    We will belying us airways on both flights. We land at 8:55pm and depart again at 9:40. I'm pregnant so running isn't really a super great option. Will we make it? Should we request for help?

    Arriving PHX on US Airways at 2:16 departing US Airways to TUS at 3:18. Will the gates be fairly close together?


    All US Airways gates at PHX are in the same terminal and connected inside security.


    Thank you

    We are flying Southwest into Phoenix on 4/27/14. We land at 7:55am and transfer to another southwest flight to Orange County airport leaving at 8:30am. Will we have enough time to make our connecting flight?


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that should be enough time. All Southwest flights in PHX are in the C and D concourse of Terminal 4 and connected beyond security.


  • PHX to YUM - 28 min layover
    Feb 8, 2014
    Anyone done this one recently? Arrive in PHX 07:52, leave for YUM 08:20. Will I have to run b/w flights to make it?


    Is your arriving flight also on US Airways? If so you can make it but you'll have to run. If not you have no chance.

    Arriving on Southwest from Sacramento, flight will be delayed and no time left to get to next Southwest flight goes to San Antonio from gate D7 to C2 how far is that?


    They are in adjacient "fingers" of the terminal. Maybe a 5-10 minute walk.


  • Tucson to Cancun through PHX... Enough time?
    Dec 12, 2013
    Question: arrive from Tucson on U.S. 40 minutes to catch U.S. Flight to Cancun. Where do I go through immigration? Enough time?


    If both of your flights are on US Airways and your flight is on-time you will have enough time. All you will have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will go through Mexican immigration in Cancun.


    Thank You

    Flying Vancouver,Canada to Mexico and have 48 minutes to change planes in Phoenix. Both flights are US Airways. Enough time?


    Yes, it should be. You will pre-clear US Immigration in Vancouver so all you will have to do in Phoenix is go from gate to gate.

    I am arriving in PHX on SWA and transferring to a US Airways flight. No checked bags. Do I have to go through a security checkpoint to change airlines?


    Both airlines serveTerminal 4 - no need for security check. A moving walkway connects all gates areas A through D on three sides of the food court

    I have to go from terminal 4 to terminal 3 how long will it take??


  • need to switch airlines and make connection
    Oct 3, 2013
    7:35 arrival SW air and 8:40 departure US Air both Term 4 but have to check golf clubs.....what i the quickest way to make the connection. Have to go to baggage and then back?? Is the security line a problem???


    You don't have enough time to claim your bags then re-check with US Airways, then go through security and to your gate. Southwest does not transfer bags to any other airline. You need to either go without your golf clubs, have them shipped ahead of your trip, or pay to have your ticket changed (if there is still ticket availability in the same fare class as what you bought, you can change your Southwest ticket with no change fee). You really shouldn't have bought those tickets without doing some research first.


    ZAP you confirmed all of our fears however with a little luck and A little hustle and a little airport knowledge and charm WE MADE our connection!!!!! Never say never :)


  • enough time to catch flights?
    Sep 15, 2013
    Will arrive on Great Lakes at 350pm in terminal 2; need to catch a Southwest at 525pm in teminal 4. will I have enough time for everything?


    To get from either Terminal 2 to Terminal 4, you must leave the secure area and catch the shuttle bus at the curb - therefore, you will need to go through security check at T4; a moving walkway connects all gates A through D on three sides of the food court. Yu have no time to waste! I suggest you open, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • 50 min. between connection do-able?
    Sep 10, 2013
    Southwest flight arr. PHX at 9:25; connection (also Southwest) leaves 10:15 for EWR. Is 50 min. too tight of a connection to make?? I'm hoping same gate area.


    Yes, that should be enough time assuming your first flight is on-time.

    Have a US Air Flt. arriving at 6:38am in Term. 4 and need to make connecting Hawaiian flt. that leaves at 8 am. in Term. 3. What's the best way to get from 4 to 3 in time? Thanks


    You have to take a shuttle bus. If you have bags to transfer yourself you'll really have to hurry. With carry ons only or if US Airways will transfer your bags, you'll be OK if your flight is on-time. Check-in online for your Hawaiian flight before you leave so that you don't miss the check-in cutoff.

    I know Southwest Airlines operates out of Terminal 4. Does anyone know Concourse?


    T4 of PHX has on level 3 North & South gateways. Southwest uses the three South gateways reached after Security checkpoints D & C for gate areas D1-D8, C1-C10 & C11-C20.
