    I'm flying from Lisbon to Dallas with a 2:25 stop at Philadelphia. Both flights are on US Airways. Will I have enough time to go through customs? Will I have to get my bag and check-in for the 2nd flight? What happens if I miss the second flight?


    Yes, after Immigration, you will have to claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time. If you miss your second flight because your first flight is delayed you will be put on the next available flight to Dallas.


    Hello there, I am flying from Lisbon on May 16th and would like to try and reserve the train to NYC, so i would like to know the average time we take to get through customs so i can plan accordingly. I will arrive around 13:45.


  • ORD - PHL - PUJ

    HI - We noticed AA offered a flight from ORD with a connecting flight in PHL - final destination is Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Our layover would be 48 minutes. Will there be enough time for us to make the flight?


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that will be enough time. All you have to do in PHL is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Terminal F to A
    Jan 5, 2015
    My daughter arrives in PHL terminal F from Portland and then has 1hr 50 mins to change to terminal A for flight to Glasgow UK. Is this enough time?


    Yes, it should be plenty of time. US Airways runs a shuttle bus inside security from Terminal F to the other terminals, including A.

  • 55 minute layover

    I'm going from Cincinnati to Manchester England, and stopping in PHL for 55 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.


  • Flying from PIT to PHL to PUJ
    Jul 8, 2014
    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!


  • need to make a connection to New Jersey

    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 ?
    Jun 7, 2013
    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 ?

  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.
