  • Minimum connection time
    Nov 16, 2016

    At 7:30 on a Wednesday morning in a week, I'll be flying from Ottawa, to Toronto YYZ, then connecting to Tampa. I booked my flight through Aeroplan, which gave me the minimum connection time of 70 minutes. Am I royally screwed here?

     

    If it helps, I'm carry-on only.

     

    That should be enough time. all you have to do is go through US Immigration and Customs Preclearance and to your departure gate.

     

    You would think, but there are a lot of people online saying 2 hrs minimum about this process. Don't I have to clear security again, as well?

     

    The security is after the preclearance checkpoint, so there's rarely a line. 2 Hours how early you should arrive at YYZ if you are starting there with checked bags on a flight to the US. It really doesn't take that long.

     

    I am flying from Calgary to Dubai with a connection in Toronto. I think I need to pick up my luggage in TO recheck to Dubai. How difficult is this process?

     

    So did it end up being enough time for you? I'm doing the same thing, Ottawa to Toronto but then to Salt Lake City Utah. I booked my flight for 2 hours but they changed it to 1 hour 14 minutes. Did you have enough time?

    Hello I'm flying from Anu- LGW connecting in Yyz. My flight from Anu arrives in Yyz at 8:09 and my flight leaves Yyz to Gatwick 9:15, do you think it's enough time?

     

    Are both tickets on the same reservation or two separate reservations? Do you have checked bags? What airlines are you flying?

     

    Both are on west jet...no checked bags

     

    That should be just enough time. Also there's a good chance your flight to London will be delayed, so that will help you.

    Will we have to collect our bags while connecting on a west jet flight? Or will they just be transfered?We will be flying from Winnipeg to Punta Cana connecting at Pearson.

     

    No, you don't have to do anything with your bags in Toronto.

    If I'm flying a United/Air Canada flight from Calgary through Toronto with final destination of Pittsburgh when do I clear US customs?? In Toronto or Pittsburgh?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Pittsburgh. Both flights will be operated by Air Canada.

     

    in Toronto

     

    Sorry yes, I meant Toronto, my brain was thinking faster than my fingers.

    From Ottawa,arriving in Toronto via Air Canada and on to Manila via PAL on one reservation ticket, do I re-check baggage in Toronto?

     

    No, you won't have to do anything with your bags in Vancouver on your way to Manila.

     

    Thanks. Toronto is our connecting flight. Vancouver is a stop over but usually we don't get off the plane. No re-check of baggage in Toronto?

     

    Yes, that is correct.

    My arrival time for my flight is 08:25 and my departure time is 09:10 Is this enough time to catch my connecting flight or am I sure to miss it.?? The good news is arrival will be terminal 3 and departure is the same terminal 3 but I have never been to this airport so will I be running.

     

    Where are you flying into Toronto from? What airlines are you flying?

     

    i will be coming on from winnipeg on a westjet flight

     

    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    and hopefully the 1st flight is not late!!

    If I'm travelling from YSB-YYZ on AC then YYZ-YLW on WS and have a checked bag, how much connecting time is realistic to be able to change terminals?

     

    I would want a bare minimum of 2 hours between flights.

     

  • connecting from US Air Canada to AC flight operated by Austrian Air

    If I check my bags on flight from Boston to Toronto, do I have to reclaim them during layover and recheck to board the Austrian Air flight (AC flight operated by Austrian--both terminal 1)?

     

    No, you will not have to claim your bags in Toronto on the way to Vienna. You will just go through Canadian passport control and to your departure gate.

     

    Many thanks. AC person told me I would have to claim and recheck. I only have 1:20 layover sonI will pray that you are right 😁

     

  • Connecting from BOS-YYZ flight to YYZ-ICN

    I am traveling to ICN via YYZ. Currently scheduled to arrive on AC at Terminal 1 at 10:20 am and my YYZ-ICN flight is on KAL at 12:20 pm from Terminal 3. Unfortunately the two legs are on different tickets but the good thing is that I have no checked-in baggage. Does 2 hours seem like enough connection time? Also, do I have to go through Canadian immigration to connect through YYZ? THanks!

     

    Yes you'll have to clear CBSA. 2 hours should be enough time as it'll be an off peak time at the airport. Follow the purple connection signs to T3 (C gates). The train runs every few minutes. Check in online for the KAL flight to avoid missing the cutoff.

  • Cuba to Toronto to Ottawa

    Our family is arriving in Terminal 3 from Cuba at 11:15 p.m. My son has to head to Ottawa and flight leaves from Terminal 1 at 12:30 a.m. Is 1.25 hours enough time to clear customs and get to Terminal 1. He will just have carry on, no checked baggage.

     

    With carry-ons only and the late evening arrival, it should be barely enough time. It is complicated by the fact that it is unlikely he will be unable to check in online for his flight to Ottawa when in Cuba. Maybe he can check in online from the plane with his phone when you are taxiing to the gate in Toronto.

    Flying from Ottawa to Toronto (WestJet), then Toronto to Amsterdam to Delhi (Jet Airways). Is 90 minutes enough time for connection in Toronto?

     

    Are both tickets on the same reservation or is it two different reservations?

    coming from Calgary and have 8 hours at YYZ and would like to go out to see Niagara Falls, do I have to clear Canadian immigration? We do not have check-in bags. Do we have enough time for that?

     

    In Toronto you will be expected to go right to US Immigration and customs Preclearance. However, without checked bags you could leave the airport, go to the falls, and then come back and go to regular US Immigration and Customs Preclearance. Be aware that there is a lot of traffic on the segment of road between YYZ and Niagara falls.

    Flying in from Manila via Philippine Airlines with stop over in Vancouver to Toronto and a WestJet connecting flight to Ottawa. (1) do we clear immigration in Toronto and check in bags again for westjet? (2) lay over is just 1 hour and 35 minutes, will that be enough to get to connecting flight?

     

    I believe all Canadian immigration is taken care of in Vancouver, so all you have to do in Toronto is claim your bags and re-check them with Westjet and go through security. Meaning you'd have just enough time.
