    That time should be sufficient.

    Can I pick up an arriving passenger on the departures road at terminal F?

     

    Meet your party at the arrivals door for Terminal E.

    My son is travelling from CIncinnati to Manchester changing at Philadeplhia. He arrives at Terminal C at 7.55pm and leaves from Terminal A at 8.50pm to Manchester on 31.8.14. As he is travelling on his own, I wonder if u could let me know if this will be enough time for him to catch the connecting flight home.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All he has to do in PHL on his way to Manchester is to walk from his arrival gate to his departure gate, which are connected by walkways inside security.

     

    Thank u very much for your reponse. U have put my mind at rest now

     

  • Electronic devices connecting flight

    Hi, when you fly from Europe to the US electronic devices need to be able to be switched on and be fully charged before flying to the US. We will fly from Amsterdam to Philadelphia and from Philadelphia to Knoxville. After the roughly 9 hr flight from Europe to the US I'm pretty sure the iPad and iPods batteries will be done. Will this be a problem for our flight from Philadelphia to Knowxville? Are we allowed to bring those kind of devices on board with empty batteries when you have a connecting flight? Thanks for the help!

     

    They do not have that requirement when going through security at US Airports.

     

  • 2.5 hours to change | Terminal A West to Terminal F | Can I make it?

    Hi, I am arriving in PHL from London on BA67 at 16.10hrs. I have a domestic connection flight to Roanoke on AA4840 at 1845. This gives men about 2.5 hrs. I think I arrive in Terminal A West, while my connection is in Terminal F. I am not a US citizen. Will I be able to make it to my connection flight? Do I have to check out and check in my baggages again?

     

    Yes, when you go through immigration you will then claim your bags and go through US customs. Then you will be able to re-check them at the re-check desk. Note that your flight to Roanoke will be operated by US Airways (it probably won't be all called American by the time of your flight). Then you will go through security and take a shuttle bus to Terminal F. You should have enough time.

     

    You have sufficient time for transfer. On arrival at Terminal A West you will go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance & re-check-in your bag. A big U.S. Airways shuttle bus will take you from Gate A1 to gate F14 inside security.

    I am flying from gate B to Orlando at 10:05 am on a Saturday. I am told security lines as of late at PHL are awful. I will have 3 children with me so I want to give myself plenty of time. Any suggestions as to what time I should arrive to check my luggage and go thru security. I am flying US Airways.

     

    2 Hours before the flight should be sufficient. Even though you will have to check bags if you check in online that will save you some time.

     

    Also, Saturdays are the least busy day.

    I need to drop off my family at the taxi/limo area then return our rental to Hertz and then rejoin them for a cab ride to downtown. How do I do that?

     

    Take the rental car shuttle back to the terminal you dropped your family off at and then go get a cab.

    I arrive Oct 9 @ 17:11 Terminal F. I depart for Munich @ 18:30 Terminal A. My first question is, will I have enough time to get through customs and make my flight? Second question is, do I take the secure shuttle from terminal F to terminal A? Third question is, do I have to recheck my baggage or is it automatically done for me?

     

    Yes, you need to take the secure shuttle from F to A and should have enough time if your first flight is on-time. You won't have to do anything with your baggage.
