Philadelphia Airport Reviews

Philadelphia International Airport (IATA: PHL, ICAO: KPHL, FAA LID: PHL), often referred to just by its airport code PHL, is a major airport in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States, and is the largest airport in the Delaware Valley region and in the state.

Philadelphia Municipal became Philadelphia International in 1945, when American Overseas Airlines began direct flights to Europe. (For a short time AOA’s flights skipped the New York stop; that was probably Philadelphia’s only international nonstop until a transatlantic nonstop started in 1964.) A new terminal opened in December 1953; the oldest parts of the present terminal complex (B and C) were built in the late ’50s.

The Philadelphia Airport is the second largest hub and the primary international hub of US Airways and has service to destinations in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East. Most of the airport property is located in Philadelphia. The international terminal and the western end of the airfield are located in Tinicum Township, Delaware County.
