Sep 24, 2014
    Hi, My stopover in PHL is 2h on the way to KL and 1h 36m on the way back to Toronto. I'd like to know if I would need to re-check my bags in PHL on the way to AND way back from KL? If so, is the transit time sufficient to do this? Thanks Kevin


    You do not have to claim and re-check your bags on the way to Kuala Lumpur as you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. On the way back however, you will, assuming PHL is your entry point to the United States.


    Thanks so much Zap. Is 1h 36mins sufficient to check out & re-check in at PHL on the way back to Toronto?

    Traveling USAir DIA to Venice through PHL. If checked bag in DIA, do I need to retrieve checked bag to go through customs again in PHL?


    If DIA is Denver then you do not retrieve the bag or go through customs in Denver. There is no US Immigration/Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I am flying to Edinburgh, Scotland, in to Philadelphia on United from Orlando and out trans Atlantic to Edinburgh with only 1 hour 20 mins between flights. Is that enough time?


    Are you use you aren't on US Airways? They have a hub in Philadelphia, not United. Also, Yes, that should be enough time. All you will have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Airport Marriott to A-West
    Sep 19, 2014
    First time in an airport. Staying overnight at Airport Marriott to catch early morning flight. How do I get from Airport Marriott to Terminal A-West? Do I have to go outside and catch shuttle or can I do walk it from inside? How long does it take?


    The Marriott is connected directly to Terminal B via a skybridge. From there you can walk to Terminal A if necessary.


  • BWI to Cancun via PHL
    Sep 16, 2014
    Hi, we will be flying from Baltimore to Cancun with a connecting flight in PHL with US Airways. Our connecting time is 55min, which according to the airline will be fine. Just wondering if this will be enough time barring any delays. As I understand, we won't need to clear security again in PHL, just walk from gate to gate (I'm not sure which terminals are involved yet)?


    Yes, you have the procedure correct. You will likely arrive in Terminal F, which will require taking a shuttle to Terminal A where your Cancun flight will depart.
