I have 1 hour to deplane the Denver flight and get through customs and make the flight to Edmonton. Will I have to pick up my luggage and recheck it?
You shouldn't have to.

If it's two separate reservations and you have checked bags, no that is not enough time.
Do I have to exit secure area out of international and go through security again for domestic flight?

Hi, I am travelling from Melbourne Australia to LAX (Qantas) and connecting to a flight from LAX to YVR (Qantas codeshare with Westjet) arriving 11:15am into YVR.
My questions are:
1. Will I clear customs in LAX or YVR?
2. How much time do I need for connection/check in before I can take a flight from YVR to Victoria BC?
3. Will I need to change from international to domestic terminal?
Appreciate any advice.
Many thanks
You will go through US Immigration and Customs in LAX and Canadian Immigration and Customs in Vancouver. You need 3 hours for a flight on a separate reservation in Vancouver. It's all one terminal.
I am arriving in Terminal M- Main with Air Canada and taking Pacific Coastal from Terminal S- what is the distance and in what Concourse are the flights?

I am booking a flight from Hanoi, Vietnam to Victoria, B.C., Canada in late August. But the problem is that most of the flights have less than 2 hours layover in Vancouver Int. Airport.

I would like to know if 2 hours is enough for me to go through passport control, claim my luggages, clear customs, go from international arrival to domestic departure, and check-in my luggages again for the next domestic flight.

Thank you very much for your help.
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I have a flight from Mexico City to Seoul with connection in Vancouver and the time between one flight and another is 70 minutes, is that long enough?
Both flights are by air Canada,
That should be just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Hi! I am from Calgary travelling to Honolulu. I arrive in Vancouver at 4:51 pm and my flight to Honolulu leaves at 6:05 pm. Flying on Air Canada to Vancouver, then Air Canada Rouge to Honolulu (same booking). Will I have re-check baggage and go through customs? Is my layover enough time?
In Vancouver you will proceed to US Immigration and Customs preclearance where your bags should be waiting for you. You should have enough time.
Hello, We are going to be traveling from DEN to YVR and then boarding a flight to TPE. I only have an 1 hr 10 mins to transfer flights in YVR. They are both in Terminal M, so I'm hoping this will be enough time to transfer through?
That should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
My 93 mother and I are flying out of YVR. She is flying Air Canada and I am flying Alaska. Can we both go to the same check in area? She will need my assistance.
The check in area is the same but you will then have to split for you to go through US Immigration and Customs Preclearance, unless you are both heading to the US.
