PHL & the Papal Visit

PHL Papal Visit tag

Thousands of people heading to Philadelphia for this weekend’s Papal Visit will be passing through Philadelphia International Airport.

The airport is ready with a special web page of helpful travel information, extra services and, on Monday, September 28, a free Papal Visit luggage tag for anyone who spends $25 or more in participating retail shops.

While Pope Francis’s arrival and departure at the airport are not public events, keep in mind he’s due to arrive at Atlantic Aviation at about 9:30 p.m. today (Saturday, September 26)¬† and depart¬† at 8 p.m. on Sunday, September 27.

The Pope will surely have a car service to meet him when he arrives, but everyone else should consider taking the SEPTA train into town. Especially because on Saturday and Sunday your special One Day Papal Pass for travel on the Airport Rail Line will also be a souvenir.

    I was traveling through Philadelphia International Airport a few ago and they already had Pope paraphernalia on sale then. I shudder to think what it looks like now.
