Do I have to pick up checked bags to go through Customs. flying from Britain with layover at YYZ then on to Fredericton, NB
Hi, I am flying from YVR (Vancouver) to Phl (Philly) through YYZ with 2 checked bag. is it correct that I do not need to pick up the luggage and re-check in at YYZ anymore?
That is correct if both flights are on the same reservation.
Hello. I'm flying DTW to YYC via Delta then Westjet and connecting through YYZ with checked baggage. My connection time is 80 minutes. Is this enough time to make my connection and will I need to recheck the baggage in YYZ? Thank you.
Yes, that should be enough time. You shouldn't have to do anything with your bags in Toronto.
Hi I am taking a flight to California from Toronto with a connection in Vancouver , where will I have to do my immigration for USA?
You will go through US Immigration and Customs Preclearance in Vancouver.
We are flying from Detroit to Calgary - connecting thru YYZ, all on Air Canada. How much time should we allow between flights for clearing customs? Most forums say we will have to pick up our bags and recheck them. But the YYZ airport info says that in some circumstances you don't have to do that. It said to contact your airline for more info. When I called Air Canada I didn't get much help.
Flying Air Canada from the US you almost never have to claim your bags when transiting Toronto. 60-80 minutes is sufficient.
We have a 1.5 hour window to clear customs, collect and recheck luggage and get to our connection to YEG. All on AC. Is this enough time? Is there a customs/immigration fast track lane for business class travellers?
That should be enough time.
I am travelling from Ottawa trough Toronto to Tampa, Florida, do I clear customs in Ottawa or Toronto. I have a 1 hour layover, is this enough time.
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. That is just enough time.
Flying on west jet from Thunder Bay and connecting to Iceland air is two hrs enough time to connect from the west jet flight to Iceland air
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Flying from YOW thru YYZ w/ 2 hr layover to FCO (Rome) all on AC. Will we have to claim luggage & clear customs at Pearson or will luggage be routed directly onto 2nd flight and clear customs in Rome? Will we have to be at Ottawa airport 3 hrs in advance of first flight as we are travelling internationally?
There is no Canadian customs when leaving Canada. All you have to do in Toronto is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. No, you don't have to get to the Ottawa airport 3 hours ahead of your flight.
Thank you very much ZAP. So the luggage won't have to be picked up and rechecked in Toronto ~ it will go straight to Rome? Appreciate your help.
That is correct.
Hi! I'm travelling from YVR to EZE (argentina) with a connection at YYZ, changing planes. Where do I clear customs? At YVR or al YYZ? 90 minutes enough time? Thank you!
There is no Canadian customs when leaving Canada. All you have to do in Toronto on the way to Buenos Aires is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You go through Argentine Immigration and Customs in Buenos Aires.
