  • connection time in Toronto YYZ
    Jan 19, 2017
    Flying from LAX TO Rome with 1.5 hr layover in Toronto. Is 1.5 hours enough time ? We are US citizens, do we have to go thru customs on our way to Rome? Flying back to LAX from Venice with 1 hr and 40 min layover. Is it enough time >


    You will go through Canadian passport control when you arrive in Toronto then go to your departure gate. You will go through Schengen Entry passport control in Rome. On the return you will go through Schengen exit passport control in Rome and then proceed directly to US Immigration and Customs Preclearance in Toronto. Both connections should be sufficient if all flights are on Air Canada.


  • 1 hour 25 min layover LHR-SYR through YYZ, enough time?

    United States citizen, I won't have a checked bag and have Mobile Passport. Is a 1 hour and 25-minute layover enough time in YYZ to go through customs?


    Yes, that should be enough time if the flight from London is on-time.

    Arriving from Mexico 8:35PM Connecting to Kelowna 10:15 PM, Does this allow enough time for custom clearance in Terminal 3?


    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly and both flights are on the same reservation.

    We arrive WS518 8:29 from Winnipeg and leave for Barbados WS2513 at 9:15. Are we going to have enough time between gates?


    Yes, as long as the flight from Winnipeg is on-time. It doesn't leave a lot of time to spare.


  • Worried about short layover

    Flying London to Thunder Bay. 1 hour 20 min layover. Not a Canadian citizen. Is this enough time to get through immigration/customs. Will I have to pick up/drop of my check in baggage. If I am delayed because of immigration/baggage queues, will air Canada look after me (all flights booked through them)


    That will be pretty difficult. If you do miss your connection then you will be booked on the next flight to Thunder Bay


    Thanks for that. I'll see if can I go with only hand luggage, but it will be difficult.


    i do this regularly, to see the other halves Canadian family, its tight but always doable, i've only had to run once when the LHR-YYZ flight was delayed, other than that all ok, however if on the same booking your protected anyway


    Thanks so much for that. I can handle missing the connecting flight if we are covered. I was imagining all sorts of financial implications! :)

    Fyling from DUB to YUL with a connection in YYZ on WestJet all in terminal . I am a Canadian citizen. I have 1 hour for connection. Will I have enough time and will I have to pick up my luggage and re-check it. Thanks


    That is just enough time. Ask a Border Canada employee whether or not you have to claim your bags when you arrive.


    Thank you

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


  • Advice needed on connection YYZ please
    Jan 14, 2017
    Hi, I am looking at a connection arriving on KLM from Amsterdam to Toronto at 15.40 and departing to USA on either Air Canada (departure 17.35) or Delta (departure 17.40). Will be on separate ticket, but KLM can interline bags upon request at check in in Amsterdam and can do online check-in day in advance. Will there be enough time to make this connection? Thanks for your help!


    Either connection is pretty difficult. The Delta one will be easier since everything is in the same terminal.


    Thank you so much ZAP!


    Hi ZAP, hope you could help me out again with following question regarding connection YYZ from KL (AMS) to DL (USA)... I see conflicting info whether or not to reclaim through-checked bags upon arrival in YYZ and to drop them on connecting belts. Do I need to clear Canadian customs before heading to US pre-clearance while in transit? Your advise is much appreciated!


  • Connecting flight and immigration.

    Flying in from london to toronto and have a connecting flight to thunderbay...just 1 hour layover..ist it enough?


    London, Ontario or London, England? What airline?


    London, Engand. British airways from london to toronto and air canada from toronto to thunderbay


    I think I've missed the flight because my British Airways flight was delayed an hour. Will Air canada help me with another flight?


    If it's two separate reservations you'll have to pay the change fee and possibly a fare difference.

    Clarification: Flying in/out of YYZ. (ATL-YWG) both flights on same ticket


  • Enough time?
    Jan 4, 2017
    Flying in from ATL via Delta; on to YWG via Westjet with only 1 hr. 7 minutes layover. Is this even legal? (Expedia claims it is. ) I had booked a better flight but Delta. "changed my itinerary" and Exp. accepted it "on my behalf"! WillI have enough time? Thanks!


    That's just enough time if your flight from Atlanta is on-time.


    Thanks, Zap!


  • Clearing Customs and making a connection in Toronto
    Jan 3, 2017
    Leaving from Ottawa with a 1 hr connecting flight in Toronto to Puerto Vallarta. What's the drill re baggage and customs. Can we make the connection


    There is no Canadian customs when leaving Canada. If both flights are on the same airline all you have to do in Toronto is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I will fly from Montreal to London with a connection in Toronto. I will land in Toronto at 7:55 PM and I have 1hr05min of layover in Toronto. Will that be enough time? Both flights are on the same reservation with WestJet.


    Yes, that should be enough time.

    You just have to go through Canadian passport control and then to your departure gate. You have enough time.

    No, you do not.

    My husband and I are flying Jamaica -> Toronto -> Montreal -> Moncton. We have 1hr15 in Toronto before our Montreal flight. Is that enough time and will we need to claim our checked bag?


    That should be just enough time. I believe you will have to claim your bags, but ask Border Canada.
