we are arriving gate D39 from Vancouver what is the walking distance from there to the international departure area in terminal 1 departing to Bermuda? No gate # as of yet. Thanks
Is the first flight also on Air Canada? If so it should be a 10-20 minute walk, probably closer to 10.
I am flying from Toronto to Cancun with a 1 1/2 hour layover in Miami. Do I have to pick up my luggage in Miami for the connecting flight or will it flow through? Will I have enough time if I have to pick it up? Never travelled before so I don't know what to do.
If both flights are on American then all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Miami on the way to Cancun as you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You have enough time.
Yes they are both on American Airlines, so that is great. Thanks

I'm British, flying from the UK to Ottawa, via Amsterdam, with KLM and Westjet. The journey is on one ticket, and KLM have said baggage should be ticketed through to Ottawa.
For our final leg, we have a transfer time of 1hr20. KLM lands in Toronto Terminal 3, and Westjet departs in terminal 3.
Will we have enough time to grab baggage, go through customs and drop the baggage off?
Many thanks!
That will be very difficult.
I am flying Air Canada from Dallas to London and have a connecting flight in Toronto. The layover is only 1 hour long. Do we have to go through customs? Will I have time or is this impossible?
You have to go through Canadian passport control. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
If I am travelling from us to Montreal via Toronto Pearson, do I have to pick up my luggage and go through security? And if yes will they take alcohol from my bag?
You will not have to claim your bags and you are allowed to bring alcohol in your checked baggage.
Is this a recent change? I flew from Orlando to New Brunswick with a stop in Toronto in October and I had to collect bags, then once I passed through Canadian customs, my bags were rechecked.

Please help
Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, you have to claim your bags to take them through Canadian customs and go through security in Toronto.
How is the immigration process? Do I get to go pass immigration at YYZ or Vancouver? Do I check bags before and check it in again in the second flight, both flight via AirCanada?
You will go through Canadian immigration and Customs in Toronto. You should have enough time. I believe you will have to claim your bags to bring them through Canadian customs.
Flying from Quebec to Toronto to Chicago. Will I go thru Immigration in Toronto. Only have 1 hr and 23 minutes. Is that enough time?
Yes, you will go through US Immigration and Customs Preclearance in Toronto. You should have enough time.
It sounds like enough time but don't delay or make any stops. Anything under 2 hours is usually cutting it close.
