  • YVR to BRU connecting through YUL
    Mar 24, 2017
    Hello, I'm taking a SN flight (operating by AC) from YVR arriving at YUL 19:05 and then connecting to BRU on another SN flight departing at 19:45. Do I have to go through security check and clear custom again or just walk from one gate to another? Will I have enough time for the connection?


    You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Montreal. There is no Canadian customs when leaving Canada.


    Thank you so much for your prompt reply.


  • Stop Over through Montreal to US

    Hi, We are 2 Irish Citizens flying from Edmonton to Boston, USA. Air Canada have changed our connecting flights from Edmonton to Boston to go through Montreal instead of Ottawa. Our flight now lands at 16.51 on a Wednesday and we fly to Boston at 18.00. i understand we have to go through US customs in Montreal, will a time of an hour and nine minutes be enough to get through customs and to our flight?


    That should be enough time.

    I have a connecting flight from Montreal Trudeau to Las Vegas on March 11th (1st day of March Break). I have a total of 1 hr 8 min and my flight leaves at 8:00. Do I have enough time?


    So you're flying from somewhere else in Canada to Montreal to Vegas? That's just enough time if everything is on the same reservation.

    Hello , I have 2hrs between flights on AC from LAX to BCN ... will bags be checked through to my final destination or must I have to clear customs and recheck ?


    You shouldn't have to claim your bags in Montreal. Just go through Canadian passport control and to your departure gate.


  • YVR to CDG connecting through YUL
    Feb 27, 2017
    We will by flying from YVR on AC and have a 1 hr 30 connection at YUL before departing for CDG (also on AC). Will our bags be checked through to Paris or do we have to retrieve to clear customs in Montreal?


    There is no Canadian Customs when leaving Canada. All you have to do in Montreal is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thank you for your quick response. So does that mean that our bags will be checked through to CDG?


    Yes, they will

    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
    Feb 16, 2017
    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.


  • gate 27 (domestic) to gate 53 (international)

    do you have to go through security between these 2 gates


    No, you do not.


  • is this enough time

    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


    Yes, that is enough time if the flight from St. John is on-time.


  • 1 hour lay over
    Feb 11, 2017
    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.
