  • Term 2 to Term 4
    Dec 17, 2015
    12/23/15 arriving United at 11am in term 2 with baggage check. Depart AA at 2pm in term 4. Is there easy way to get to 4 or all walking? Is there first class security check in in PHX?


    Yes, there is now a train that runs outside security between terminals. Yes, there is priority security for first class passengers in Terminal 4. You should have enough time.


  • Vancouver to Phoenix to Guadalajara
    Dec 15, 2015
    I arrive from Vanc. to Phoenix and have 1 hr. 10 min. to get flight to Guadalajara. All flights American Airlines. Do I have enough time to make Guad. flight? Do I go through customs too? Is luggage transferred to Guad plane automatically? Also... customer reviews are not great for Amer. airlines... any one have any experiences I should note? Many thanks. Linda


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. All you have to do in Phoenix is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time. American's operation in Phoenix is pretty reliable.


  • Making connection in time
    Dec 19, 2015
    I have a flight with AA 2992 4 arriving to terminal and need to connect to terminal 2 to board United Airlines 1552. I have about 1 hour can I make it?


    If you are already checked in for your United flight online and don't have checked baggage, you can make it if your AA flight is on-time. Otherwise I don't think it's possible. You will have to go through security again in Terminal 2.


    Doubt it! We had 1 hour 30 minutes and hustled...didn't make it because the security line was ridiculous!


  • Making Connecting Flight
    Dec 6, 2015
    I have a 57 min lay over with a plane change. Flying in on flight AA 649 and departing on flight 5642. What is the distance from arriving gate to departing gate? My itinerary does not show gate info.


    You won't know your gates until the day of your flight. You can get between any two AA gates in Phoenix in less than 15 minutes. You should have enough time.


  • Making a Connection in time
    Dec 10, 2015
    I am flying into Phoenix on Dec 19th with AA flight #457 getting in @10:05am and Departing on AA flight #584 to Edmonton, Alberta Canada @11:15am. I have a lay over in Phoenix for 1hr 10m will this be enough time to make my connection? and will I be leaving from the same terminal or should I swithch to a different flight with 2-1/2hr connection time.


    All American Airlines flights are in the same terminal. All you have to do in Phoenix is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.


    Thank you for the information I will continue with my booked flight


    I am flying into PHX from Salt Lake City and then getting a flight to London Heathrow. They are both in Terminal 4. Will I need to go through security and will I need to re-check in my baggage?


  • making my connecting flight
    Nov 17, 2015
    i am flying in on southwest on DEC second and changing planes, my connecting flight is also southwest are the terminals in the same place i have 50 minutes in between will i have time, never been to this airport before.


    Yes, that should be enough time as long as your first flight is on-time. All Southwest gates are connected inside security.


  • Close flight time
    Nov 12, 2015
    I am flying into Phoenix dec 29 arriving 8:10pm leaving on southwest flight to LAX 9:05pm no checked luggage will I make it?


    What airline is your first flight on?


    American Airlines coming from Ft Lauderdale


    Yes. It's possible as long as your first flight arrives on-time and you check in for your southwest flight online.


  • Getting from terminal B to terminal 4
    Oct 31, 2015
    I am flying in to PHX on 4/20/16 on flight 443 from Boston arriving at approx 9;05 am and need to get to terminal 4 for flight 692 to Honolulu which departs at 10:35. Will I have enough time


    Phoenix doesn't have a "Terminal B" what airlines are you flying?


  • Transfer from Southwest to United
    Oct 25, 2015
    Albq. to Phoenix on Southwest on Oct. 30th arrives at 10:15 a.m.....United Airlines flight leaves Phoenix 11:43 a.m....1 1/2 hours to get luggage at baggage claim, cause Southwest doesn't transfer bags, and get to United to check in bags, go through security, and get to gate...will probably already have boarding this enough time? Will we have to change terminals to get to United? If we have to change terminals, what's the best way to do it with luggage? Thanks


    Yes, you will have to change terminals. There is now a train in Phoenix that connects the terminals outside security. You have barely enough time.


  • Long enough Layover
    Oct 25, 2015
    Is arriving from DFW on flight #452 at 7:35am and departing for Long Beach, CA on flight #5649 at 8:45 am possible?


    Yes, that should be fairly easy. All you have to do in Phoenix is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Transfer from BA to US Airways
    Jan 8, 2015
    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
    Dec 6, 2014
    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.
