Security Tips and Checkpoint Wait Times

  • TSA screening times vary, depending on departure times. Mid-day, they run about 20 minutes, but you can do a same-day check of screening line times at: http://www.whatsbusy.com/airport.
  • Philadelphia International is open 24 hours; security checkpoints typically open 90 minutes before the first flight.
  • Make TSA screening easier on everyone:
    • Have your boarding pass and ID in hand when you get to the front of the line.
    • Wear slip off shoes and a light coat, weather permitting.
    • Liquids must be less than 3.4 ounces, bottles must fit in 1 quart bags, and be placed in a bin for screening. Carry an empty water bottle and fill it at a drinking fountain once you’re past security.
    • Have laptops and large tech items easily accessible
    • Use TSA Pre-Check (https://www.tsa.gov/tsa-precheck) for a fast and easy screening process (short lines, no shoe removal, no liquid checks, no computer removals)
