  • Transfer YYZ to PHIL to MAN

    I am flying from Toronto International Airport to PHIL with American Airlines and then onto Manchester UK with Iberia (booked together). I have 1h30 to transfer in PHIL, is this enough time? Will I have to collect my bags and check in again, or are bags forwarded automatically? Do I need an ESTA for my connection? (Note I am a UK citizen with a Canadian study permit). Thanks.

     

    Note that your flight to Manchester will also be operated by American. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I have a 6:00 a.m. Flight from Boston to PHL on AA, arriving at 7:25. Connecting flight to FLL leaves at 8:15. If both are in Terminal B I guess it should be okay, but if connection is in Terminal C will we make it??? Thank you!!

     

    Yes, that is enough time, all gates at PHL are connected inside security.

    I'm flying into PHL from SFO at 16.38 on American Airlines. Not sure which terminal I will arrive at (B?), but then I need to transfer to a British Airways flight to London at Terminal A, which leaves at 18.40. My flight from SFO has a BA flight number. Do I have to pass through customs at PHL, or will I do this at SFO. Can I check my bags all the way through? If I do need to go through customs at PHL, will I make it?

     

    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. If all flights are on the same reservation you just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in PHL. You have plenty of time.

    Hi, my friend and I will fly from Boston to Munich (Germany) via PHL with AA. Our Boston flight is scheduled to arrive at 5:58 pm with our connecting AA flight to Munich leaving at 6:55 pm. I don't know terminals/gates yet, but is this generally doable? Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be possible if the flight from Boston is on-time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Hello, on 30 Oct, I will fly from London and arrive at PHL airport at 15.55 (Terminal A). And I have another flight connection flying from PHL to Atlanta (departs from Terminal C at 18.30) Do I need to pass any process when I change the terminal? I have around 2 hr and 30 mins leftover, would that be enough for changing the terminal?

     

    Yes, when you arrive in Philadelphia you will go through US immigration, claim your bags, got through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate in C via walkways. You have enough time.

    Arriving on southwest terminal E claiming baggage then going to terminal A to check in to BA flight. Can I walk inside between terminals dragging mh bags? Thanks

     

    I believe you will have to pop outside for a little bit. The lobby doesn't run all the way from E to A uninterrupted.
