  • Customs in Toronto or Montreal?
    Feb 3, 2016
    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.


  • Short connection?
    Feb 1, 2016
    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.


  • Enough Time?
    Feb 10, 2016
    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 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.

    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Procedure to connecting flights
    Jan 17, 2016
    Arriving from Calgary on Air Canada - need to connect to another Air Canada flight to US. Have checked bags. What procedure do I follow?


    You will go to US immigration and customs preclearance where you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs and recheck your bags then go to your departure gate.

    I fly in west jet on dec 3 and connect to Air Canada 45 mins later, will I have enough time to make the second flight? Thanks.


    Is your westjet flight domestic? Is your Air Canada flight domestic? Will you have checked bags? That connection is only possible if both flights are domestic and you have no checked bags and you check in for your AC flight online.


  • Is there time between flights
    Nov 13, 2015
    I will arrive at YUL and have to catch a flight within 1 hour to Quebec YQB will I have time.


    Where are you flying into YUL from? What airlines are you flying?


    From Heathrow


    Air Canada


    That will be very difficult.

    I will have a flight arriving from Italy, and am connecting on a different airline departing to the U.S. There will be no checked bags - will I have to clear security and customs, or can I just go directly to my connecting flight? Our layover time will be 1 hour, so I want to make sure that time is sufficient. Thanks!


    If you already have your boarding pass for your flight to the US you can proceed directly to US Customs preclearance through the connections corridor. If you are unable to get your onward boarding pass, you will have to go through Canadian Immigration then get your boarding pass, then go through US Customs pre-clearance. 1 hour isn't really enough time to do that.


  • Delta income incoming - meet friend at AC
    Aug 13, 2014
    I arrive Delta 5196 at 1108 on 22 Aug and need to meet a friend who arrives at AC 1215. How can I find out gate # to meet her,


    You will not be able to go to her gate. If both are transborder flights you should meet at the exit of Canadian customs. If her Air Canada flight is a domestic flight, you need to meet her in the Domestic baggage claim.


  • gate connection
    Jul 26, 2014
    What is the fastest way from gate 73 to gate 51a ? I have 30 mins to make connection. Thanks!


    Of the three restricted areas in the terminal, you arrive in the Transborder area (for E.U. & U.S. flights) with gates 72-89; and need to get to the International area (gates 47-62) - follow signs.
