  • Will I make the connection?
    Apr 24, 2016
    I'm flying from LHR to HAV, with a connection in YYZ. Both flights in/out of terminal 1, and both with Air Canada. Connection is 1hr15 - do you think this is realistic? Will my bag be transferred as same carrieror will I need to take through security again? Thanks


    That should be enough time. You should not have to claim your bag.


  • AC to KE
    Apr 23, 2016
    travelling from YQB to YYZ (AC) and then YYZ-ICN (KE), tickets were bought separately. I get that we have to change Terminal, Korean Air lines seems to need to see our credit card to confirm our valid E-ticket. Do we have to do that in terminal 1 or in terminal 3 ? Also do we need to pick our luggage before changing terminals?


    Yes, you will need to claim your baggage from Terminal 1 take it to Terminal 3, re-check it and they will check your credit card then.


    Thank you for your quick answer, it's really appreciated !

    Hi one of my friend is travelling from newfoundland to amsterdam and she came on a scholariship only for six months, however she has a layover at Toronto for 3 hours, can she pass the security and come meet me at the terminal?


    Yes, she can leave security to go see you, then go back through security before her flight to Amsterdam


  • 3.5-hour layover - meeting someone in airport
    Apr 19, 2016
    I'm flying Air Canada from Edmonton to Orlando with a 3.5-hour layover in Toronto. I'm checked in (along with my luggage) to my destination. Is there enough time for me to exit and meet someone on the other side of security? Do I need to pick up my luggage?


    There's a little time. However, the connection is built for you to head straight for US Immigration preclearance after you arrive in Toronto.

    Hi, will be arriving in Pearson at 8am from Halifax, connecting flight to Punta Cana leaves at 9 am, do we have to go through screening again? thanks


    No, as long as both flights are on the same airline all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • T1 to T3 2 hours
    Apr 18, 2016
    I am flying in from Sault ste. Marie (YAM) to YYZ, then flying from YYZ to Amsterdam (AMS) I land in terminal 1 and fly out of terminal 3, will 2 hours be enough time? Also do I collect my bags? Where do I go through customs? Thank you


    There is no Canadian customs when exiting Canada. Are your reservations on one ticket or two separate tickets? What airlines are you flying?


    Our reservations are on one ticket through Expedia we are flying air canada and KLM. Do you there is enough time? Thank you


    You won't have to claim your bags. I think you have just enough time. You will have to go through security again.


    Thank you


  • Transit YYZ Terminal 3 to Terminal 1 how ?
    Apr 17, 2016
    I am coming in from Carribean airlines to Terminal 3 at 7:10pm and then going to T3 for flight to Warsaw LOT airlines. Will I have engouh time, and how do I get to T3 and how long? Thanks.


    You didn't post your departure time so I don't know if you have enough time.


  • US Customs
    Apr 14, 2016
    I am flying into Toronto (terminal 3) from Canada for a connection to the US. I know that I have to collect my bag prior to proceeding through customs, etc. My question is, I have a friend arriving to this terminal 40 mins after me from another flight (also going to the US), and would like to wait for her before going through this process. Is it possible to wait (after picking up my luggage) to do this? We will have about a 4 hour layover total.


    Yes, considering your long layover you may not even be allowed into the preclearance area until closer to your flight.


  • T3 International to T3 Domestic
    Apr 13, 2016
    I arrive at T3 from the Caribbean (Caribbean Airlines) at 7:10pm and connecting to T3 domestic (Westjet) for 8pm departure. I have 45min for my connection And only carry on bags. Do I have to go through security? Do I have enough time?


    Yes, you will have to go through Canadian immigration, customs, and security. WHile I won't say it's impossible, it's pretty close to it.


  • Connecting
    Apr 12, 2016
    Briitish citizen flying DCA - YYZ terminal 3 then terminal 3 YYZ -LHR 1st leg Air Wisconsin 2nd leg BA Will I have to retrieve my luggage in Toronto? Is Terminal 3 big? and I read that the new ETA for passing through YYZ isn't needed until 'the fall' ? Thank you for any help offered


    I believe you will have to claim your baggage as I believe Terminal 3 isn't set up for international to international connections in the same way as Terminal 1 is. Terminal 3 isn't that large.


  • luggage/customs
    Apr 12, 2016
    traveling from Chicago O'Hare Int. to Halifax NS with layover in Toronto, do we have to collect our luggage and go though customs if so how do we then recheck our luggage


    In Toronto you will go through Canadian immigration, claim your bags, go through customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk immediately after, and then go through security and to your departure gate.


  • enough time in YYZ
    Apr 7, 2016
    we will be flying through YYZ on route from Vancouver to Sao Paulo. We have about 1hr45mins. is this enough time? would we need to change terminals?


    What airlines are you flying? Is everything on the same reservation or separate?


    all is on the same reservation (air Canada)


    Yes, that is plenty of time. You don't have to change terminals. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Will one hour and 20 minutes be enough time time connect to my flight to Miami in Toronto? I arrive from Ottawa at 6:50am and flight to Miami is at 8:15. Thank you!

  • Baggage claim, connecting flights
    Apr 3, 2016
    I'm flying from Halifax to St.Maarten(Caribbean). I have a connecting flight in Toronto. Any idea if my luggage will be transferred over to my final destination? or do I have to take my bags out and recheck them in again?


    Forgot to mention I'm flying westjet


    Yes, your bags will be transferred for you. You just have to go to your departure gate.


    Apr 2, 2016
    Flying Air Canada, Halifax to Orlando with connection at Pearson. Do I have to claim my baggage before proceeding to US Customs? If so, is the baggage claim for US connections located in the same are as domestic Baggage claims?


    Your baggage will be waiting for you at the US Immigration and Customs preclearance area. It will not be in the regular domestic baggage claim.
