  • Connecting on Air Canada
    Nov 25, 2015
    I am flying from YQY on Air Canada Jazz and connecting to Air Canada Rouge to San Diego through YYZ. Will I have to collect and recheck baggage? Is two hours enough time to make this connection?

    I am flying Swiss air from Los Angeles with connecting flight in Toronto. When I arrive in Toronto how long does it take to the international departure area Swiss Air to Copenhagen? Appreciate some info.


    Swiss does not fly nonstop from Toronto to Copenhagen. If you are flying from Toronto to Copenhagen you are on SAS, not Swiss, and your flight to Toronto will be operated by Air Canada. You just have to follow signs to your departure gate after you arrive. you will go through Canadian border control to access the gate area. As long as you have at least 1 hour for your connection you should be OK.

    No, you do not.


  • Baggage transfer - YOW/YYZ/LHR/BCN
    Jun 25, 2014
    Flying out of Pearson on British airways to london then onto barcelona. I will taking flight from Ottawa to get to Toronto. I understand BA flies out of Terminal 3 I can take either AC or WJ to get to toronto but wondering if I would have to pick up luggage and recheck it as this would affect my choice. I believe AC flies into terminal 1 - so would have to switch terminals BUT BA and AC have a luggage agreement - so would my luggage be checked all the way thru from ottawa to barcelona? Otherwise if I have to pick up luggage I would pick WJ to flight into YYZ as I believe they are in terminal 3 - same as BA - so less hassle if I have to claim and recheck luggage? Any help or guidance greatly appreciated - hoping to avoid claiming/rechecking bag and would big whatever airline/terminal connection would make this easiest. thanks,


    AC and BA do have a baggage agreement but AC may not check your bags through to BA if you purchase separate tickets because they are not in the same alliance.


    Last year I flew on 2 separate tickets (AC ottawa/LHR) then BA (LHR to BCN) and they did check my bags thru....so is it safe to assume that this would happen again - even with a '3rd' leg as well (YOW to YYZ)? If so and bags are checked thru then I would of course choose AC to fly into toronto despite change of terminal. If not the case then I would choose WJ to fly into terminal 3 to pick up my BA flights...... In either case does anyone know if I have to actually PICK up my luggage in toronto? This would help me choose of course - THANKS A BUNCH:)


  • Questions re Customs and checked luggage
    Dec 12, 2013
    Arriving from USA in Terminal 1 of YYZ and catching connecting flight to YOW (which I think departs from T1 as well). I'm assuming I will have to clear Customs in YYZ but will my checked luggage be forwarded all the way to YOW or will I have to collect my bag and then re-check it before heading to YOW?


    Your bags will be tagged through to Ottawa but you will have to claim them in immigration, clear customs, and drop them at the re-check desk. Air Canada outlines the procedure pretty clearly here (page 2) - http://www.aircanada.com/en/travelinfo/airport/images/yyz.pdf
