    I'm going from Cincinnati to Manchester England, and stopping in PHL for 55 minutes...is that workable? Also, If I miss my flight do they put me on another flight or do I have too purchase another ticket?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you arrive in Terminal F, it is connected to the other terminals by a shuttle bus. Yes, if you miss your connection they will rebook you. Although that may not be until the next day.

    I have to check a bag in PIT. Do I have to pick up my bag in PHL and go through security and customs again in order to get my flight to Punta Cana. I have a 1 hr and 20 min layover. Is this enough time?

     

    Your bag should be transferred to your next flight, you won't need to pick it up. When you arrive at the airport all terminals are connected, so you'll be behind security and won,t have to go through Customs again.

     

    You do not go through US Immigration or customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Awesome! Thank you!

    Im flying into philly airport and I need to know how to make a connection, either by rail or bus to Atlantic city, NJ. Also if anyone knows how long it will take to get from philly terminal to the connection place. Thank you.

     

    There's a greyhound bus from downtown Philadelphia to Atlantic City for $15. However, the easiest method would probably be to take the SEPTA Airport Line to 30th St. Station and then the NJ Transit Atlantic City Line to Atlantic City.

     

  • Customs allowances ?

    UK citizen travelling to Philadelphia June 27 on BA. Wish to bring in 2 x 70cl bottles of Single Malt Whisky as gifts. What are the allowances for International visitors to Philadelphia and how much duty would be payable ?

     

    https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/190/kw/duty%20free%20allowance If you are traveling alone you will be over your duty limit and will have to pay duty on the second bottle. It should only be a few dollars though.
