We’re traveling from Yvr to grand cayman. We have short connections (45minutes) for both connections, same airline. Do we need to collect baggage or go through security for the connecting us connections?
I have a connecting flight in Vancouver that is only 1.5 hours to get to another flight to leave to Tokyo. Is this enough time to change flights? Flights are all with ANA.

Any info would be great!!
Thanks.
Is there a special permission you can get to meet child flying into YVR alone right at the gate?
I am returning to Canada from the UK on Air Canada through Vancouver then to Saskatoon, my final destination. Do I need to collect my checked luggage at YVR for transfer to YXE?
hi OA, if you are flying on air Canada all the way to Saskatoon as long as your bags are labelled for Saskatoon, you just go through the connecting flights side of arrivals, and you will not have to collect your bags. If flying on a different airline (i.e. west jet), you will have to collect your bags and check them back in again through the domestic terminal.
I have 1 hour to make a connection between a domestic flight to a US flight - both Air Canada. Can you tell me the quickest way through? Do I need to go out to the terminal and then re-enter or is there a custom/immigration for travellers in transit?
Hi, I have read the instructions on Domestic connections from an international flight in YVR. However, it neglects to advise on when/where you have to re-check your bags ?
Does anyone have any info on this please. My 17 year old daughter is flying by herself and i would like to give her instructions ahead of time.
We are arriving from Hongkong by Cathay Pacific flight at 11.40 am and we have 14.30 flight of American Airlines to Phoenix.

1 ) The connection time is enough ??
2 ) Do we have to take our luggage and re check in

Thank you
Yes, that should be enough time. You will proceed directly to US Immigration and Customs preclearance where your bags should be waiting for you (this assumes both flights are on the same reservation).
Hi,

We are flying from US to Taipei through YVR. We have an overnight layover and are planning to stay in a hotel in Richmond. Can we and should we take the checked in luggage with us?

Thanks
Celia
You have to take your bags with you.
