Flying WestJet from New York to Kelowna and Air Canada on return, both with a connection at YYZ. I'm pretty sure I'm OK timewise with Customs, but will I have to go through security screening all over again at YYZ, in spite of having been cleared on my initial flights? My layovers are 1 hour 30 minutes going and 1 hour 40 minutes returning. I'm not sure that's enough time for both Customs and security.
You have enough time for your connections.
We are flying from Montreal to Seattle and have only one hour and eleven minutes overlay. Would this enough for us to pass the US custom? Thank you
Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am flying from YVR to YYZ and connecting with Turkish AIr. I pass through security in at YVR but do I need to do it again at YYZ?
If everything is on the same reservation you don't have to go through security in Toronto.
I'm flying from to Pittsburgh to Montreal with a connecting flight in Toronto. Both of my carriers are Porter Airlines. The layover 52 minutes. Will I be okay to go through customs and recheck my bags? If no, what is a reasonable time?
Your connection will actually be at Toronto-City, not Toronto-Pearson. Yes, that should be enough time.
Flying westjet from Ottawa via totonto to Nashville do I have to go thru customs in Toronto or just ottawa
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.
we are arriving gate D39 from Vancouver what is the walking distance from there to the international departure area in terminal 1 departing to Bermuda? No gate # as of yet. Thanks
Is the first flight also on Air Canada? If so it should be a 10-20 minute walk, probably closer to 10.
I am flying from Toronto to Cancun with a 1 1/2 hour layover in Miami. Do I have to pick up my luggage in Miami for the connecting flight or will it flow through? Will I have enough time if I have to pick it up? Never travelled before so I don't know what to do.
If both flights are on American then all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Miami on the way to Cancun as you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. You have enough time.
Yes they are both on American Airlines, so that is great. Thanks
Flying AIr Canada from Shanghai (PVG) to US (MDT) w/connection in Toronto. Is 1-1/2 hrs enough time to get through customs/immigration and make flight?
Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
We are flying Air Canada from Detroit to Toronto with a 2 hour 20 minute connection time to get to Terminal 3 to catch Air Transat to London. Do we have enough time to clear Canadian customs and get to Terminal 3?
That is just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Hi,
I'm British, flying from the UK to Ottawa, via Amsterdam, with KLM and Westjet. The journey is on one ticket, and KLM have said baggage should be ticketed through to Ottawa.
For our final leg, we have a transfer time of 1hr20. KLM lands in Toronto Terminal 3, and Westjet departs in terminal 3.
Will we have enough time to grab baggage, go through customs and drop the baggage off?
Many thanks!
That will be very difficult.
