  • connecting flight to USA, short layover, baggage?
    Aug 30, 2016

    Hello, From what I have been reading I'll have to collect my bags in Toronto during my connection. I'm flying in from Calgary with my connection in Toronto to Atlanta. I land in Toronto at 6:38am and my flight from Toronto to Atlanta leaves at 8:15am. Am I going to have enough time to get my bags and get through security and still make my Atlanta flight? Thanks, Scott

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. You will proceed directly to US Immigration and Customs preclearance when you get to Toronto.

    Hello. I am leaving from Dublin (Air Canada Rouge) - with a 3.5 hour layover in Toronto YYZ Terminal 1 - then landing in Sault Ste. Marie, Canada YAM (Air Canada Express). Will I have to claim and recheck my baggage in Toronto? As well as go though Customs and Immigration? Thanks! I'm not sure if this matters, but I'm a US citizen.

     

    You will go through Canada Customs and then proceed to pick up your baggage. Follow connection sings and drop your baggage off on the connection belt. From there you will go to D Gates and make your final flight.

    I have two separate tickets Flying from YDF via West Jet arriving YYZ at 1537 Leaving YYZ via Air Canada at 1800 to YVR arriving at 2000 and on to SYD at 2345 Do I claim my bags in YYZ and recheck them in or can I have them directed all the way to SYD, do I have to clear customs and if so where? Also will there be enough time in Toronto to do this? Thanks.

     

    You will have to claim your bags in Toronto, take them on the train to Air Canada and re-chekc them then go through security. There is no Customs when leaving Canada. You will go through Australian immigration and customs when you get to Sydney.

     

    Thanks, so will 2 and half hours be sufficient to do this?

     

  • HELP!! Airline ships bag from a domestic trip to Toronto CA!!

    Long story short my luggage was sent to the Toronto airport by United Airlines. I was headed from San Francisco to Portland ME and due to engine issues was taken off the plane - my luggage was not. Supposedly my bag is in Toronto CA airport but United Airlines has not been able to either find it and/or put it on a plane to Portland ME. Any thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Nancy

     

    It's likely in the immigration facility in Toronto and may take awhile to get to United's bag office. There's also no direct flights from Toronto to Portland, so to get it to Portland they will have to send it to one of their US hubs first and will have to send it as cargo, not checked baggage, which will also make it take longer. I suggest that unless you are going to be in Portland a long time, that they just send it back to San Francisco - they can ship it freight on a nonstop Air Canada flight. Of course they'll have to find it first.

     

  • Do I need to collect luggage and clear customs?

    Hi I'm flying in from Manchester UK to Toronto Pearson and then on to Windsor, Ontario with like a 6 hour layover. Do I have to collect my luggage, clear customs and then recheck in in departures? Or is there an interconnecting flight desk for this?

     

    What airlines are you flying?

     

    Air transat and air Canada

     

    Since you purchased two separate reservations you will arrive in Terminal 3, go through Canadian Immigration, claim your bags, and go through customs, then you will have to take the terminal link train to Terminal 1, re-check your bags with Air Canada, get your boarding passes, and go through security.

     

  • Baggage and connection in Pearson

    I will be flying from Montreal (YUL) to Abu Dhabi with a connection in Toronto Pearson. I made the flight reservation with Etihad Airways, but the ticket indicates that the first segment (Montreal to Pearson) will be operated by Air Canada. My question is the following: do I need to get my baggage in Pearson and re-check it with Etihad? Thx!

     

    Since everything is on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bags in Toronto.

     

  • Do I have to get my own bag?

    So I'm flying home from Rome flying AC and then I am headed to the US flying AA. So I know I have to change terminals but my question is can I have a friend who is coming back from Rome with me get my bag from the carousel or do I HAVE to pick it up myself? I do not plan on taking it onto my US destination. The tickets were purchased separately.

     

    The bag bay be sent to the US and not available for pickup.

     

    My tickets are completely separate so my bag will not be continuing. But is someone else from my flight home from Rome be able to get my bag to take home and me continue onto the other terminal without collecting my bag.

     

    Yes, it's possible, but if they are pulled aside by Canadian customs they'll have a lot of explaining to do as to why they have somebody else's bag.

     

    Speed things up. Allow 2 checked bags up to a certain weight limit at no charge. Allow ONE carry on bag that will fit under seat at no charge. Charge HIGH FEES for any additional carry on items.

     

  • Connection at Pearson before San Jose

    I'm flying from Vancouver to Pearson and have a 2 hour layover before my flight to San Jose. Will I have to recheck my baggage or just go through customs at Pearson? Both flights are Air Canada.

     

    I assume you are flying to San Jose, Costa Rica. In that case all you have to do in Toronto is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. There is no Canadian customs when leaving Canada.

    We are travelling from YUL to YYZ then onto Turks and Caicos. The westjet site is not clear if we need to retrieve our baggage or not. Our connection time is an hour. Do I need to pick up the baggage and recheck it ?

     

    If both flights are on Westjet you don't have to claim your baggage, you just have to go to your international gate.

     

    thank you for your fast reply. Greatly appreciated

    As we all know we cant travel with any thing in liquid form over 50ml. So I'm obliged to send my Bag in luggage. Can some one tell me how long it takes to get luggages after the plane lands?

     

    It depends. Somewhere from 10-30 minutes usually.

    Hi, I am traveling from Winnipeg to TO via Air Canada, Terminal 1 then going to Dublin, Aer Lingus, Terminal 3 (2 hour layover). Will my luggage be transferred or will I have to pick it up? Thanks for your help!

     

    Did you purchase your tickets on one reservation or two separate reservations? If two separate ones then you will likely have to claim your bags in Toronto and re-check them with Aer Lingus.

     

    I purchased it as one flight with a change in TO.

    I will fly from europe to toronto and then after 5 hre layover to windsor but my question is can I get my bags in toronto airport if I want to stay there eventhough my ticket is to windsor?

     

    Yes, you will claim your bags in Toronto to go through Canadian Customs, but you can only skip a leg if it's the last one of your trip.
