  • connection times for domestic to international
    Jun 13, 2016

    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!

     

  • Procedure to connecting flights

    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.

    My husband and I are flying from Halifax AC7671 arriving Montreal, YUL, at 06:42. We are connecting to AC1855 to Las Vegas leaving at 07:40. We have checked bags. Is this enough time, and what is the procedure? The last time we did this we didn't collect our bags and re-check them, but every time seems to be different, and we find this process confusing.

     

    As far as I know the process is that you will go to US Immigration and Customs preclearance where your bags will be waiting, you will go through preclearance and security and then board your flight.

     

    Why, then, did we not collect our bags and take them through customs the last time - Nov/15? We did go through customs, but it seems lately that our bags go straight throug to Vegas. How up yo date are you with your info?

     

    It appears to depend on the facility. I cannot find any definitive information either way newer than 2014.

    Flight AC7671 from Halifax to Montreal lands at just before seven am...connection to LA AC0797 leaves at 7:50. With no checked bags, is that enough time for my daughter to clear customs?

     

    It's difficult, but at that early time in the morning it should be enough time if the flight from Halifax is on-time.

    landing at 4:55 PM, departing at 6:35 PM - is that enough time?

     

    What airlines are you flying? Will you have checked bags?

     

  • Connecting flight AC1821 to AC8985

    Flight AC1821 has been delayed and will only arrive in Montreal at 8:30 Connection AC8985 is still on time at 8:50. I assume there will not be enough time to catch the connecting flight? Unable to speak with anyone at AC.

     

    Considering 1821 is an international flight, no you'd have no chance of making 8985. However, there is a 10:35 PM flight to YOW. You will be rebooked on that if there is available space.

     

    Thank you for the info. Would it be possible to make those arrangements in advance or would it be done automatically depending on availability?

     

    Yes, if you can get in touch with someone from Air Canada they could try to get you confirmed in advance on that flight. I'm not sure it's something that the AC agent in Cancun would be able to do though.

     

    Thank you! You have been a great help.

     

  • Customs in Toronto or Montreal?

    Flying into Ottawa Trudeau from Toronto and Departing to LA with 1.25 hrs between flights. Is this enough? Do I have to go through customs in Canada or the States? How big is the airport.

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs at the last Canadian airport you visit before you fly to LA (where your flight to LA departs from). Your post is confusing so I can't figure out where that is. Yes, 1 hr 25 minutes should be enough time.

    I am arriving at YUL from Ottawa to catch a connecting flight to Brussels and I will have 45 minutes. Is that enough time?

     

    Yes, all you have to do in Montreal is walk your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    We are arriving at YUL from Fredericton to catch a connecting flight to LAS and we have 57 minutes. Is that enough time and what procedure do we follow?

     

    You will proceed to "US Departures" where once your flight is on the monitor, you will proceed to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and then re-check your bags and then go to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

     

    Thanks for the information. The Montreal airport website states that we don't have to pick up our checked bags, that they will be transferred for us. What are your thoughts?

     

    hi heidi,did you make the 57min connection,I'm on the same flight mar28.

     

    We don't leave until later in the month. But I'll make sure to let you know. Fingers crossed.

     

    thks hiedi,good luck,I have spoke to a few people as well as phoning air canada,they seem to think everything should be ok.all atlantic canada cities fly in to montreal for the same flight to vegas,so it must be somewhat relilable when it comes to connection concerns,let me know how you make out,,ltr...don.

    Hi dear, Flight Ord to Cmn via YuL, is 1 hour enough to time hence 2 kids and an infant. And what is the procedure and terminals . Thank you

     

    You will go through Canadian passport control and to your gate assuming everything is on the same reservation that should be enough time. On Two separate reservations I don't think that is enough time.
