Philadelphia International Airport is located in between New York and Washington DC. Seeing how both of those cities have three major airports, you would think that PHL would not be very busy. But on the contrary, about 31 million passengers a year make their way through the airport.
Philly’s Airport is conveniently located just seven miles from the heart of downtown. Public transportation, or SEPTA, is how most of the locals travel on a daily basis. Take the rail or check out one of the bus lines that serve the airport.
