    I'm flying in via West Jet T3, connecting with Etihad T3, but on separate reservations, with checked luggage. What will I need to do with my bags on arrival in T3? Will I have to clear security again? Will 1.5 hours be enough?

     

    If your Westjet flight is domestic you will claim your bags from Westjet, re-check them with Etihad, and go through security. You have barely enough time.

    We will be flying from the US to Iceland on Air Canada (Express - Air Georgian then Rouge) we have 1hr 20min stop in YYZ to make our connecting flight. Will we have to collect our checked bag and recheck it? Will we need to go through customs in YYZ?

     

    No, you will not have to collect your bags. You will just go through Canadian passport control and to your departure gate.

    We arrive on Westjet to Terminal 3 from Wpg at 8:30am, and our fligt to Tampa is at 10am. Will we have enough time to make the connection, and do we need to pick up our luggage from somewhere. Says we arrive at gate A5 and depart at gate A18. Both flights are Westjet. Thanks in advance. I've never done a connection flight and I'm a little worried, especially if I have no idea where or what I'm supposed to be doing.

     

    In Toronto you will go to US Immigration and Customs Preclearance inside Terminal 3. You have enough time. You will follow a sign saying "US Departures"

    Going from Detroit to Vancouver through Toronto on WestJet. Layover is on a Saturday in June from 1:10p to 3p. Two senior citizens with limited mobility (walking only) and checked bags are part of the trip. Is this enough time for the layover?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. Note that the flight from Detroit to Toronto will be operated by Delta.

     

    Does Delta mean that I may have to change terminals, or any other "change airline" hassle?

     

    No, all you have to do in Toronto is go through Canadian Immigration and customs and to your departure gate. Everything is in the same terminal.

    I'm flying from amsterdam to toronto and then to vancouver we have 2 hours to connect to the flight to Vancouver is this enough time ? We go by Canadian air both flights, is there a quick way to reach the other gate because we have to go from an international arrival to a domestic flight.

     

    Yes, that is enough time. There is no "Canadian Air", do you mean "Air Canada"? There's no "quick way" - you have to go through Canadian Immigration and customs in Toronto.

     

    Does going through custom mean you have to retrieve your luggage first? Planning on a trip barcelona to vancouver via toronto with 90 mins layover time?

     

    Both flights are Air canada. Thanks!

    What do I have to do to get from 1 terminal to the other

     

    There is a train that runs outside security between the two terminals. Be sure to leave plenty of time.

    Will we need to leave secured area and retrieve baggage? From tor onto cancun

     

    What airline?

     

    Air Canada

     

    You'll have to ask the agent when you check your bags, but your layover is short enough that you shouldn't have to.

    We depart from YYC to Providenciales T&C with a layover in YYZ. Do we go through customs in TorontoS? We are flying with Air Canada. Does AC transfer our luggage for us or do we have to get the luggage after our arrival?

     

    There is no Canadian Immigration and Customs when leaving Canada. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Toronto. You will go through Turks & Caicos immigration and Customs in Providenciales. You don't have to do anything with your bags in Toronto.
