  • Domestic to US Connections US PreClear?
    Mar 2, 2017
    We are travelling Calgary-Toronto-FLL do we preclear US customs in YYZ? do we collect our baggage to do this?? We are travelling on Canadian Passports. Thanks for your help


    Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You may or may not have to claim your luggage in Toronto (ask).


    Do we grab luggage for this connection to preclear US Customs or do we identify by video like in VANCOUVER? flying with WJ each leg. Also coing home thru Canadian Customs do we grab luggage or identify by video?? Thanks


  • Ottawa to Mexico city via Toronto
    Feb 28, 2017
    Is it enough connection time from Ottawa -> Toronto -> Mexico with WestJet? The connection time is 1h13min


    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thanks a lot!

    My 92 year olds friends mother is flying with air Canada from north bay to Yyz to Rsw wirh wheelchair assistance. Can I meet her at Yyz and spend time with her during her layover or will she be kept in through security?.


    No, she will be kept inside the secure area, specifically the US Immigration pre-cleared area.


  • Transfer times
    Feb 27, 2017
    I am booked with United for return journey. Service airline is Air Canada for both journeys - Laguardia to Pearson and Pearson to Dublin Ireland. Is baggage checked through for both flights or should I just take hand luggage. Connection time is 1 hour


    Yes, you just have to go through Canadian passport control and to your departure gate. You don't have to do anything with your bags. You should have enough time.


    Thank you, that's good news. As I am only transferring flights, do I need a Canadian Visa?


    What is your citizenship?


    I arrive in Toronto at 7:38 departure at 8:45 to Jamaica via west jet are we going to have enough time?

    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.

  • Connecting Flight
    Feb 21, 2017
    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"


  • Enough Time?
    Feb 20, 2017
    I am coming from Frankfort(FRA) to Toronto(YYZ) and then Raleigh(RDU), I have only 1 hour and 25 minutes' layover. Flights are Operated by Air Canada, and I travel with US Passport. Is that time enough.? Thanks.


    Yes, that is enough time. In Toronto you will proceed directly to US Immigration and Customs preclearance.


  • 1 hour for US custom
    Feb 20, 2017
    I am coming from Regina to Toronto and then Fort Lauderdale, I have only one hour layover all flights are booked with air Canada with Indian Passport. Is one hour enough for custom clearance? I am confused about that bag picture thing? Thanks


    That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Detroit to Vancouver via Toronto & WestJet
    Feb 15, 2017
    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.


  • time to board
    Feb 22, 2017
    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!


  • Connecting Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 between flights
    Feb 13, 2017
    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.


  • Van - Tor . Land @ 0023 dep 0620
    Feb 12, 2017
    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.


  • connecting flights from YYC to YYZ to Providenciales, T&C
    Feb 12, 2017
    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.
