  • Short Layover
    Feb 9, 2017
    I will be arriving in YYZ from FCO (Rome) via Air Transat and catching a connecting flight to the US via Air Canada. I'm arriving in Toronto at 5:35 PM and my connecting flight leaves at 6:30 PM (assuming boarding begins at 6 PM). Will 35 mins to an hour be enough time to get through customs and security? We are not checking our bags. Thank you!


    You will also have to change terminals and pre-clear US Immigration and Customs. No, that is not even close to enough time.


    Approximately how much time would all of this require?


    2.5 hours

    Flying from Los Angeles to Venice. Layover of 1 hour 14 mins. Enough time to make connection?


    I should add that both flights on AIR CANADA


    Yes, that is enough time. You just have to go through Canadian passport control and to your departure gate.


  • Customs?

    Hi -- I am flying from Newark (EWR) to Barbados (BGI) with a layover in Tortonto (YYZ). Will I need to go through customs before transferring? Both fights are with Air Canada. If yes, my layover is 1 hour and 14 minutes. Will this leave me enough time? I will be traveling with a carryon bag only.


    Yes, in Toronto you will go through Canadian passport control before you can get to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

    We are traveling 7-1-2017 on Air Canada from AMS to ORD via YYZ our time between flights is 3 hours - how much walking is there between arriving Terminal 1 and departing Terminal 2 with customs etc. Is there a handicap train or assistance?


    Toronto does not have a terminal 2 - I believe what you're seeing is your arrival terminal at ORD. Both of your flights in Toronto will be in Terminal 1. You have plenty of time.

    Arriving Toronto Terminal 3 from Amsterdam at 11:45, connecting to Ottawa (terminal 3, departure 13:05). One ticket - codeshare KLM-Westjet. Will I have to collect bags on way through customs? Is it enough time? Thanks!


    Yes, you will have to collect your bags to go through Canadian Customs. You should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


    Phew, that's a relief! Thanks!

    Is there enough connection time if I arrive in Toronto at 8:11pm and take off to Vancouver at 9:25? Both flights are on Air Canada. Also would we have to claim our luggage in Toronto


    Yes, that is enough time. You should not have to claim your bags in Toronto but check with Border Canada.

    Just wondering, we have a flight with Air Canada we go from Halifax to Atlanta with a layover in Toronto. our layover is only 1 hour and 20 minutes, will this be enough time? Also do we have to get our luggage in Toronto or will it just be put on the connecting flight? Lastly what is the process in Toronto during connections?


    Yes, that is enough time. In Toronto you will go through US Immigration and Customs Preclearance where your bags will be waiting for you.


  • San Diego - YYZ - Quebec City with 1h25m transit time?
    Jan 26, 2017
    US residents traveling to YQB via YYZ. AC is selling tickets with about 1h25m transit time on both sides. Since we have to do customs into Canada inbound and preclearance into the US outbound. Is this enough time? I am told that preclearance lines are really long in August..


    That should be enough time.


  • connecting flight to catch from toronto.
    Jan 24, 2017
    I have a flight to catch from toronto to newwark with 40 minutes to finish immigration. Is this possible?


    You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. If both flights are on the same reservation, all you have to do in Newark is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. I can help you more if you post what airlines you are flying and where you are connecting to.


    I'm sorry, I may have misread your post. Are you connecting in Toronto or in Newark? Please post your entire itinerary (including airlines).

    Jan 23, 2017
    Hi, I'm a Canadian and will be returning from Munich at Terminal 1 and will have 1 hr and 20 minutes to transfer to Terminal M for a domestic flight back home to YVR (Vancouver). Is this enough time? Will I need to clear customs and transfer terminals as well? Both flights are on same reservation through Lufthansa. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!


    Toronto does not have a "Terminal M". Both flights are in Terminal 1. The second flight will be operated by Air Canada. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.
