    My teenage daughter will be traveling from Germany to Los Angeles, with lay over in Montreal. She arrives at 12:10 and departs at 2:30, both on Air Canada. Will her bag be checked through and will she need to change terminals?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. When she arrives in Montreal she will proceed directly to US Immigration and Customs Preclearance where her bags will be waiting for her. Montreal only has one terminal.

     

  • Arriving from the US connecting to Halifax

    I arrive on Delta airlines from Atlanta at 3 PM Saturday and need to connect to a AC domestic flight to Halifax. Tickets are not on the same itinerary. I will have checked baggage. I am assuming Delta will not check them through to Halifax. If I check in to my AC flight and indicate the number of checked bags I will have, will they retag and accept them at the connection desk ? Or will I need to leave the area and go to regular check in outside of security ? I have 2.25 hours to do so. Should I be okay ? Thx

     

    You will have to go through Canadian immigration, claim your bags, go through customs, then re-check your bags with Air Canada at the AC check-in desk and then go through security. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    I am considering an itinerary with a Lufthansa flight departing Munich at 2:45 pm on a Saturday to Montreal arriving at 6:30 pm with a connecting AC flight to Edmonton at 7:45 pm, which gives me 1 he and 15 min to retrieve bag, get thru Customs and off load bag and get to my gate. Is this feasible?

     

    No, I don't think that's enough time. Maybe if everything is on the same reservation is might just be possible if everything goes perfectly.

    I will be arriving at YUL at 1700 via WOW AIR from Reykjavik and need to connect to another airline heading to the US...the latest flights that I can see currently leaving for the US are around 2020 and some depart at 1900ish....Is it reasonable to be able to land, deplane, clear Canadian Customs, collect bags (go through security again??? to make it on a 1900 or 2000 timed flight to the US?...thanks a million

     

    2020 would be doable. 1900 would be difficult.

    Hi all, I'm leaving Logan Airport Boston to fly to Frankfurt Germany and have a short layover in Montreal. I only have 42 minutes to catch my connecting flight. Will I have to go through Canadian customs, then collect my bags, then reboard my plane to Frankfurt? I fear I wont have enough time. Please advise how this usually works> Thanks.

     

    You just have to go through passport control. You should have enough time if your flight from Boston is on-time and everything is on the same reservation.

    I will be travelling from India to halifax while Montreal will be the first point of entry and will be going through customs. It is 90 mins layover. Is it enough and can you please tell the customs procedure. Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will go through Canadian immigration, claim your bags, go through Canadian customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate.

     

  • LAX to YUL to FCO (Rome) w/ Luggage

    Hi Everyone. I'm slightly panicking as my fiancée and I are flying from Los Angeles to Italy via Montreal on Air Canada. We arrive in Montreal at 20:07 and our connecting flight leaves at 20:50; they only built in a 43-minute layover. Will we have to collect bags in Montreal and recheck to Rome or do they tag straight through? We also have Global Entry if that helps us along the process any quicker. Thank you all for your insight!

     

    You won't have to collect your bags in Montreal. You will just have to go through Canadian passport control and to your departure gate. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly. It's certainly a difficult connection but not impossible. Global Entry doesn't do anything for you outside the US.

     

    Much obliged. Thank you ZAP!

    Hello, I was looking for information on domestic connection to international flights, (YVRYULMUC). is there a map showing this process as they to in YYZ? Thank you

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation then all you have to do in Montreal is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Montreal is a much smaller and simpler airport than YYZ.

     

    There is no need to map this. YUL is a friendly airport to connect through. When you'll get out of your plane from YVR, you just have to spot the monitor screen and look for your gate (mostly between 50 and 68) and then just walk straight ahead to it. It is important that you do not go down by the elevator; this is the arrival hall and you don't want to pass through security again... Have a safe trip!

    I am arriving from YVR, Vancouver on Air Canada- will 1 hr be enough lay over time to connect with Air Canada to CDG, Paris and what is the procedure? How far is the walk from Arrivals to Departures? I got lost in YUL last time and missed my flight. So a little worried. Thanks!

     

    1 hour is more then enough for connection between a domestic and an international flight in YUL. The only thing is that your window is short if you are late on your first leg. But anyway AC is responsible for that so go ahead! But how can you get lost in YUL? From a domestic flight, you don't have to get out by the arrival level so you just walk, walk and walk all the way 'till you hit your gate. This can't be more easy...

    Is 1hr sufficient for a domestic AC>AC connection?

     

    1 hour is more then enough for connection between two domestic flights in YUL. The only thing is that your window is short if you are late on your first leg. But anyway AC is responsible for that so go ahead!

     

  • Overly Short Connection Time?

    Apologies for the double post but I just realised that I originally posted this to the wrong sub-forum. I will be flying from Scotland to New York La Guardia (LGA) via London Heathrow (LHR) and Montreal (YUL) in June. I have a fairly tight turnaround time in YUL: arriving from LHR at 1615 and leaving for LGA at 1800. I'm pretty sure my bags can only be checked as far as YUL (because I have to pay for checked bagge between YUL and LGA), so I have to collect them there, then re-check them for the flight to LGA. I have never been to YUL before and I'm very nervous that 1h 45m won't be enough time to allow me to clear Canadian customs, collect my bags, recheck them and then go through security and US pre-Customs clearance. Can anybody let me know if this seems feasible in that amount of time? Many thanks in advance.

     

    Hello! I don't know if it's too late but I will answer anyway. YUL is an easy-friendly connecting airport so don't worry, you'll do it. You don't need to pass through canadian customs and get you bags. You will simply follow the "US connections" pannel above your head once you'll arrive near the customs hall. Once there, an agent will be guiding you directly one level above to the US customs and border protection. After, you will be in USA, altough you'll still be in Montreal! Then you just get to your gate, board your plane and that's it. Your bags will be check-in all the way through LGA. Have a safe flight!

    Hi. Travelling from LAX on AC798 to YUL arriving 8:08, then AC1920 to Rome, leaving 8:50. Do I have enough time to change Thank you

     

    Can anyone answer my question from Sat 16th?

     

    Yes, as long as your flight from LAX is on-time. All you have to do in Montreal is a brief Canadian passport check.

     

    Thank you for your help. Hopefully LAX will be on time.

    Hi there - I am flying out of YUL to London at 10pm, and will be coming from Toronto beforehand. I won't be able to get ticketed all the way through from Toronto. How much time will I need at YUL after landing from Toronto, to get my bags and then check in for my international flight?

    I recommend at least 2 hours.
