I have a long layover, 7 hours, in the middle of the night. Too short for a hotel? Too long to sit at the gate. What to do?
Flying from Boston to St. John connecting through Montreal. Is 1:17 enough time to go through customs and get connecting flight to St. John?
Any suggestions?
I will leave DTE to YYZ, and then arrive at YUL on Air Canada flight # 424 at 8:13 pm and have a connecting flight to VCE on flight # 1918 at 9:00. Will I have to go through customs at YUL and will I have time to get to my connecting flight to VCE at 9:00?
There is no Canadian customs when leaving Canada. All you have to do in Montreal is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
ZAP thank you! This gives me peace of mind!
Traveling from la to London and have a stop over for two hours at Montreal. Is that enough time. And do we need to go through immigration again
You will have to go through Canadian passport control in Montreal. You should have enough time.
We are travelling in Aug- Sep 2017 with our 2 year old. On our way back to uk London we have a 2hour halt at the Montreal airport. Would that be enough time for us to catch our connecting flight. Do we need to go through immigration again.
Hi I have a flight from edmonton to frankfurt with 1 hour and 30 minutes stop at YUL Airport. Is that enough time??
Yes, if both flights are on the same reservation all you have to do in Montreal is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I am flying Air Canada from YOW to LAX with a layover in YUL. Do I go through US immigration in Ottawa or Montreal? Do I have to collect my check-in luggage in Montreal and go through security? I only have 1 hour layover, is this enough time?
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
