  • Baggage Claim
    Dec 19, 2016
    I will be traveling from Boston to Montreal, and from Montreal to Toronto, and from Toronto to Korea. (All by Air Canada) When I arrive at Montreal, I have only 60mins of transferring time. And, when I arrive at Toronto, I have like 63mins to transfer. So.. 1) Is that an enough time to catch the next flight in the airport of Montreal and Toronto? 2) In which airport should I claim my baggage? (Montreal or Toronto) Many thanks for your help.


    You shouldn't have to claim your bags at EITHER airport. You should have just enough time in Montreal as you will have to go through Canadian passport control. In Toronto all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Do really appreciate your prompt response!


  • Delhi - Toronto - Halifax
    Dec 15, 2016
    Hi friends Please let me know that if some one is flying on Jetair delhi to Halifax via Toronto as a tourist then is the immigration process done at the POe i.e. Toronto or at Halifax also is the luggage to be claimed and rechecked Into westjet from Toronto to Halifax when it's on the same booking ? Thanks well in advance for your responses


    You will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs in Toronto. Ask the Border Canada agents whether or not you will have to claim and re-check your bags.


  • Cleveland to Montreal with a connection in Toronto
    Dec 14, 2016
    I will be travelling to Montreal from Cleveland with a connection in Toronto on December 29th. Both flights were reserved via United Website. CLE to YYZ will be operated by Air Georgian and YYZ to YUL will be operated by Air Canada. Do you think 1hr 35mins connection time is enough for this transit? Do I need to pick up my check-in baggage on YYZ and re-check it?


    Yes, that should be enough time. Passengers coming from the US on Air Canada usually do not have to claim their bags to go through Canadian Customs in Toronto, but check with Border Canada.


    Thank you ZAP, appreciate for your response!!


  • Connection

    Hi there, My husband and I will be flying into YYZ with Westjet ( from Jamaica) in the evening Jan 6th with a connection 2 hrs 48 minutes later with Westjet again to calgary. My friend said we have to claim luggage and go through customs and that we probably won't have enough time to make the connection because customs and checking in and dealing with luggage will take too long...is 2hr 48 enough time? Have never flown into YYZ and she says customs is far away from arrivals. Thanks


    That should be enough time.


  • Dublin to Ottawa with a connection in Toronto
    Dec 6, 2016
    I will be flying from Dublin to Ottawa and have a 1h55 layover in Toronto. I know I need to change terminals. Will this be enough time to make my connection? Do I need to recheck my luggage in Toronto?


    What airlines are you flying? Are you on one reservation or two separate reservations?


    I'm flying with Aer Lingus and it was booked on the same reservation!


    Sorry, Aer Lingus and Air Canada


    You will have to ask Border Canada whether or not you will have to claim your bags or not to go through US Customs. I believe most passengers arriving in Terminal 3 do. You should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly. If you miss your connection, Air Canada has very frequent flights from Toronto to Ottawa.


  • Transfer in Toronto
    Dec 6, 2016
    Hi. I'm flying with Air Canada from Boston to Torronto then Seoul, Korea. My connection time is 1h 10m in the morning. Both of flight are Air Canada and as I know I don't need to claim the baggage. But is it enough time to transfer? Same with going back flight which is 1h 30m connection time?


    Yes, that should be just enough time both ways.


  • Posrt of Spain to Toronto to London
    Nov 30, 2016
    My layover in Toronto is 2hr 25 mins, flying in from PoS with Caribbean airlines and out to London with Air Canada. I only have hand luggage - is that enough time to get from T3 to T1 and clear customs etc if needed?


    With only hand luggage I think you can do it if the flight from Port of Spain is on-time.


  • AA+AC connection
    Nov 29, 2016
    My AA flight arrives at terminal 3 at 11:00am. I then have an AC flight to Tokyo at 1:40pm. I understand that I need to go through immigration, custom, recheck my bag and take the LINK. Do you think 2hr40 minutes is enough for that connection?


    That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Hi, I'm flying with United from Chicago to Toronto, and then with WOW air from Toronto to the UK on the New Year day, will 1h 20 min enough? and I will need to recheck in my luggage. Thank you!


    No, that's not realistically enough time as you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through Customs, change terminals, re-check your bags with WOW and go through security. There's no way you can do that in that amount of time.


    thanks ZAP for your reply!


    And sorry, I meant Canadian Immigration, not US Immigration. The rest of my answer applies


    Hi i am fliying with Westjet london to utah, with a layover 1:24h in Toronto, the flight Toronto- slc its operated by Delta. Will I have enoght time? Westjet says that its the same terminal 3. Thanks

    I will be arriving in Toronto from Miami and catching a connecting flight to Vancouver (both on Air Canada), do I have to clear immigration and customs and re-check my baggage upon arrival? I have only 1hr 15mins connection time.


    You should have enough time. You will go through Canadian Immigration and Customs in Toronto but most passengers coming from the US no longer have to claim their bags in Toronto to do so.


  • customs in toronto
    Nov 21, 2016
    I am flying from Chicago to Toronto to New Delhi in March. I have 1 hour and 30 minutes connection time in Toronto. Do I have to go through Customs in Toronto? Is 1.5 hours enough time?


    You will go through Canadian passport control in Toronto but not customs. You should have enough time.

    Hello, I am looking to book a flight from Honolululu > Vancouver > Toronto > London on West Jet Airlines. Everything will be booked on 1 ticket, but my connection in Toronto is only 1 hr 5 mins, I was wondering if this will be enough time to connect? Any advice will be greatly appreciated!


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

    Hello, I am arriving from DTW at 815am on Air Canada. I have a connection to Cuba on WestJet at 955am. Will I make it?


    With checked bags I think that will be very difficult if not impossible.


  • Halifax to Newark
    Nov 21, 2016
    I have a flight from Halifax to Newark. I fly Halifax to Toronto on Air Canada and Toronto to Newark on United. I'll also have a checked bag. I have 1 hr and 35 min layover in Toronto. Will I have enough time to get to my connecting flight? Will I need to recheck my bag? Also if I miss my flight will I just get out on the next one?


    Yes, you should have enough time. Ask the officers in US Immigration and Customs preclearance in Toronto if you need to claim your bags. Yes, if you miss your connection you will be rebooked on the next one.


  • Ottawa to Minneapolis
    Nov 17, 2016
    I'm traveling from Ottawa to Minneapolis via Toronto on Christmas day (Air Canada). I've done this flight many times, but never on Christmas. My connection time in Toronto is 1h 20min; is this likely enough time to go through customs, etc.? I've had to hurry in the past but don't know if it's better or worse on Christmas (afternoon).


    Christmas afternoon should not be busy.


    Thank you!
