  • Flying from YVR to Fort Lauderdale with 1 hour stop in YYZ
    Mar 25, 2017
    Departing Vancouver with Delta and want to confirm whether I clear US customs in Vancouver or in Toronto. If in Toronto I have less than an hour to get my connecting flight.


    Both flights will be operated by Westjet as Delta doesn't fly from Vancouver to Toronto or Toronto to Ft. Lauderdale. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.

    Yes, if both flights are on the same reservation all you have to do in Toronto on your way to Jamaica is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • customs and luggage

    I am arriving from Fredericton NB connecting to Antigua..do I have to pick up my bags and clear customs, or just follow connecting flights. I have 2 hours and arrival and departure are within T1 terminal and I am not sure how far apart the gates are to each other. Thank you


    There is no Canadian Customs when leaving Canada. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.

  • Checked Baggage will go direct to US or I have to pick at Pearson ?
    Oct 5, 2016
    I have a flight from Regina( Saskatchewan) to Miami with 6 hours stay at Pearson airport. Will My Checked bags go direct to Miami or I have to Pick them at Pearson ?


    I'm fairly sure your bags will be waiting for you at US Immigration and Customs preclearance in Toronto.


    Out of last two times of my flight o Miami, second time my bag were direct to Miami from Regina. I am asking this question because there is 6 hours lay over and I want to go out of the Toronto Airport. Do you think I would be able to go outside? As I mentioned, in March went travelled to Miami my bags were direct to Miami.


    Then ask the agent in Regina and Toronto when you arrive.


  • Dublin to Toronto to USA-Security and Baggage
    Aug 20, 2016
    I'm trying to figure out the customs situation. I am a US citizen. I will be flying from Dublin to Toronto then onto the USA. I've read conflicting reports that either I have to pick up my bag after clearing Customs go through security and and then re-check it. I've also read that I go to Customs and if my name appears on some screen then they have to do an additional security check. Or I just breeze right through. Does anyone know what I will be dealing with when I get to Toronto? Our layover is barely 2 hours.


    If both tickets are on the same reservation you should have enough time. The exact process depends on the terminal you are flying through.


    What about the luggage situation? Is that something I pick up or is that something that is possibly flagged for later?

    I'll be on Air Canada from YWG to IAH connecting through YYZ. Will I clear US Customs and immigration at YYZ? If so do I have to retrieve my checked bags and then re-check or will they be checked in at YWG through to IAH?


    Yes, you will go through US Immigration and customs in Toronto. Your bags will be waiting for you at pre-clearance in Toronto for you to take them through and then re-check them.
