We’re arriving from NYC at 1:45pm and leaving for Calgary 3pm. Is that enough time to clear customs and board?
hi, I am travelling alone for the first time (very nervous) from Moncton to Cuba, connecting in Toronto that part is ok for me, but I am nervous about coming back, when I arrive in Toronto from cuba, what are the steps that I need to go through before going to my connection gate to Moncton?? I know there are a few steps like baggage, customs, security and so on..... and I'm not sure where to go and what to do when I step out of the plane. any help would be appreciated. thanks so much
I am flying from Ottawa at 6:00 arriving at Pearson at 7:05, leaving Pearson at 8:15 to Denver. Will I be able to make the Denver flight with such little time and going through US Customs? Air Canada tells me that I will make the flight!
Flying YYT to BCN through YYZ, Where do we clear customs? BCN?
Hi , I will be traveling from Budapest through Toronto, final destination Montreal. Air Canada all the way. Do I go through customs in TO? Do I claim my baggage and do I go through a security check? I have 1hr 20 minutes layover. Is it doable? Thank you :)
I am returning home to Winnipeg from England with a connection in Toronto. Air canada is telling me I don’t have to claim my baggage before clearing customs. Please advise
The airline is correct
We are flying Air Canada (all flights) from Vancouver to Toronto, and then home to Philadelphia. We land in Toronto on Wednesday at 8:00 PM and depart at 9:20 PM. Will we have to claim baggage and clear customs in Toronto? Will 1:20 be enough time? Thanks for any help.
With no delays this is enough time. You do not pick up your bags. Follow the signs in Toronto for the F Gates with an American flag. You will have to go through security screening once again and then U.S. Customs. (like the US there are no customs formalities to leave Canada). Once past U.S. Customs you may proceed to your gate and when you land in Philadelphia it will be like a domestic arrival and you just pick up your bags and leave.
I'm flying Air Canada from LAX to Tel Aviv with a 60 minute connection in Toronto. What's the process I'll need to go through in Toronto and is 60 minutes enough (3:30-4:30 p.m.).
Air Canada tells me I don't have to retrieve my bags, at least; just have to go through Canadian customs. Doable?
This is correct. You just have to follow the signs for the E Gates. You will pass through a CBSA passport control desk (this is a special area for transiting passengers only so less lines). You may be asked to go through screening again although most passengers from the US are allowed to bypass this process but it's at the discretion of the CBSA and CATSA officers. Either way with no delays you'll have enough time.
I'm flying to Vancouver from London Gatwick, with a connecting flight in Toronto Pearson and have a 1hr 20 mins layover in Tornoto. Both flights are WestJet so I'd just like to know if my luggage will be transfered over for me or will I have to re-check in my bags? And considering any other processes i.e. customs, I'll have to go through will 1hr 20 mins be enough time?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
I am considering a flight from Barcelona to Toronto (Air Canada Rouge), arrives at 2:50 pm on the Monday after US Thanksgiving) with two hours to transfer to an Air Canada flight to LaGuardia NYC that leaves at 4:50 pm.) I am a US Citizen with Global Entry, traveling with carry-on only. Is two hours enough time for this transfer?
Yes, you just proceed directly to F Gates upon arrival, which will lead you directly to security screening and U.S. Customs and then just on to your gate.
Since this is a dedicated area for International to US Connections 2 hours will be enough.
