    I will be flying to London from YVR and have a 50 minute layover in Toronto but am wondering if this will be long enough and if I'll have to claim and recheck my bags at all if both are with the same airline?

    hi. does anyone know if I have to go through customs when connecting at pearson to go to Punta Cana.... I am worried about transfer time of only 50 minutes.....

     

    No, there is no Canadian Customs when leaving Canada. If you are connecting from another point in Canada, all you have to do in Toronto is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I'm flying from Ottawa to Toronto, Toronto to Los Angeles, Los Angeles to Auckland, all on one connecting flight. If my bags are checked through will I have to collect them in Toronto? Or just in lax?

     

    If this is all on one reservation, you will not retrieve your bags until you land in Auckland, as you will go through US Preclearance in Toronto.

     

    You will actually claim them in Toronto to go through US Immigration and customs. You will not claim them in LAX.

    I'm flying from halifax to Korea via Toronto. When I go from terminal 1 domestic to terminal 1 international will I go through security again? I have lots of time, 4 hours for the connection. Wondering what to expect.

     

    No, you won't have to go through security again.

    I'm flying from Seattle to Atthens with connection in Toronto and Montreal. Do I need to pick up me luggages at Toronto through custom because my next connection will be Montreal before Athens?

     

    No, You will have to ask the agents, your connection is a bit unusual because you are connecting to a domestic flight in Canada and THEN leaving the cuntry.

     

    sorry, country.

    I am flying from LaGuardia to Toronto Pearson 3 on WestJet, then taking a connecting WestJet flight from Terminal 3 to Halifax. I will have checked luggage. Is 1.5 hrs enough time to allow to making the connection? Will I have to recheck bags?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, I believe in T3 you still have to claim and re-check your bags, although the photo bag identification system they have in T1 may be installed by now.

    We're flying from New York into Pearson airport Toronto terminal 1 and land at 6.30pm flying with Air Canada. However we then need to get to terminal 3 same airport to catch flight back to Gatwick Airport UK at 10.05pm. But gates close at 9.05pm. Will we have enough time to make the flight from terminal 3 taking into account getting off the plane, collecting bags and getting to terminal 3 from terminal 1..

     

    That should be enough time if your flight from New York is on-time.

    No, you don't have to do anything with your bags. You have plenty of time.

     

    excellent, thank you! i've been finding mixed answers online so i figured i'd ask.

     

    I checked my bag flyin into Toronto but my hotel meeting is at the Sheraton Gateway Terminal 3. How do I get my luggage?

  • Passport control for connections?

    I'm traveling from Boston to London Heathrow with a connection in Toronto. Will I need to reclaim baggage and go through passport control in Toronto before getting my connection? My layover is only 1.5 hours

     

    No, you don't have to do anything with your bags in Toronto - just go through Canadian passport control and to your departure gate.

     

    Any idea how long it takes to get through? Is it streamlined for US citizens?

     

    Yes, it's a brief process. Should take less than 10 minutes.

     

  • Philly to Toronto to Calgary

    Flying Air Canada Philly to Calgary with an hour and a half layover in Toronto. The reservations show the same terminal (T1) for both flights. We will have checked bags on the flight. Is that enough time for the layover? Will we need to pick up our bags in Toronto or are they automatically sent to our next flight? Will we have to go through customs or security upon arrival in Toronto, or not til Calgary? Thanks in advance. I've never been to Canada before and never had a layover!

     

    In Toronto you will go through Canadian Immigration and customs. I believe there is now a system in place where passengers coming into T1 from the US and connecting identify their bags on a screen rather than have to claim and re-check them.

     

  • Do I have to collect my baggage when connecting ?

    I flew from Cuba to Ieland and the connection was through Toronto. I was told (by 3 people in the airport) that I did not have to claim my baggage at customs in Toronto as I was not staying in the country so when my luggage did not arrive at the conveyor, I moved straight through to my connecting gate. However, my luggage did not arrive in Dublin. Does anyone know if I should have claimed my baggage at customs in Toronto? I flew into terminal 1 and out of terminal 3 but my baggage was checked the whole way through to Dublin as it was 1 ticket, however, as it did not arrive ( and the airline is not being very useful) I am wondering if I should have claimed the luggage at customs in Toronto. Thanks.
