My friend will fly in on Delta from SLC a week from today. I checked today's flight and it arrives at Terminal D. She will have a checked bag. I will fly from BGR on AA a week from today. I checked today's flight and it arrives at Terminal F. I'm hoping that I won't have to check my bag and can just go hunting for her. How would I get to her baggage claim from Terminal F?
You can just walk through the terminal to D and go out to the baggage claim there or you can exit the terminals in F and walk along the curbfront to D.
Hi. My daughter is traveling from Madrid to charlotte with a stop in phily. Will she be collecting her bags and going through customs in philly? We live in New Jersey and want to pick her up in phily. Otherwise she has to book a flight from charlotte to Newark when she lands in charlotte.
Yes, she will do all of that in Philadelphia.
is 2 hours 15 minutes enough time to clear customs in Philadelphia? Flying in from Barcelona, same connecting Airline - AA.
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying from PIT into PHL then onto Madrid (says terminal A on my ticket). I have about 1 h and 50 minutes between flights, is this enough time? Can you access all terminals in the PHL by walking or do you have to take a shuttle? It is an AA flight.
Yes, that is plenty of time. Yes, you can walk between all gates in Philadelphia inside security.
Thank you! Do you happen to know if when I arrive in Madrid with my final destination being France if I will retrieve my bags there or will they continue through to France from my original departure from PIT?
If everything is on the same reservation you won't have to claim your bags in Madrid.
I'm arriving C24 and leaving out of B11-only 40 minutes between flights - can I make it?
Yes, that's possible if the first flight is on-time.
I am on a flight back to Spain from the US and my flight will connect in Philadelphia to Madrid. There is only 1 hour in between and if I need to clear customs there will that be enough time?
There is no US customs when leaving the US. If your first flight is domestic all you have to do in PHL is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Is there a Fastrack for travellers in transit to connecting flights? I notice online it says that Pre-clearance will be available at Punta Cana apt in MAY 2017. We fly this route on July 03 2017..
I got the transfer time incorrect from my previous question to you- it is actually 2h 5 mins! Does that help us make it through customs etc and make our connecting flight or is it still too difficult? Thanks. Your advice is great.
If preclearance is open at the time of your trip then all you will have to do in Philadelphia is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. That will be plenty of time.
I arrive from Norfolk at 16:38 & leave at 20:40 for London. Does this allow enough time to walk from arrival to departure gate?
Yes, 4 hours is plenty of time.
sorry ZAP, I meant 18:38 arrival at Philli not 16:38.
Yes, that is still plenty of time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Hi, have they added a TSA Precheck line in Terminal F yet?
What is the fastest way to get from Terminal F to C? I am a fast walker but I also understand there is a shuttle. How often do the shuttles run? I have a 40 minute connection.
The shuttles run very frequently but they arrive closer to A (so past C) and if you're a fast walker, I think you can walk faster.
