General Airport Tips

When it came to general tips for getting to and through PHL airport, here’s what our customers had to say:

“Try to avoid traveling late afternoon to evening. Traffic is heavy at the airport and likely for a delay.”

“Use the curbside check-in. It’s faster and you don’t have to wait in line inside. Tip the guy a few bucks and you check in and go right to security.”

“When you go thru TSA be prepared. Put all your small items in your carryon or a ziplock bag.”

“TSA pre-check is worth the price at PHL”

“If you have an American Express card and it allows you to use the Centurion Lounge in Concourse A, I highly recommend it!

“Get there early – TSA lines are unpredictable! Usually OK but Murphy’s Law always comes into play.”

“Smile and relax most are glad to help just ask.”
