  • PHL to CUN connection

    Hi, I am thinking about buying a ticket which would give me a 40 layover in PHL to CUN (Cancun). I'm worried that the layover is too short? Do you think I would be able to make it?

     

    If the first flight is domestic it is enough time but it obviously doesn't leave any time to spare if the first flight is delayed.

     

  • Quebec to Miami, PHL connection

    Hi! I'd like to know if I'll have time enough to get from Terminal F (flight from Quebec, I have to pass through US customs (or is it TSA?)) to Terminal A (flight to Miami) within 1h38min. I won't have any checked luggage.

     

    Are you coming from Quebec City or Montreal? If you are coming from Quebec City you do not arrive in Terminal F, you arrive in Terminal A where you go through US Immigration, customs, and security. If you're coming from Montreal you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal and all you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Either way you should have enough time.

     

    I arrive from Quebec, that's why I mentioned the US customs. It is odd since it's inscribed on my electronic ticket that I'll land on terminal F and my next flight is in terminal A.

     

    I will arrive from Ottawa At 5:15pm But I have connection flight to Phoenix At 6:28pm ,I have one hr ?? Do You think that i have enought time i dont want To miss My flight ✈️🛬

    I am flying internationally from PGH to CUN on AA with a connecting flight in PHL airport. Will I have to retrieve my luggage and recheck it, or do I just have to go to my connecting flights gate

     

    PGH is the code for Pantnagar, India. Are you coming from Pittsburgh? (if so the code is PIT). Assuming you are coming from Pittsburgh, all you have to do in Philadelphia on your way to Cancun is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Yes. Flying in from Pittsburgh. Sorry for the confusion and thank you for the update

    I will arrive Sunday 10/23 coming from Doha/Qatar by Qatar airways. then I have a connection from PHL to Memphis by American airlines. can you guide me what should I do when I arrive ( bag check out check in and where to go)

     

    You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate.

     

    is the re-check desk in the same area where I will claim my bags? thanks

     

    It's just after customs.

     

    Thank you very much

    Hi all. Im looking to book a flight from Manchester in the UK, with stopover for 1.5 hours in PHIL, with a flight then on to San Juan, Puerto Rico. Do I need to reclaim my bags etc in PHIL and go through customs and will 90 mins be enough? Appreciate any tips. I can book a different flight if it's not recommended although this is my preferred. Thanks.

     

    This is the bare minimum recommended international to domestic connection time at PHL. Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate.

    If both flights are on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bags in philadelphia. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.
