    I have a friend from Calgary that is going to Vietnam. She has a layover in Vancouver on the way back (where I live) and I was wondering if I will be able to hang out with her in the airport during her layover as she waits for her flight to Calgary? So her flight will be international, Vietnam to Vancouver and then Domestic, Vancouver to Calgary

     

    Once your friend arrives at YVR, she will need to pass the International Arrivals procedure and stay in the secured area. You can only see her there by getting a pass issued. Also note that Domestic & International terminals are only connected on level 2 at their unsecured areas. Airport contact: 604-207-7077 or e-mail http://www.yvr.ca/en/contact.asp.

    I am flying direct from toronto to sydney with a stop in vancouver. Are you allowed to disembark the plane on this 1 hr and 40 min stop

     

    Yes, as long as the flight is on-time you will likely be allowed to disembark.

    We are flying from Seattle, US to Beijing, China via YVR on Air Canada. Change planes in YVR then to Beijing on Air Canada. Do we need to recheck our luggages at YVR? Do we need to go through Canada customs (we are US citizens)? We have 2 hrs layover with two kids, will that be enough?

     

    Yes, you will go through Canadian immigration at YVR then immediately recheck your baggage. 2 Hours should be enough time.
