All About PHL Airport

PHL Airport Guide

Located only seven minutes from downtown Philadelphia, Philadelphia International Airport is the only major airport serving the metropolitan Philadelphia area. With seven terminals, PHL saw over 30 million passengers in 2013, including 4.4 million international passengers. Over 500 daily departures means this airport knows exactly what its passengers need to have a successful journey from start to finish.

The Sunny Side of PHL

Family vacations are great for bonding with everyone you love, but traveling with kids is anything but stress free. Philadelphia International Airport gets this, and they've created a safe haven for hapless dads and harried mothers.

Two designated play areas make for a contained place for kids to be entertained and burn off some energy before they're bundled onto a plane. The Aviation Play Station is located in Terminal D and has interactive displays that are designed to introduce kids to the entire world of aviation.

Ready for Takeoff is in Terminal A-East and has a jumbo jet, a control tower, and a tug. Children can be pilots, passengers, air traffic controllers, or drivers. Working radios in the tower and airplane allow them to feel like they're really working in aviation.
