  • 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.

    I have a fligjt feb, 11 from ZRH into Montreal (Arrival 3.20 pm) and a second leg to Quebec 5.55 with AC. Unfortunatly not in the same Reservation. Will I have enough time for Immigration, Baggage Claim and re-checking?


    That should be enough time.

    I am flying AC from Montreal to Orlando coming from Ottawa. I have 1hr 22 minutes to catch the flight assuming no delays. Is that enough time as I am not sure how far the terminals are.....


    That should be enough time. Montreal only has one terminal.

    I am travelling from Saint John, NB to London, UK. I have 40 minutes from landing to get on my flight to London. Is this enough time for my luggage and myself to make it on my flight. It is with Air Canada.


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

    Hi I'm flying from Orlando(MCO) to Vancouver(YVR). I have a connection at Montreal(YUL). I'm flying Air Canada Rouge from MCO to YUL and then I'm flying Air Canada from YUL to YVR. My connection is 2hrs exactly. Is this enough time and what will I have to do at YUL?


    Yes, that is plenty of time. You just have to go through Canadian Immigration and Customs and security and go to your departure gate.

    Hi, I'm travelling from Vancouver to London through Montreal. I have 45 minutes in Montreal to catch my flight to London. Is this enough time? How long of a walk would it be? I do not have any checked luggage and both flights are Air Canada. Thanks!


    It is a pretty short walk. It is enough time if your flight from Vancouver is on-time.


    Hi ZAP You seem very experienced so could you please respond to my post I made about YUL Connections. I'm not trying to make this sound rude but I'm desperate for and answer

    Flying YVR to Montreal then to New York. Only 1 hour for the connection. Will be checking bags in Vancouver. 1. Do we go through customs clearance in Montreal? Last stop before entering USA correct unless they don't have customs pre-clearance? Which Cdn airports have pre-clearance? 2. Do we need to pickup our bags anywhere before we arrive in USA? I remember a long time ago I had to pickup bags and then drop them again but can't remember where/when. Thank You


    Yes, you will go through preclearance in Montreal. Yes, I believe you will have to pick up your bags at preclearance but check with them. The Canadian airports with preclearance are Toronto, Ottawa, Halifax, Montreal, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver.

    Hi there I'm traveling to Las Vegas from St. John's and have a layover in Montreal. I only have 59 minutes in Montreal...is this feasible considering I have to go through customs?


    It's possible but it leaves no time to spare.


  • Customs where?
    Oct 3, 2016
    I am traveling from Montreal to Boston with a layover in Toronto. Do I just go through customs in Montreal? Or do I need to go through customs again in Toronto?


    you will go through Security in Montreal and go through US Immigration and Customs preclearance in Toronto. There is no Canadian customs when leaving Canada.

    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
    Sep 20, 2016
    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.


  • Layover

    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.


  • enough time to connect?

    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.


  • Connecting flight worries re time

    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.


  • Time needed to clear customs and checked baggage and all.
    Aug 5, 2016
    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.
