We are flying from Detroit to Calgary - connecting thru YYZ, all on Air Canada. How much time should we allow between flights for clearing customs? Most forums say we will have to pick up our bags and recheck them. But the YYZ airport info says that in some circumstances you don't have to do that. It said to contact your airline for more info. When I called Air Canada I didn't get much help.
Flying Air Canada from the US you almost never have to claim your bags when transiting Toronto. 60-80 minutes is sufficient.
We have a 1.5 hour window to clear customs, collect and recheck luggage and get to our connection to YEG. All on AC. Is this enough time? Is there a customs/immigration fast track lane for business class travellers?
That should be enough time.
I am travelling from Ottawa trough Toronto to Tampa, Florida, do I clear customs in Ottawa or Toronto. I have a 1 hour layover, is this enough time.
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. That is just enough time.
Flying on west jet from Thunder Bay and connecting to Iceland air is two hrs enough time to connect from the west jet flight to Iceland air
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Flying from YOW thru YYZ w/ 2 hr layover to FCO (Rome) all on AC. Will we have to claim luggage & clear customs at Pearson or will luggage be routed directly onto 2nd flight and clear customs in Rome? Will we have to be at Ottawa airport 3 hrs in advance of first flight as we are travelling internationally?
There is no Canadian customs when leaving Canada. All you have to do in Toronto is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. No, you don't have to get to the Ottawa airport 3 hours ahead of your flight.
Thank you very much ZAP. So the luggage won't have to be picked up and rechecked in Toronto ~ it will go straight to Rome? Appreciate your help.
That is correct.
Hi! I'm travelling from YVR to EZE (argentina) with a connection at YYZ, changing planes. Where do I clear customs? At YVR or al YYZ? 90 minutes enough time? Thank you!
There is no Canadian customs when leaving Canada. All you have to do in Toronto on the way to Buenos Aires is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You go through Argentine Immigration and Customs in Buenos Aires.
I am traveling from Georgetown, Guyana to Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada (YMM) However, I have a 13 hour layover at YYZ before my connecting flight to YMM. Will I be required to claim my luggage at YYZ to go through customs? And would I be required to pay another baggage policy for my connecting flight?
P.S my flights are all on one reservation
Is your layover during the day or overnight?
Flying Air Canada from Jacksonville to Munich with a 1 hour layover in Toronto. Will this be enough time to get through passport control and to the connecting flight to Munich?
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I fly on air Canada from DTW to HND, has 2 hours for connection at YYZ, enough time for me? How can I check which terminal I'm going to ahead to?
If both flights are on Air Canada they will both be in Terminal 1. You have enough time.
I am travelling from Montreal to Nassau on Westjet with a plane change in Toronto. We have a 55 minute connection time in Toronto. Is that enough time?
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
