  • connecting flight from SEA to NRT
    Jun 12, 2013
    If I came from SEA by Horizon ariving YVR.If I had check trough NRT already having baggage claim tag but not having JL boarding pass. Can I go to the internal gate without leaving secure area, or just go to JL counter check-in at public area. Can I layover at night when arriving YVR before departure at daytime.


    The JAL gate counter would probably be able to print your boarding pass for you. However, if you're talking about connecting in YVR, you will have to leave the secure area anyway after you clear Canadian immigration. I don't know what you mean with your "layover" question.


    Thank You ZAP Layover I mean if i stay over night at the airport in public area.


    As t staying overnight at YVR: Open http://www.sleepinginairports.net/northamerica/vancouver-airport.htm#.UYPdSEptaiA


    Thank You frmay


    Are you sure you have to leave the secured area after Canadian immigration? What if you do not have any baggage? I heard if you have not baggage you can go straight to the gate. Please see my question above about "Seattle to Shanghai..." My wife is leaving soon!


  • Connecting to a US Flight
    Jan 26, 2013
    I am traveling to Anaheim, California and I arrive in Vancouver at 9:26 having to transfer to my next flight before it takes off at 11am. is that enough time and also will I need to go through baggae claim, Checkin-in, security and customs?


    The nearest Airport to Anaheim is John Wayne Airport, 15 miles from its center. On arrival at Vancouver Airport go through US customs clearance before proceeding to your connecting gate. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/yvr, then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • Connecting flight from Maui to PG
    Jan 19, 2013
    We're arriving from Maui into the Main Terminal at 7:15 a.m. Not sure if we'd have time to make an 8:30 a.m. flight to Prince George?


    Vancouver Airport's International & Domestic Terminals are connected on level 2 in their unsecured areas, where you go through US Arrivals procedure: "If your flight originated outside of Canada or the US & you need to connect to a Canada destination, clear Canadian Customs. Do pick up your baggage immediately after passing Customs, which you then take to the connecting flight counter. Thereafter follow normal Canadian departures procedures & pass through security checkpoint A, and proceed to the west gates (A1-5 & B11-22). Your transfer time should be adequate.


  • International Flight via toronto

    I'm flying to england from YVR via toronto, pearson int'l airport... would 2 hours before flight time be enough time for me to go through security and stuff? thanks


    Make sure your first airline transfers bags to your connecting airline, if using different ones - if not, claim your bag on arrival and check it in with your connecting airline. YYZ has two terminals T1 & T3. T1 has D gates D1-57 & F gates F36-82, T3 has A, B & C gates - A1-7, B7-22, C24-41. The automated Link train runs between both terminals. Your boarding pass & overhead screens on arrival will indicate flight & gate numbers. You have enough time.
