    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.

    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).

    We are arriving from Philadelphia @ Toronto Pearson Airport flying AA operated by American Eagle landing at 7:55 pm and our connecting flight with AA operated by Westjet leaves at 9:30 pm to Halifax . does that give us enough time to catch connecting flight and do we go through customs in Toronto and do we need to collect our bags..


    That should be enough time. Yes, you go through Canadian immigration and customs in Toronto. You may have to claim your bags.


  • 1hr20min connection via YYZ from Munich to YVR
    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.


  • Vancouver to Toronto to Lisbon
    Jan 20, 2017
    Hi, my flight has a two hours layover. I am coming from Vancouver and connecting in Toronto headed to LIsbon Portugal, do you think this is enough time?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Toronto is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate if both flights are on the same reservation.

    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?
    Jan 17, 2017
    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.

    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

  • Advice needed on connection YYZ please

    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!
