Terminals 3 and 4 are connected by the free PHX Sky Train that operates every few minutes and also runs to the east economy parking lot and PHX Airport Station for metro connections. As the train operates outside the secure area, passengers are required to reclear security, so you must consider this when transferring terminals to access a lounge.

Hot Tip: For more information on getting around PHX, take a look at our ultimate terminal guide to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

Final Thoughts

The airport’s Terminal 3 has recently undergone a modernization project that will enable quicker processing at its new consolidated security checkpoint, additional ticketing counters, and better baggage handling. Overall, these new features will allow passengers to spend less time queueing and more time relaxing before their flight in one of the airport lounges.
