    I am flying United Airlines from Fredericton N.B. to Palm Springs with stops in Montreal Trudeau then, San Franscisco and on to Palm Springs.Do I have to go through customs in Trudeau airport? I arrive at Trudeau at 6:35 AM and leave at 8:10 am. Can you tell me where to go and what to do? Will the time be tight?


    Yes, in Montreal you will proceed directly to US Immigration and Customs Preclearance. You have enough time. Just follow the signs for "US Departures".

    When I fly from Ottawa and land in in Montreal, do I have to go through security again before I go to my connecting flight to the US


    You proceed directly to US Immigration and Customs Preclearance.


    When my Ottawa- Montreal flight lands, do I pick up my checked luggage at US Preclearance or will my luggage go directly to my San Fransisco connection


    I believe it will be waiting for you in preclearance.


  • Montreal to Cuba

    Hi, I'm flying in from the US and have a final destination in CUBA. I will arrive at YUL on Porter airline at 14:55. My flight to CUBA will be on Air China at 16:20 and I will have to check in to Air China because I had to buy these tickets separately. This will not be a connection flight for me. Will I have to go thru security check again and how far is the walk between these terminals? Thank you so much.


    Montreal only has one terminal. You will have to go through Canadian Immigration, claim your bags, go through customs, re-check your bags with Air China and go through security. It will be very difficult to do that in the time you have.


    Thank you very much for your reponse. I decided to get another flight that will give me more time. Would you be able to help me with one last question I have? On my flight back from Cuba that arrives at YUL at 13:30, I have 1 hour to get to my next flight at 14:30 to the US on American airlines with a carry on only would that be very difficult to make that flight as well? I would have to go thru Canadian immigration and customs but I'm not sure how busy the airport generally is. thanks so much in advance for your helpful answers! They are really appreciated!


    Not only that, but you will have to go through US customs also. Not to mention that you will need to pass security again. There is no way you can do that in one hour. Don't forget that you have to be at the gate at least fifteen minutes before the plane leave.

    do you have to go through security between these 2 gates


    No, you do not.

    I am flying to toronto from Saint john; with a 50 minute layover in motreal. Is this enough time to catch my flight and have my checked bag make the flight

  • 1 hour lay over

    hi, we have lay over at montreal airport for 1 hour going back to toronto were we reside, my question is , is that enough time ? we travel from beijing -manila and we have a baby with us.. im afraid we gonna miss our flight because of the short time.. thanks in advance ZAP


    Are both flights on the same reservation or is it two separate reservations? Even if it's one reservation 1 hour is pretty risky.


    yes we booked it 1 time its all air china.. i know its still risky.. do we have to go to cuatoms and get our luggage bag to chek in again? ..


    You will have to go through Canadian Immigration and Customs. you'll have to ask Border Canada about the bags.


    ok thank u so much..

    I fly Boston - Montreal landing at 8am with no checked bags and have a one hour layover before flying Montreal - Charlottetown, PEI at 9am. Is the one hour layover enough to change planes and cross customs?


    Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    We are flying DL 5158 ATL-YUL, connecting to AC 892 YUL-FCO, leaving 18:55. Separate tickets. Is this enough time? Do we change terminals after clearing CA customs?


    Montreal only has one terminal. You didn't post your arrival time so I don't know if you have enough time.


    Sorry ZAP, our arrival in Montreal is 14:45. Thanks for your reply!


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.


  • Connecting from USA to Canada at YUL
    Jan 8, 2017
    Hi, I am arriving from the USA (gate 50) and then have a connection, leaving to a Canadian destination (gate 50). Do i stay on the plane since it is the same plane that will be continuing to the canadian destination or do i get off the plane and go through Canadian customs, pick up my baggage, handover my declaration card and then drop off my baggage at the "connection flights drop off"? After that, to get to gate A50 (canadian departures) do I exit to the public area of the airport to get to the security check in for canadian departures? thank you!


    You will have to get off the plane to go through Canadian Immigration and all those procedures.
