  • gate checking - how far is it
    Apr 22, 2015
    How do I get from usair arrival gate to usair flagstaff gate which is on a tarmac


    You walk - all US Airways gates in Phoenix are connected inside security.


    Thanks--but what I meant was, how far away was the connection--I use a cane and what I remember from a year ago-it was quite a walk from one connection to the next--and without knowing the gate # I was trying to decide if I need assistance--since I only have 20 min between arrival & departure of next flight


    You only have 20 minutes? That would be difficult. You should call US Airways and request wheelchair service.


    Thank you, I will do that! Would the electric cart be a faster alternative!


    That is why I suggested wheelchair service. That is how you get taken in the cart.


    Thanks again for your help--

    Arriving from Houston to PHX at 9:11 and connecting flight is 9:49 from PHX to OAK. Is 38 minutes enough time to meet this connection? They are both US Airways and in Terminal 4. I'm not familiar with the airport layout. Thanks in Advance.


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thanks again!

    How do I get from terminal 2 to terminal 3?


    What airport are you talking about? What airlines are you flying?


    I see that you are talking about PHX now. There is a shuttle bus. It isn't frequent. Leave plenty of time for your connection.

    Do we pick up our luggage in Phoenix to clear customs before proceeding to the new gate?


    Yes, you do.


  • Coming in from Calgary
    Feb 24, 2015
    Have a flight to LAX from Calgary, ab Canada with a connecting flight in Phoenix of one hour. Both flights are with us airways, but due to us being canadian will we have enough time? Do we have to go through customs/immigration, etc or is that all done in Calgary? We arrive and depart in terminal 4


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. All you have to do in Phoenix is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • Southwest to US Air connection

    Do I have to go through security to transfer between US Air and Southwest flights?


    As long as you do not have checked baggage, and you check in for your southwest flight online before you leave on your US AIrways flight you will not have to exit security. All gates in Terminal 4 are connected inside security.

    looks like connection has changed for US air arrive in terminal a and looks like make connection on next flight on terminal there a people mover or is quickest to walk and are there any security issues I need to go through between these two terminals.I have 55 minutes to make connection.


    Phoenix does not have a "Terminal B". All US Airways flights use Terminal 4, which contains concourses A and B, which are just two different wings of the same building. You can simply walk from A to B. It's not that far.


  • Transfer from BA to US Airways

    Considering travelling to Flagstaff via Phoenix. Arriving with BA from Heathow and then on to Flagstaff with US Airways. Roughly 2 hrs 40 mins in between and I think these are both Terminal 4. Sound feasible?


    Yes, that should be quite possible.


  • Time for connection?
    Dec 30, 2015
    Arriving 9:25 on Southwest. Must go to baggage claim and then to U S Airways and check-in for 11:15 to Santa Barbara. Are those 3 destinations close enough for easy connections? Thanks


    It's enough time but there's very little to spare for any possible delays. Both airlines use Terminal 4 but you will have to go to the departure level and to the other side of the terminal. If your flight is more than a half hour late you won't make your connection.


  • 43 minute connection time
    Dec 17, 2014
    Booking a ticket on US Airways from SFO to Cancun with a 43 minute connection. That seems very tight to me, but since it's directly available on the US Airways website, who am I to argue? Never been to PHX, so no idea how big the terminals are and if international is separate, that sort of thing. Is that connection time too tight? Bags would be checked through to CUN, so it's just a matter of getting from one gate to the other.


    All US Airways gates at PHX are in the same terminal. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. 43 mins is enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • 60-70 min layover

    Will we have enough time to catch our connection? US airways flight lands at 6:50am and our connection is Hawaiian Airlines at 8:00am. Super nervous.


    It's barely enough time if you don't have checked bags or you purchased your tickets together. It will be difficult for you to get the bags to Hawaiian before their bag cutoff if you have checked bags and purchased the tickets separately.


    I booked it together so the bags will go to the final destination. Guess we better run since they are being less than helpful moving our flight to the day before :(


  • Cancun to PHX connection
    Oct 24, 2014
    We have an 1:30 layover arriving from Cancun to PHX on Saturday after Thanksgiving, both flights are US Airways, arrival 7:36 p.m. do we have enough time to clear Customs, gather our bags, recheck, then make our connection? I know this is busy season so I am a little concerned. We are a family of 5 in the middle of the plane. Thank you for your advice.


    Saturday after Thanksgiving shouldn't be too bad and Phoenix doesn't have many international flights. You should be OK.


    Thank you! Definitely don't want to end our vacation in a stressful situation. Appreciate you taking the time to respond. Enjoy the day.

    I am arriving in PHX on US Airways and departing on United with a 1 hr 30 min layover. Will I need to exit the secure area to change airlines ? Will I have enough time to do so ?


    Yes, you will, United uses a different terminal from US Airways. 1 hr 30 mins should be enough time but doesn't leave much time to spare.


  • 50 min layover

    I am flying from Salt Lake City to NY via Phoenix. I land at 8:58pm and depart again at 9:50. is 50 min enough time to make connection on a US Airways flight from SLC to American Airlines flight to EWR? No baggage to check. Both flighs in terminal 4. Thanks. Teenager travelling solo.


    Both flights will be US Airways. You should have plenty of time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • American Airlines connections
    Sep 22, 2014
    I am considering a flight from Seattle to Phoenix which gives me a 44 minute layover to catch a connecting American Airlines flight to San Jose, Costa Rica. Is this enough time to make my connecting flight? Are American Airlines gates all in the same area and inside security so that we don't have to go through security again? Will this be enough time to get connecting flight?


    Your flights will actually be operated by US Airways (assuming they haven't fully merged with American by the time of your flight). All US Airways gates at PHX are connected inside security. That should be enough time but doesn't leave much buffer for delays.
