Five airlines offer flights from Boston to Philadelphia: Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, US Airways, American Airlines and AirTran Airways. Flights to Philadelphia depart from Terminals A, B and C.
If you want to park your car at the airport while you travel, you have three parking options.

The Economy Parking Lot costs $18 per day or $108 per week. Because this lot isn't within walking distance of the terminals, the airport has a complimentary shuttle that transports passengers to the terminal entrances every 15 to 20 minutes. You can also take the train, known as the "T," from the city to the airport. The silver line connects the South Station to the airport, and the blue line connects the North Station to the airport. You can also take a taxi to the airport. Cab fare costs between $25 and $45, depending on your origin.
If you want to get something to eat before you board your plane, the airport has numerous dining options. If you want to grab something quickly, you can choose from Burger King, Dunkin' Donuts, Gourmet on the Fly or McDonald's. If you want to relax and enjoy a meal, you can choose from Bonfire, Fox Sports Sky Bar & Grill, Johnny Rockets or the Vineyard Grille.
